The glam rocker Stephen Pearcy (born July 3, 1956) is still Ratt frontman and continues to tour with the band. Also, he created the bands Firedome, Crystal Pystal, Mickey Ratt and Ratt Arcade, Vicious Delite, Vertex. And recorded five records as a solo artist.

Inspired by Aerosmith, Kiss, Van Halen and more, the band was formed in 1976 under the name of Mickey Ratt (changing to Ratt in 1983) It had Stephen Pearcy on vocals, Robbin Crosby and Warren De Matini on guitars. Also Juan Croucier on bass and Bobby Blotzer on drums.

In 1983 the band released their first independent and self-titled EP. This EP that aroused the interest of Atlantic Records. Which released the album Out of the Cellar in 1984. On the tour of this album, Ratt did 320 shows in 14 months. The album contained the track “Round and Round”. That was included deacades later in the electronic games Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s and Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories.

The next album, Invasion of Your Privacy, did not get the same sales as the previous album. They went on tour with Bon Jovi opening. The following album came out in 1986 under the title Dancing Undercover. In 1988 Reach for the Sky came out.

In 1992 they stopped their activities. They returned in 1997 and have continued to perform ever since, despite a legal dispute over the use of the band’s name.
