Senaste nyhetsmailet från Y&T!

Since Phil's post on the forum last month announcing that he has cancer, he's posted an updated message about his health and well-being:

He is reading (and re-reading) every single response.
Please brighten Phil's day and post a message to him there.

In July when doctors ordered Phil off the Facemelter tour and into the hospital, he asked the band to continue the tour for him. And so, to honor Phil's wish, the band tapped bassist Brad Lang (Jet Red, War & Peace, Foreigner) to help out. The next morning, Brad flew out to jump onto the tour; he had learned 21 songs in 24 hours--along with Phil's vocal harmonies! Phil and the band are so grateful to Brad for his enthusiasm, support, and graciousness to step in while Phil fights the battle. For Brad, subbing for Phil Kennemore and playing with Y&T is a dream come true.
We'd like to extend our thanks to you--the incredible Y&T fans--for so warmly welcoming Brad on this tour. Reports from every city continue to rave about Y&T's stellar show. Thanks to Brad, the band can carry on--for Phil and for the fans. As Phil so brilliantly penned on the Facemelter CD, On With The Show...

The band recently started "The Phil Kennemore Fund" for people to make donations to help Phil with his enormous medical bills. Donations of any amount, regardless how small, are greatly appreciated.

This is classic Y&T.

Y&T's Facemelter shirt has been so hot this summer that it keeps selling out! We apologize to those of you who recently tried to order from our web site store only to find we're out of your size. We have another batch of shirts arriving shortly, which will likely be the last. So be sure to order yours!
