Jason Becker: special Cacophony​ poster drawn by Laurie Sato​ now available

Jason Becker
Cacophony​ poster drawn by Laurie Sato​, back in the day! Laurie was Marty Friedman​'s girlfriend during the Cacophony days. Those times were so much fun! I remember the three of us, and my brother Ehren Becker​, went to a shop in Berkeley, and some kid who worked there started telling us about a cool new band called Cacophony. We were cracking up! I asked him who the better guitarist was, Marty or Jason. He couldn't pick. We never did tell him who we were. Love you, Laurie!

News: Riki Rachtman’s World Famous Cathouse will return to Southern California for one night of debauchery with Cathouse Live At Irvine Meadows!!





Riki Rachtman’s World Famous Cathouse will return to Southern California for one night of debauchery with Cathouse Live At Irvine MeadowsSaturday, August 15 at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater (recently known as Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre) in Irvine, CA. Riki Rachtman created the original rock dance club that dominated the Hollywood scene from 1986-1993. Now, along with Live Nation and Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE), he’s bringing Cathouse Live to a much larger audience with this decadent music and lifestyle festival.

The initial music lineup for Cathouse Live features some of the defining rock artists of the ‘80s and ‘90s, including an All-Star JamExtreme, Cinderella’s Tom Keifer, Sebastian Bach, Dokken, Faster Pussycat, Stephen Pearcy (the voice of RATT), Saigon Kick, Gilby Clarke, Dangerous Toys, L.A. Guns, Junkyard, Trixter, Autograph, Black ‘N Blue, Tracii Guns, Enuff Z' Nuff, BulletBoys, Bang Tango, Jetboy, Pretty Boy Floyd, Tuff and Little Caesar.

Cathouse Live will feature band performances on two stages, VIP Meet and Greets, a vendor village, a chopper motorcycle show, tattoo shops, go-go dancers, and more.

“I recently started a Cathouse Hollywood Facebook page and everyone was asking ‘Why don’t you do another Cathouse?’ I loved the idea and mentioned it on Twitter. So many bands told me that they wanted to be a part of it, that I knew that I had to bring it back on a much larger scale. It was too big for a club, so we decided to do a festival,” Rachtman explains. “The music scene isn't what it was like back then--that type of decadence. We’re going to bring the debauchery of the Cathouse back to Southern California! SoCal needs this kind of rock festival so people will have the chance to go out, have fun and enjoy a great rock show in all its excess. Cathouse was a very successful weekly nightclub for six years, so we’re trying to pack all those years of Cathouse into one night for Cathouse Live. All I want is for those who go to have a good time and say, ‘That was the BEST ROCK FESTIVAL EVER.’”

Tickets for Cathouse Live At Irvine Meadows go on sale Friday, May 15 at 10:00 AM PT at and start at just $15 plus fees.  

Aptly named NOTHIN' BUT A GOOD TIMEYOUTH GONE WILDNOBODY RIDES FOR FREE, and RIKI'S BIG PACKAGE, the Cathouse is coming out of the gate with a handful of exclusive experiences and VIP opportunities to get a front row ticket, have a meet and greet and photo with the bands, be backstage in the dressing rooms, watch the show while standing on the main stage, and drink the night away in the Cathouse VIP lounge. All packages and experiences are available at while they last!

Stephen Pearcy of RATT recalls, “I remember the Cathouse very well…used to go there when off the road with the RATT tours in the ‘80s. Anything and everything went down there. Great jams, good stories in my book about that place. Everybody was somebody or thought they were, and trashed. You knew you had a good time there when you couldn't remember what you did there the next day! Myself, Riki, Fred Coury, Tracii Guns, Taime and a couple others created a jam band called P.I.G. (Partners In Grime). We only did a few shows, got a bus, went out and had a great time. Places like the Cathouse will never happen again. Those were the dayz." 

The original Hollywood Cathouse was known for its edgy, underground, dirty rock 'n' roll vibe that was rooted in punk. It reeked of raunch and pure decadence. Patrons would freely indulge. The DJ played rock ‘n’ roll between unannounced performances from bands like Guns N’ Roses (Cathouse regulars who performed live at the club in 1986 just before their debut record was released), Sebastian Bach, Stephen Pearcy of RATTL.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, JunkyardJetboyBang TangoSaigon KickBlack ‘N BlueLittle Caesar, and many more. Guns N’ Roses video for “It’s So Easy” was shot at the CathouseAlice Cooper played one Halloween, and when Ice-T was banned from every Los Angeles club, Riki invited his band Body Count to play Cathouse. “It wouldn’t be uncommon to see Guns N’ Roses one week and Alice In Chains the next--so many bands played before they were huge. It was also the kind of place where you’d find Robert Downey Jr. rubbing elbows with Aerosmith’s Stephen Tyler,” says Rachtman.

Cathouse was the place to discover the best rock ‘n’ roll. Ask anyone who ever went to Cathouse…they’ll try to piece together what they remember about how legendary it was.With Cathouse Live At Irvine Meadows, the Cathouse is returning for those who lived the legend as it happened and those who are ready to experience this piece of rock 'n' roll history for the first time.

"Riki Rachtman is a great ambassador for a whole generation of hard rock," says Live Nation Executive Vice President Rich Best. "We're excited to partner with his iconic Cathousebrand to bring some of the biggest rock bands of the ‘80s and ‘90s together for this event. With over 20 bands that helped define an era with millions of records sold and dozens of hit songs, Cathouse Live at Irvine Meadows is a great value for fans."

Two lucky unsigned bands will have the chance to play at Cathouse Live at Irvine Meadows via the Cathouse Live Battle of the Bands, held Tuesday, July 14 at the infamousWhisky A Go-Go on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, CA. The grand prize winner will open the main stage and the runner up--as chosen by celebrity rock judges--will open the second stage at Cathouse Live. Bands can apply for a chance to play the Cathouse Live Battle of the Bands by emailing between May 12 and July 1.

Los Angeles Times writer Kastle Waserman described Cathouse in her August 23, 2001 feature, noting: “On any given night, high-heeled, platinum blonds vied for attention on the dance floor. Aspiring rock musicians with impossibly teased hair crowded the bar and offered their standard pickup line: ‘Come see my band play.’ In VIP corners, rock notables mixed easily with Hollywood scenesters…Within weeks of its opening in the late 1980s, the Cathouse became ‘world-famous,’ L.A.'s place to be for rock 'n' roll kicks. A six-year run saw it evolve from a lightning-strike success into a legendary landmark…”

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to re-live the Cathouse experience August 15, 2015 at Cathouse Live At Irvine Meadows.

Hedras Ramos: new Cort Yorktown soon to be put to great use!

Hedras Ramos - with his new Cort Yorktown.

I'm so happy due to my new guitar, this is a truly beautiful instrument and it's really inspiring.

I had never thought I was going to play a jazz hollow body guitar like this one but it's been a real pleasure playing it for the past days.

I'm looking forward to recording some new videos with this beauty! Thanks to Josué Villaseñor, Marcus Do and Cort!

Jason Spell: You Are My Sunshine (Solo Guitar)

My very earliest musical memory is my mother singing to me. She had a few standard children's songs she rotated through, but she sang them as only she could. Her favorite (and mine) was "You Are My Sunshine". For Mother's Day, I thought I'd give it a solo jazz guitar arrangement, with some twists and turns. I think this take on the piece came out with nods to Chet Atkins, Joe Pass, Danny Gatton, Guthrie Govan, Steve Vai, Stanley Jordan, and Josh Martin from Little Tybee. I'm playing on a Carvin Holdsworth HH1 headless guitar.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom! (Watch in HD!)

My arrangement is available in guitar tab + notation format.
