Is he is considered another new member of the band? It's a serious question.

That’s a very good question and if I had to guess I would say yes, sometime in the future I could see that happening.

So far no. 'Styx is' currently Tommy/JY/Chuck/Todd/Lawrence/Ricky and Will would be be someone they've collaborated with.

Not yet, I guess. There's more of an opportunity for him to make new music with "current Styx" than with just touring with The Guess Who with his songwriting.

Today I had time to read other forums and social media postings, is it possible that JY might retire after next year? Is he waiting until after the 50th Anniversary? It's interesting that "current Styx" fans and casual Styx fans brought this up.

With both sets of lyrics side by side there’s no comment, his hate blinds him to all reality.

The album as a whole is not as strong as Mission, but it still has plenty going for it. It's progressive in nature, production is top notch (engineered, mixed, etc.) and is just plain good. Enjoyable effort that I'll probably end up loving after many listens.

GREAT podcast of an even GREATER album. 3 days of listening to it and its FANTASTIC. To my ears it might be BETTER than ANY music I’ve heard before. Like Dennis & Tommy, GOWAN is a total SUPERSTAR . He is beyond great on this album.

As for the podcast and I’m NOT a Doctor, I don’t play one on TV & I don’t even pretend to be one at home with my family, BUT Tommy’s speaking voice doesn’t sound like Tommy Shaw at all. It kind of sounds like mine after I’ve been on a weekend cigar bender. I TRULY HOPE all’s well with his voice.

Happy Fathers Day out there to all the Dads, and to the mothers & first born’s we couldn’t of done it without you.

COTC is now the number one selling album on Amazon! Not just rock albums but all albums! It moved into the #1 spot this morning after being stuck at #2 for two days. It was also #4 on iTunes.

I thought for a while that Will could replace JY if he wants to retire

Also I noticed that Tommy thanked all prev Styx members in the liner notes. DDY kind of did the same thing in Vol 1

I’m hearing conflicting stories on if Will is in the band or not. I know he’s on this tour.

Both The Same Stardust and Crash Of The Crown credits 'Styx Is' Tommy, JY, Chuck, Todd, Lawrence and Ricky with Will being listed after a blank space.. to me that denotes he is not a member of Styx, but a collaborator... (for now?)

Current "charts" - COTC is starting to dip.. Greatest Hits has its best ranking since COTC launched!

Maybe that is a good thing then (misery loves company right?). When I did contact customer service they said to wait a few more days. A shipping notification came from DHL in Austin. Then below is a tracking number for USPS. When I click that link it says "USPS is waiting for package".

Not sure about Vol.1 but Vol.2 failed to make the top 200 album chart which came out this morning. Not sure if it made any of the sub charts. It also never ranked on Amazon or iTunes.

No change on mine, as of today it still says "shipped 3:40PM on June 16". No other updates. I contacted Styxworld and they said contact DHL. So I called DHL and they said contact Styxworld. Starting to get pissed.

DHL tracking is usually reasonable, I've got a shipment right now which tells me my package has "Departed facility" giving me a clear indication that it's in DHLs possession. If they're saying contact styxworld I would clarify with DHL that they don't have anything in their possession and they are in fact still waiting to receive the package for delviery.

I wonder what happened with the vinyl release... Both the clear and black vinyl are not available at all outside of the U.S. Supposedly delayed until Friday.. we'll see.

Album took a drop today to #46 in the Top 100 iTunes albums (#48 in Canada) and is no longer a #1 new release on Amazon. #4 in Rock and #7 overall.

Pretty strong first 4-5 days for it though

So I take it no one is the US has received the clear vinyl ordered from Styxworld? I know one person who got his but he ordered from Udiscover.
