Tyketto is an American hard rock band put together in 1987 by former Waysted vocalist Danny Vaughn. Guitarist – Brooke St. James, Bassist – Jimi Kennedy, and drummer – Michael Clayton completed the lineup.

By 1990, the band had signed to Geffen Records, and released their debut album Don’t Come Easy, which included the modestly successful single “Forever Young”. Musically, the album was somewhere between Whitesnake and Bon Jovi, and Tyketto opened for the former on many bills. However, the rise of the grunge sound in 1991 saw Tyketto’s hopes of a 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 International in the USA and Music for Nations elsewhere in the world.

The following year, Vaughn left the band to look after his wife, who had developed cancer, and was replaced by former Tall Stories vocalist Steve Augeri. Tyketto’s sound began to move more toward a Journey-type style (Augeri would later become lead vocalist for Journey), and this line-up released Shine in 1995, again on CMC / Music for Nations. However, dwindling audiences and the changing landscape of the rock industry saw the band split up in 1996, releasing the live album Take Out & Served Up Live as a swan song, having never really broken through. The various band members went onto other projects: most notably Vaughn, Clayton and Scott would reunite in Vaughn. Vaughn would eventually start releasing material under his own name in 2007.

In 2004, Tyketto reformed for a reunion tour with the full original lineup. They played a second set of reunion dates in 2007 and stated at the time that this was the last time the original four members, or any other line up, would ever perform under the Tyketto name. To coincide with the dates the band released an The Last Sunset – Farewell 2007 consisting of alternative versions of previously released songs and unreleased songs unearthed from long forgotten demo tapes.

Despite this announcement, in 2008 Tyketto reformed again for more dates. In April they played the Hard In Rio 2 festival in Brazil, and also played four European dates for October 2008 including Firefest. However due to scheduling conflicts Brooke St. James was unable to join the band for these dates and was replaced by P.J. Zitarosa, a former member of Vaughn and Danny’s solo career backing band. Zitarosa has remained with the band since this.

Tyketto toured Europe in January 2009 and South American dates are planned for May 2009. The band are not currently recording but have expressed interest in possibly writing and recording new material.
