BidForGreen and Shaw/Blades | Styx Sign Agreement

Environmental solutions provider BidForGreen announced today that they will be fuelling the famed rock band Styx and Tommy Shaw’s side project Shaw/Blades in 2007-2008.

BidForGreen, which fuels Willie Nelson, Pat Matheny and Merle Haggard among others, will provide biodiesel and logistics for the tours. The service has been popular with artists, who get access to quality biofuel, and to drivers, who get help with logistics and delivery.

Tommy Shaw, legendary guitarist and singer for Styx and Shaw/Blades, wrote a blog for BidForGreen highlighting his interest in the company’s services: “Bid For Green is doing what needed to be done–creating a data base of fuel suppliers and setting up accounts so that it has been made even easier for us to use biodiesel than to spend the time fueling up in the stinky line at the truck stop, something we’ve all accepted as part of traveling by tour bus.”

Shaw/Blades—Styx/Damn Yankees guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw and Night Ranger/Damn Yankees bassist/vocalist Jack Blades—is currently touring the U.S. in support of their critically acclaimed INFLUENCE album, which was released March 6 on VH1 Classic Records.

BidForGreen President Dale Wiley was ecstatic with the addition of Styx and Shaw/Blades to their roster. “Many of my teenage hours were spent listening to ‘Blue Collar Man’ and ‘Renegade.’ Tommy Shaw is really ahead of the curve on environmental issues, and it is a pleasure to work with him.”

Shaw’s blog on the environment can be viewed at Shaw also conducted an interview with BidForGreen, which can be seen on the site.
