One thought on “Russell, John book first date of ‘Union’ tour

  1. shhhhhhhhh I’m a closet fan of Styx. I thought The Grand Illusion was brilliant. Came out when I was 20 and a Junior in college in Winter Park, FL coming from the beach in my 1974 Plymouth Maroon Duster 4 -speed with and 8 track player and cassette listening to WDIZ out of Orlando. It was heavenly.
