Here it is...

This is what you all wanted...

Dennis DeYoung and his loyal following...

At the local skating rink parking lot....

I wish I would have gotten there earlier in order to get a good seat....

His new album will go platinum just like some of ya predicted!

Serious question: Is that his wife singing back-up on the left??

Funny, that doesn't look like a skating rink parking lot...

But you know something, this back and forth posting of "discrediting" videos of each side is really kind of...I dunno. Stupid.

Yeah. Stupid.

I wish I had a dollar for each time someone here has said we should be grateful we have ANY shows to see and that our guys are still healthy and touring and bringing us music. Big crowds, small crowds...the important thing is that the ones who are there are enjoying themselves.

Of course, considering the fact that this was posted by someone with only 4 posts who is virtually unknown amongst us...I guess I'll take that for what it's worth. Which likely means you already know that's Suzanne on backing vocals, and you only want me to tell you it's her so that you can continue being surprised and aghast about the whole thing. ;-)

Now, I am wondering what it was Glen kept fiddling with - was that his wireless pack or what?

Wait for the uncontrollable gushing over "She Cares" to start before you really get worried.

I'd like to help, but there's no way that I'm going back and watching enough of that clip to find out.

I agree with you. It just gets on the nerves when you see so much bashing against Styx. People on both sides can find numerous instances on both ends to make fun of. At least everyone is touring and putting out new cd's.

And 99.999% of the people out there could gives two sh!ts who is in Styx.

And yes something is wrong with his wireless...it isn't attached to his guitar strap too well...it actually falls off and he has to pick it up (about the 3 minute mark)

Isn't this the second time we've seen someone post this youtube clip. Always judge a music's quality by its youtube clip.

It ain't just this night. Unfortunately.

But at least he has a new drummer now.

Is this all you have time to do?
If it is a skating rink parking lot, well who cares. I don't care were Styx or Dennis plays, I like them both. It wouldn't bother me if I was the only one in the audience (they might though). I would like to see both parties cds do good, doubt it will, but who knows, won't know till it is released. Yes it is his wife, you jealous?

That is his wife. When I saw the show people Dennis' camp seemed to say her mic is never on. I don't know.

Some love to bash DDY, but fact is without him they are just some rock band. DDY added a unique sound. Seeing Styx without him I feel like they are just some rock band. It's a shame the other guys laugh off DDY's existence. He was Styx.

There was a uniqueness about the band which all of them added to. Not like Kansas, not like Journey, REO, Foreigner, Boston, YES, etc... whatever. Most people just don’t realize. They’re just lumped in AOR and basically forgotten. No respect. People just don’t know. Styx from 1975-1981, incredible. Smart, melodic, inventive, impressive 3 headed monster with 2 pretty damn good guitarists. That Styx. Fuck you to the person that get off trashing members and past members. You are small.
