“Even More Controversial” than the Band Poison – Steev Riccardo

 
Steev Riccardo, former A&R for Roadrunner Records/Enigma Records, discovered and signed The Great Kat. He talked about the experience in his January 17, 2019 iTunes podcast, “Blowing Smoke with Twisted Rico” Episode 3: “I signed to Roadrunner The Great Kat, which was probably even more controversial [than the band ‘Poison’].While at Enigma, I heard The Great Kat’s 3 song tape. It was this blistering thrash metal with violin solos from a Juilliard graduate. I sent a postcard and said ‘It sounds great!’ One day, The Great Katshowed up in California at the office, without any warning, and she was just a trip! When I went to Roadrunner, I spoke to Cees Wessels about The Great Kat and he agreed we should sign her, which we did. She may have alienated many people along the way, but I have no regrets whatsoever about signing The Great Kat and I am proud to have worked with,” -Steev Riccardo,  “Blowing Smoke with Twisted Rico” iTunes Podcast, Episode 3, January 17, 2019.  https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/episode-3-of-blowing-smoke-with-twisted-rico/id1448387957?i=1000427892047&mt=2
