bobbyblotzer400 In response to singer Stephen Pearcy’s announcement that he has quit Ratt, drummer Bobby Blotzer has released his own statement.

“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 four 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,” continued Blotzer. “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 apologize 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 f**k up. As hard as that feels because we, the 4 other guys in this band did nothing to merit this whole behavior from Stephen.”

Ratt’s last album was 2010′s Infestation.

  1. some(not all) songs on infestation stood up well with the classic stuff. carlos is a great addition. Stephen’s voice is shot and has been for years. he will keep going but the few people will go see him. dig deep boys. you can find a singer who can sing the old stuff but give you a fresh take/start. so much talent out there. start auditions tomorrow. if you rock, people don’t care. get elvis to produce the album so someone will tell you when the song isn’t a good one. take your time and do it right. wait til you hear slash’s new stuff. I have. elvis made these guys step up and it slash’s best work since gnr.

  2. SP owes Blotz & Warren 1.8 million. Now we know. He 86’d the due bill. Broke after the upcoming lawsuit. At a tiny bar near you soon like Billy Joel in ’71 runnin’ from his bill.
