Arrival on the international stage
When twin brothers John and Chuck Panozzo (bass) began jamming out with their neighbour Dennis DeYoung when they were just teenagers, little did they know that they would grow to become an iconic rock band. John Panozzo sadly passed away in 1996 and DeYoung chose to leave the band in 1999, however their music will live on forever. The group originally called themselves TW4, before settling on the name Styx in 1972. That same year, they released their debut self-titled album, which had a distinct garage rock and upbeat pop sound. While not quite a breakthrough hit, the record did announce the arrival of the group within the US rock scene and included the single 'Best Thing' which reached the #82 spot on the Billboard charts. Between 1977 and 1981, Styx released four consecutive triple-platinum albums ('RIAA: The Grand Illusion', 'Pieces of Eight', 'Cornerstone' and 'Paradise Theatre'), blasting the band to major prominence and popularity.
