Dennis De Young was one of the founding members of the very successful Styx (one of the music forum's most despised bands), and as one of their primary songwriters and singers, as well as one of their musicians, Dennis was largely responsible for their commercial success. Dennis differed from the rest of the group in the direction that he wanted them to pursue musically and had a theatrical vision that wasn't shared by the other group members, which supposedly led to multiple instances of Dennis leaving the group involuntarily or the group breaking up.
Among any fans of Styx music reading this (if there are any who will admit to it), do you think that Dennis was good for the group? Was he your favorite member of Styx? Would they have ever taken off without his/their first hit "Lady", which he/they followed with "Lorelei" and "Suite Madame Blue"?
Realizing that most participating posters in this forum can't stand Styx, was it largely or completely because of Dennis? Are there any non-Dennis Styx songs that you actually like?
