Former Styx singer Dennis DeYoung has teamed up with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello for a new song called, “The Last Guitar Hero”, which will feature on DeYoung’s final studio album, 26 East, Vol. 2, which arrives on June 11.
“The Last Guitar Hero” is the second track from DeYoung’s forthcoming album following last month’s release of “Isle of Misanthrope”.
Explaining about his upcoming final album, DeYoung said, “The last album was supposed to be my final album, but there were so many songs written that Serafino of Frontiers suggested dividing it into two albums rather than one.”
In a pair of tweets, Morello recalled how DeYoung recruited him for the track.
“When Dennis DeYoung (the singer of STYX) sheepishly approached me about playing a shredding solo on his song ‘The Last Guitar Hero’ with the attitude ‘Hi Tom, I’m not sure if you’re familiar with my music but.’ I said, “Stop right there!!,” Morello tweeted.
He added, “EVERY single time I’m in my hometown I PACK the jukebox at the local bar with those great Styx songs all night long! Man Of Miracles? Renegade? Suite Madam Blue? Mr. Mother Flippin’ Roboto?! Fellow Illinois rocker, it would be an honor.”
