Been to it many times. Saw RATT at M3 a few years back...... They went on right after the 2nd to last Queesryche show with the Vest. I guess Blotzer thought he could do what Tate couldn't lol....

I wouldn't mind hearing the new material that they might somehow come up with.
Maybe they will write a tribute sing to Robin. Quiet Riot did for Randy. Superb song.
Girlschool wrote a tribute song for Kelly, also, that was a pretty cool salute.
But to see them live...I'd rather keep my youthful memories of their amazing four years.

"I Can't Take It" sounds almost exactly like something from the last Ratt album.

The saga continues... BlotzRatts' final gig of 2016 was canceled hours before gig time when the venue received a cease-and-desist order from the Pearcy/Demartini/Croucier corporation Laughing very hard

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/concert-by-bobby-blotzer-ratt-shut-down-over-name-dispute/

Quote :
The Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mt. Pleasant explained the show cancelation in a Facebook post, saying that they were "recently notified of a trademark dispute involving the band RATT. Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort was issued a 'cease-and-desist' letter from the parties claiming rights to the RATT trademark. After careful review, Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort has concluded that it cannot proceed with the performance of Mr. Blotzer due to the current legal dispute over the RATT band trademark."

Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort added that it was looking forward "to booking RATT on a later date if and when the dispute regarding the trademark is resolved."

TL,DR version: the Casino sez "Forget it, we're not getting in the middle of this @$#&."

"The ruling that we have, there are many legal strategies that will be employed in order to change and bring to the court's attention various other pieces of evidence as well as prior rulings," he continued. "So it's a long time before this is done. We're not even at the appeals part yet, because there's no judgment to appeal. So there's a lot of time. Status quo will remain, and WBS owns the marks."

Insisting that his current band is still called RATT because "there is nothing else to call it," Blotzer said that he "made the decision as half owner of the [RATT] name" to start playing live shows as RATT without any other members of the band's classic lineup. He explained: "WBS owns the name. I'm 50% of WBS, Inc. and still am. WBS, Inc. still owns that name right this moment. That's not changed.

"We've had tremendous, great success with this band out here," Blotzer said, referring to his current version of RATT. "I mean, we're headlining big gigs. It's doing really well. I'm very proud of that. So I think [Warren, Juan and Stephen] seeing this kind of success, now all of a sudden, from not liking each other or talking, [they're now in] collusion together and they decide that they're gonna do this at this point, and there you have it. They're making their move, and they don't have the name RATT."

Blotzer apparently still has control of the "official" Ratt FB page, which continues to be a cavalcade of unintentional comedy, as he keeps posting defiant brain farts like this one from today, an apparent response to the "other" Ratt's gig this past weekend:

Quote :

Hey Rattlers:
Just a small bit of info regarding the three bland mice show over the weekend and where things stand on the legal side Smile

Thing look a lot worse than you think.  If those lying thieves or anyone not privy to this knows whats going on, it sure as fk ain't over.  It it were, where's the judgement?

PREDICTION:  Injunction granted W.B.S. Inc RATT on tour all year.

Can't give it all but, I can say with a true tongue, this is definitely not over.  Very good surprises coming.

I saw a video of a couple of songs.  Groundhog day.
SOS, Snoor
The Crypt Keeper Pearcy and his 15 year old stage garb,
UGHHHH

Blotzer is an idiot. He can't admit it's over. He needs to either join another established band or fade away. He burned his last bridge...

Thanks to this hilarious ordeal sparked by Blotzer's brief ego run, the real Ratt lineup looks rejuvenated and actually happy to be out there together again. The opening night setlist was kind of lame (why did they cut "Slip of the Lip"?) but I'm looking forward to seeing this lineup at M3.

As long as they try to recapture the sound they had on the first two albums, especially songs like Lay It Down, then I'm very interested in the return of classic RATT. I really like the first song on the last album. It reminded me of Judas Priest!

Funny how Blotzer referred to Pearcy as the "Crypt Keeper" while he looks like Mr Potato Head or a creature from Sid and Marty Croft.

Pearcy still can't sing a lick without the help of studio magic, but that's nothing new.

The one thing Blotzer's version of Ratt had going for it just quit...

Quote :
Earlier today (Wednesday, February 15), Alan released the following statement via his Facebook page: "As some of you may already know, I have resigned from my position with Bobby Blotzer/RATT as of January 23rd.

"I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your love and support along the way! I would not have made it through this without you!

"I will be working and focusing on my original music this year.

"If you would like to catch me live, I will be doing solo acoustic shows throughout the year as well (what I enjoy most).

"With that being said, I have had an absolute wonderful time on this tour. I have met a lot of very good people and gained experience that I would not have otherwise. For that, I am forever grateful.

"I will leave you with this: What I believe is the most important lesson here for myself is that music is a universal language. It is a tool... a very powerful tool. It is intended to bring peace, love and unity. I believe that to use such a beautiful and powerful thing for any other means is a complete disservice to the people! Music is power... unity is absolute power. Let's enjoy music, and let it bring us together as it is intended to do!

"Much love, people! Look forward to seeing you soon!"

He's reading Blotz's rants and wants to distance himself from that train wreck. Laughing

He was actually a member of "Geoff Tate's Queensryche" early on!
