Top 5 Must-See Phoenix Shows This Weekend

Styx - Talking Stick Resort - Saturday

The key to any band's longevity is the ability to maintain a core sound while changing to lure new generations of fans. The Rolling Stones are the quintessential example, having survived 50 years on gritty rock 'n' roll licks that receive fresh infusions of timely sound forms (from country to disco) to keep the band in popular focus.

After changing a few members over the years or taking a long hiatus, the task can seem insurmountable. Styx is one band that has managed to stay relevant despite those obstacles -- by updating its sound on new albums but also by reworking and re-recording the classic hits that made the band one of the biggest acts of the '70s and '80s. -- Glenn BurnSilver
