Writer Dennis Deyoung (who?) finally explains what the hell Styx’s “Mr. Roboto” was about.:
“It’s the future in America! Rock and Roll has been banned, a rock star named Kilroy decides to challenge that law and form a concert, during that concert Kilroy is put in prison. The prison is guarded by Japanese robots called “robotos”. Kilroy escapes from prison by overtaking one of the roboto guards. That’s the story!”
Shit! It all makes sense now! I gotta start writing shit like that!
