Today we take a trip back to 1983 to the second track off Ratt’s self-titled EP, “You Think You’re Tough”.
The EP was remixed and re-released after the success of “Out Of The Cellar” and the video features several guest appearances including Ozzy Osbourne and members of Motley Crue. The lineup includes: Stephen Pearcy – vocals, Warren De Martini and Robbin Crosby – guitars, Juan Croucier – bass and Bobby Blotzer – drums. The legs on the cover of the album belong to Crosby’s then girlfriend, Tawny Kitaen.
Ratt have gone through several lineup changes over the years and splintered off into two groups at one point. The current Ratt lineup includes original members Stephen Pearcy and Juan Croucier along with former Black ‘N Blue drummer Pete Holmes along with guitarists Chris Sanders and Jordan Ziff. Sadly original guitarist Robbin Crosby died in June 2002 of a heroin overdose, not AIDS as had been previously rumored, after he was diagnosed to be HIV positive in 1994.
