Y&T guitarist John Nymann thinks it is ridiculous other bands charge money for meets and greets
Y&T‘s long-time rhythm guitarist John Nymann (since 2003) was interviewed today by members of the closed Facebook group “Love 80s Hairbands and Southern Rock Bands !! They Rock!!“.
It was pointed out to Nymann that “Y&T are one of the most fan friendly bands around. You don’t even do the assembly line, rush you through, table meet and greets. The four of you just go out and mingle after the show. How do feel about other band charging money for meet and greets, even those just playing clubs?” Nymann replied succinctly: “We think that is ridiculous!”
Y&T are scheduled to release their first acoustic album entitled Acoustic Classix Vol. 1 in mid-January 2018. Nymann was asked what was the decision behind doing an acoustic record to which he replied: “Just to see what it would sound like! We released it because we liked the way it sounds.”
With respect to the documentary that is in the works on Y&T, Nymann advised: “Oh man, it is a lot of info to process! Over forty years of stuff. It is getting there, be patient.”
Nymann was asked about a memory that sticks out about Y&T bassist Phil Kennemore who passed away from lung cancer in 2011. The guitarist advised: “My favorite story, was the time in France that he stripped down naked at a huge cathedral and wanted a pic of him posed in front of it. It was dark out, Thank God! But the French police pulls up, and luckily didn’t arrest him! Ha ha! I guess the French do have sense of humour!”
