Hey folks, sorry about the removal of the news updates for today ...
Something seriously funky going on with the formatting for Blogspot, that I can't explain and they don't seem to offer much help!
Ah well, life is full of trials right?!

Hope to get something up here for you later.

The posting of the Y&T Newsletter seemed to really not help, something in the formatting of that no doubt, that was no compatible with Blogspot.


There wasn't really anything too new to share from that though really,, with the exception that that band will be playing some all ages shows in California .. Shame they can't make that happen else where, hmmm?!
Here's the link to the Y&T / Meniketti site, to help track down shows that may work for you, if you're wanting take the kids or simply don't want to miss a Y&T show!
