ROCK’n’ROLL & ANARCHY IN THE UK with HEARTBREAKER BILLY RATH

About the show

Playing tracks by

King Salami , The Heartbreakers/Heroes, Left Hand Frank , The Muggers , Big Mama Thornton and more.

An EXCLUSIVE ... Growing up in the 1950s BILLY RATH was imbued with pure rock’n’roll spirit. In the 1960s he honed his bass guitar chops playing in local bands, whilst dabbling in modelling and the life of a gigolo. By the mid-70s Billy was at the epicentre of the New York underground ‘street’ rock’n’roll scene playing alongside ex-New York Doll Johnny Thunders as a member of THE HEARTBREAKERS, whom MALCOLM McLAREN invited to join the Sex Pistols’ notorious ANARCHY IN THE U.K. tour in December 1976. In conversation with Henry Scott-Irvine, BILLY RATH talks about his life and musical legacy, recounting his times with Johnny Thunders, Walter Lure, Blondie, the Sex Pistols, Motorhead, Ronnie Spector, Lenny Kaye, Nico, Left Hand Frank & one of his current favourite bands, King Salami.

Yeah, makes my seven day weekend seem like a good idea. How ever, everyone tells me seven day weekends are not allowed. Well, I never listen to much more than R n R.

what a great show - I do a radio gig too and I gotta say this is very good, quite apart from the fab music - the 'missing Heartbreaker' has his say, not before time - could you 'Lure' Waldo over? He still plays a hot guitar.... thanks for an hour very well spent
