Whatcha wanna bet that the next Styx album will be produced by Jack Blades with 3/4 of the songs being Shaw/Blades co-writes.
I'll take that bet. There is a band out there touring right now that has no less than FIVE songwriters, and there is no reason to call on Jack. Not meant as a slight to Jack, in any way, but I think that there is enough creativity among those five individuals, that others won't need to be called in.
AND, for the record, I've been reading this board for about two years, just never felt a need to post before. And, ALSO, for the record, this is my one and only screen name that I will ever use on here. I don't feel the need to be "Shawn" and "Todd" under the same screen name, or "Elaine", and "Ann", and "Jan".
Also, Rather Large Canine (and I think that's QUITE clever, by the way), Dennis had my total support until he started his campaign of slamming the last Styx album (because he didn't produce it), and slamming the current tour ("What are they doing playing Akron?"). I was told quite a while ago by people who should know that "He is not going to take this lying down." What I was NOT told was that he was going to try to destroy Styx. And my opinion is that if Styx is truly being destroyed, then it's Dennis that's doing it. Intentionally. So much for his PASSION about his life's work.
And I'm not even donning a flame suit.
