Biography

Tyketto were an American heavy rock band of the 1990s who never achieved the success they felt they deserved. The group was put together in 1987 by former Waysted vocalist Danny Vaughn. Brooke St James (Guitar), Jimi Kennedy (Bass) and Micheal Clayton (Drums) completed the lineup.

By 1990 the band had signed to Geffen Records, and released their debut album “Don’t Come Easy”. Musically, it was somewhere between Whitesnake and Bon Jovi, with Tyketto opening for the former on many bills. However, the rise of the ‘grunge’ sound in 1991 saw Tyketto’s hopes of the big breakthrough begin to recede. Jimi left the band and was replaced by Jamie Scott. Their second album was rejected by Geffen and finally emerged in 1994 under the title “Strength In Numbers” on CMC in the USA and Music for Nations elsewhere in the world.

The following year Vaughn left the band to look after his wife, who had developed cancer, and was replaced by former Tall Stories vocalist Steve Augeri. Tyketto’s sound began to move more towards a Journey-type style (Augeri would later become lead vocalist for Journey), and this line-up released “Shine” in 1995, again on CMC / Music for Nations. However, dwindling audiences and the changing landscape of the rock industry saw the band disband in 1996, releasing “Take Out & Served Up Live” as a swansong, having never really broken through. The various band members went onto other projects, most notably Danny, Micheal and Jamie would reunite in Vaughn

In 2004 Tyketto reformed for a reunion tour with the full original lineup.

    Podolski's a curious one. He's a genuine threat on his day but generally seems to lack that extra bit of pace and movement required to penetrate the stronger teams. I wouldn't mind both Draxler and Podolski in the side (as it stands we have three RWs (discounting Miyaichi, who'll probably be moving on in the next year or so) and only one LW) but I guess we don't want to be too top heavy in that position. It's interesting to me that all of Wenger's summer 2012 signings have been hit and miss... he tweaked the formation slightly when he brought them in but they're not players of a calibre that you'd build a team around. I think Wenger's gradually realized this... for instance, we weren't exactly light in CAMs before Wenger brought Ozil in; perhaps he figured he'd bring more to the table than Cazorla. So far he has, despite playing within himself...

    It's just unfair that only few people know Tyketto. The two first albums should have made this band as big as any of those famous hard rock bands. Danny Vaughn is an amazing singer, this guy has the Midas touch, every project in wich he gets involved is pure gold (Waysted, From the inside, his solo stuff, Vaughn, Avalon....). And they still rock, Dig in Deep is an awesome record , not as good as Don't Come Easy and Strenght I must say, but there are some killer tracks there (Faithless, Love To Love, Here's Hoping It Hurts, The Fight Left In Me, Monday....)
