On this Six-Pack episode, Brian Linnen of The Permanent Record Podcast and Alex Alt of the Sly Dog Music-Cast rejoin Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to explore the work of James “JY” Young of Styx. JY scored the first hit for the band with “Best Thing” back in 1972 and he’s been a staple ever since – even releasing a few solo albums along the way. We cover a lot of ground including some of those solo tracks in this six pack. Lot of laughs, personal stories about seeing Styx and JY solo, a few impressions (naturally), lyrical analysis, and lots of fun factoids. Also, find out who wins a Dr Righteous bucket of fried chicken when Eric springs a surprise trivia question on his co-hosts!
So sit back and discover or rediscover the unique stylings of JY!
