Hello Colorado!

AUGUST 7, 2004

Hello Friends,

We arrived in Grand Junction, Colorado yesterday evening right at magic hour, when the golden light just before sunset was creating a breathtaking view of one of the most beautiful landscapes in America--the sandy buttes and mesas surrounding Grand Junction. Timing is everything.

Even before arriving, as we waited in Denver to make our connection, passengers headed for other Colorado locations were showing us the hospitality Colorado is famous for. The fellow passengers on the plane to Grand Junction were even helping Daniel and JY as they worked to solve the USA Today Crossword Puzzle.

Despite the homogenization of America the since Cable/Satelite television and the Internet showed us how we should look and dress, and corporate franchise businesses made most suburban streets look the same, it is the people themselves who define regions.

Take Los Angeles for example. Pedestrians have rights. There are pedestrian crosswalks at most intersections. If you don't stop, you will get a talking to by those in the crosswalk. If you're walking in LA, it's a good thing. Local drivers are accustomed to complying and it's something that defines the California state of mind. Chicago is completely different. City drivers rule the road and if you as a pedestrian dare to test this, you'll find out just how serious they are. I love the Chicago attitude. Two days ago I was walking across LaSalle on Ontario. The light was still green for LaSalle traffic but there was almost a block between the oncoming cars and me. I took off across the intersection and just looked to my right to see the cars approaching. I could actually hear the cars accelerating towards me and made eye contact to see just how serious they were. I love Chicago! So, despite the influence of steady media exposure, there is still an individuality in America that has yet to be tamed.

Colorado is so beautiful it's impossible to capture in the frame of a photograph and even hard to remember accurately.

I looks like it's gonna be a perfect night for a STYX show here in Colorado and after a couple of days off in Chicago, we are ready to rock.

On a sad note for me, the morning after our incredible show at the Vic Theater, I found out that my dear friend for the past 24 years, Bobby Ricco, had passed away the day before. He had died of a heart attack at 43 years of age. Bobby and his family have two restaurants in Palm Springs, California, one of which has been in the family for two generations and was once Frank Sinatra's favorite hang out there. He leaves behind a wife and two young boys. It's sad beyond words. Bobby was there when I injured my right arm in Palm Springs on a break during the Kilroy Was Here tour in 1983. He helped me recuperate so that I we could return to the tour. He was there when Jeanne and I got married. He was there for my surprise 50th birthday party. The last time I saw him was at the Universal Amphitheater when we played there recently. He was a big fan of STYX and he will certainly be missed. When we play "One With Everything" tonight, I'll be thinking of my friend.

See you there!
