    Styx (w Lawrence Gowan of Styx) - Episode 820

    It's epic season finale time, and it doesn't get more epic than the Grand Rock of Styx! Lawrence Gowan, Tommy Shaw, James J.Y. Young and the rest of the crew are ready to rock, and JP's ultimate band is great fodder for a walk through the prog-pop-hard rock landscape.
