I don't think Dennis does receive anything for them playing his songs. I think that is one of the reasons he filed a lawsuit against them. Maybe Rocker Chic will read this and let us know. She probably knows the answer to that question.

The difference to me is that David Gilmore never says in public constantly that he hates Roger Waters songs. Tommy Shaw does say that about Dennis Deyoung's songs. He even made fun of "Babe" in concert with the Damn Yankees. I love Tommy Shaw as a musician but his actions are not very classy at all. I've heard Dennis can be a baby and hard to get along with at times but I can't imagine what Dennis could have done to warrant the treatment he gets from Tommy Shaw. On the VH1 special Dennis seemed very humbled to me and very willing to try and fix whatever problems he and Tommy have. Tommy on the other hand seemed like he would never budge. He has complete control of the band now and he ain't sharing it with Dennis. However...it's fine to play Dennis's songs that made Styx so popular. I say let's see this Tommy Shaw' Styx on their own merits with NO songs from Dennis at all. If you're going to mouth off like Tommy and JY have then they need to go ahead and take it the rest of the way. If they hate Dennis's songs then don't play them!
