On this Six-Pack episode, Mr Matt Porter of The KISS Room and Sonny “Hollywood” Pooni of Growin’ Up Rock join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to assemble a six pack of Y&T gems. We each bring two of our favorite Y&T songs covering their full discography – some hits, some obscure tracks, and some deep cuts. We also share some personal memories of how we got into the band, how their fanbase is super loyal but not as expansive as we’d hope, their heights on MTV and in the 80s, recent performances, and tons more. In fact, at least 16 tons more! So sit back and enjoy a few friends enjoying a tight little playlist of Y&T classics.
In 1989, Extreme made their debut with a self-titled record on A&M Records that was kinda, sorta produced by legendary producer Mack.
In this second episode of the Pod O’ Graffitti series, your hosts Sonny “Hollywood” Pooni of the Growin’ Up Rock Podcast, Brian Sword of The Double Stop Podcast, and Eric Miller of The Pods & Sods Network share their thoughts on this debut album. Tons of trivia, tons of little factoid nuggets, a close examination of the lyrics both immature and deep, lots of “Nuno’s solo is really fantastic!”, talk of B-sides, a few detours into Mozart, CSNY, two drink minimums, and drunken karaoke. Do.. you.. want.. to.. PLAY?!?
