Y&T to play at Sweden Rock 2014

Y&Ts first concert in Sweden, at SRF 2003, remains one of the most lauded in the festival’s history. So what could be more appropriate than Y&T coming to SRF 2014 as part of their 40th anniversary celebrations? It was in 1974 that the band was formed by, among others, singer/guitarist Dave Meniketti. Their original monicker Yesterday & Today was abbreviated before the release of their third album “Earthshaker” (1981). This was in turn a milestone in hard rock, combining power and melody in equal measures. Efforts like “Black tiger” (1982), “Mean streak” (1983) and “In rock we trust” (1984) confirmed the band’s stature. In the 90s Y&T folded twice, and returned permanently in 2001. Sadly, bassist Phil Kennemore succumbed to cancer in 2011, but Dave Meniketti and cohorts found the strength to move on even after this devastating blow.
