For me ironically are two bands from my native Chicagoland area.
Chicago and STYX
Technically both bands are still around playing the county fair circuit. I refuse to see these bands in there current lineup.

I was lucky to see STYX on one of there last tours in 1996 (Return To Paradise Tour).
It was one of the last tours with Dennis DeYoung.
Dennis DeYoung WAS STYX!
He was the creative force that made the band successful. It’s sad that the remaining members James Young and Tommy Shaw (not and original member) kicked out Dennis DeYoung over creative differences. In 1984, STYX broke up and DeYoung, Shaw and young all went solo. The only member to have any success as a solo artist was Dennis DeYoung. Tommy Shaw and James Young failed miserably and some of there material is almost embarrassing to listen to. It’s AWFUL!
Long story short, the weakest link of STYX (James Young along with Tommy Shaw) won rights to the name STYX in 2001.
Dennis DeYoung has no rights to the band he founded and made a success.
There was a reunion in 1990-1997. After that was when the band started having legal issues with one another. Kind of lame since it was after there hey-day.
Sadly the original drummer John Panazzo died in 1996 and the original bassist Chuck Panazzo is dying of AIDS.





In the case of Chicago. This band has a rich history and has been around since 1967 and released there first album in 1969. Of the 7 original members, 6 are still alive and healthy! The one member who died (Terry Kath) died in 1978 and the band still managed to have several multi-platinum albums after his passing. This is remarkable considering the amount of drugs these guys used.
Peter Cetera left the band and went solo in 1985 and the bands original drummer (Daniel Seraphine) was kicked out in 1990. That was a stupid idea on the bands part.

Today in 2006, both Chicago and Peter Cetera are on the county fair circuit. I think this band should bury the hatchet and all get back together again. They could put on a great show. I am not a big fan of Peter Cetera’s replacement (Jason Scheff). Imagine if Michael Bolton went to school to sound like Peter Cetera, Jason Scheff is what you get. That is not a good thing.  no

Come on now...you're overlooking Tommy Shaw's work in Damn Yankees.  Wink

I would like to see Styx back together but really only for their old music. I think any attempt at making new music would be horrible.

I've always like Chicago but was very disappointed when I saw them on the Today Show earlier in the year (maybe a month or so back) when they didn't have a horn section. WTF?! Chicago was all about the horns. Bury the hatchet and get back together but as with Styx, don't make new music but rather stick to the old stuff.

Other bands I'd like to see get together again.

Guns 'n' Roses
Jefferson Airplane (not that silly little Starship crap)
The Yardbirds though under which lineup would be tough to figure out.

Pink Floyd - But as Gator said, Waters is just too hard to get along with, especially for the other 3 members who have nothing left to prove to anyone by putting up with it.

Led Zeppelin - John Bonham's son is a pretty damned good drummer in his own right, and can fill Daddy's shoes quite nicely.

The hell with Roger Waters. I saw 'Floyd' in '94 in MI on successive nights and they were unbelievable without Mr. Waters and his ego. Also, I don't know if you caught their performances at the Live 8 benefit but Waters sounded terrible. David Gilmour, on the other hand, sounded as good then as he did 25 years ago.

I've seen Styx roughly 6 times since moving to CA in 2000 and they've sounded as crisp as they did in the 70's (I'm not nearly as old as you ANC so my memory is based on listening to cassettes, not their actual live performances). The last time I saw them, they were at at the House of Blues in Anaheim in 2004, I think it was, and about 30% of their songs was new stuff and it totally sucked. And the crowd let them know it, too.

That's a tough one. He did play with them briefly or for just one show right back in the 80s IIRC. Kind of hard to replace John Paul Jones though with his bass playing. It just woudn't feel right to me for some strange reason.

Yes, I'd like to see that too. I did catch Bruce Foxton playing with the Casbah Club a couple of months ago though.

My impossible dream would be to see the Clash reform. But what with Joe Strummer sadly no longer being with us.... (and I am so glad I got see him play before he died).

Out of the gene pool! How dare you compare Blink 182 to some of the groups listed in this thread. They've only been on "hiatus" for a year or so. Get back to us when they still get airplay in 20 years.

Ooohhh...forgot this one. Very good choice but I think we all know David Byrne's ego will get in the way. The other members have gone on the record as saying such many times. Still a great band though and so far ahead of their time.
