Former QUIET RIOT Guitarist To Replace JOHN CORABI In RATT?

According to Metal Sludge, John Corabi (former MÖTLEY CRÜE singer) has quit his gig as the rhythm guitarist in RATT and is rumored to have been replaced by former QUIET RIOT guitarist Carlos Cavazo.

XM's Boneyard host Eddie Trunk, who has a long-running radio show, "Friday Night Rocks", on New York's Q104.3 FM, conducted an interview with RATT singer Stephen Pearcy on July 9, 2008 after the band's performance at this year's Rocklahoma festival in Pryor, Oklahoma. Trunk also spoke briefly with Pearcy and guitarist Warren DeMartini before the concert about how the reunion shows have gone so far and the band's future plans. Watch the two clips below.

RATT celebrated the "Year Of The Ratt" with a very special West Coast U.S. run of dates in April. In honor of their Southern California roots, the band embarked on a four-show mini-tour to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the "Ratt" EP.

RATT recently performed the entire EP along with other RATT faves live on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" to an overwhelming response. Host Bob Coburn expressed that he was "totally blown away" by RATT and that they "flat-out kicked ass" as they delivered one of the best shows in the 27 years of "Rockline".

RATT returned to stores with new DVD and CD releases on July 31, 2007: the first-ever DVD release from the band, "Ratt: Videos From The Cellar: The Atlantic Years", and the audio collection "Tell The World: The Very Best Of Ratt", which features the hard rockers at their studio and live performance peak and includes a previously unreleased track.
