Riki Rachtman's Cathouse Hollywood Podcast
Riki Rachtman Cathouse Hollywood
From 1986-1992, The Cathouse was at the epicenter of the Hollywood Rock scene. Some of the biggest bands in rock would play unannounced shows at the Cathouse but it wasn't the performances by bands like Guns n Roses, Motorhead, Alice Cooper, Pearl Jam, Faster Pussycat, Black Crows (the list goes on) that put Cathouse on the map. It was the sleaze and debauchery, the Raunch 'n' Roll.
Riki Rachtman former host of MTV's Headbangers Ball owned the Cathouse. He opened it with his roommate Taime Downe from the band Faster Pussycat with the premise of getting free drinks and meeting girls.
Riki enforced a no camera rule at the Cathouse so anything could and did happen. These stories have never been told ... until now.
In each episode of Cathouse Hollywood, Riki recaps one night at the Cathouse and he recounts the night with a participant or witness to what took place that evening. His guest could be a a musician that sold five million records or the girl that worked the coat check. It doesn't matter at Riki Rachtman's World Famous Cathouse we were all Rock Stars.
