Tommy Shaw wrote and sang Styx songs such as "Renegade" and "Too Much Time on My Hands." He's enshrined in the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. He co-fronted Damn Yankees, probably the third-worst 'supergroup' of all time (after Bad English and the Ratt/Cinderella hybrid Arcade). He has an official Web site, and it's pretty damn awful.
However, this isn't about Tommy. I just visited his page to distract me from the crazy gaze of "business professional by day, creative soul by night" Tammy Shaw, owner of the most nightmarish pair of "dreamy eyes" ever to bore into your soul through a browser window. Tammy paints normal stuff, like fruit and leaves and flowers. She also draws some odder subjects, such a bashful woodlands nymph and a linebacker-built baby ready to brawl with whoever disemboweled him. But things really get scary when it comes to the (NWS) boudoir photography and "life drawings," one of which connects the two Shaws. I can see this Tammy creation being a Tommy groupie. Looks about right.
Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
