What would you do if you could transport yourself back to 1983? I think we can all agree that "We're in!"

Well, you may not able to actually transport yourself but the findings from Stephen Pearcy's personal archives is almost just as good. RATT got signed to Atlantic Records in July of 1983 and from that point forward they hit the road and never looked back. How crazy is it that throughout back to back shows for a solid 9 years, Stephen Pearcy kept so many items along the way. Items that regularly would've been thrown away after use.


Although the years flew by like a blur, somehow, Stephen Pearcy had the insight back then to capture these historic moments of his career and archive them some 44 years in the making.

Take a walk down memory lane with these rare finds that you will never see anywhere else since they come directly from Stephen's personal collection.


The set list above was taken from the night that RATT got signed to Atlantic Records (although Stephen dated it wrong, the actual date of the show was July 27, 1983 at The Beverly Theater). Notice the specific stage direction, wardrobe notes, as well as, Brain Slagels' phone number. If you don't know who Brain Slagel is, he started Metal Blade Records which in turn put out the very 1st recordings of both RATT and Metallica on the same record in 1982, "Metal Massacre" .
