That's cool that you are such a Tommy Shaw fan. I am also a big Tommy Shaw fan. His rock material mixed with Dennis's Theatrical sounding material was what I loved about Styx. The contrast between the two writing styles and the way they made both styles work with one overall sound. I would not except a Styx tour without Tommy Shaw anymore than I accept one without Dennis DeYoung.

That wasn't really my question though, I just think that if they can put down Dennis material so whole heartedly in public then why are they playing it? I can answer that actually, I just wanted to see if any of the "New Styx" fans would answer it correctly.

The answer is because Dennis' songs are the ones that get the most recognition. "Come Sail Away" was on Southpark, "Mr. Roboto" was in that car commercial, and "Babe" was in the "Big Daddy" movie. If they want to make a go of it without Dennis and exclude him completely then they should have the balls to exclude him and everything he has done for the band. What they are doing is using Dennis material to help them get booked in better places. If that's not a double standard, then I don't know what is!! "We hate Dennis and his songs but we will play them anyway so we can have some credibility!" That's BS Paul! Even if you don't like Dennis, you have to admit that's a pretty crappy way for the band to treat him.

Tommy Shaw is not Styx, "Lady" was a huge hit before Tommy was even in the band. Dennis Deyoung and Tommy Shaw are Styx. You don't have those two in the band then forget about it....that's my opinion anyway.
