The Metal Box is a weekly web series posted each Friday where we discuss all things hard rock and heavy metal: news, videos, interviews, live concerts and more.

This week we have an interview with Y&T mainman Dave Meniketti. We talk about the history of Y&T, favorite tour back in the 80's, new acoustic album, documentary, upcoming tour dates, and more. Check out the full interview above.

California rockers Y&T led by Dave Meniketti formed out of Oakland in 1974 and had their most success throughout the 1980's with a string of singles. The band will be bringing 80’s hits like “Mean Streak”, “Don’t Stop Runnin'”, and “Summertime Girls” to The Chance in Poughkeepsie once again and it is sure to be a rockin good time!
