The 1980s is considered to be one of the most popular and prosperous eras for the genre of rock music. And the Los Angeles quintet, Ratt certainly had an important contribution to make in this regard. With hits like ‘Lay it Down’ and ‘Slip of the Lip’, the band ruled the music charts across the US. Ratt currently comprises of members Stephen Pearcy, Bobby Blotzer, Zarlos Cavazo, Warren DeMartini and Juan Croucier. You can now get the Ratt tickets to join the rock stars as they perform their upbeat heavy metal music hits, at the L’auberge Du Lac Casino and resort, this August.
Ratt was formed in San Diego in 1976. Four years later, they relocated to Los Angeles and began performing at local clubs and venues under the band title Mickey Ratt. During this time their single ‘Dr Rock’ became a huge hit amongst the music fans. Soon they shortened their band name to Ratt. The musicians came up with their first independently released self titled record in 1983. Its success landed them into a contract with the renowned label, Atlantic Records under which they released their professional debut album ‘Out of the Cellar’. The record sold more than three million copies and reached the top ten on the music charts. The song ‘Round and Round’ was the most famous of the collection that was eventually certified multi Platinum. Their second album ‘Invasion of Your Privacy’ came out in 1985. By this time, the group had become a hit concert seller and a staple on the MTV. Their following records namely ‘Dancin’ Undercover’ and ‘Reach for the Sky’ both were declared Platinum. The latter comprised of the classic glam metal hit singles, ‘I Want a Woman’ and ‘Way Cool Jr’.
The year 1990 saw the release of Ratt’s fifth studio record ‘Detonator’. It reflected an expansion and maturity of sound on the part of the music artists. Some of its prominent tracks include ‘Lovin’ You’s A Dirty Job’ and ‘Shame Shame Shame’. Most of the numbers of the collection were written by the band mates in collaboration with Desmond Child. The album also featured the guest appearance of the iconic rocker Jon Bon Jovi as a background vocalist on the song, ‘Heads I Win, Tails You Lose’. The record sold eight to nine hundred thousand copies in total.
During the early to the mid 90s, Ratt went on a hiatus as its various members engaged themselves in individual or other collaborative projects. However, by the late 90s when the public interest in the 80s rock sound gained momentum again, it reunited the Ratt members to produce their comeback compilation album ‘Collage’. It consists of alternate music recordings and new versions of the compositions from the early days of the band. Two years later, Ratt came up with the second self titled album of their career. In reference to the year of its release, the collection is often called ‘1999’ by the music fans. The sound of the album revealed a strong influence of the blues genre. It was a step away from the conventional glam metal hits that the group was known for. ‘Over the Edge’, ‘So Good, So Fine’ and ‘We Don’t Belong’ are some of the prominent numbers of the record.
The most recent album by Ratt ‘Infestation’ was released in April of 2010. It is a special venture for the band as it marks the departure of their long time bass player Robbie Crane. The record was released under Atlantic Records. The album is the perfect combination of modern and classic sounds. Whereas songs like ‘Lost Weekend’ are reminiscent of the 80s Ratt music, tracks as ‘Eat Me Up Alive’ carry a more contemporary touch.
The band is now coming together to perform a collection of their classic and new hits. So get your Ratt tickets and put on your dancing shoes for an entertaining night along the 80s rock stars.
