Joey Alves was the rhythm guitarist for Y&T from 1974 through 1989 – the period in which the band saw its most success.  Formed in 1974 as Yesterday and Today, the band eventually shortened its name to Y&T and went on to sell millions of albums over the next two decades.  1984’s In Rock We Trust became their biggest selling album, while 1985’s “Summertime Girls,” their signature song.  They are one of the few hard rock bands that survived disco, new wave, and grunge.  Joey Alves was 63 when he passed away on March 12, 2017.  He was reportedly suffering from ulcerative colitis which lead to his death.

Phil Kennemore is perhaps best remembered as the longtime and founding bassist for American heavy metal band, Y&T.  Formed in 1974 as Yesterday and Today, the band eventually shortened its name to Y&T and went on to sell millions of albums over the next two decades.  1984’s In Rock We Trust became their biggest selling album, while 1985’s “Summertime Girls,” became their signature song.  The group broke up in 1991 but then reformed briefly in 1995, and then permanently in 2001.  Kennemore has been part of every incarnation.  They are one of the few hard rock bands that survived disco, new wave, and grunge.  Phil Kennemore, age 56, died of lung cancer on January 7, 2011.
