    He showed up a few times promoting his concert special that was shown on the channel. When the hosts would ask him questions during the pledge breaks he was obnoxious, thought everything he said was hilarious, would talk over the hosts, say rude things and it was really apparent this guy thought he was fantastic, he made me cringe. I could see where he would get annoying really fast, especially on a tour bus where you had to spend hours with him without a break.

    Thanks for confirming that. I wonder if Witchcurlgirl knows anything about him, since she has family members in the industry. From what I've read, he has been kind of obnoxious and rude even when Styx was at their zenith in the late 70's, early 80's. He's also uber Catholic and been married for over 40 years. I'm almost getting a musical Mel Gibson vibe. Just kidding.

    I've also heard Dennis was really getting weird ie Mr. Roboto with the music and the rockers of the group didn't want any part of that either.

    Nah, I've got bupkes on Styx.

    Mr. Roboto is da bomb! I met Dennis DeYoung briefly after a concert. Arrogant bastard. I got the impression that he thought he was the next Andrew Lloyd Webber.

    Hate to see this- love Perry. Second only to Marty Balin of Jeff Airplane IMHO.

    My bro worked at a smaller venue in Va. part time back in the 80's and specifically named DeYoung as an asshole. Said only Sammy Hagar was worse lol.

    I recently saw Journey (with Loverboy and Night Ranger I'll have you know!) and I found it weird with the new guy. Yes, he is talented, but it just seemed like really good karaoke to me. And I also have no problem admitting to loving Air Supply! In fact Every Woman in the World is what my best friend and I have for our ringtone for each other. There is nothing better than a drunken sing-song to Air Supply! hahahaha
