Sur The Best of Y&T (1981-1985) et 4 autres albums

Y&T (originally known as Yesterday & Today) is an American hard rock/heavy metal formed in 1974. They hail from the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. The band put out two albums on London Records as Yesterday & Today in the 1970s, before shortening their name to Y&T and releasing several albums on A&M Records beginning in 1981, as well as albums on Geffen Records, Avex Records, and others. The band was originally co-managed by Herbie Herbert (who also managed Journey) and Louis « Lou » Bramy. The band has sold over 4 million albums to date worldwide.


Early years

Dave Meniketti (often mistakenly spelled Menketti) started his musical career in 1973, and in 1974 he formed Yesterday and Today. The band’s name was inspired by The Beatles’ album of the same name. The original members were Meniketti (lead guitar, lead vocals), Joey Alves (rhythm guitar), Phil Kennemore (bass), and Leonard Haze (drums). Mike Hagen aided in creating guitar riffs and lyrics for a few songs in the early to mid eighties.

The band released two 1970s albums on London Records. A new record deal in 1980 with A&M Records prompted the band to shorten their moniker to simply Y&T, and encores with fans chanting « Y&T, Y&T, Y&T » sealed the condensed name.

Commercial success

Y&T’s 1985 hit « Summertime Girls » received tremendous airplay worldwide, played frequently in the Baywatch television series and several feature films, remained at length in heavy rotation on MTV as well as MTV’s top video playlists, and the hit song gets regular airplay today on classic rock radio stations throughout the country alongside other Y&T hits.
