Former Styx singer and keyboardist Dennis DeYoung says the he hopes that he can reunite with the band so that they can stage one final tour together.
DeYoung recently scored a viral hit with a quarantine rendition of the band's classic song "'The Best Of Times' and he was asked about the possibility of a reunion during an interview with Q1057's Steve King.
Dennis said, "The fans want a reunion. Even Rolling Stone had an article there should be a reunion. All the fans, not all the fans, there's a small minority who like the new band that Tommy [Shaw] and J.Y. put together. Fine.
"I want one last tour for the Styx fans who want this, they do. I don't wanna be back in the band. One last tour to say 'thank you' to the people who gave us such a great life. That's it.
"I just did a YouTube thing at my out-of-tune piano singing into an iPad of 'The Best Of Times' a month ago. It's got over a million views. Seven thousand comments. And the people are all saying the same thing: 'We love you.' 'We want this reunion.' 'We love you, Dennis.' 'We want you back in the band.' I'm humbled by all these comments.
"In fact, I read the sentences of the comments, and I can't figure out what my name is doing in that sentence, it's so complimentary." Check out the full interview below:
