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 after leading his creation to mega multi-platinum success year after year from 1984 to 1991 and 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 prisoners to approach to metal, Atlantic Records recognized RATT’s potential and star power by 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 Bowie’s “Blue Jean.” Throughout RATT’s nearly four decades of success with Pearcy at its helm, they released 8 albums and played thousands of shows worldwide all the while selling over 20 million records.
QUIET RIOT is a rock & roll phenomenon with over 15 million records sold worldwide. 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. The critically acclaimed QUIET RIOT Documentary “Well Now You’re Here, There’s No Way Back” was recommended by Rolling Stone and spent 2 years in rotation on Showtime. 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 continued its historic journey in 2022. The lineup is composed of QUIET RIOT guitarist Alex Grossi, and vocalist Jizzy Pearl and is now joined by Type O Negative drummer Johnny Kelly.
