ive seen styx and dennis deyoung solo over the past couple of years---it just reinforced what i always knew

dennis deyoung was styx---he was much better than the band although i enjoyed them both

well said, Robb. Pandora is a gift to me and remember this song by Styx reminds me/us to not be an angry young man. Too bad the young is not as accurate as it used to be. Peace.

For those complaining about the lyrics: not Pandora's fault. It's Gracenote. If Pandora did its own service instead of using Gracenote, it would cost a lot more to operate. And as much as Gracenote sucks, it's more complete than any other music database out there.

Fooling Yourself has a great message and still holds up when done live to this day. Music does have power.

These came from the Chicago area in the 70's where the played just about every high school in the area before hitting it big.

I saw the guys recently in a small venue concert in a casino near Phoenix. Still sound as good as ever, and Chuck Pannozzo was even here with them. Dennis was the main lead singer during the heyday of the band, but Lawrence Gowan has a very similar sound. Most of the differences emerged when Dennis was going more theatrical/b r o a d w a y and Tommy and JY wanted to stay rock.As you listen to songs penned by both sides, you can hear the rift growing.

Dennis is Dennis DeYoung THE true voice of the band who had to stop touring for an extended time because of health issues... as well as the normal creative disputes that seem to happen with all successful groups. He normally won over Tommy Shaw because he was right and was backed up by the other band members - still would be nice to see them all together again now that Dennis is healthy once more...
