Back in 1986, years before he was the infamous host of MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball, Riki Rachtman transformed a rundown Los Angeles disco into a one night-a-week rock club that would become, not only a part of rock history, but a music and fashion culture that defined The Los Angeles rock scene. With assistance from his roommate Taime Downe of Faster Pussycat they created CATHOUSE The most NOTORIOUS ROCK CLUB EVER .Riki had a strict policy of NO CAMERAS so anything could and did usually happen at the Cathouse.
