Iconic guitarist George Lynch was a guest on Eddie’s SiriusXM show on June 14th. An excerpt from the interview appears below via

When asked whether the rumors are true that he was asked to join the current touring lineup of Ratt — presumably alongside singer Stephen Pearcy and bassist Juan Croucier for their upcoming shows without Warren DeMartini —Lynch responded, “Mmm-hmm. We just couldn’t come to an agreement on it. They haven’t called me back. I’ve been staring at the phone. My wife’s like, ‘Honey, want to go to bed or eat something?’ I’m like, ‘I’m waiting for the Ratt phone to ring.’ I’m good with it.”

Ratt recently announced plans to move forward with Pearcy and Croucier and as as-yet-unrevealed lineup of other musicians. They also revealed some tour dates, which can be viewed, below.

    This guy is certainly an accomplished guitar player but I don’t see his presence as some sort of game changer. Nobody is spending money on RATT. No way. Forget it. Maybe a 300 seat venue where the local radio station is giving the tickets away for answering trivia questions such as:
    For 10 RATT tickets, who sang STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN?
    For 20 RATT tickets, who was the lead singer of DIO?
    For 30 RATT tickets, what city does the band BOSTON call home?
    For 40 RATT tickets, who the hell cares who George Lynch is?
    For 50 RATT tickets name the members of the band EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER?
    For 60 RATT tickets what influential band featured a song named IRON MAIDEN on their first album?
    For 70 RATT tickets, who was the guitarist of the band BLACK SABBATH FEATURING TONY IOMMI?
    For 80 RATT tickets, what color was the cover of AC/DCs BACK IN BLACK album?
    And now for all of you stump the Trunkers out there, for 90 RATT tickets, who is the only person to perform on every OZZY OSBOURNE album? hint: he has a wife named Sharon. hint he is a singer. hint he was once in BLACK SABBATH?

      Funny! But one exception, I do care who George Lynch is. Where is my 40 RATT tickets? 🙂

    • elliot goldberg on

      your plan is good in theory, but flawed. the ticket giveaway should be in increments of juan. i can only answer juan of your questions. the answer to number juan is neil sedaka.

  • elliot goldberg on

    thanks, dana, I think you meant “juan”. just trying to help.

      I corrected my comment-LOL!!

    I couldn`t see George playing ratt songs just to weird. I could see Jake E Lee doing the job and being a good fit though. I wonder if Carlos is still going to play?

    • DR Is Live on

      Carlos was tweeted that he can’t see himself performing if Warren is gone.

      Guess it takes Juan to know Juan.

  • elliot goldberg on

    dr is live, are you saying that carlos 1st name is juan, as in king juan carlos of spain? the first juan?

    • DR Is Live on

      Damn….that was good EG.
