James Young discusses tour, forgiveness

With years of successful tours behind the current lineup and a new invigorating album, however, Young said he's reached a state of peace and forgiveness as it relates to DeYoung and the band's overall legacy.

"You know, I've forgiven him," Young said. "I'm sure there are things I did that made him mad and there were things he did that made me mad, but ultimately the body of work that we created is an amazing body of work. I wouldn't change a thing about it now. I might have five years ago, but right now I'm living with it, and I'm owning it and it is what it is. Anyway, it's made me very relaxed and calm about the whole thing."

Young said he's gained a fuller appreciation for the band's entire catalog, something which wasn't always the case earlier. In fact, at the tour opener Wednesday night, Styx pulled a stunning surprise by opening the encore segment with "Mr. Roboto" -- a song the revamped lineup has never played before in concert.

Did the door open slightly for DDY?

I sure hope so. Keep Gowan and bring DDY aboard from time to time.

I dont understand the debate. Styx/Deyoung fans have it made.
Styx Tours and plays new songs, deep tracks, and classics.
Deyoung Tours plays deep tracks/classics.

Journey tours plays the dirty dozen for the last 5 years.
Steve Perry crawls out of his bunker every 5 years and has not toured in 23 :shock: :( years.

DDY tour with a second keyboardist. Styx could too. Get Glenn involved and I would go. But I do not see this happening.

All in a Days Work and Yes I Can would fit perfect in a set.
