I'll eat you alive, baby don't you be late"

1987 saw W.A.S.P release a live album entitled LIVE... IN THE RAW.Recorded at the Long Beach Arena and the California Theatre, LIVE... IN THE RAW reached #77 on the Billboard album chart.

LIVE... IN THE RAW included one studio track "Scream Until You Like It" which was the theme song for the horror movie "Ghoulies II". Also during this time period drummer Steve Riley leaves the band and joins LA Guns. Due to past drummer problems, W.A.S.P. decided to remain a three piece, hiring drummers for studio and live work. One of 87's highlights saw the band perform at Castle Donnington.

Fully understanding that they had to come back stronger than ever after releasing a live album, W.A.S.P. took the better part of 1988 off in order to re-charge and write THE HEADLESS CHILDREN.
