ORIGINAL RATT VOCALIST STEPHEN PEARCY TO RELEASE LIVE ACOUSTIC CD TITLED STRIPPED VIA SIDEWINDER MUSIC ON TUESDAY, MAY 9TH
CD FEATURING TEN RATT CLASSICS DONE ACOUSTICALLY TO COME OUT THE SAME WEEK AS VH-1’S AIRING OF RATT: BEHIND THE MUSIC
On Tuesday, May 9th, original RATT vocalist Stephen Pearcy is back for more with Stripped, a new CD offering of acoustic RATT on Sidewinder Music.
Inspired by the feedback from his participation in Sidewinder’s Metal Mania projects (Stripped Vol. 2: The Anthems CD and Stripped Across America Live! DVD), Pearcy decided to lay it down with ten RATT classics done acoustically including “Slip of the Lip,” “Back For More,” “Way Cool Jr.,” “Lovin’ You’s A Dirty Job,” “Lay It Down,” “You’re In Love,” “Mother Blues,” “You Think You’re Tough,” “Wanted Man” and, of course, the RATT anthem, “Round & Round.”
As an added bonus, Stephen and his band – guitarist Frank Wilsey (Arcade/Seahags), guitarist Eric Ferentinos, bassist Chuck Wright (Quiet Riot) and Scott Coogan (Brides of Destruction) — perform great renditions of Led Zeppelin’s “Bring It On Home” and the Peter Green/Fleetwood Mac classic, “Oh Well.”
Recorded in March of this year at the Key Club on the famous Sunset Strip where RATT got their start in the early 80’s, this selection of RATT’s greatest hits plus two will surely please rock fans everywhere.
The new effort comes out the same week that VH-1 will be premiering RATT Behind The Music, which initially airs on the channel Thursday, May 11th (please view your local programming guides for exact times in your area).
Let’s face it… few, if any, bands could rock like RATT and it was that distinctive sound and swagger that led to four consecutive platinum albums beginning with their 1984 debut, Out of the Cellar (which sold over 3 million copies), followed by Invasion of Your Privacy (1985), Dancing Undercover (1986) and Reach for the Sky (1988).
The culmination of those efforts and their last studio album – Detonator (1990) – resulted in a greatest hits compilation titled, RATT and Roll 8191.
Selling over eighteen million albums worldwide and performing nearly a 1000 shows with RATT, Pearcy was the driving force behind one of metal’s finest bands.
STRIPPED once again proves that there’s always time to RATT and ROLL.
