Biography

Charles Salvatore Panozzo (born September 20, 1948) is an American musician best known as the bass player for the rock band Styx. A longtime member of Styx, he founded the group with his fraternal twin brother, drummer John Panozzo, who died in July 1996, and singer/keyboardist Dennis DeYoung. He toured part-time from 1999 to 2003 due to an ongoing illness and has returned to touring with Styx on a regular basis since then, sharing bass duties with Ricky Phillips.
Chuck Panozzo is openly gay and has been out since 2001. That year, he also announced that he is living with HIV, and has been involved in campaigning for AIDS awareness and gay rights. In 2006, he spoke with Frontiers for the first time about his decision to come out. The following year he released his autobiography The Grand Illusion: Love, Lies, and My Life With Styx.
