Metal Sludge first reported rumors HERE that Bobby Blotzer would not play the bands run of show surrounding NAMM. It turned out to be true and Jimmy DeGrasso filled the shoes and played all west coast Ratt shows in January. It was the first time Blotzer had missed a show since joining the band in 1982.

In recent weeks the band has been thrust into internet turmoil with a barrage of posts from Blotzer. The messages seemed to take direct aim at all of the original Ratt band mates. Blotzer himself called out Stephen Pearcy, Juan Croucier and Warren DeMartini right HERE calling them; “Selfish MFRS, Always” stating they don’t care about people. In another post HERE said “Stephen (Pearcy) is out” and claimed they (Ratt) couldn’t do a record without a band.
