Dennis DeYoung has just released his second video from his latest album, 26 East, Vol. 1. The clip for “With All Due Respect” features DeYoung and his touring band performing the song in self-quarantine, and shows a decidedly harder side of the former-Styx leader than most fans have been used to, spotlighting an almost heavy metal-vibe.
Although his former bandmates, guitarists Tommy Shaw and J.Y. Young forced him out of the band over 20 years ago — Dennis DeYoung still yearns for a final shot at fronting Styx. We asked him what it would take to see that happen: “Those two guys. I would always have been in Styx, except for their decision — that's a fact. I don't have a grudge. I have to ax to grind. No hatchet to bury. I should've been in the band, I wanna be in the band — well, the last coupla years I've been sayin' — 'Hey! I don't wanna be in the band anymore.' But we should do one last tour — get Moe, Larry, & Curly on the stage, and show people what it was.”
