I am watching and reading these tributes and breaking down sobbing.  Our music heroes are starting to go and this one is the toughest so far for me.

I checked the set list for yesterday's Styx concert here.

The Styx song before the Neil Peart tribute by coincidence is 'Too Much Time On My Hands'.

Peart admitted that the inspiration for "too many hands on my time" in 'The Analog Kid' is from 'Too Much Time On My Hands' according to here.

Whoa!
As me being one of Styx' biggest fans this is really cool to me.
Now I just wonder if Rush inspired Styx at all...

Gowan is great. And Tommy posted a lovely note as well. If you know me on here, you know they’re my Other Band.

I wanted to like this post, and a lot of others, but for the first time in my nearly 6 years on here, I have discovered there is a daily like quota, and I have reached it. Dang.

Amazing.  

I love STYX.  They always pay homage to our fallen rock heroes.  Pure class.

Beautiful!  This touched me. :heart:
Usually, I never have trouble putting my thoughts into words, but I just can't seem to right now.

Thank you, RushFanForever for posting this.
