When's the last time I posted here?
I AM SEEING STYX ON 16TH OF SEPTEMBER! YOWZA YOWZA.
And getting into Styx, I had to see what this guy Gowan who had replaced Dennis Deyoung over ten years ago (and yet some fans can't seem to move on...) was all about.
So, I've been on youtube, randomly looking up stuff by him. (But sparingly. I don't like to go all at once now...)
And these are my three favorite songs. (And I really like the video to "The Good Catches Up". IDK)
1. A Criminal Mind - He doesn't do this very often with Styx, but when they're in Canada, apparently they always do. (Lawrence Gowan is Canadian and was pretty big there back in the day.) Fantastic song. Watch as the ladies go mad for JY's solo, Tommy rocking out on his mandolin and Glen's circus tent pants.
2. Strange Animal - IN MY HEAD FOR DAYS! It's a good tune. And a 80s video. Have a giggle at the 80s-ness of it. But seriously, Gowan, if you wanna be all Encino Man, then loose some more clothes!!
3. The Good Catches Up - Inside the warped healing mind of Gowan for sure. I really like his hair in this video... And the handcuffs probably don't hurt either. PLUS Lawrence in drag!
4. I'll Be There In a Minute
- Did I just watch this video now for formal wear Gowan? Yes. Did I expect him to progressively undressed? No. Any regrets? NOT A ONE. Also, best youtube comment: "Mr. Gowan's House of Booty Calls ... Larry speaking."
OH HEY! MY STYX TICKETS CAME IN THE MAIL!!
