This was on the AP news wire this morning:



(Chicago-AP)--The co-founder of the rock band Styx is suing his former bandmates over the use of the band's name and trademark. Dennis DeYoung calls his decision to sue former partners Tommy Shaw, James Young, and Chuck Panozzo(Puh-nah'-Zoh)"The most painful decision" of his career.

DeYoung was one of the band's founders 35 years ago and wrote and sang most of the group's hits, including "Lady", "Babe", "Come Sail Away" and "The Best Of Times"

He says a partnership deal that was renewed in 1990 by him, Shaw, Young, Panozzo and Panozzo's brother, John, required the agreement of all five on all matters concerning the band and it's trademark. John Panozzo died in 1996.

DeYoung says his being excluded from decision-making is in violation of that agreement.
