“I called up [Styx’s] Tommy Shaw last summer and we were both thinking the same thing: Let’s get the boys together, make some music, and have some fun,” REO frontman Kevin Cronin said in a news release. “REO Speedwagon and Styx together is a head-first plunge into the fountain of youth, an unstoppable force of nature. Add the amazing Don Felder to the mix and it’s a thundering slam dunk.”
