Tonight’s mystery artists had three original members who were all teachers before starting that band that would make them famous. Think you know who they are or the band they formed??

This little known fact was found on AXS about the founding members of STYX. STYX actually morfed from a band started much earlier by John and Chuck Panozzo and vocalist and keyboardist Dennis DeYoung. During the early years Dennis DeYoung taught music, bassist Chuck Panozzo taught art. Ten years later the guys would add and guitarist John Curulewski who taught band. That year along with John, James JY Young would join the band and STYX was born. Let it be noted that JY was no educational slouch, he holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University.

And here is tonight's featured song.
