John Panozzo
I Never got the privilege of meeting John. It is my loss. From the way his brother and bandmates talk about him he would have been a cool person to know. Unfortunately I will never get that chance. John died the summer of 1996 to the shock of all us fans. But in show biz the Show must go on. And it did. Styx dedicated the rest of that tour and really the next one too, to John. As for the fans, we tried to show our appreciation for all the music he had given us through the years. From Lighting white candles at all the shows to writing tributes in letters and webpages, I hope we showed John's family and friends that we shared their pain and celebrated his life.
