My guess is that it boils down mainly to economic issues. Tommy makes a lot of money touring with Styx...more than Jack does in Night Ranger and more than Ted does touring solo. Tommy has the most to lose economically in the equation though I suspect a Damn Yankees tour would see all of them taking a bit of a pay cut. Maybe there are some interpersonal or political issues but I truly suspect it boils down mainly to money and none of them have many years left to earn money playing shows. They need to cash in while they still can.

Andrew, did you ever actually hear the ill-fated third Damn Yankees album? I personally would love to hear it because I enjoyed their first two CD's and I also got to see Damn Yankees in concert back in 1993 or so out in Seattle. They rocked! :)
