Concert Review: Ratt & Chlorine @ the Newport Music Hall, Columbus, OH (10/1/99)

From what I recall of this show, Chlorine opened and were geniunely annoying, posing more than playing their brand of 80s metal syphoned through grunge, with little sense of melody or dynamics. In other words, I didn’t like them.

Ratt were touring with a new line-up and a new album released during the summer of 1999, weren’t much better. The album was subpar compared to their prime 1980s material, a shame considering their 2010 comeback album was far superior, and lead singer Stephen Pearcy was, vocally speaking, a shell of his former self.

So, I guess you could say I found this show to be lacking, to put it mildly.
