Before Mötley Crüe, before RATT, even before there was a Metallica, Y&T was slogging away in sweaty rock clubs around America. When the band formed in the early '70s, little did they know they would set the standard for hard rock bands that trailed. Many of the biggest acts of the '80s became popular opening for headliners Y&T—and cut their teeth on the band, as evidenced by the Y&T mentions in tell-all books by acts such as Metallica and Mötley Crüe. Born in Oakland, California, Y&T is one of the San Francisco Bay Area's own innovators of the hard rock sound. Whether performing to a festival crowd of 50,000 or an intimate nightclub, Y&T's high-energy set and passionate performances still captivate legions of fans around the globe, proving Y&T's music timeless. Y&T has sold over four million albums since their 1974 inception. Radio and MTV hits: Summertime Girls (MTV heavy rotation), Forever, Rescue Me, Mean Streak, Don't Stop Runnin', have been featured in movies & TV shows. After five top 100 albums, songs that tipped into the 40s, two Bammie Awards, and many global television appearances, Y&T's hits are still played on classic rock TV and radio worldwide. Y&T continues to tour globally, featuring dynamic original frontman Dave Meniketti (lead guitar/lead vocals), John Nymann (guitar/vocals), Aaron Leigh (bass/vocals), and Mike Vanderhule (drums/vocals).
