  Mr. Pannozzo, I recently found a STYX trading card which I would like to send to you so it could be autographed for my collection. Please send me your mailing address. Thanks so much for your time and kindness! Peace and good health always, Jeff Lysiak

  Hello Chuck,
I grew up in the 70's and 80's at the height of Styx rise to mega stardom and still have all the record albums I bought at that time ( I still show ofgthe laser etching on Paradise Theater to my friends..lol). Most I have upgraded to CDs I am still trying to figure out how to store digitally on my laptop.
I read your story about yourself and felt a connection as you talked about feeling different from other kids. I felt that way growing up as a gay boy. There were not many people back then who could see a gay person as more then a stereotypical caracature created by media representation of what a gay man is. I knew I was not that. I was not feminine at all so disclosure was the only way my secret would be discovered so I spent years fearfully keeping to myself. I was the type of kid who spent most of my home time alone in my room listening to records and daydreaming about a life I imagined where I could be accepted and loved.
I was glad to find out you were gay like me and that you were so brave to share some about your experiences. I guess all the time growing up I felt like the only one but you were struggling as I was. It's a totally different world now and being gay is much more tolerated now. Thank God!
I was fortunate enough to see Styx at Saratoga Springs (SPAC). Great show. I am from Upstate New York but live outside of Sarasota, Florida now.
I hope you continue to stay strong and enjoy yourself. You seem like a kind and down to earth person as well as a talented musician. I wish you the best and thanks for sharing your story.

Tighe

  Your story inspired me to add a comment. My daughter came out as gay a couple years ago. We, her dad and I, have always supported love in its many forms. My wish for her, and you, and all, is to find love that uplifts the soul, that carries her/you/all thru bad days and provides inspiration during the many good days. Thank you for your work on behalf of gay rights.
Signed,
A Fan of Love in its many Forms

  Chuck,

I am sitting here listening to all of my Styx Albums and just smiling because your music is incredible. I listen to the drums and remember your Brother John, one of my favorite drummers of all time, may he rest in forever paradise.

Thank you for this site. There is NO reason whatsoever Styx is not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. You are hall of famers in the eyes of your fans.

  Chuck,
Just wanted to say that while you do not consider yourself a hero you are at a minimum my role model. I picked up the bass later in life and have taught myself to play using tabs and backing tracks to many songs namely Styx songs.
Your persistence through your illness to continue playing has helped me persevere when I just felt like giving up. Music is my happy place as well and you have made it all the happier. Thanks for being you pal.

  My first proper concert was the Kilroy tour. I took up playing bass mostly because of you and your brother. I still say the best rhythm section I've ever heard.

I brought the pickguard from my Jazz bass to a show in Seattle. You, John and Dennis signed it for me. So cool.

I wear a rainbow "ally" badge with my work ID to let coworkers know they can be themselves around me. I'm grateful to examples like you. PRIDE. No doubt.

Peace, love and good health to ya.
Larry

  Hi there - hope you're doing well, Chuck. Thanks to my parents - I grew up on the music of Styx. Good stuff - I guess I've always been a closet fan. I got to meet you several years ago when you made an appearance at the Gay Softball World Series that I played in annually. Thanks for your voice & generosity to our league. I hung up my cleats & glove (kind of), but was listening to some Styx tonight & thought to say hello. Be Well, Frank
