Thank you, Robbin! \m/

Here is a vid of an interview with Robbin & Bobby recorded in 1985.

Thanks for the reminder Eternal Servant.

RIP to Robbin "The King" Crosby. At his best he probably had a better rock star look than anyone in RATT and he had one of the best rock star looks in ALL of rock and metal!!

I just saw the video for "Nobody Rides for Free" recently on Youtube. What a great song! WHY isn't Robbin in that video?? He's on the cover of the 81/91 album that song is on so why isn't he in the video?? That really SUCKS!

Eternal Servant, who is that guy with the beard in the picture with you?

BigRattfan, yep, as for the rock starr look, Robbin indeed looked that way.

Nobody Rides For Free is released after Robbin left and it was a sound track for Point Break starring Patrick Swayze and
Keanu Reeves.

The beard man is The Metal God, Rob Halford who SEP mentioned about him on recent tweets on American Idols.
I got to meet him when he had a gig in Nagoya one day before The Loud Park on which Ratt was on the same bill.
Judas Priest will be on the last MAJOR world tour. (It doesn't mean retirement.) Folks, check them out!


I fortunately could meet my heroes, RATT, Rob & Glenn Tipton, John Sykes and Pariah whose bass player Sims Ellison (Renee Zellweger's ex-boyfriend who committed suicide after the breakup) passed away on June 6th, 1995.

June 6th is one of the saddest day for me.

Wow! I couldn't tell it was Halford because I know Halford is bald and he's got the cap and glasses on! You are very lucky! Not only you met RATT but you met the metal god Rob Halford! Where did you meet him and how were you able to get a pic with him?

I don't get WHY Crosby wasn't in the Nobody Rides for Free video because he's on the COVER of the 81/91 album that the song is on!! So why wasn't he in the video?? The band just looks weaker without the KING in there!

Pearcy made some nice comments about Crosby on his death anniversary on his twitter page:

Robbin "King" Crosby RIP my brother. I think about him, the man all the time. My partner in crime.

August 4th is Robbin's birthday and he would've been 52 years old. Happy Birthday King!
I've just listened to Round And Round on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0u8teXR8VE4&ob=av2e

If anyone hasn't checked out The Zloz Hour, the guest was Stephen. He talked about Robbin saying he helped Robbin a couple of times. Stephen showed discomfort on someone took advantage of Robbin and telling stories that he's not happy about.
In my opinion, ppl looked at things differently and there are two sides of stories. Whether to judge stories to be true or not true is up to the ppl who read/hear them.

Here is the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLB3GxWEj08


@BigRATTfan, you can read my encounter w/ the Metal God from the link below.

Nobody Rides for Free was released after Robbin left. That's why he's not in the vid.
Twin guitar axes are the fundamental of Ratt. It took twenty years for the band to realize that.

You always had the most towering presence in RATT and that great rock star look!

I've been a fan from Out of The Cellar. Bought the ep then moved forward with Ratt. Bought every album. Never saw them live tho. Was hoping the Ratt/Poison tour they would come to the then Brendan Byrne Arena in Jersey and they never did. I was so bummed. So....I never saw them live. Hopefully now that i live in Spartanburg,SC they will come perfom at the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium. I will say there music helped me through a very rough childhood. I tried liking other bands as much as I loved Ratt but nothing could compare to Ratt at all. Be proud guys. Ya'll are very unique and still moving forward. That's a accomplishment in itself. Btw I'm tangledinyarn on twitter. Anyone may add me. Ratt and Roll forever! I miss Robbin so much....
