They're one of the few glam metal bands that I liked. I was really into this band in the 80s. Warren is really a good lead guitarist. I also liked the late Robbin Crosby's guitar playing.

I owned their 3 first LPs: out of the cellar, invasion of your privacy and dancing undercover. I haven't listened to them in a long while so I can't recommend a specific song.

As for recommending a band that sounds like them, the only I can think of right now is Dokken. Just do a search in the forums. There has been a few threads lately on their former lead guitarist George Lynch.

I have their best of and I like it. My favourite song is "Nobody rides for free". If you like them I think that you'll like Motley Crüe (Dr. Feelgood) ,Dokken, Cinderella, Skid Row,Tesla and some BonJovi (The first 4 albums), Poison, Twisted Sister and Warrant albums. Some of this bands are more "pop" that Ratt but maybe you'll like some of thier stuff.

I'm a bit young to tell this but I think that Ratt's first "Hit" was Round and Round.

Their first 4 LPs all went platinum in the states. And you are correct that it all started with Round and round.

I was a big fan back in the day and saw them twice. Once when Bon Jovi opened for THEM, (around 1984) and once at an outdoor amphitheater. The first time they were pretty decent the 2nd not so much. Check out the song Way Cool Jr which is on the out of the cellar album. I still like that one.

This band was big back in my time. Their recordings sound great, but every time I caught them live (usually opening, 4 times I think) they where really bad. Sounded awful and the showmanship wasn't good either. sad.gif

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Find the CDs used and buy them. That's what I'm doing. All my old glam/hair metal albums are either in vinyl or cassette.
