Styx guitarist/singer Tommy Shaw all but shut the door on a reunion with original singer/keyboardist Dennis DeYoung in a recent interview, but DeYoung said he’s open to the idea.

“Look, nobody is a bigger fan of Tommy Shaw than me,” DeYoung said to Rolling Stone. “The day I met him in 1975 I knew he was going to be a great guitar player, performer and songwriter. I was his biggest fan, and I’m Styx’s number one fan. Now am I going to sit here and tell you that it was a bed of roses?”

DeYoung went on to suggest that any group of people who work closely together will disagree on many things. He was asked if he would rejoin the band, if he was invited.

“How much money is involved?” he joked. “I kid, I kid. Of course. But what I’ve said since day one is the same thing I say today. It hasn’t changed…

“Yeah. I gave that band my life.”
