Ahead of Ratt's concert on September 14 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic, New Jersey, frontman ad very longtime HardRadio friend STEPHEN PEARCY spoke with Ryan Loughlin for Atlantic City Weekly. Read an excerpt from the interview: What is touring these days like compared to how it was in the '80s? Stephen Pearcy: "Well, I'm surprised we all made it through the '80s! (Laughs.) But now it's about business. We've done the fun and that's over with. Nowadays we take much better care of ourselves and the music." Do you still enjoy it like you did back then? Pearcy: "Sure. I just try to have a good time. It's still a party to me. You don't have to go to the actual party, but it's still fun." Do you have any plans for a new record? Pearcy: "Yes, there's plans for new music, without a doubt. We're deciding now how we want to go about releasing it, whether it will be a full record or just a bunch of singles. I think we will probably go that route though, release a few singles, see how people take to it and the rest is easy."
