Milton Burle's Strange Career Choice - Starring in Ratt's Music Video "Round & Round"

Of all the musical acts in the 1980's, why did Uncle Miltie decide to star in "Round & Round," the debut single/video by the metal band Ratt? Surely he could have starred in a higher profile band, no? Ratt was brand new to the scene at the time, and could they have possibly paid Burle a suitable sum of money for his work in the video? I guess so, but how?

Strange.

Berle's nephew was Ratt's manager. He did it as a favor to him.

I hear for their next video there will be a cameo by John Stamos

Fuld's correct - he did it as a favor to his nephew who was Ratt's manager - and you know what - they were a pretty decent band.

They were horrible songwriters, but they were really great musicians.

I always thought DeMartini was a very good guitar player.
