    Looks like the same one Tommy played a couple of years ago here in Oklahoma City. Nice to see him still playing it.

    tommy is no Angus Young but the guy can play. The thing about him that impresses me most is his vocal range... amazing that he can still hit all the notes so clearly.

    What I liked about Styx was that they were actually
    better live than on their recordings, unlike some others.

    I gotta wonder if those stacks are like the ones
    pictured in the "truth about Marshall stacks" thread.
    Every time I see a row of them I wonder......

    Yeah, they had some great vocal harmonies - all stacked ABOVE the melody.

    I suspect the marshall stacks were strictly for show but don't know. Was a fun concert and the warmup band... gin blossum was pretty good too although they didn't have nearly as much stage presence as styx did.
