GLEN BURTNIK - STYX
Burtnik debuted in the Broadway production of Beatlemania as Paul McCartney, alongside Marshall Crenshaw, who played John Lennon. He wrote "Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough" for Patty Smyth and for Don Henley "Spirit Of A Boy, Wisdom Of A Man" and "Delicious Surprise." He was a member of LaBamba and The Hubcaps led by New Jersey shore favorite Richie 'LaBamba' Rosenberg before leaving to start his solo career in 1986. Glen Burtnik replaced Tommy Shaw on the Styx album Edge Of The Century in 1990. He rejoined Styx in 1999 for the Brave New World tour. In 2006, Dennis DeYoung asked him to be a part of his band for selected shows to help promote his CD One Hundred Years From Now, which was released in Canada in 2007 and in the USA in 2009. Burtnik performed with DeYoung some of the material he wrote with Styx during the Edge of The Century album including "Love Is The Ritual," "Edge of the Century" and some "Lost Treasures" - songs written for Styx on Edge of the Century II which never got recorded because Styx didn't have a recording contract at that time. In 2009 he joined The Orchestra (ELO) in Europe, replacing the late Kelly Groucutt on bass.
