Stephen Pearcy of RATT is my latest Talkin’ Rock guest. The new ‘THE ATLANTIC YEARS’ LIMITED EDITION BOX SET” drops on June 9th. This thing is like the definitive RATT box set. Once again, that drops June 9….you can pre-order it here.
Lots of topics were discussed, like the trouble the band had picking a set list back in the day. Did they have trouble picking the songs? “Every F*#(^!n Day!” We talked about the Monsters Of Rock cruise that just wrapped up.
Stephen told me all about the box set. He said the entire band was involved in putting together the product. “I did Robin’s share of course.” he said about the deceased guitarist. He didn’t hesitate when I asked him to pick one album out of the five that would best sum up the band.
He told me about the MTV years and how important shooting a video was for the band. How about the importance of the rock magazines? We talked about that, too.
He also commented on drummer Bobby Blotzer’s comments about how RATT crushed Motley Crue back in the day. “Bob tends to be a little outspoken.” He went on to talk about this at length. I also had to ask him about the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame….he didn’t hide his distain for that place.
Fun to catch up with Stephen Pearcy of RATT again.
