STYX - Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips (along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo), have performed more live since ’99 than all of the previous years of its career combined. Two Super-Bowl appearances, Pollstar Box Office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon, Bad Company (to name only a few), two more studio albums and no end in sight, STYX continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.
Spawned from a suburban Chicago basement in the early ‘70s, Styx would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late '70s and early '80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads.
The band Redline was formed in 1981. The founding members were Dave Becker on drums, Brad Schwartz on bass, Kevin Kugel on guitar and vocals, Todd Davis on guitar, keyboard, vocals, and Kim Wilbee Miller on vocals. Some line-up changes began in 1985 leading to Redline's last performance on New Year's Eve 1989. The band did a few 'Redline Reunion' shows over the years but never considered reforming.
In April 2010, Dave, Kevin, Todd, Kim, & bass player Greg Jans got together to play just for fun. This became the rebirth of Redline and the start of the 'Re-Living The Dream Tour. Most of their playlist today is the same Top 40 rock songs they performed 30 years ago that are now timeless classic rock.
