Styx Guitarist Loves Biodiesel, But Hates Trees

New, 19 comments

Look through the Styx web site and you'll find a band committed to "green initiatives," using biodiesel while on the road, and partnering with Bid for Green. But look through yesterday's post on the Mulholland Tree Massacre TM and neighbors tell a very different story. It seems the pine-pummeling perpetrator is none other than Styx guitarist and his wife, Tommy and Jeanne Shaw. And the insults and accusations between the Styx supporters and neighbors are flying. The neighbors would prefer the Shaws Come Sail Away. Certainly, These Are Not The Best Of Times. In troubled times such as these, we must seek out comfort in the warm bosom of our favorite adult contemporary rock band and their song Fooling Yourself. Lyrics after the jump.

You see the world through your cynical eyes
You're a troubled young man I can tell
You've got it all in the palm of your hand
But your hand's wet with sweat
And your head needs a rest
And you're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
Why must you be such an angry young man
When your future looks quite bright to me
And how can there be such a sinister plan
That could hide such a lamb
Such a caring young man
