Dear Sputnik community, I've never heard any of this band's music and don't know shit about this guy, but we need to decide whether we're going to miss him or not.

First and second album rule. His voice is shit now anyway, so this may be a good chance for the rest of the band to get some fresh talent

I've seen that episode countless times.

Probably good that he quit. He's been looking pretty rough for a while anyways.

Stephen Pearcy was a bad singer in the '80s and he just got worse with time. I doubt anyone's going to miss him.

Seriously though, the only rock singer with less tonality and range than Ozzie. Wait, scratch that, less than BOB DYLAN!

My brother took it pretty hard. He credits a chance meeting with Steve back in the 80's at Hammerjacks for really changing his life for the better. Which is understandable, since he was at a Ratt show talking to Steven Pearcy, so things could only go up from there.

Lol!

Any band that puts Milton Berle in drag in a music video can't be all that bad.
