Larry "Ratso" Sloman wrote for Rolling Stone during the first half of the '70s, and also for Crawdaddy and Creem in the same era. His Heavy Metal column "Ratso's Pallazo" ran in 1985. He is also a bestselling author whose work includes On the Road With Bob Dylan, Scar Tissue with Anthony Kiedis, and Private Parts and Miss America with Howard Stern. His book The Secret Life of Houdini inspired Nick Cave to dedicate Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! to him, although Larry claims no relationship to the Larry in that song.
