Ramblin' Man Fair kicks off in Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent today and Friday is purely for the Metalheads with Graham Bonnet opening proceedings in the afternoon before Y&T and Last In Line crank things up a notch and pave the way for the mighty Saxon to bestow pure Heavy Metal Thunder upon the 'garden of England'.

Y&T are a man down howver as guitarist John Nymann will miss this afternoon's Ramblin' Man Fair and Saturday's Rock & Blues Custom Show after becoming "very ill".

Frontman Dave Meniketti states:

"Though we'll miss him at this weekend's festivals, we all wish John the best on his full recovery and know he will be fine. He's so disappointed, and this is the first time he’ll miss a show in his long career due to illness. John looks forward to returning to the UK with Y&T on the fall tour.

"While this is a shocker to us all, Y&T will power through and play Ramblin' Man Fair and Rock & Blues Custom Show as a trio, with a local UK friend joining in on a few songs to help round out the sound.

"We know that our awesome UK fans will be supportive, and we want you all to know that we're completely ready to kick some ass on these two festivals!"

The UK friend Dave refers to is Scottish born Ross McEwen. Y&T's current line-up is rounded out by drummer Mike Vanderhule and bassist Aaron Leigh.

Y&T released their live album, 'Live At The Mystic', in November 2012 via Frontiers Records and their last studio album, their first in thirteen years, 'Facemelter', was released in May 2010, also via Frontiers.
