R.I.P. Phil Kennemore

Phil Kennemore, bassist and founding member of 70s/80s hard rock band Y & T, lost his battle with cancer today.

A little background on Y & T: "Originally known as Yesterday and Today, Phil Kennemore rose to fame with Y&T in the 1970s, enjoying numerous hits and selling more than 4 million records worldwide before the group parted ways in 1991. Kennemore and Meniketti reformed the band in 1995 and played sporadically before an official reunion in 2001. The band released its 12th studio album, 'Facemelter,' in May 2010. The record marked their first studio album in 13 years."

Here is the video for the band's best known song, "Summertime Girls":
