"I wouldn't say we were their first pick or they were our first pick – tours are tough," Extreme front man Gary Cherone says to Noisecreep about the band's upcoming trek with 80s rockers RATT.........nuff said
"Well, yeah, yeah, right, that’s true, we started out as… we were a hard rock band, in a sort of Aerosmith vein. A lot of the other bands that were opening for us, like Metallica, or Armored Saint, those guys were like, "arrhh," in studs and in leather [adopts a cookie monster voice], and we were more into fashion. It was Stephen’s concept to do that. Our photo shoots were always with those clothes from King’s Road-looking places, almost Duran Duran throwaways, you know. So it sort of separated us from the others. And the material was a potpourri of pop and hard rock songs. Pop-rock, which I like, personally. As far as the girls go, yeah, we had Marianne Gravatte on the cover of Invasion of Your Privacy, and she’s a very hot-looking, unobtainable girl for most of us [Laughs]. But then when we did the video for “I Want a Woman”, we specifically went the other way."
