RATT Guitarist JORDAN ZIFF Talks Plans To Release New Music - "Not A Full Album; Just Track-By-Track"
January 15, 2020, 7 days ago
Ratt guitarist Jordan Ziff, who also performs in ex-Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman's solo band, recently spoke with Mark Strigl at Talking Metal. They discussed Ratt's current status as well as working with Friedman. Check out the interview below.
"We've all kind of been writing on our own," Ziff says regarding Ratt, "because we haven't really had a lot of time to get together and do some writing together. Come January, we have some time off, so we're all going to get together and write some stuff and put out a few singles. That's kind of what we're looking to do; not a full album, just do track-by-track. We don't need to sit and spend a million years trying to do a whole album when, at the end of the day, it's just like, 'Let's just write a good song, put it out, write another good song, put it out.' I feel like that's the best way to do it these days anyway... I have some song structures. I know Juan (Croucier / bass) does, I know Stephen (Pearcy / vocals) does. It's all about just getting in a room and seeing what totally clicks with all of us jamming together."
Ratt frontman Stephen Pearcy will be inducted into the 2020 Metal Hall Fame at its annual non-profit charity gala, The Hall Of Heavy Metal History. The gala will take place today (Wednesday, January 15th) at the Marriott Delta Garden Grove in Anaheim, CA.
Stephen Pearcy will join 2020 gala Inductees Don Dokken, Joe Satriani, and Geoff Tate, amongst other iconic hard rock and heavy metal artist-inductees who will soon be announced. Pearcy is best known as the original vocalist and founding member of the iconic rock band Ratt, which has sold millions of gold and platinum albums. He has recorded five solo records, and is also a producer, composer, and television program creator.
The 2020 gala will be hosted by iconic television and radio personality Eddie Trunk, and will feature additional Inductions and performances by numerous hard rock and heavy metal legends of all time, an All-Star Jam, and other surprises.
