Catching Up...with Styx
Posted:Monday, 11/19/2012 at 03:11am by Greg Easterling
We celebrated the birthday of James "JY" Young last Wednesday. He's the longtime lead guitarist for Styx, one of our hometown heroes, from the Southside of Chicago.

JY's been there since the very beginning and if you're counting, is the last original member still playing in the band on a fulltime basis now. We spotlighted the 1978 Styx album, Pieces Of Eight...JY is featured vocally on several cuts on Side 1 including the first("Great White Hope") and the last("Lords Of The Ring"), also playing lead guitar on those tracks as well.
