Vocalist Jizzy Pearl (RATT, LOVE/HATE) will be releasing his new solo album, "Vegas Must Die", on July 19 via Shrapnel Records.
The album's title is said to be a humorous homage to "Sin City," where Jizzy spent a "lost weekend" lasting more than a year. Locking himself away in a room with five pounds of coffee and an acoustic guitar, Jizzy wrote the entire record in three weeks.
Jizzy Pearl is as permanent a fixture on the Sunset Strip as is the Whisky a go-go or the Rainbow Bar & Grill. Starting in the early days of GUNS N' ROSES with LOVE/HATE to arena rock with RATT, Jizzy Pearl continues to do what he loves most, write and record music. Not only has he played on 11 major records and a host of tribute and soundtrack recordings but he has also written and published two of his own books.
In 1990, Jizzy was the singer of LOVE/HATE, whose breakthrough Sony Records release, "Blackout in the Red Room", won critical acclaim and started him on the never-ending roller coaster of singing, recording and touring. LOVE/HATE went on to release five more records in the years that followed until Jizzy joined L.A. GUNS in 1998. In 2000 Jizzy replaced Stephen Pearcy in RATT and has spent the last five summers touring with them. In that time, he completed his second solo record, "Just a Boy", and an EP with ADLER'S APPETITE.
"Vegas Must Die" features the guitar work of former SALTY DOG guitarist Pete Reveen, with production and musical help from GREAT WHITE alumnus Michael Lardie.
