Both bands did a fine job for the sellout crowd at the Omni.Tom Scholz the guitar player and keyboard wiz was the mastermind behind the group and remains so to this day.Suzanne and I and Carrie Ann were living in Park Forest, Illinois in a two bedroom ranch we had recently purchased.JY's father who owned a construction business was tearing out a bunch of acoustic ceiling tiles out of the University of Chicago and had asked if we had any use for them.The song Grand Illusion with help from everyone in Styx became not only the albums theme but one hell of a show opener.Thanks to Tom Short for remembering something so important from my big blabbing mouth.I had decided to turn my one car garage into a small rehearsal space for the band while we assembled some songs for our first record.It was in this garage that I wandered out one day in hopes of writing a song that would make the album.

It could have all these things, I really can't say because I had never written much so I was clueless that Lady was in fact special.Hey everybody, "Way back in 1972 I was sitting in my garage with a little Wurlitzer electric piano when this song popped out and started this whole train a rolling".This was a line I came up with for the the Paradise Tour in 1996 briefly describing how the song Lady was written.Sadly Tom one of my very best friends passed away in his early fifties from colon cancer, far, far to young to say the least.His two favorite bands in the world were Led Zeppelin and you guessed it Styx. Thanks again Tom, I'll picture you now in a gathering of angels.He said whatever happened to that idea you had about naming the album The Grand Illusion.The minute he said it I thought thank God he remembered it because I had completely forgotten about it. I sat down and attempted to write a song that could not only be a theme for the record but also the ultimate show opener.My memory tells me I was listening to King Crimson's "Court of the Crimson King" at that time and maybe the images of kings and queens and lords and ladies was lurking in my subconscious.Or was it "What Has Come Between Us" a song given to us to record that contained the lyrical chorus "Lovely Lady" that I thought sounded pretty cool that once again had seeped into my brain.Throw in Brad Delps supersonic vocals and Ya got somethin.Turn on any classic hits or classic rock station today and you might think it's still 1976, thats how monumental that record was.
