Styx And REO Speedwagon Raise Over $100k For Boston Bombing Victims

Styx and REO Speedwagon teamed up to offer their support to the Boston Marathon bombing victims. The classic rockers, both currently touring with Ted Nugent, have held fundraisers at their recent concerts, raising over $100,000 for the Boston One Fund.

The fund is currently collecting money to help support the families of the April 15 bombing victims, and both bands have offered up autographed guitars for charity raffles at their shows.

"Like all Americans, we have watched the events in Boston and wondered what we could do to help," explained guitarist Tommy Shaw. "We know the fans of all three bands will once again rise with us to help our friends in Boston."

"We feel such sadness for those innocent people in Boston who have suffered so much and are still suffering now," added REO Speedwagon's Kevin Cronin. "We think of those victims of senseless violence as we sign the guitar which is to be donated on their behalf each night. In our small way, we do what we do."
