A must for any Tyketto fan, but also highly appealing to anybody who has an interest in the Melodic Rock scene in the late eighties.

To coincide with their 25th Anniversary tour, this excellent DVD tells the story of how Tyketto came to fruition back in the late eighties, while at the same time depicting the New York Rock scene of the time. Though there are brief commentaries from each original band member, singer Danny Vaughn, drummer Michael Clayton Arbeeny, guitarist Brooke St. James and bassist Jimi Kennedy, the story is actually told through archive home video footage recorded by the band themselves back in the day.

The documentary was put together after Arbeeny sifted through about ninety hours of tapes that he found in his basement. For a huge Tyketto fan like me, it's a truly fascinating experience to see how the band grew from unknowns to one of the hottest bands on the N.Y. scene, regularly selling out shows at legendary venues like The Cat Club and L'Amours. There is some amazing live footage, including early material like 'Tearin' Up The Night', the first ever live performance of the immortal 'Standing Alone' and the night when they recorded the crowd noise that appeared on 'Lay Your Body Down' (originally known as 'Bourbon Street' of course.)

We also see how Tyketto developed the songs that ended up on the 'Don't Come Easy' debut in the rehearsal rooms that doubled as their home. Then, after they signed to Geffen Records, the action moves out to L.A. where the album was recorded with producer Richie Zito. Studio footage sees the recording of classics like 'Wings' and 'Seasons'. Following the album's release there is more great live footage from when Tyketto went out supporting Nelson. A series of video vignettes that were recorded just to pass the time also show the wacky sense of humour that was evident.

As the documentary moves on, the footage is intertwined with interview excerpts and live footage from tours and festival appearances that appeared on MTV's Headbangers Ball, some of which I still have on a very worn out VHS tape. The film touches on how Grunge changed the music scene in the early nineties, then when Vaughn left the band and was replaced by Steve Augeri. To close, there is a cleverly pieced together version of the anthem 'Forever Young' that features live footage of the band at various festivals since their comeback in 2004, which also includes our very own Firefest.

The DVD also includes a 'factoid' version of the 'Wings' video, home video footage of when Tyketto recorded the 'Dig In Deep' album in 2011, and the entire worldwide webcast concert from the same year, that combines question and answer sessions with performances of many Tyketto classics.

This is a must for any Tyketto fan, but also highly appealing to anybody who has an interest in the Melodic Rock scene in the late eighties. As Michael Clayton Arbeeny states at the start of the film, "for every Aerosmith and Bon Jovi out there, there are tens of thousands of Tyketto's"
