Product Description

Review

"Very funny and loaded with tales of [Stephen's] many sexual conquests, funny stories about his bandmates, other musical contemporaries of his era and some very unusual first encounters with many of them." (Robert Scales They Will Rock You.com)

About the Author

As the founder, lead singer and songwriter of the popular rock band RATT, Stephen Pearcy led his band to critical praise and multi-platinum success. Formed in Los Angeles in 1982 from the remains of his band Mickey Ratt, Ratt was known for their flamboyant appearance and rebellious attitude.

So I must have read pretty much every rock book going, in some cases even ones where I don't like the band.

By those standards, I think Motley Crue's "The Dirt" would be pretty difficult to ever top in terms of the definitive rock bio, but this one is definitely an entertaining read.

It's a good mix of background into the music biz, showbiz gossip, plus Pearcy's honest assessment of his drug/booze demons.

I have the Bobby Blotzer (Ratt drummer) book too which I also enjoyed, but Pearcy comes across more self-deprecating than his drummer, whilst probably equally flawed as a person.

Anyway, a great read if you're a Ratt fan or 80s rock fan in general.

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.

Ok read - I still struggle not to think of Panama when I hear Round and Round... At least Stephen is honest about being a total idiot trying heroin just to see what it was like... Now you know... His daughter seems proud of him and appears sensible herself. He's older than I realised.. He's also experienced some sad things despite a taste of fame..
The book serves as a drugs warning.
