RATT Frontman Issues Update On His Upcoming Book

RATT frontman Stephen Pearcy is continuing work on his as-yet-untitled book for a 2012 release. According to Pearcy, the as-yet-untitled book — which has been in the works for two years — will include “so many stories. The good, the bad (real bad) and the ugly.” He added, “It’s a big wakeup call to remember some things, but have to share. Some might learn something from my experiences and get something positive in the end. There are bright moments; it’s not all about Ratt ‘n’ Roll.”

In a recent interview with the San Antonio Metal Music Examiner, Pearcy stated about his upcoming book, “There’s lots of tales in there that people need to know or haven’t known. You know, to get the real opinion. . . It’s a real honest book. The kitchen sink is in there. It’s time to share because nobody knows what we’re about or how you got there or what you went through. I got into music by accident — realistically by accident (laughs).

When asked if his book be a rebuttal to RATT drummer Bobby Blotzer‘s “Tales Of A Ratt – Things You Shouldn’t Know” autobiography or if it will be more autobiographical in nature, Pearcy said, “Both. Because when I started that band, people got the wrong perspective on so many things. That’s why we’re on the level we don’t wish to be on, by default and admission. But everything I say is going to be honest. Bob took his own side on his book. But it’s his own. It’s like when I read the Keith Richards and [Steven] Tyler books, I thought, ‘That’s how I want my book to read.'”
