During a recent appearance on “The Jeremy White Podcast,” Stephen Pearcy floated the idea of a classic RATT reunion once again. The frontman says he is “opening the door” to the possibility of a reunion with his former bandmates.
Pearcy said the following about drummer Bobby Blotzer’s guest appearance at his solo livestream show and the possibility of a reunion with RATT’s classic lineup:
“Bobby came out and did the jam. I invited him out. You can call it ‘instigate,’ being the instigator, but why not? I’ve gotta be clear — I hate bullshitting our audience, thinking this [latest lineup of RATT] is RATT. No disrespect to these other players coming and going, but it’s getting kind of silly. I’d rather be out doing my own thing until things come to order or we can take a step backwards and forwards and see what you’ve got. Bobby’s the swing, Juan [Croucier] is Juan, and Warren [DeMartini] is definitely DeMartini, man. And rest in peace, Robbin [Crosby]; no matter who tries to replace him, it ain’t never gonna fucking happen. So be it.
So, anyway, that’s where it’s at. Bobby came and jammed out. And he might sit in for a couple of shows. We’ll see what happens. I’m opening the door… It’s not being the good guy — believe me — it’s being the business-minded guy and having some respect for the legacy we leave. Because you know what? I’m on to other adventures in life. I love being on stage and this and that… I’ll give it a few more years of having at it and enjoying myself when I want — not because I have to. I don’t have to. I just have a little bit more respect and integrity for my band RATT. And that’s about it.”
