Liner Notes

As a part of appearing on the World of Rock radio show hosted by Scott Muni, artists had to play DJ, introducing songs (either their own or their influences') to be aired. While the focus here is on DeYoung's 1989 solo effort, Boomchild, he also provides some great stories behind Styx classics such as "Beneath the Moon," "Come Sail Away," and "Lady." Also included here is a recounting of the original meeting between DeYoung and the Panozzo brothers.
