Styx is doing two shows in Minnesota this week and lead singer Lawrence Gowan called in to tell us all about touring, the bus fire, multi-generational fans, pranking the members of the band and crew and one of my favorite subjects: hockey.

You’re on stage together, you’re off stage together, you’re rehearsing, you’re writing; do you ever just want to escape?

Speaking of staying on your toes, do you ever pull pranks on each other?

Finally, Lawrence is from Canada, so we HAD to talk hockey!

Thank you so much to Lawrence Gowan of Styx for calling in! He’s a neat guy, a great performer and a friend of the station.

You can catch Styx, Foreigner and Don Felder Thursday night at Target Center in Minneapolis and then they’re playing again Friday at Moondance Jam in Walker. Don’t miss it!
