Happy Birthday today (Feb. 18) to former Styx singer Dennis DeYoung. He's 71. Also celebrating is former BTO drummer Robbie Bachman (65).

Former Styx singer Dennis DeYoung celebrates a birthday (Actually, one of my favorite singers ever). I love my classic rock and I love Styx. “The Greatest Rock n Roll Band from Chicago” (in my opinion) formed in 1970 and have had a successful career that includes five consecutive mult-platinum albums and sixteen U.S. top 40 singles. Songs like “Lady”, “Come Sail Away”, “The Grand Illusion”, “Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)”, “Renegade”, and “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)” are all staples at classic rock radio. Dennis DeYoung performs these days with his solo band under the name Dennis DeYoung Performing the Music of Styx. He's out on tour this year celebrating the 40th anniversary of the classic Styx album, The Grand Illusion. Check out his official website here for dates. Cheers to Dennis DeYoung on his 71st birthday.
