Former Styx singer and keyboardist Dennis DeYoung continues to push for the band’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
DeYoung recently talked about an article on Loudwire.com that lists "91 Metal Acts With the Most Top 40 Songs."
He posted on Facebook, "We’re in the Top 10 with a total of 16 Top 40 hits including eight Top 10s. All the other musicians who have 16 are in the Rock Hall of Fame. A girl can dream can’t she?
He added, "We’re tied with The Who, Journey, Tom Petty, Van Halen and Eric Clapton, none of which have as many Top 40 hits. Hot diggity. I read recently that neither Tommy Shaw nor James "JY" Young care if we’re not inducted. Really? Well I certainly do and why not? And not ashamed to admit it.
DeYoung also said, "Many of you have commented that it doesn’t matter, Dennis, because the music speaks for itself and we have you guys, the true fans. True dat, but why not have both? I’ll vote for you if you vote for Styx."
Styx have been eligible for induction since 1997, 25 years after the release of their self-titled debut album in 1972.
