THE DONNAS guitarist Allison Robertson and vocalist Brett Anderson have collaborated with RATT frontman Stephen Pearcy on a remake of the RATT classic "Round and Round". "Yes, [Stephen] rules, and yes, he is a bad-ass," Allison writes in an online posting. "The track was something he had had in the can for a while, but he invited us to come DONNA-fy it up, Brett trading verse lines with him, doing the harmony and leads in the chorus, and I did the harmonized solo section and laid down some rhythm as well. Not only THAT, but Stephen and possibly another special guest shall be joining us onstage at the Crash Mansion show in L.A. on February 6th for a very special rendition of the tune."
Pearcy's third solo effort, "Under My Skin" will be released in Japan on King Records in February-March 2008. Top Fuel Records will make the CD available online first to the hardcore Pearcy RAT BASTARD fans, and RATT fans worldwide.
"Under My Skin" finds Pearcy returning to the early RATT roots, featuring material that is positive and aggressive when needed. Pearcy plays almost all the guitars and solos. Erik Ferentinos (RAT BASTARD, THE ANTIDIVISION lead guitarist, vocalist) is also co-writting again on the new CD.
