Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James "J.Y." Young (born November 14, 1949) is a guitarist, singer and songwriter, and member of the rock band, Styx. Young began playing keyboard and piano at the age of five. He attended Calumet High in Chicago and learned to play clarinet and guitar during those years. J.Y. joined TW4 while a student at Illinois Institute of Technology, from which he graduated with a bachelor's degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering in 1970. That band later became the first incarnation of Styx. After the band's initial breakup in 1983, Young released the solo albums City Slicker, Out On A Day Pass, and Raised By Wolves. He is the only original member left in the current lineup, and has appeared on all Styx albums. He and longtime member Tommy Shaw from the band's hitmaking heyday lead the band, and original bassist Chuck Panozzo still appears on recent albums and at certain concerts as a guest musician.show more
