I love these old, invariably early 80's, clips. Ratt were great back then, and Pearcy even sounded like a singer [after a fashion]. Although if I never have to watch Croucier's stage moves again it will be too soon.

The most stark contrast between a 'hungry' band and that same band just going through the motions is Y&T. The lean and hungry footage from Reading and/or PinkPop compared to the flabby and overblown laziness of their official video release is incredible....and it was only a matter of 3 or 4 years. Meniketti is too busy posing to actually play properly a lot of the time.

It also serves to illustrate how the 'scene' was beginning to eat itself.

Y&T - Reading Festival 1982 full show

Y&T - Live 1985 [official]
