RATT Drummer Says Opportunity To Reunite With STEPHEN PEARCY 'Came And Went'

October 10, 2005

RATT drummer Bobby Blotzer has dismissed reports of a possible reunion with the band's original singer, Stephen Pearcy, despite a newly published interview with the drummer that seems to suggest otherwise.

In an L.A. Daily Newsarticle posted on the paper's web site on Oct. 9, Blotzer is quoted as saying about a possible collaboration with Pearcy, "We're trying to come to terms with Stephen, and we're very close. The guys in MÖTLEY CRÜE are going to make $10 million each this year. We've always been a little under them as far as touring — but not very far behind. . . I think the 'Behind the Music' thing [the VH1 special which is currently in the works for an early 2006 air date] really opened up the channels of communication again, and it's long overdue because RATT was a huge band and we deserve the acknowledgment. . . Now it's just a matter of settling some issues at hand. We're negotiating, and that's a step in the right direction because a year ago, (guitarist) Warren DiMartini wouldn't have even discussed it."

In an Oct. 9 posting on RATT's official message board, Blotzer stated about the L.A. Daily News article, "The interview that's out is not accurate. There was a moment there but it came and went. Old news, old interview."
