We are in the year 2017 and still love to hear and spread news and hoax from the past. Styx is an American rock band from Chicago that formed in 1972 and became famous for its albums released in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  

Current Members: Styx, 2009. L-R: Lawrence Gowan, Ricky Phillips, James Young, Todd Sucherman, and Tommy Shaw.

Past members: Dennis DeYoung, John Panozzo, John "J.C." Curulewski, Glen Burtnik

They are best known for melding the style of pop rock and hard rock with the power of a hard-rock guitar balanced with acoustic guitar, synthesizers mixed with acoustic piano, upbeat tracks with power ballads, and incorporating elements of international musical theatre.

The Band separated with DeYoung in 1999 after the release f the album Brave New World, due to differences of personality conflicts. DeYoung was replaced by Lawrence Gowan, a classically trained pianist. After this there has been several talks of their union but nothing have worked out till now.

As of March 18, 2011, Dennis DeYoung's name was removed from the history section of Styx's official website.

DeYoung continued his solo career by re-arranging and performing his Styx hits with a symphony orchestra.

Long rumor of talks of reunion

In a July 7, 2011 interview with Rolling Stone music magazine Tommy Shaw stated that he doesn't think [a reunion with DeYoung] is realistic, and that what was true in 1983 was only more true in 1996", in which his coming together with DeYoung had a very negative effect on each other".

Having all this information there is less feasibility of the reunion and all the news spreading in the internet world is just imagination of minds. As of now there is no immediate information of the reunion of this old folks.
