Styx - The long way home

Masters in mixing rock genres (prog, power, hard) with elements originating from the American theatre world.

The band from Chicago, Illinois accepted its name with some reluctance after a list of alternatives had been presented to the members.

Inspiration for band name Styx - Landscape with Charon Crossing the River Styx - Joachim Patinir - Museo del Prado MadridAccording to former singer and keyboardist Dennis DeYoung Styx was 'the only name that none of us hated'.

For completeness' sake: the Styx is the river that in Greek mythology divides earth and the underworld (Hades).

The course of the river can hardly be called a perfect example of efficiency: reportedly the Styx circles the underworld nine times.

Active: 1970-1984; 1989-1992; 1995-present, USA
