Stephen Pearcy

As founder, lead singer, and songwriter of the metal band RATT, Stephen Pearcy led his creation to multi-platinum success year after year and captured critical acclaim for his performances. RATT, formed, in Los Angeles in 1982 from his previous “brain child” band Mickey RATT, was known for their flamboyant appearance, rebellious attitude, and take no prisoner approach to metal. Atlantic Records recognized Ratt’s potential and star power and signed the band to a contract resulting in the 1984 album “Out of the Cellar”, which became one of many multi-platinum successes. The record generated top ten singles followed by sold out tours throughout the world. Their last recording, 1991’s “Ratt 8191” marked the end of an era, and to the chagrin of many die hard “metalists” who seemingly could never get enough of Pearcy, it seemed to mark the end to a self proclaimed “dynasty of rough & tough metal” that ruled the better part of the 80s. During RATT’s fifteen year span with Pearcy at its helm, they released 8 albums and played over a thousand shows worldwide and sold over 13 million records in the United States alone. In 1992, Stephen, explored other areas of interest, and created Arcade with Cinderella drummer Fred Coury. Vicious Delite, Nitronic and Vertex later followed suit. Today, with the release of his first ever solo debut in 2002, “Social Intercourse”, and 20 CDs to his credit, he continues to record and tour vigorously to the delight of a new emerging fan base of “metalists”. Today, he also heads Top Fuel Entertainment, as founder and CEO, which he founded in 1995.
