The video for the Styx classic "Come Sail Away" has just surpassed 25 million views on YouTube, and its writer and singer Dennis DeYoung says he is surprised.
Dennis wrote on Facebook, "This video left out a third of the song with an atrocious radio edit that the record company insisted on. They did the edit. That wonderful synth section that takes the song to another level? See ya suckers...”
You can see the rest of Dennis’ post on his Facebook page. "Come Sail Away" is featured on the band’s 7th album, The Grand Illusion, from 1977.
James “JY” Young of Styx once commented on his thoughts on whether the band would ever make it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
He said, "If I never get in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame I feel as if I'd led a full life. I'm glad the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was formed because it really does celebrate the Bo Diddleys and the Buddy Guys and some of the overlooked blues guys that really were the roots of certainly what The Rolling Stones did and what a lot of other bands sort of used and then jumped off from in their own kind of way. And so if we never get in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame I don't really care. If we get there, I'll show up and I'll be happy to stand next to Dennis DeYoung and perform with him at that point and time."
