The song Grand Illusion with help from everyone in Styx became not only the albums theme but one hell of a show opener.Thanks to Tom Short for remembering something so important from my big blabbing mouth.To that point I had not considered myself a songwriter but more of a singer keyboardist in a cover band.I had written a song years before for TW-4 called So Long Now that we rarely played but other than that my only solo song writing attempt had been "I'm Gonna Make Ya Feel It" which we first recorded in 1971. It has been a mystery to me all these years as to how I came up with Lady in the first place.The ground breaking guitar sounds and the immediate catchiness of the songs guaranteed them headline status.We opened the show and as I recall it was a great success primarily for the kids and the Marines who sponsored the show for underprivileged children.A terrific anti war movie set in a German prisoner of war camp during WWI.
Two years went by with many upheavals for me personally and professionally not least of which were changes in personnel within Styx.Both bands did a fine job for the sellout crowd at the Omni.Tom Scholz the guitar player and keyboard wiz was the mastermind behind the group and remains so to this day.Cheers, Dennis More Than A Feeling Hey everybody, The last time I stood on a stage with the band Boston was in 1976 at a Toys for Tots show.Their first album "Boston" with tunes like More Than A Feeling, Long Time, Smokin and my favorite Foreplay had saturated the airwaves since it's summer release.My memory tells me I was listening to King Crimson's "Court of the Crimson King" at that time and maybe the images of kings and queens and lords and ladies was lurking in my subconscious.Or was it "What Has Come Between Us" a song given to us to record that contained the lyrical chorus "Lovely Lady" that I thought sounded pretty cool that once again had seeped into my brain.I had decided to turn my one car garage into a small rehearsal space for the band while we assembled some songs for our first record.It was in this garage that I wandered out one day in hopes of writing a song that would make the album.Sadly Tom one of my very best friends passed away in his early fifties from colon cancer, far, far to young to say the least.His two favorite bands in the world were Led Zeppelin and you guessed it Styx. Thanks again Tom, I'll picture you now in a gathering of angels.
