That what a lot of people would like to know. Dennis has always seemed to not say much until things are "in the can". Which for me is somewhat frustrating. A few months ago I believe he reported that recording was in process.

I would guess it will be a digital only release if it happens at all.

Not so sure about that. The label that gave him the deal is very active in releasing CDs of older bands and artists. It's what they are known for.

I watched the DDY and the music of Styx concert on YouTube the other day. I was quite impressed with how great his band is. I felt like I was watching a Styx concert. Suite Madam Blue...wow! How in the hell does he have a voice like that and such breathing ability, at that age?

By taking care of his voice and not over working it. He was smart to understand it was his meal ticket. I heard him say that he doesn't feel his became an accomplished singer until he did his stint in Jesus Christ Superstar.

Saw Styx the other night. Tommy's voice is so much better than it's ever been. Saw Dennis a few months ago - also great. I hear him going into head voice in different parts than he used to, but it's big and full. He sounds great. These guys know what they're doing vocally. Jy's voice has been beaten up, which is sad. People don't give JY enough credit. His head voice is such a big part of the Styx Harmony Block. If you listen to his solo album or the James Young Group album, listen to the backup vocals. They sound like Styx. As a lead singer, he's not my favorite. As a harmony singer, man, you gotta have him in there. Gowan's voice is also better than it's ever been. He was great as well.
NO. He's NOT Steve F'ing Perry. But he's Arnel F'ing Pineda and I'm okay with that.

JY certainly is part of that Styx harmony sound signature. That signature was DDY\TS\JY and for me at least, you can't duplicate it using other people. This is one of the main factors for my loss of interest in the band now known as Styx. As far as JY on lead vocals, I liked his performances on the WN releases the best. It's truly sad that special magic has been lost forever.

OK then.
If you don't like Styx doing Styx because it isn't the DDY/Tommy/JY combo, does that mean you don't like Dennis doing Styx because it isn't the DDY/Tommy/JY ?? :?: 8)

You would have a point if I said that was the only reason I am no longer interested in the band. But that is not the case. There is more. Off the top of my head:

DDY is no longer in the band.
I am not a fan of Gowan on songs where DDY was the lead singer.
I didn't like how they handled DDY's departure and things they said and did after the fact.
They are not playing songs I would like to hear when seeing them Live.

What you have is a version of the band that is different then when DDY was part of it and it just doesn't interest me anymore. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and saw them live post DDY's ousting. They didn't do anything that motivated me to want to see them again. As far as DDY's band and live shows, it is more to my liking. He plays the stuff I want to hear. His show is structured like Styx shows used to be. I get to hear DDY sing his songs, not a replacement. No the harmonies are not the same but the other things I like about his group and live shows outweighs that. It's all a personal choice. I don't expect everyone else to think or feel the same way. I'm not looking to convert people. If you are happen to like Styx as they are now, then more power to ya.

Funny that.
I have always loved that Tommy/JY and Chuck ended up standing up to Dennis for being Mr. Bossypants.I wonder if Dennis regret a few things, and wish he had done things differently now.? :lol:
I guess if you are a Dennis fan, you get Babe and Suzanne as backup singer. 8)

Don't forget.....

"Mr. Bossy Pants" turned Crystal Ball into a prog. rock song with a chorus and encouraged Tommy Shaw the step in the spotlight!

Mr. BP turned Shaw’s acoustic Crosby Stills and Nash style demo into a rock song called Renegade instead of all 3 part harmonies!

Mr. BP against JY and mgmt wishes had TS record Boat on the River giving Styx and TS arguably their most important song outside N America!

Mr. BP refused to replace TS over the objections of JY, JP and CP when he left Styx to go solo!!!!!

Mr. BP asked TS to re record Lady in 1995 which led to the 1996 and 97 reunion tours!!

Mr. BP found a way to keep the balance between the song writers from Crystal Ball to Kilroy Was Here. Glen Burtnik lasted one album in Styx when it was clear he would be given less then what he got when Mr. BP was producing!

Mr. BP mixes including Renegade and BCM are the ones we have been listening to for the last 40 years!

How dare Mr. BP ruin my favorite band!!!!!!!

I agree. I thought JY’s best vocals were with the WN albums as well. He has his moments obviously from Equinox to PoE, but it ends for me there.

Ahh,Suite.Perfect timing.
Here we are talking about ,when Dennis' new album is coming out.?
...and if Dennis has regretted some of the things, that got him fired.?
You talk to Dennis,so has he said anything about either ?
If not?.Maybe you could ask him about those things.?
I didn't forget.
Did you forget, for Crystal Ball was in the making,Dennis didn't really feel he had much to offer, hence his encouragement to Tommy.
500k on Kilroy movie,LOL :lol:

There has been pictures recently posted from August facebook page with him in Dennis' studio, and of Jim Leahey in Jim Peterik's studio with Dennis. It would appear they are cutting more than demos at this point. I've listened to Jim Peterik's podcast and he has mentioned they have written around 20 songs. If anything Peterik will keep this project on track I believe.
