I think it pretty much boils down to each members committment to their original projects/bands; Night Ranger, Styx, Teds solo career....these are their money makers.

Damn Yankees was a side project/collaboration when the above bands were in a bit of turmoil or heading to a complete stop.
Sure Damn Yankees are a favorite of mine personally, and many others...but if they haven't done anything by now...its pretty much looking at the writing on the wall....its done and over with.

Plus, I have a feeling that even though John Kalonder (sp?) from Portriat Records was floating the bill on their 3rd album...I think Warner Bros. still owns the rights to the band and their catalog.
So it might not be so much the band members that do not want to do anything per se......it might be the label interfering .

* Look at Cinderella, and all their issues with their label and preventing them from recording another studio album. It might be parallel to the same story?

Though it does surprise me with AOR/Hard Rock making a nice comeback...I would not see why there would be any reason why a Damn Yankees album that is released would not be successful.
