YandT_london_ThmbWith the passing of Phil Kennemore last year, Y&T mainman Dave Meniketti could very easily have drawn a line under the band once and for all. But respecting his dear friend and bassist's wishes that he get 'On With The Show' without him that's just what Dave and the band are doing. Jim Rowland caught up with the San Francisco rockers at a packed out venue in North London for what would turn out to be a very special night indeed.

Guns recently found themselves playing their second Welsh show in just three days, due to what appeared to be some pretty bizarre tour scheduling. Johnny H was certainly not complaining though as three 'original' bands playing a local rock pub is the stuff he has wet dreams about.... We do worry you know.
