IT’S NOT LOVE
George Lynch says he was asked to join Ratt, but declined
Eddie Trunk — George Lynch was on Eddie Trunk’s Sirius/XM radio show this week and had lots to say.
The original Dokken guitarist talks about his band Lynch Mob, Ultra Phonics with Corey Glover and a Native American film project called Shadow Nation.
One subject that Trunk brings up is Ratt, to which Lynch becomes a little …shall we say…fidgety about.
Trunk says to Lynch: “Actually I heard you could talk about Ratt.”
Lynch replies: “Well it depends what you wanna talk about” with a giggle.
Trunk than adds: “Is it true you were offered the gig in Ratt?”
Lynch replies: “Uh huh.”
Trunk: “And you declined?”
Lynch replies again with: “Uh huh.”
Trunk: “Something you didn’t wanna do, the deal wasn’t right, anything you wanna say about it?”
Lynch (pauses): “Ahh, yeah, we just couldn’t come to an agreement on it.”
Trunk asks: “Something that could still be possible, or is it a dead issue?”
Lynch: “I don’t think so.”
Trunk: “Dead issue?”
Lynch (joking) adds: “They haven’t called me back. I’ve been staring at the phone,… waiting for the Ratt phone to ring.”
Trunk bursts out laughing as Lynch makes a little fun with the situation adding “I am playing with Blandini, hello! I don’t wanna play with Ratt.”

The Ratt question is right at the 7 minute mark.
