About Tyketto

nullTyketto was one of the best and most underrated radio friendly rock bands of the rock genre. They were never able to reach the massive success they so deserved, with their brand of hook heavy AOR sung with majestic vocals.

Formed in New York, New York by former Waysted vocalist Danny Vaughn, Brooke St.James (guitar), Jimi Kennedy (bass) and Michael Clayton (drums). The debut was an instant classic, sounding like a heavier version of Journey and Foreigner. The real talent was Vaughn's wonderful vocals, as displayed on the debut single "Forever Young" and the powerful ballad "Standing Alone". Jamie Scott replaced Kennedy for the second album, released on the upstart CMC International label, but it quickly sank without a trace.
  Vaughn departed in 1995 to spend more time with his ill wife. Steve Augeri would be his replacement and appear on Tyketto's two final albums. It was apparent that the band would never reach more then cult status, and the members decided to break up. Augeri went on to replace Steve Perry in Journey.

Not much was heard from the former members until 1999 when it was rumored that a reunion was in the works. However, when Vaughn, Scott and Clayton decided to reunite and record once again, they settled on the name Vaughn for the project, but have done the odd reunion show with all the original members. In 2007 the band announced that they would finally but the Tyketto name to rest with a collection of unreleased tracks and demos entitled The Last Sunset.
