I am always stumped at this time of year for a perfect Christmas gift. And I'm probably not the only one. Ties and cologne have been done to death. But how about concert tickets for two of the rockin'est bands ever? Oh, and a really interesting special guest.I saw REO Speedwagon and Styx first, when they played at my high school after basketball games. That was 45 years ago; a lot of tours, a lot of miles. But you see them on channels like AXS and they're still rocking. And you know all the songs.

Sure, like every Behind the Music, on VH-1, there are stories of egos clashing, and more than a little over indulgence, but this is a chance, for a couple of hours, to relive a small portion of our youth, to feel young again.

So a pair of tickets for REO and Styx might make the perfect gift under the tree. And here's where it gets really interesting; the special guest is former Eagle guitarist Don Felder. Felder is the man responsible for Hotel California. 'Nuff said.

That's like seeing parts of three of the greatest band in stadium rock history.
