40 Nights of Rock Archive: Video blog, Day 7 - Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun

In Day 7’s video blog, we get a recap on the previous night’s RATT show, a primer on the “power violence" genre, and a face-rockin’ clip of Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun playing at a super-cool bar called The Triple in Richmond, Va.

RATT - “ROUND AND ROUND” (LIVE 1984)

Holy shit, this clip rules! This was my favorite song when it came out. I think I was four or five. It still rocks my face. And I can also vouch that RATT is just as good live now as it was 25 years ago.

Yep.  RATT.  ’80s Glam Metal Gods.  Over 20 million records sold worldwide. Essential hits and genre-defining songs & videos—like “Round and Round,” “Back for More,” “Lay it Down”—that are imprinted on the DNA of most of us who grew up with them.  

Their 7th album Infestation comes out next Tuesday on Roadrunner. I’ve listened to it a couple times, and am totally digging it. The songs and tone sound at once classic and current, not to mention it totally rocks.

Lead guitarist Warren DeMartini will be talking to us before RATT takes the stage at Ram’s Head Live in Baltimore on May 6th.

Everybody should be really excited about this one…
