The 50 million record selling Dennis DeYoung called the Big Show Star Phone this morning to chat with Scott Shannon and the gang and update everyone on what he’s been up to His brand new 2 CD/DVD set. “Dennis DeYoung and the Music of Styx Live in Los Angeles” just hit shelves this week!
Having a great rapport with Scott, Dennis kicked the morning off right by surprising the gang by singing a line of “Lady” accompanied with a piano!
Though it was short, it was definitely sweet!
Dennis spoke this morning about performing all of Styx’s greatest hits for the show. And for fans, that’s a definite good thing because it has never been done before!
“I wanted to do all the Styx hits, every single one of them, on a live record with this new live band I have,” he told Scott.
And how did his new band come about? Well, you can thank YouTube for that.
Dennis discovered a young artist named August Zadra four years ago upon the suggestion of his son to go check him out. After watching a few videos and finding out he was part of a Styx cover band, he recruited August into his band.
“I handpicked the band to replicate the sound, the integrity, and the spirit of the band on stage,” he says.
And what originally was a regular show for Dennis DeYoung and his newfound band, became a double CD/DVD set exclusive for fans to own worldwide!
“Why did they wait ‘til I was 67 to invent blu-ray?!” Dennis asked creating a burst of laughter.
The 2 CD/DVD set “Dennis DeYoung and the Music of Styx Live in Los Angeles” is available to buy on Amazon.com!
