Where would Journey, Reo Speedwagon, and Styx had gone without these guys...
+1Journey wouldn't have happened as Schon founded Journey
I think we all saw what happened to REO when Richrath, uhh, departed.....
I offer up that Tommy Shaw saved Styx from obscurity....great voice, writer and musician!
absolutely..his bleeding heart lyrivs/singing actually contrasted well with richraths rock n roll playing...but once richrath got the boot, reo went down the crapperyea, i think James Young was a great player in Styx as well.
Schon always had too many effects on his solo's, but he is a great player.
Kevin Kronin (sp?) ruined REO.....Richrath made me want to play a Les Paul.
