Styx Celebrated With New & Classic Interviews For October

Styx Legends Tommy Shaw & James JY Young Speak With Dave Lawrence In  Exclusive Interview Podcasts During The Month They Rock Hawaii

Styx are back in Hawaii in October for their first shows in decades! Oct. 9 at the Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu (ticketmaster.com), Oct. 10 at the MACC in Kahului (mauiarts.org), and Oct. 11 at the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island (hiltonwaikoloavillage.com). I’m celebrating with new and classic Styx interviews you don’t want to miss. Founding guitarist and vocalist James JY Young returns for a new interview — listen now in the DAVE REPORT. This one is a monster, nearly 30 minutes long, an in-depth conversation with highlights including extensive details on the separation from vocalist Dennis DeYoungand like you’ve never heard before, with the perspective of hindsight, from an original member of Styx. Plus, even more special: JY’s pilgrimage to meet rock icon Bo Diddley just weeks before he passed away. Authentic moments, personal reflections, and revealing dialogue.

To help make their rare appearance in Hawaii even more festive, for the month of October, we’ll also dig into the archives, and feature Styx guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw. I’ve been lucky to interview Tommy four times, and in the Classic Interview Player. all month, check out a spring 2005 conversation you’ll really enjoy… Hear touching details of Styx working with Chuck Berry’s legendary keyboardist Johnny Johnson, who passed away not long after recording with Styx. He tells the famous story of his “fuzzy” time in Kona with the female cabbie… Also, hear how Glen Campbell introduced Tommy to James Brown on American Bandstand with Dick Clark. Quality stories that I bet you’ll enjoy hearing, the October feature in the Classic Interview Player.

Listen and be part of this unique moment as Styx return to the Aloha State, and hear interviews with both James JY Young and Tommy Shaw.
