  1. Hello Ron and long time no see! Was wondering what was going to become of the site. I've missed the forum here. I was participating in another online forum but it was a different experience then here. Mostly every topic would descend into people bickering back and forth. Also have been chatting with folks on a FB group for DDY\Styx fans. Nice to see the site up and working again. Hope that it will garner some new discussions from us fans.
  2. I also am a die hard Styx fan but, I never really liked the current version of Styx. I don't care for Gowan's performance on DDY's material and I feel that Todd over complicates things. Add to that, there was something special about the colaboration between DDY, JY and TS. With DDY out of the picture I feel something is lost. You can't recreate it with a replacement. I would agree that DDY and his band do a better job of staying true to the matetial. But again, becuase it's not the three of them together it's not exactly the same. I have found it hard to have an interest in TS' solo stuff since the split. Mainly due to how they treated DDY. They chose making money over the health and welfare of a band mate. That to to me speaks volumes to who they are as human beings. While I am hopeful for new material from DDY, I'm not sure about his motivation to do it. That is based on his comments about the offer from Frontiers. So we will see. As far as new material from the current Styx, I could care less about it. Again, with the absencse of DDY it won't be the same. That's not to say the music would be bad. Just not my cup of tea. Anyway, when it comes to new material from them, they have been like the boy who cried wolf. I think they are mainly content to touring the back catalog and the money that brings. Which I think is why there has been very very little new output from them. As far as a reunion goes, I feel the same. If it did happen, I think it would be purely for the money aspect. I think it's clear that they are unable to get past the problems they had together for it to be a true reunion.
  3. So I just ordered the box set and it shipped today. I ordered it from Elusive disc since they have a good sale price on it right now. They are out of stock as of now but, if you are interested in getting this the price may be worth the wait for them to have it restocked. Here's a link: http://www.elusivedisc.com/Styx-The-AM-Albums-1975-1984-180g-9LP-Box-Set/productinfo/AMLP71988/
  4. Your reply almost seems like a list of reasons to shut down the site.
  5. Someone posted a link to this on another site. It's a Styx tribute band doing Grove of Eglantine. as the keyboardist comments, to the best of his knowledge, Styx never performed this song live. Check it out, it's fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iW2lPsKBt5Y
  6. Maybe DDY changed the lyric from the original. He has done that. Just listen to some of the Huntchback performances on Youtube and compare them to the CD version he did.
  7. Since it has been so dead around here it makes me think that no one is interested in discussing DDY and what he is doing these days. I question whether anybody here has been going to see his shows since their not posting about it here. It's sad. The irony of it is that DDY has recently become more active online then he has been in the past. Maybe even that is too late.
  8. So has anybody here seen DDY's show since the new drummer has been in the band? If so, what are your thoughts?
  9. it's intersting that he left Respect Me off the U.S. relaease instead of just leaving it on there with the other songs added.
  10. Congrats DDY. As always, it is great that you are still bringing us the joy of your music. Hope that you will be bringing us new music in the very near future! Hope you are having "The Best of Times" on your birthday.
  11. I really enjoy heaing about what's behind the creation of his songs. It's also great to see him being active on posting to his FB page. Based on his commnets in the past about the internet in general I wouldn't have expected him to be doing so.
  12. Wonder if this is just a short term solution while he seeks out a permanent replacement? Since I didn't see anything from those shows, I have no idea what the guy filling in is like.
  13. Well that seems to clarify the what is happening. This is a shame. Hopefully Dennis will be able to find a replacement that is as good as Tom was.
  14. I think it was in a comment posted by someone on DDY's Facebook page. A Facebook user that is and not DDY.
  15. It is disappointing when this type of thing happens. But as you said you would rather see DDY doinf his thing at 100%. Nothings worse then seeing an artist struggle through a performance just because he\she is obligated to. On a side note, I read somewhere online that Tom Sharpe was going to be absent from the band for a while. Not sure if this is true or if it releated to these postponed shows.
