Dave Menikettithe name is synonymous with musicraw, hard-edged, melodic, soulful. His firstsolo CDON THE BLUE SIDEreceived worldwide acclamationparticularly in Europe and Japan.His sophomore solo CD, the self-titledMENIKETTIrevisits, as Dave says, his melodic, rock-basedroots. From its first churning note onMessin with Mr. Big, Daves music grabs you. This is notbackground music. It pins your ears to the speakers and kicks you in the butt. Its infectious,delicious rock and roll that satisfies the soul. In other wordsMENIKETTIis pure Meniketti.For the uninitiated, Dave Meniketti was born and raised in Oakland, CA where he has been an iconfor guitar players worldwide and a Bay Area vocal and guitar legend for over two decades. Perhaps itis the diversity of the artists that influenced him as a kid (Hendrix, Coltrane, James Brown, LedZeppelin) that is responsible for his varied expressions in both his singing and guitar playing. Andwhat truly makes him admired by rock stars to the kid on the street.As the lead singer/lead guitarist with Bay Area Rockers Y&T, Meniketti has sold over 4 million recordsworldwide, recorded 17 albums and toured across the United States and around the world. His stylehas influenced some of the major stars in rock and over the years hes been asked to join many topbands including Ozzy Osbourne and Whitesnake.When Y&T took a break from recording and performing, Dave wasnt ready to hang up his guitar.After building his own recording studio in his home, he answered a primal call and recordedON THEBLUE SIDEto quench his passion for the blues. Followed up with his pure rockin sophomore soloreleaseMENIKETTI, this CD drives home the reasons why BAM Magazine christened Dave a guitarhero in the classic sense of the term, and why the BBC calls Daves guitar playing special…indeed.If you havent spun this CD yet, put your leathers onand get ready to rockyoure in for a good time.Youve got Daves word on that and you can take that to the bank.
