Rough Cutt

Heavy metal outfit Rough Cutt formed in Los Angeles in late 1981. Originally dubbed Magic, the founding lineup featured frontman Paul Shortino, guitarist Jake E. Lee, keyboardist Claude Schnell, bassist Joey Christofanilli, and drummer David Alford. When Schnell exited in the fall of 1982 to join Dio, the group renamed itself Rough Cutt, dropping Christofanilli and adding guitarist Chris Hagar and bassist Matt Thorr, with whom Lee previously collaborated in an early incarnation of hair metal hitmakers Ratt. Weeks later Lee resigned from Rough Cutt to back Ozzy Osbourne, and after adding guitarist Craig Goldie, the quintet produced its first demo tape under the auspices of producer Ronnie James Dio. Prior to signing to Warner Bros., Goldie jumped ship to Dio's band as well, and new guitarist Amir Derakh signed on for Rough Cutt's self-titled 1985 debut. After issuing Wants You! the following year, Rough Cutt split when Shortino left the lineup to replace Kevin DuBrow in Quiet Riot; the posthumous Rough Cutt Live followed in 1995. While Derakh later resurfaced in the alt-metal act Orgy, in 2000 Shortino assembled a new incarnation of Rough Cutt with guitarist Jimmy Crespo, bassist Sean McNabb, keyboardist J.T. Garrett, and drummer John Homan. By the release of their 2002 LP Sacred Place, the group was officially renamed Paul Shortino's The Cutt. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Rough Cutt Wants You is one of my favs...
The band that bought us Jake E Lee/Claude Schnell and Craig Goldy.
It does sound like a 80s version of Orgy, I'm sure you would all agree
I know the first album had Ronnie and Wendy Dio songs and credits on it which is cool but do you think the # of guitars recorded on Black Widow would be a good stump Eddie Trunk questions? I heard the answer live back in day on a KLOS local show or was it the heavy metal -pack show, don't think it was the Jim Ladd KMET metal show thing, gosh i'm old.

I believe that bobbonnit's musical tastes are better suited to Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus...
I love Shrtino's voice. I wish Pandora would carry his solo stuff and the music he did with JK Northrup
Rough Cutt was one the most underrated bands of their time. Amazing musicians!!

Shortino is one of the best metal vocalists. It always amazes me about how natural, fitting, and musical his vocal flourishes (woah-ohs) were.

Dio once said Paul Shortino was his personal favorite vocalist. Not a bad compliment from in my opinion the greatest ever. Rough Cutt were awesome live and I even got to meet them after a show. Great guys. I agree that Dreamin' Again is one of the all time great 80's metal songs. It's truly a shame that this band got no recognition back then and people think of horrible bands like Poison when they think of that era. Dio/Halford/ S h o r t i n o are my all time top 3 vocalists.
I love Rough Cutt and Paul Shortino is one of my favorite singers.
Paul Shortino has an amazing voice! Unmistakeabl e in the "Stars" release by Hear 'n Aid. Dreamin' Again is one my all-time favorites!
If you're a true 80s Metal fan and if you haven't lsitened to them before, please do! However, it's not "octane" metal. It's metal with a great groove (sometimes sexy and slow) that is only enhanced by Shortino's unique vocals. The talents behind him are amazing as well. Would've loved to have heard their next LP had they not split up to join the forces of Dio, Ozzy and Ratt.
