||MJ - "Are
you going to be doing any songs besides what you've got on your 2 solo albums and some
Styx stuff? During your warm-up I heard some unfamiliar tunes..."
JY - "There's a brand new song...some material we've been working on with this
group..with the concept of maybe I'll get a solo album deal, with the James Young
Group...which is my intention. I mean, Styx...it's a matter of Dennis has got his own
separate things that he does. And Styx is going in the direction, really, that the record
companies...all they want to hear is Dennis DeYoung ballads. And for me that's...I've
enjoyed working with Dennis for the last 20 years, it's been great...but it's time for my
personality to shine through a little bit more. And the record company doesn't want to
hear that from this band...they don't want to promote it. They want something they can put
on VH-1 that's got Dennis' voice on it. So this give me, sort of, a line-up of people that
can really do a great job with MY ideas. The new song we're gonna do tonight is actually
something that I didn't even write & another guys sings....Mike (Mike Baran). So we've
got one new song that we're doing tonight."
