Naja Davis of ModestoNews.org conducted an interview with Y&T bassist Brad Lang when the band played in Modesto, California on January 31. You can now watch the chat below.
Lang originally joined Y&T in 2010 after founding bassist Phil Kennemore was diagnosed with lung cancer. Phil lost his fight with cancer in 2011 and Lang was asked to become an official member of Y&T.
Before joining Y&T, Brad was the bassist for the band JET RED and has a web site, BradLangBass.com where fans can find out more about his work and music career.
Y&T's live album, "Live At The Mystic", was released in November 2012 via Frontiers Records.
With Lang on bass and vocals, Y&T proves its continued strength with "Live At The Mystic", a double live CD recorded at the legendary Mystic Theatre in Petaluma, California, one of the most popular venues that Y&T play every year. The two-CD set includes 22 songs recorded over two nights in November 2011, including many tracks never before released on any other live Y&T CD. The amazing heat to the tracks showcases the power of the band as it currently sounds, playing songs from the band's latest studio album, "Facemelter", as well as all the hits and fan favorites.
"Songs like 'Dirty Girl', with its extended solo section of John Nymann and myself tearing into a nearly three-minute back-and-forth solo was especially a great performance," said guitarist/vocalist Dave Meniketti. "Also, many of the classic tunes like 'Black Tiger', 'Don't Wanna Lose' and 'Mean Streak' were very well played and show some of the best live performances of these songs we've ever recorded. But I also feel strongly about our more mastered performances from our latest 'Facemelter' CD. The energy and much more refined versions of these songs, now that we've really had some time to hone in the vibe of these tunes, make it that much more special of a live recording."
