Notes from STYX on the Road #36


Hello Friends,

We are on the highway after playing last night in Pittsburgh. Next stop, Mobile, Alabama. Yes, long drive, but sometimes that is the best time to catch up on your beauty sleep. Come to think of it, after looking in the mirror, perhaps we should drive to Costa Rica!

The show last night was unforgettable. Once the audience established that they would not be refused standing as close to the stage as they could get, the energy level seemed to have no point at which it would stop rising. It was a LOUD and good humored bunch of STYX fans there at the Palumbo Center. At one point during "Rockin' the Paradise" a blonde fan marched up to me and handed me a full box of popcorn. I accepted it, and figured, "What the heck?" and stuck it between my left arm and the left side of my body and kept on playing and singing, stopping only to grab a handful of the snack every couple of bars. I walked over to Glen and JY and you should have seen the looks on their faces. I do not recall ever eating snacks during the show. Glen mentioned to me later that I had made quite the mess by my mic and he only noticed after feeling a scrunching sensation under his feet when he stood there to sing later on in the set.

The folks who made it up to the front were hell bent on having on heck of a good time, and it was our pleasure to provide some tunes for their personal parties.

Kim Christopher's parents came to the show last night and we had a nice chat as I was leaving. Glen spent some time with them earlier and we were humbled by their presence. Kim meant a lot to us and she remains a symbol of strength and hope in the face of overwhelming adversity. We can all find some gratitude in our own lives that we never have had to face the challenges that she did on a daily basis. Kim has been a great fan and a real inspiration to us all.

Now, on to Mobile and a night off! Thank you Pittsburgh for a wild ride on the STYX pony.
