"After 30 years creating the band Ratt and losing a real brother, (late guitarist) Robbin (Crosby), it's time that I personally part ways with the band.

I am officially done with having anything to do with them due to the constant turmoil, unresolved business, personal attacks/threats in the public forum,
and most of all, the disrespect to the fans.

I'm very content and proud of the legacy and the music I've created. This music will live well beyond any of our lifetimes. I owe no one anything but a huge heartfelt thank you for coming to the party for the last 30 years.

With much respect, life goes on and the music I created will continue to be heard for years to come despite the dark clouds that have lingered for far too long. I will personally continue to make music and perform live shows.

See you out there!"


Good, now do what everyone else does and find a guy on YouTube that can actually sing.

Ratt is still an active band?

Ratt is still an active band?

They became active again in 2007, did a co-headline tour with Extreme in 2009, released "Infestation" in 2010 (one of the better comeback albums) and Juan Croucier rejoined the band in 2012. Mostly been fly-in/one off dates since then, but yes, they're still active. Until today, at least. If this gives an opportunity for Warren to do another solo album, I'm on that like flies on shit.

Wouldn't be the first time.

Saw them twice in recent years; they were great both times.

Yep, at least once. Surely they had Jizzy Pearl sing with them live at some point? I thought that was a rule?

If not, in b4 Jizzy Pearl joins Ratt.

And I'm pretty sure that when it did, Pearcy toured solo as "Stephen Pearcy's Ratt".

Yeah he was the singer from 2000-2006

Bobby Blotzer:


"To our/my Ratt fans and friends... I will say to you guys, I am sorry that I brought you guys into our personal world and turbulation. I've been so personally driven to a breaking point with our band being held hostage every year, that I've kind of been snapping. I wish we were still all 4 together and doing business as great as we have been doing. Especially last year. This is why its so nonsensical to me to have this disruption in a business we've built for the last 33 years.

Reality sits at, Stephen and I have gotten along since his return in '07. Aside from the fact that he basically quits every year. It's been hard to deal with. I feel bad that I might have put a dividing line out here, and for that I'm feeling bad about and I to a certain level feel the need to apologise to YOU Guys. My words were true, but the words should have stayed in my mind. And again I state that, I was only kidding about this picture thing with Steve, dumb joke. You ever done that? Exactly.

When this news popped today, my phone was blowing up all day while I was trying to enjoy an afternoon with friends and I just lost it. I was going to come home and tear into that release line by line. I read your thoughts and realized that it's time to shut the fk up. As hard as that feels because we, the 4 other guys in this band did nothing to merit this whole behavior from Stephen.

Thanks for understanding, you guys know I, we love you so much. Ratt is my life and I'll live and die fighting for the mothership. My facebook is going bye bye here soon. So, look to see what happens in a short time... Ratt is bigger than the sum of the parts!"

I would, but I did it for a different band recently. I don't want to wear it out ;)

"The Voice of Ratt Stephen Pearcy" or "Stephen Pearcy's Ratt" or "Stephen Pearcy Plays Ratt" or GTFO.

Last I knew Pearcy used the name "Ratt Bastards" when it wasn't with the band.

He's used Stephen Pearcy's Ratt already too.

Bobbie Blotzer is now saying he quits almost every year, which explains a lot because I thought he already quit
