    How times change... Dave basically destroyed the career of Ratt and every other LA metal band...

    That's a bit overblown, but it still doesn't mean he didn't love that stuff when he was growing up. I know for a fact he really dug the good 80's metal & recall him mentioning Mob Rules by Sabbath & many other examples that wouldn't come out of thin air if he wasn't listening to that stuff when it was released.

    Probably going to be awesome, as is nearly everything Grohl is musically involved with. He's one of those musicians that gets a LOT of credit, maybe seemingly overboard to some people, but he deserves it IMO.

    I know.. he did the Probot album and all..

    but Dave did benefit from the LA metal scene being on the way out. There's no question about it.

    I wonder what Pearcy's voice sounds like these days. It was pretty shaky back in the day, let alone 25 years later. Guess we'll find out.

    Having been 13 years old in 1990... the two were not mutually exclusive

    That "Scene" had a 10 year run basically which is not that bad actually, and the copycat bands (IE record execs) saturated that music style as well, so there was many factors as to why it eventually changed


    A couple of underrated cool songs from them












    That said I LOVE Warren Dimartinis style of guitar, guy really had a killer style and phrasing ability and RATT actually made alot of good songs as well, lets see what happens it might get interesting


    :aok

    I like Ratt but I don't like Pearcy.

    I cannot listen to Ratt anymore, due to Stephen Pearcy. I was a fan in the 80's, and played the hell out of their EP and OOTC cds.

    Now when Ratt comes on sirius/xm Hair Nation, I have to change channels. Pearcy's voice is just BRUTAL.....I'd rather listen to Udo Dirkscheider.

    I can't wait to hear this, because these are two parts of my guitar universe that I didn't see colliding at all.

    Give me Ratt's guitarwork with Dave's vocals and songwriting anyday, please!!!

    Actually, grunge filled a void. MTV turned hair metal into a parody of itself.

    Udo over Pearcy? I'd put them on even plains as far a singing ability. I remember Tommy Lee laughing about the fact that if Pearcy could be a lead singing in a band that anyone could be. That being said I still love Ratt right up to Nobody Rides for Free.

    It did not help that they (hair metal) were actually were a parody of themselves. Motley Crue doing car commercials!?! Without bands like Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera etc all metal probably would have died a much earlier death. In the 80s I would never have imagined a song like Master of Puppets (and much heavier songs) being played on regular rotation on the radio.

    I read an article about this. Dave Grohl and Butch Vig are making a documentary about the console at Sunshine studio or something. It's the console Nevermind was recorded on and a shitload of other huge albums. The studio closed and Dave bought the console and he's recording some of the stuff again people did or something and is making a movie about it.

    How many copycat bands popped up in the late 1980s ane early 1990s?


    TONZ of them, as record execs were looking everywhere for them for a lil while and that JUST SOAKED the genre with the bands and that (Along with other reasons as well) helped Grunge become the alternative


    Im hoping its a good arrangment between the guys
