Description

2005, Big Bang Theory is the first studio album from Styx, one of the rock era's most popular bands, since 2003's Cyclorama. Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars), James JY Young (vocals, guitars), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums) and Ricky Phillips (bass guitar, backing vocals)
Among the highlights on the 14-selection Big Bang Theory, produced by Styx and Gary Loizzo, is Blue Collar Man 2004, a new studio version of the band's 1978 Top 40 hit. Guesting on the track are blues great Koko Taylor and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame piano player Johnnie Johnson, renowned for his work with Chuck Berry. Blue Collar Man 2004 was recorded in the Chicago building that once housed Chess and is now home to Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation, to which all artist royalties from the song will be donated. Heard too is their live version of I Am The Walrus recorded in September 2004.
The other songs re-recorded by Styx in its own instantly recognizable style are classics of the '60s and '70s, many of them favorites of the band members and their fans.
