RATT Drummer BOBBY BLOTZER's Wife Files For Divorce

March 26, 2019

According to The Blast, original RATT drummer Bobby Blotzer's wife has filed for divorce.

Michelle Blotzer filed Tuesday in Los Angeles to end her marriage to the rocker. The two were married in 2013 and have no kids.

This is the 60-year-old drummer's second marriage. His first marriage to Jenni Blotzer ended in 1998.

Blotzer has spent the last few years battling with his former bandmates over the rights to the RATT name.

Starting in late 2015, Blotzer spent about a year and a half playing shows under the name RATT with a lineup in which he was the sole member from the band's '80s heyday. The drummer's efforts were met with legal challenges by singer Stephen Pearcy, guitarist Warren DeMartini and bassist Juan Croucier, who objected to his use of the RATT name, referring to Blotzer's version as a "cover band."

The most recent version of Blotzer's RATT consisted of Bobby, Stacey Blades (L.A. GUNS) on guitar, Seann Nicols (a.k.a. Sheldon Tarsha, QUIET RIOT) on vocals, Mitch Perry (TALAS, HEAVEN, STEELER, MSG, LITA FORD) on guitar and Brad Lang (Y&T) on bass.

RATT's current lineup consists of Pearcy, Croucier, drummer Pete Holmes (BLACK 'N BLUE) and guitarists Jordan Ziff (RAZER) and Chris Sanders (BRITNY FOX, KNIGHT FURY).
