Happy birthday to me!

From icon vs. icon:
Tommy Shaw, guitarist of legendary rock band Styx, is set to release his debut Bluegrass album, “The Great Divide” on March 22nd, 2011...
Now I realize this might freak some folks out. I must say I am pleasantly surprised. I already knew he played mandolin, since he played it a couple of times with Styx--I'm pretty sure he played it on "Boat on the River" from Cornerstone, for example. His voice seems--to me--to have that high, keening timbre that is well-suited for bluegrass.

The album is to released on CD, vinyl and digital formats. I will definitely be looking to download it come the 22nd.

Check out the link, there's an interesting video that's mostly talking with a little music.
