Former-Styx leader Dennis DeYoung has teamed up with Rage Against The Machine‘s Tom Morello for his new single, “The Last Guitar Hero.” The song is featured on DeYoung’s final album, 26 East, Vol. 2.

DeYoung posted on his social media accounts: “Be prepared to shake your hips and head bang. Check that, most of you are too old for that so just blink your eyes in time. When Tom does his solo you’ll know why I call him THE GREAT HOUDINI. (share this puppy with all your friends. . . and enemies).”


  • Styx holds the distinction having four consecutive albums certified multi-platinum by the RIAA, 16 Top 40 singles — including eight Top 10 hits — including the 1979 chart-topper, “Babe.”
  • They have been eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — and passed over — since 1997.


  • Dennis DeYoung will always be best remembered for writing and singing such ’70s and ’80s Styx classics “Come Sail Away,” “Lady,” “The Grand Illusion,” “Don’t Let It End,” “Mr. Roboto,” “Babe,” “Rockin’ The Paradise,” “Best Of Times” — along with his solo hit and early-MTV favorite, “Desert Moon.”
