Rick Keene Music Scene – Album Release of The Week

Not many albums are great.

Most new albums contain four or five great tracks and the rest are fillers. Not by choice – it is just the nature of the beast. It is hard to write ten or more great songs. It is hard to come up with new stuff in 2019.

It turns out young dogs can teach old tricks. Old school music tends to endure. Old school rhythms cannot be beat.

Have a listen below to some tracks from the album of the week. Ben Racine Band Live a Montreal.

Rick Keene Music Scene; Styx Headlining ‘Strangers in the Night 13’ – August. 25th at Fairview Pte Claire

The word ‘ legendary ‘ is tossed around more often than a flea – bit peanut monkey … 

In the case of the Rock band Styx, legendary may be an understatement.

Formed in 1972 , in Chicago – the band took the seventies and eighties music scene by storm. Hit after hit propelled them into super-stardom and all these years later, their popularity remains greater than ever.

The album Grand Illusion‘ (1977) with songs like the title track and ‘Fooling Yourself‘ was one of the discs that topped the charts and the fan’s hearts. ‘Pieces of Eight ‘ ( 1978), ‘Cornerstone’ (1979) and ‘Paradise Theatre’  (1981) came next. These albums sold more than two million copies each making Styx the first band to release four consecutive Triple-platinum albums.

‘Lady’, ‘ Come Sail Away’, ‘ Renegade’, ‘Blue Collar Man’ – the list is as long as one of their monumental shows. Sitting is not an option at a Styx show especially since Canadian Lawrence Gowan joined the band in early 2000.

Gowan

On August 25th 2017, Styx will be headlining Strangers in the Night 13. The charity event should be the best one night yet !

Please listen below to Gowan  dictate The Top Ten Reasons Why He Joined Styx, some words from Tommy Shaw about his first summer concert and some great Styx songs !

Stay tuned for more fantastic Styx-related stuff as the show gets closer !

Thanks for listening ! Talk soon !
