4.0 out of 5 stars Excesses of an 80's metal star, 27 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sex, Drugs, Ratt & Roll: My Life in Rock (Hardcover)
I liked this book! I may be slightly biased, as a huge ratt fan and admirer of Pearcy as a frontman, but for me it perfectly encapsulates the glitz and grime of the 80's LA metal scene, whilst describing in detail his early life and the rise of the band which would eventually become Ratt. Add in some amusing personal anecdotes about other bands- Van Halen, Motley Crue and W. Axl Rose all feature, amongst others- plus a reasonably dry and self deprecating wit, and for fans of the hair metal era you've an extremely entertaining read!
I would've liked to hear more about the other band members.....the late Robbin Crosby gets a decent amount of coverage, but Juan Croucier and Warren DeMartini are barely mentioned. Also the songs themselves are hardly touched on- and as Pearcy was Ratt's principal songwriter i find that baffling!
Overall though a good read, especially for fans of 80's rock and metal.
