He was the main voice of Styx from 1970 until 1999 and he’d like a proper goodbye for the fans. There has been attempts through the years but nothing came to fruition.

The former lead voice of the band told Rock Candy Magazine, “After being replaced in Styx, everyone around me encouraged me to try and stop them legally, I just couldn’t. It would have been like suing myself, and I held out hope they’d ask me back. They toured under the Styx name for a year and a half before I initiated legal action. I didn’t sue for money or use of the name. I simply wanted back in the band.“

DeYoung added, “The fans want a reunion, and I’ve wanted one every day since I was replaced,” he said. “I never wanted to be a solo artist. Still don’t. I like being on a team, and that’s what a band is like. It’s us against them, strength in numbers, and sharing the success and failure.”
