Rod Gerrard: Lead Guitar
By the way, I remembered two excellent RATT groups who played regularly at the
Room At The Top; Hells Angels and The Outrage. HA came from Salford and The Outrage from Bolton.
Being a fellow guitarist I got on well with Rod Gerrard who was the lead player in both groups. The Outrage were a favourite of mine, sounding very close to The Who. I believe they recorded quite a few singles that sadly failed to chart,
Rod never used mainstream guitars either. I have seen him use a Harmony H77, Framus Nachville, and a gorgeous Gibson Firebird in Pelham blue with gold fittings. A great player is Rod. When I last spoke to him he was moving to America. So if he ever finds Lanky Beat, tell him Mitch says Hello!
