Styx have announced that Terry Gowan will replace Ricky Phillips as the rock band’s bassist.

Phillips bid farewell to Styx in March after being a part of the band for more than two decades.

“It is within an honor and somewhere beyond a dream come true to be joining JY, Tommy, Chuck, Will, and my brother Lawrence – and to be reacquainted with decade-long Gowan band mate Todd – in taking on the mantle as the new bassist of the legendary STYX,” said the new bassist. “Here’s to many years ahead on the Styx adventure!”.

Styx keyboardist Lawrence Gowan said he is pleased and proud to have his brother, Terry, join the group.

“Terry played on four of my six solo Gowan albums,” he added. “He’s on records that include some of the world’s most renowned musicians: Tony Levin, Jerry Marotta, Jon Anderson, and Alex Lifeson, as well as touring with Gowan from 1985 to 1990 and again 2010 to this year of 2024. It’s really great to have him aboard!”

Styx’s Renegades & Juke Box Heroes co-headlining tour with Foreigner and special guest John Waite will begin on June 11.

Styx guitarist Tommy Shaw revealed to Ultimate Classic Rock that Phillips’ departure had been a difficult experience.
