16 episodes

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 and 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

Each episode of Cathouse Hollywood Riki recaps 1 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 5 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

Fantastic

You have got to make it longer or just do more shows I could listen to it all day long

Rejuvenated Youth

I’ve always loved Riki since I was an 8th grader in a small Ohio town just getting MTV. I wanted to go to the Cathouse so bad but I was a minor & a million miles away. Nobody paints a verbal picture like Riki Rachtman. Even with 13 episodes down; I have so many questions!! Thx for helping me regress to a 21 ur old in 1986 - which I never was. 🥰😎

1986-1992 I lived in nyc but I always wanted to live in the west coast in that era. Thanks to Riki I can live it thru his stories. Some which I knew even thou I never been there. You love metal/rock headbangers ball the sex drugs and rock n roll era. This podcast is for you. Listen to the first one then you’ll binge till you have no more to listen to. Thanks Riki 🤘🏼👍🏼🔥🎸
