Stephen Pearcy the Voice of Ratt, with special guests Quiet Riot & Autograph
March 8, 2022
As the founder, lead singer and songwriter of the metal rock band RATT, Stephen Pearcy is credited with
having been a pioneer of the early 80’s Sunset Strip rock scene. Having led his creation to Mega Multi-Platinum Success Year after Year from 1984 to 1991. Capturing critical acclaim for his performances,
style and uniquely salacious vocals. Pearcy formed RATT in Los Angeles in 1982 from his previous band
Mickey RATT. Known for their overtly sexual appearance, rebellious attitude and take no prisoner
approach to metal, Atlantic Records recognized RATT’s potential and star power thus signing the band to
a contract resulting in the 1984 album “Out of the Cellar”, which became one of many multi-platinum
successes. RATT climbed up the charts with singles from “Out of the Cellar”, soaring past Prince’s “Let’s
Go Crazy”, Van Halen’s “Panama”, Madonna’s “Borderline” and David Bowies “Blue Jean”.
Autograph left an everlasting imprint on Rock ‘N’ Roll. The platinum-selling Southern California hard rock juggernauts gave the world the ubiquitous hit “TURN UP THE RADIO”, seminal albums such as Sign In Please, That’s The Stuff, and Loud and Clear as well as unforgettable sold out shows alongside everybody from Mötley Crüe and Ronnie James Dio to Van Halen and Aerosmith. Given those accolades, when they disbanded in 1989, they never left the hearts and minds of millions of fans around the globe. Simply put, a reunion was both inevitable.
Legendary bassist and Metal Health founding member RUDY SARZO has returned to the band after almost a
20 year absence. As per the wishes of Frankie Banali who passed away in 2020, and the Banali estate QUIET
RIOT continues its historic journey in 2022. The lineup is composed of QUIET RIOT guitarist ALEX GROSSI,
vocalist JIZZY PEARL and is now joined by Type O Negative drummer JOHNNY KELLY. QUIET RIOT is a rock & roll phenomenon. Famously described as the first heavy metal band to top the pop chart at #1 on Billboard magazine, the Los Angeles quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album Metal Health.
