Leslie Ripp is an American musician, composer, rock/metal/blues guitarist, born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. Today Leslie still makes the Island paradise his home. Leslie’s first exposure to performing music came with his school music programs. Leslie was formally trained in piano and percussion, playing in his school concert and symphonic bands. Having more of a passion for the rock and metal music of the times, Leslie eventually self-taught and dedicated himself to playing guitar. 1982 Leslie met guitarist/singer Tom Azevedo, and formed the metal band Rat Attack. Rat Attack would be Leslie’s first experience at composing original music and the first band that would be dedicated to playing only originals. 1983, with the addition of Paul Schofield on drums and Marc Chambers on bass, the band self-produced, and released a demo album cassette titled Rat Attack, which included eight original songs written and recorded exclusively by the band. The album was recorded and mixed at Rendezvous Recording, a popular local studio owned and engineered by Pierre Grill. Although Rat Attack never went on tour, the album was distributed to several local and mainland radio stations that played metal music, and quickly developed a small following and popularity with the metal scene of the 80´s. Rat Attack was unfortunately short lived, and split up shortly after the release due to not generating any sustainable income. Surprisingly to this day, the album is well recognized as a cult metal classic, and is still gaining a lot of new fans and followers. The album was re-released in the 1990’s by Old Metal Records as a limited edition CD & vinyl, and re-leased again in Sept 2018 as a limited edition CD & vinyl by Sonic Age Records (Greece). Today original Rat attack cassettes have become sought after collectors’ items. Leslie has claimed that even he doesn’t own one himself.
