In a recent interview with Trunk Nation on SiriusXM radio station, Tommy Shaw was asked about the possibility of a reunion by Damn Yankees and he did not rule it out.
Damn Yankees with Tommy Shaw (Styx), Jack Blades (Night Ranger), Ted Nugent and Michael Cartellone were formed in 1989 and released two studio albums, the self-titled on the same year and “Don’t Tread” three years later. The supergroup has since made two reunions in 1998 and 2010.
“Well, we never broke up… We are all still best of friends. So, who knows? It’s hard, because with Styx, we work so much, and to do that, it would mean putting the rest of Styx out of work for a while. So it’s a tough one. But every once in a while, we wind up on the same stage”, said Shaw.
Asked if he feels there is some “unfinished business” with Damn Yankees creatively and whether he would like to do a record or a song with the band to “put a button on it,” Shaw said: “Well, we can always do more. I don’t think you can ever put a ‘we’re done’ button on any of the members of the Damn Yankees. Who knows? Never say never. And we haven’t said never.”
