Tyketto were an American heavy rock band of the 1990s who never achieved the success they felt they deserved. The group was put together in 1987 by former Waysted vocalist Danny Vaughn. Brooke St James (Guitar), Jimi Kennedy (Bass) and Micheal Clayton (Drums) completed the lineup.

By 1990 the band had signed to Geffen Records, and released their debut album "Don't Come Easy". Musically, it was somewhere between Whitesnake and Bon Jovi, with Tyketto opening for the former on many bills. However, the rise of the 'grunge' sound in 1991 saw Tyketto's hopes of the big breakthrough begin to recede. Jimi left the band and was replaced by Jamie Scott. Their second album was rejected by Geffen and finally emerged in 1994 under the title "Strength In Numbers" on CMC in the USA and Music for Nations elsewhere in the world.

In March 2019, Tyketto went out on the road to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their second album, ‘Strength in Numbers’. They recorded every night on the tour and then put together a seamless recording featuring the best versions of the songs, which includes the complete album plus a previously unreleased song, "Wait Forever", which was written during the original sessions but never recorded. Tyketto were always one of those bands which for never gained the heights many thought they would, yet another victim of the grunge scene. They took a break for a while, but have been a touring band again for some years, and while ex-Waysted singer Danny Vaughn and drummer Michael Clayton are still there from the time of the early albums, there is no doubt this is a valid line-up, and they know they are in front of real fans (hear the crowd react in Glasgow when Vaughn asks if there was anyone there from the Barrowlands gig some years before).

There are a few times when the harmony vocals aren’t quite on, but that to me says it is a true live recording as opposed to having been “fixed” in the studio, and I would much rather have that. The band were having a blast, so were the fans, and they were definitely feeding off each other. ‘Strength In Numbers’ was originally rejected by Geffen, and the band were consequently dropped, and it took them two years until it was picked up by Music For Nations. But the guys in the audience that night were lapping it up, and one can only wonder what might have happened to this band if grunge had never appeared. Melodic hard rock, stacks of hooks, great vocals, this is sheer fun from start to end.
