Just a very, very cool vintage shot from the archive
Still owed you all this one, some nice surprises. Wonder what will be on the final DVD?
The recording for the live dvd during two shows in Tokyo went well if we see the posts on Facebook. Really curious how this will turn out…..
The band has arrived in Tokyo for two shows of which there will be a live DVD. Curious if this will be a Japan only release or an international release? hope we can also welcome the first Blu Ray release from the band?

Another sad message;
It’s with great sadness that I write this today. Joey Alves, passed away at 7:10 this morning at the age of 63. He suffered from ulcerative colitis and other complications that led to his passing. Joey was one of the finest rock rhythm guitarists, and I’ll always remember playing next to him chunking out those monster chords with his classic red double cutaway ‘59 Les Paul Jr. As Ronnie Montrose once said about Joey, “There are rhythm players, then there’s Joey. A class of his own…..”.
He was a fun guy who always played with attitude and conviction, and was responsible for writing some memorable riffs for Y&T over the years. His friendship and presence will be missed. This is a great loss for all the Y&T family and faithful. He now joins Phil and Leonard in rock and roll heaven.
***Y&T at Club Citta’ in Tokyo, Japan Sat & Sun March 18 & 19***
Don’t miss these two special shows as Y&T will be filming a live DVD both nights! Plus as an added bonus, they will perform the Earthshaker album in it’s entirety at the Sat show. See you there!
