Y&T Frontman Interviewed On 'Rich Davenport's Rock Show' (Audio)
- Dec. 7, 2012
Dave Meniketti of Y&T and KING'S X frontman Doug Pinnick were interviewed on the latest edition of "Rich Davenport's Rock Show". The program can be streamed using the Mixcloud player below.
Y&T's new live album, "Live At The Mystic", was released on November 23 via Frontiers Records.
Following original bassist Phil Kennemore's untimely passing from lung cancer in early 2011, the band carries on the legacy that is Y&T. With Brad Lang on bass and vocals, Y&T prove their continued strength with "Live At The Mystic", a new double live CD recorded at the legendary Mystic Theatre in Petaluma, California, one of the most popular venues that Y&T play every year.
Y&T singer and lead guitarist Dave Meniketti recalls: "Like all Mystic Theater shows, this particular weekend was special. Having just returned from a near-two-month tour of Europe and the U.K., we were very tight and energized to be playing for our home crowd again."
The two-CD set includes 22 songs recorded over two nights in November 2011, including many tracks never before released on any other live Y&T CD. The amazing heat to the tracks showcases the power of the band as it currently sounds, playing songs from "Facemelter" as well as all the hits and fan favorites. "Songs like 'Dirty Girl', with its extended solo section of John Nymann and myself tearing into a nearly three-minute back-and-forth solo was especially a great performance," says Meniketti. "Also, many of the classic tunes like 'Black Tiger', 'Don't Wanna Lose' and 'Mean Streak' were very well played and show some of the best live performances of these songs we've ever recorded. But I also feel strongly about our more mastered performances from our latest 'Facemelter' CD. The energy and much more refined versions of these songs, now that we've really had some time to hone in the vibe of these tunes, make it that much more special of a live recording."
