Bobby Blotzer Says RATT’s Classic Lineup “Owe It” To The Fans To Reunite

Bobby Blotzer has expressed interest in taking part in a classic RATT reunion. The drummer says the band “owe it” to the fans to make their return.

Blotzer said the following while sharing a poster for the 1985 Day On The Green festival:

“Hard to compute this , 37 years ago a few days ago in 1985 We played 3 shows with Scorpions, This one and 2 nights at the Tacoma dome , huge shows. Then we went back and resumed our headlining tour what is this New Jersey band call Bon Jovi opening up! Man how did this time fly like this?”

He then added the following in the comments:

“You guys want a RATT OG TOUR, email Warren [DeMartini, guitar] he’s locked in his rose garden. Juan [Croucier, bass] is locked in his house somewhere but him and Stephen [Pearcy, vocals], whew not good. Stephen and I great and ready to friggin RATT N Roll.”

“I really believe and I’ve said this to the band , We owe this to them. You guys were the ones who fuels the RATT tank from the get go.”

He continued when asked how he has been doing:

“I’m cool, Sort of in retirement lol just been playing golf working on my Suntan, my swimming pool helping raise my girlfriends two kids raising my dogs and cats I’m bored at the same time lol I want to play.”

He also added the following about the lack of a RATT reunion:

“Everybody lives very comfortably and doesn’t really have to go on tour,” he wrote. “Some of us are just tired of the way things get run and not having the power to change it. When you have five seasonal Indians running around that’s what happens. For me I don’t want to hear about any old stuff why do you do this why did he do that etc. all I wanna do is rehearse for the tour and get on the road and entertain you guys. That doesn’t mean we can’t be friendly to each other I just don’t wanna at this point fight about anything.”

“We have one of the best catalogs in arguably at least a big part of rock history and it’s a shame that we’re not out playing it. But it still sells like crazy and brings a hell of a lot of money and so people are still enjoying it and buying it planet download it and all that other kind of stuff. If you can read between the lines are I think you understand what’s in certain peoples minds”
