In 1999, Dennis De Young was forced to leave Styx due to a chronic disorder that made him sensitive to light and sound at concerts and was replaced by Lawrence Gowan to fulfill touring obligation.

In 2014, Dennis DeYoung and his band performed “Live At Los Angeles” with a much better sounding music than the current incarnation of Styx.
