Y&T Added To Sweden Rock Festival


December 6, 2009

Y&T Added To Sweden Rock FestivalSan Francisco’s Y&T caused a sensation within the metallic underground when they released “Earthshaker” in 1981. The album, and its successors “Black Tiger” (1982), “Mean Streak” (1983) and “In Rock We Trust” (1984) are all timeless classics with an equally melodic and aggressive heavy metal-sound and songs from the top drawer and then some. Sadly Y&T never played in Sweden during this golden age, so the expectations were immense when they finally arrived at SRF in 2003. The performance was a resounding success, which repeated itself on the band’s return the following year. And now guitarist/vocalist Dave Meniketti, bassist Phil Kennemore and guitarist John Nymann, accompanied by (relatively) new drummer Mike Vanderhule, will return to the scene of this double triumph – at about the same time as Y&T’s first new album in 13 years (!) sees the light of day.
