Dennis DeYoung

The keyboardist/vocalist of Chicago-based arena rock band, Styx, Dennis DeYoung continues to cultivate a successful solo career. Recording on his own as early as 1984, DeYoung produced four impressive solo albums -- Desert Moon, Back to the World, and Boomchild before reuniting briefly with his former bandmates in 1990.

The reunion proved to be brief, however, and Styx disbanded a second time shortly after releasing an album, Edge of the Century. DeYoung used the opportunity to record his fourth solo album, 10 on Broadway, which celebrated the influence of such composers as George and Ira Gershwin, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Tim Rice.

Although he returned to Styx when they reunited again in 1996, and played on their first studio album in eight years, Return to Paradise, a serious viral ailment that made him sensitive to light, caused him to bow out of a national tour. By the time that he recuperated, Styx had replaced him with a new singer, Lawrence Gowan. Attempting to sue over the use of the band's name, DeYoung settled out of court in late 2001. Forced to rely on his own talents, DeYoung wasted no time. He composed and recorded a musical based on Victor Hugo's novel, Hunchback of Notre Dame, played Pontius Pilate in a touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar, and re-recorded the Styx hit, "The Grand Illusion" for Siegfried and Roy's IMEX film. Tracks from his first three solo albums were compiled and released in 1999 as Ultimate Collection. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Styx is awesome
My choice for best voice of his era.
Still an amazing act to see live! I recently saw him (for the third time ever) at Summerfest 2012 in Milwaukee, WI and it was truly an outstanding show!

Stumbled into the Chicago concert in Millenium park two summers ago while out from Los Angeles. Thought I was at a real Styx concert! Was Dennis and his band but no matter because all my favorites were really Dennis DeYoung songs anyways. Open seating for a free concert so I walked up to the fourth row and just sat down! Sweet time! And to be still faithful to his high school sweetheart wife is inspiring!!! ! ! ! ! ! !

This is a REAL Styx album! Bravo Dennis! Just like Roger Hodgson's "Open the Door" is a real Supertramp album. Get both if you truly love the real songwriters behind these classic rock bands.

We saw Dennis in Grand Rapids Michigan on his tour playing Styx music and he was fantastic! I love Dennis Deyoung!
I also agree. I haven't seen them without the "Heart & Soul" of Styx - Dennis, but I can't imagine that they would be any good without him and I have been a Styx fan since the mid 70's too.
I met Dennis and his wife at a concert in SD. He is most talented and most wonderful performer I have ever met !! Dennis was Styx !! Styx just cant hold a candle to Dennis and his band. In fact most of the performers that are in his band have been with him for over 20 years. I hope he keeps going and still give us many more years of his music...

Great singer but a cawk hole in person.
i met Dennis in person, he's a great guy and an amazing performer.
I'm a younger fan but I totally agree with Tommy. I've seen Styx with and without Dennis and Styx will never be the same. Dennis is the heart and soul of Styx.
Life long Styx fan since the early 70's.
Seen 'em with and without Dennis.
Still love 'em & they still rock but will never be the same without Dennis. Most older fans agree with me on that one.
Dennis was Styx.
Love ya Dennis...
Wow.
