Tommy Shaw, one of the guitar players for Styx has 65 candles on his birthday cake today. Tommy was playing in a bowling alley in Alabama when he got the call to come to Chicago to audition for Styx. Although he did fly up to Chicago, he went feeling pretty sure he wouldn't fit in.
He was the shot in the arm the band needed. (As most of you know, we here at CRRK have a very long history with Styx). The difference he made almost immediately was incredible.
Beside Styx, Tommy was also part of Damn Yankees, Shaw Blades, MSFunk and has released a great LP of bluegrass music ( Tommy Shaw- The Great Divide)
Happy Birthday T!!! How many would agree that whenever "Renegade" comes on the radio you have to crank it and sing along? And…. do you have a favorite song that he did?
