John To Miss Upcoming UK Festival Dates

Y&T guitarist John Nymann will miss the band’s appearances at the Ramblin’ Man Fair (July 28) and Rock & Blues Custom Show (July 29) festivals in the United Kingdom after becoming “very ill.” Frontman Dave Meniketti states: “Though we’ll miss him at this weekend’s festivals, we all wish John the best on his full recovery and know he will be fine. He’s so disappointed, and this is the first time he’ll miss a show in his long career due to illness. John looks forward to returning to the U.K. with Y&T on the fall tour.

“While this is a shocker to us all, Y&T will power through and play Ramblin’ Man Fair and Rock & Blues Custom Show as a trio, with a local U.K. friend joining in on a few songs to help round out the sound.

“We know that our awesome U.K. fans will be supportive, and we want you all to know that we’re completely ready to kick some ass on these two festivals!”

Y&T’s current lineup is rounded out by drummer Mike Vanderhule and bassist Aaron Leigh.

John, speedy recovery and hope you can rock out again soon!


This is what John posted on Facebook about his situation;

So sorry I am having to miss the next two Y&T shows in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 
I fell really ill with a virus that brought on vertigo! I can’t stand up without falling down. No way I could get on a plane for London. Thank you all for well wishes! I am in bed, doing what my doctor says! Got to get back on my feet for next week show at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk!

Documentary Update

As published on Kickstarter (you can also see a new snippet from the documentary, see link below);

We remain hard at work at editing the film. As we progress, we are still hearing from new participants who want to contribute to the documentary. Recently we’ve been lucky enough to add producers Max Norman (Black Tiger) and David Sieff (Earthshaker). We’ve also been hearing from fans who are finding rare photos in their personal archives. As you know, in the last year we have lost Leonard, Joey, and our long time soundman and friend, Tom Size. As you can imagine, there is a lot we’ll need to add to the story. We hope you enjoy the latest clip we’re releasing, and we hope you know that we want to see the final cut just as much as you do!! Thanks for your continued patience, and if you think you might have a rare photo or video not yet on social media, and would like to contribute to the documentary, please contact us at

so……ik you still hold on to material that could be an added bonus for the documentary, don’t hesitate! Let’s make this docu a milestone in the career of the band !!
