Stephen Pearcy does not care if the press states “he sucks”
Ratt frontman Stephen Pearcy was recently interviewed by Music Existence and spoke at length about his fourth upcoming solo album Smash, which will be released via Frontiers Music Srl on January 27, 2017.
Pearcy was asked whether he has always held the mentality of simply moving forward and not getting caught up in what’s being said to which he replied: “Yeah, I don’t care what the press says. It really doesn’t bother me if somebody says I suck. And if they do, I’d say “Well, thank you. I must’ve been awarded three platinum albums for sucking!”… I’m first and foremost a songwriter, and then I sing and play guitar. As far as the press, everybody’s entitled to their opinion. We all have our on and off days. I make no excuses for messing up; I just get out there and do what I do. Eventually, though, in my case, I want to just really wipe off the dust and not fall again. So when I say it’s a sobering experience, it literally is. There’re things I’ve wanted to accomplish that have nothing to do with music, but it just makes everything in music a lot better.”
In terms of the mic knuckles that he invented, Pearcy stated: “A friend of mine creates mics, and I just put a prototype together of a mic holder that could be utilized in many ways. It will never fall off your hands and can be used as a defense mechanism (laughs)! They just look cool, and I think everybody and their mother has one now. It’s just something I like to do because I’d figured nobody has any product out there for singers. It’s one thing to make a mic stand, but it’s another thing to make a mic holder that’s cool looking and can serve a purpose.”
