No, Dennis can't do that. Remember the lawsuit...the settlement gave Tommy, JY, and Chuck the ability to tour as Styx. Dennis can only refer to himself as a former member. So, you get "Dennis DeYoung: Formerly of Styx" or "Dennis DeYoung and the Music of Styx"....and, honestly, if Styx wanted to be assholes, they could probably sue over the second one.

Again, I'll point back to Little River Band. When the original voices of LRB reunited as "Birtles, Goble and Shorrock", they released a live CD/DVD titled "Full Circle" On the CD cover there is a marquee showing "Original Voices of Little River Band: Birtles, Shorrock, & Goble" The owner of the band name (Stephen Housden) sued BSG because the FONT SIZE of "Little River Band" was the same as the band name. BSG was pissed so they released the CD/DVD with "?" blocking out the "Little River Band" portion. It's an awesome DVD, BTW.

THAT is how picky these things get when they end up in court.

Based on JY's statements, DDY has no claim to the Styx name and can't use it in any form. Yes most likely has an agreement for both the Anderson and the Howe groups to use the name. DDY could still put out new music, though.


They probably both have rights to the name and have agreed to not take each other to court over it.

Full Circle is indeed a great DVD. I wish it was available in higher video quality.
