Did RATT Steal Songs? LAMOTHE v. ATLANTIC RECORDING CORP. (Blog Story)

Did RATT Steal Songs? LAMOTHE v. ATLANTIC RECORDING CORP. (Blog Story)

In 2009, I saw RATT and Extreme live at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas.  I had seen RATT many times over the years.  But this night was special because RATT was celebrating Out Of The Cellar’s 25th anniversary by playing the entire album, cover-to-cover.  The concert blew me away and made me circle back to 1984 and appreciate again that Out Of The Cellar is more than just the seminal track, “Round And Round”. …

The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Day 3 Recap (Feature/Festival Review)

Friday, June 9, 2017 – Sweden Rock Festival 2017 – Day #3 Bring on the coffee! Rising and gathering at breakfast in the hotel lobby, coffee began its waking effects. With four dudes sharing a hotel room, grabbing a morning shower is a procedure of waiting no matter what you do. But being last and stepping into an inch of cold water covering the floor is uncool guys! Not their fault particularly, we still can’t…

RATT! Back For More With Great White

RATT!  Back For More With Great White

While RATT may be “Back For More” something tells me the drama of RATT is far from over.  Bobby Blotzer doesn’t come off as one who’ll lick his legal wounds and go away quietly.  But for now, the RATT name is attached to a band that at the very least seems authentic.  And like any band proclaiming their triumphant return, they came to Minnesota in February.  Bringing along a band that knows a thing or…

My Top 10 Albums of 2016 – Shawn “Animalize” Irwin

Another year has passed with new music and what a year it has been. With over 100 releases for me to go through to try and break it down to my personal top 10 favorite, wasn’t easy! As a fan of different styles of music, it was hard to pick what I feel as my Top 10. One day it might be some heavier music where other days more melodic. So many other great releases came…

From Big Apple To The Stage At Rock N’ Skull (Blog Story)

1981: I was a 12-year-old kid working for a tiny neighborhood record store called Big Apple Tapes & Records. Now, when I say working for, what I mean is…I made my presence known until they asked if I wanted to do some work for the store taking inventory, stocking, creating displays to post on the walls, etc. I wouldn’t be paid but, I could have access to promotional items like posters and advance copies of…
