Kilroy Was Here
In the late 80s, after JY, Tommy, and Dennis had each released solo
projects to varying levels of success, there were several attempts
to reunite Styx, but becuase of such things as errors in timing and
availability problems, the attempts were made in vain. However, in
1990, four out of the five members of the most popular line-up of
Styx reunited. Chuck, John, JY, and Dennis were joined by A&M
singer/songwriter/guitarist Glen Burtnik who joined the group in the
place of Tommy Shaw because he (Tommy) was by that time committed and
honor-bound to his new endeavor--Damn Yankees.
With the entry of Glen Burtnik into the group and seven years since
their last studio album, Styx' musical style was noticeably different.
Nonetheless, with songs like JY's "Homewrecker" and Dennis' "Show Me
The Way," Styx' sound was still evident. In fact, the latter of the
above mentioned songs climbed to #3 on the Billboard charts, partially
because of its close affiliation with the Gulf War Crisis, and made Styx
one of the few bands to have had Top 10 hits in three different decades!
Furthermore, the tour in support of the "Edge of the Century" album
brought Styx' music to standing room crowds of both old and new Styx
fans. The tour was one of the most successful tours of 1991, and Styx
had once again proven that they were a force to be reckoned with even
after a seven year gap in studio albums and the absence of one of their
most popular members--Tommy Shaw.
