Dave, Thank you, Thank You< THANK YOU! You're awesome and really made a dream come true. I realize I am but one person in a sea of friends but, you need to know what kind of impact you and your music has made on, not just me, but many people. It matters.

I hope the cruise is going well and you guys are having a great time. It was an honor and pleasure to meet, and hang out with you guys. Jill said you were worn out and I completely understand.(Heard you drove the last 3 hitches) ((What an effin warrior!!!)) And although I know it was tounge-in-cheek....it was true. I appreciate it. More than most. (I notice the little things) ((Nymanns guitar going out, and you covering seamlessly, without the crowd knowing any different)).
I will drive racks and stacks 100+ dates this year and ALL of them should see the machine that IS Y&T to learn how to be PRO!!
Thanks again Dave. Really. Tell Jill and all the guys hello, and know what you're doing matters.
David , Crazy good show My Wife and Brother were there I couldn't talk the next day from screaming it was the BEST SHOW WE HAVE SEEN. Since we saw you back in the eighties in Calif..at the country club in San Fernando valley.. You guys were so Tight it was the best...It was a shame more people didn't show up but I think the ones that were there enjoyed the Hell out of it...Love you guys keep rockin!!!!!
That is a great first...and second post! I too remember being devastated when "Yesterday And Today Live" was released! It was like hitting a wall going 60 MPH. Y&T was such a huge part of growing up...like many here have said,"Y&T's music was the soundtrack of my life"; and to have that farewell CD in my hands was a rude awakening! At that time Motley had just released "Primal Scream", Whitney Houston's pre-recorded rendition of the national anthem was at the top of the charts, and grunge and boy bands were the products the radio stations were shoving down our collective throats. It was sobering to say the least.
Thank God Dave and the boys got back together a few years later. Not only did they get back together, but they produced some great music since those dark days! Both of the Unearthed albums are great( especially Vol 2 which I have really been digging lately), and I'd put "Musically Incorrect", "Endangered Species", " Facemelter" and "Live at the Mystic" up there with the best of my favorite albums from any band.
But most importantly, I can not believe how many great experiences I have been fortunate enough to experience live with Y&T since that day I held "Yesterday And Today Live" in my hands. I look forward to hearing what comes next, and many more great times to be had live at a Y&T show!
There is nothing on the planet that makes me feel the way I feel when I am at a Y&T show!
