styx & symphony

Turned on PBS for a  few minutes to check out this music special – “Symphonic Rock Music of Styx Featuring Dennis DeYoung“.  Dennis DeYoung, as we all know, was the lead singer and keyboardist of Styx.  So in the special, a 40-piece symphony with DeYoung’s band started playing an intro, and then came the grand entrance of….Robert Blake?  That was my first thought when DeYoung stepped on the stage, with the black suit buttoned all the way up and short gray hair.  The music was OK, but it was hard to shake the idea of Robert Blake and Barry Manilow’s aged love child strolling around up there.
