really, and we're just set at marking the planet with
Styx music until the day we die.

this is where so much great stuff started.

based with a secondary base in Chicago.

generally, is to perform live.
- James Young

But, there was a time when we all had a great thing
going but one person just became very uncomfortable
with it and he had to try to change it around to suit
him more and then it suited no one else but him.
- James Young

yourself composing is a discipline that takes a certain
type of mind set and Tommy has a great gift for that as did the previous guy.

but we are at a stage that we are comfortable with
it and we recognize how we are perceived and how the

for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
