One of the most dynamic and entertaining bands on tour right now is rock music legends- Styx. The band, which currently consists of classic line-up members Tommy Shaw - guitar/vocals, and James Young - guitar/vocals, along with Canadian progressive rock superstar, Lawrence Gowan - keyboards/vocals, Todd Sucherman - drums, and Ricky Phillips - bass, has been rocking fans all summer long with a hit-filled set list and a high-energy show.
Although the summer might be winding down, one of the most anticipated shows of the season is still to come. On Tuesday, August 19th, Styx will be rocking the music fans of WNY with a concert at the award winning Artpark in Lewiston, NY. Tickets for this event can be purchased here.
What follows is an exclusive Rock Music Star interview with Lawrence Gowan of Styx. During this interview, we discuss the upcoming show at Artpark, and much more. Here's what Lawrence had to say:
Rock Music Star: Hey Lawrence, thank you for calling us here at Rock Music Star. I want to start off by talking about your upcoming show at Artpark in Lewiston, NY. Many music fans around are really excited about seeing Styx perform at Artpark.
Lawrence Gowan: Yeah, I remember playing there maybe five years ago. It was awesome. It was a huge crowd; I felt like Caesar in Rome. The crowd was so spectacular on that evening. I'm really looking forward to playing there again.
LG: Yeah, it's going to be fun. I'm glad we're coming back, too!
RMS: Artpark is, in a way, kind of like a hometown show for you, because you still live not that far away, in Toronto, right?
LG: I live in Toronto. Yes, my dad is still there; he’s 90 years old now. I was just talking to him five minutes ago. Yeah, I grew up there, and I’m still entirely connected there. I’ve got my house there, I’ve got a studio there, I’ve got lots of memories there.
