Y&T Frontman Interviewed On Allentown's 95.1 WZZO (Video)

August 9, 2010

Tori Thomas of the 95.1 WZZO radio station in Allentown, Pennsylvania conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Dave Meniketti of California rockers Y&T on Thursday, August 5 at The Sterling Hotel in Allentown. Video footage of the chat can be viewed below (captured by Lisa Koza Productions).

Y&T bassist Phil Kennemeore was diagnosed with cancer last week and is being temporarily replaced on the road by Brad Lang, who previously played with Jeff Pilson (DOKKEN, FOREIGNER, DIO) in WAR & PEACE.

Y&T's current lineup is rounded out by original guitarist/vocalist Dave Meniketti, along with longtime members John Nymann (guitar) and Mike Vanderhule (drums).

Y&T's first studio album in 13 years, "Facemelter", was released in Europe on May 21 via Frontiers Records.

As the title indicates, "Facemelter" is a hard-rockin', song-oriented album that lives up to its name: it captures the band's raw energy and tightness that they've become known for. Featuring heavy grooves, powerful guitars, and strong melodies, the band shows their versatility, delivering a range of high-energy rockers, mid-tempo head-bangers, modern rock grooves, majestic ballads, and signature Y&T rock anthems. To mark the return, the band engaged John Taylor Dismukes — the same artist who designed covers for Y&T's classic albums "Mean Streak", "Black Tiger" and "In Rock We Trust" — to create the amazing art of the new "Facemelter".
