Well, whatever drunken ramblings and veiled threats Blotz has been making on social media haven't seemed to make a bit of difference to the "real" Ratt. They've announced tour dates:

The newly reunited RATT, featuring three members of the band's classic lineup — singer Stephen Pearcy, bassist Juan Croucier and guitarist Warren DeMartini — has scheduled the following tour dates:

Apr. 26 - The Paramount - Huntington, NY
Apr. 27 - Theatre of Living Arts - Philadelphia, PA
Apr. 28 - The Sherman Theater - Stroudsburg, PA
Apr. 29 - M3 Rock Festival - Columbia, MD
May 28 - Rocklahoma - Pryor, OK
Jun. 01 - Limelight - Peoria, IL
Jun. 02 - Concord Music Hall - Chicago, IL
Jun. 03 - Rockfest - Kansas City, KS
Jul. 07 - Uncle Sam Jam - Woodhaven, MI
Jul. 12 - Rock Fest - Cadott, WI

Pearcy, Croucier and DeMartini played their first official show as the reunited RATT on February 11 at Treasure Island in Welch, Minnesota. They were joined on stage by former QUIET RIOT guitarist Carlos Cavazo, who played on RATT's last studio album, 2010's "Infestation", and drummer Jimmy DeGrasso, who previously played with Y&T, WHITE LION and MEGADETH, among others.

I really enjoyed Infestation. Hopefully they can do something similar.

Wish I could see them again after M3 but I'm going to see Mr. Big the same night as their Chicago date. Too many shows!

Here's Blotzer's latest social media brain fart announcing the addition of Seann Nichols to his dog and pony show. There's already some gigs scheduled for 2017 too.

At this point you almost have to admire BB's single minded, non f*ck giving attitude. Laughing very hard

Quote :

Hey Rattle’heads:
I see that an afternoon at a beach bar has taken on a life of its own out there regarding who is rumored to be in the front man spot in RATT.
My wife and I were attending a friend’s party in a small bar in Carlsbad, (down by San Diego) on Sunday, and hanging with some friends - jamming a few tunes on March 5th.
In July, when we were on the very successful Ratt tour of 2016, and we had a few dropouts, I moved swiftly to a great array of awesome friends and great players - we never skipped a beat. Not a day or a show fell.
When the other guys dropped, I asked our then singer, "are you going too?", because the road might not be as easy as everyone thought it might be. I was apprised by a great buddy of mine that he knew of a ripping lead singer.
I told our then singer about him out of sheer honesty.
And he replied to me as he did at every single show "no, you know how much I appreciate being in this, I'm in for THE LONG HAUL." The last time I spoke to him was December 16th, Kentucky show.
GREAT!
We continued thru the year with 35 more shows, give or take.
This other lead singer guy sent me his voice singing over our Ratt songs with Pearcy's voice pulled out and him singing in place. Well, fking Hell, I was quite astonished to be honest.
I stuck it out with the other singer, my word is real. But he knew there was someone in the wings.
And the guy I met over the phone in July, ended up with our fellow touring band guys in Quiet RIOT. Cool, way to go, I thought (also not knowing why our ex-band mate Mr J.Pearl was gone from QR).
But, the music business is an incestuous small world. So, there you go. There is still a war waging but I'm not going to get into those specifics.
I will, though, give you a little taste of what I was sent on the road in July 2016. I wish I had future vision then.
Check this out.
Ty.
RATT along with Seann Nicols at the helm = Cya in FT YATES ON THE 18TH.
RATT’N Roll

I thought Rattleheads were MegaDeth fans? And are they both using the Ratt name? The video makes it seem like they are.

Blotzer is pathetic. He was praising the last guy all the time, now he's claiming that he only kept him around because of "his word"... this guy just hypes everything that lands in his lap at the time.

Yep, they are... until the next court battle, anyway. Laughing very hard

Blotz appears hell-bent on continuing under the RATT name in spite of cease & desist orders from the Pearcy/DeMartini/Croucier camp.

Like I said, you almost have to admire how bull-headed he is.

Blotzer posted another lengthy brain fart on the Ratt FB page prior to their first gig with Seann "I Was In Quiet Riot For Five Minutes" Nichols this past weekend.

Quote :

Hey Ratt N Rollers:

Here we are , 1st show of '17 ,  here in FT YATES, N.D.
We flew in last night.
Pretty weird driving thru the pipeline front lines where everyone was doing the protest.  We had to be escorted.  

So, show day. Band is "rippingly" prepared as usual.   Seann Nicols will blow your minds. Everyone knows, my intention out here is to make everything album quality, and a real show,  not just phoning it in like the others.

I want to share something if you please.
A lot of you know I've been out here with RATT after the old "OG'S" Stayed off the road for 6 years. No one talked to no one.

After they saw how big we blew up,  it obviously shook the denture creme off and we're in a war that should have been over, due the fact a conning to the court went down.  

It's still unresolved.
WBS Inc. My corporation, STILL OWNS THE NAME.  
I'm going into detail here only because this show was served by the three blind bland mice a Cease and Desist. Anyone can send one of those to anybody.

We then find out the Juan Hector Crucifer has been personally, FRANTICALLY CALLING THE VENUE, THE GAMING COMMISSION,   THE STAGE MANAGERS MOM,  you get the point.

Trying to stop something he, they cannot.  The main thing they are and have been trying to pull over everyone's eyes is, they won.

Reality,  we are still in litigation.
Back in court with resounding new evidence showing the lies and horseshit tactics they used in court to sway the judge. Still can't understand why he allowed some of the 1 day old declarations that are easily proved incorrect and blatant lies.

So here we are , selling out 3,000 tonight.  
We're going to stream it live. So look for more on that today.

Firehouse on at 7.
RATT closing at 8:35 central.
Come hear RATT the way you want to hear her sound,  
Like you grew up hearing, not froggy the blender cats.
Yes, it's very personal to me. But, I'm real.
BB

PS.  There is no court injunction to preclude us from playing.  It isn't over folks!

Too Long/Didn't Read version:
"Seann Nichols good. Blotz like Sean. Juan Croucier dick. Blotz no like. Me no give up fight. Blotz RATT now."

Good lord. The parallels between this and the Queensryche battle are quite amazing. They need to both put out albums and let the total sales decide this one as well. Laughing

The grammar in your TLDR version may actually be better than Blotzer's original post.

Is Seann Nicols still attached to Blotz's band of misfits? I read he's singing with some other group now...

I was just wondering what was up with this soap opera. Blotz is maintaining radio silence, he hasn't posted any hilarious brain-fart ramblings on the Ratt Facebook page in more than a month.

Something must've gone down in the Ratt vs Blotzer saga this week... the Ratt Facebook page, which until recently had been a repository of Blotz's drunken brain farts, now bears this message:

"Welcome back to the Official RATT Facebook Page. It's been too long! Time to Ratt N Roll! See you on the road soon!
- Stephen, Warren and Juan"

...they have also deleted any and all of the posts pertaining to Blotz-O-Ratt. So if you scroll down the page, you see a couple of posts made today... and then suddenly you're in 2014. Everything in between is gone. Haha.
