VIXEN, Y&T To Guest on KNAC.COM's 'WildSide' Today

Members of VIXEN and Dave Meniketti of Y&T will be the featured guests on KNAC.COM's '80s glam metal specialty program "WildSide" today (Saturday, April 28) with hostess Diana DeVille beginning at 4:30 p.m. PST. You can listen to the interview at using a Real Media or Windows Media player.

Demolition Records released VIXEN's new studio album, "Live & Learn", in the U.S. on January 30.

"Live & Learn" is VIXEN's first studio recording to feature founding VIXEN member and guitarist Jan Kuehnemund since 1990's "Rev It Up".

Kuehnemund reformed VIXEN in 2001 for the Voices of Metal tour with a lineup that had to be revamped 10 dates into the tour. Undeterred, with less than a month of rehearsals, the three new members — vocalist Jenna Sanz-Agero, drummer Kat Kraft, and bassist Lynn Louise Lowrey — successfully finished the tour and the lineup of VIXEN has been solid ever since.

To commemorate Y&T's newly remastered, re-released "In Rock We Trust" CD, Karen Alvarez of Tribute Video Productions recently created a cool video for Y&T's 1984 song "Rock & Roll's Gonna Save The World". Watch it at YouTube.

Y&T celebrated the reissues of "Earthshaker" (1981) and "In Rock We Trust" (1984) by performing both albums in their entirety on March 17 at the Independent in San Francisco.

Re-released in February, "Earthshaker" "was carefully digitally re-mastered in November 2006 at a high sampling rate taken directly from the 1/2" analog master tape. This new CD captures the sounds of the original mixes like no other version available." Also reissued in January, "In Rock We Trust" was "carefully digitally re-mastered in November 2006 at a high sampling rate taken directly from the digital master tape," according to a posting on the band's site. "This new CD sounds clear and open like no other version previously available. Along with the original songs, there is an additional bonus track of the rarely heard studio recording of 'Go for the Throat'."
