Joey Alves är död


Ytterligare en av originalmedlemmarna i Y&T har avlidit. Joey Alves var kompgitarrist från bandets debut fram till 1987 års platta ”Contagious”. Joey Alves blev 63 år gammal.

Nedan följer Dave Menikettis Facebookinlägg om sin vän och gamla bandkamrat:

”It’s with great sadness that I write this today. Y&T’s original rhythm guitarist, Joey Alves, passed away at 7:10 this morning at the age of 63. He suffered from ulcerative colitis and other complications that led to his passing. Joey was one of the finest rock rhythm guitarists, and I’ll always remember playing next to him chunking out those monster chords with his classic red double cutaway ‘59 Les Paul Jr. As Ronnie Montrose once said about Joey, “There are rhythm players, then there’s Joey. A class of his own…..”.
