Facebook — Stephen Pearcy has recently posted a warning to the Ratt N’ Roll fan base. The founding father of the band Ratt took to his official Facebook to let fans know not to be ‘mislead’ by photos promoting (Bobby) ‘Blotzer shows’. Bobby Blotzer’s ‘new’ Ratt line-up includes a trio of no-name cover band players from Las Vegas.
The line-up has some disgruntled fans referring to the band as #FakeRatt on social media.
Blotzer (who seems to be steering the ship) has shuffled out the lone known replacement player in bassist Scott Griffin (Ex L.A Guns). Griffin was let go in exchange for former Ratt member Robbie Crane (Black Star Riders).
Crane who previously spent 15 years in Ratt quit in March 2012 but has been back playing shows with the group since April 1st of this year.
Pearcy has distanced himself from his former bandmate (Bobby Blotzer) in recent years.
And since the new and virtually unknown Ratt line-up has hit the road, other members of the band (Warren DeMartini and Juan Croucier) have found themselves entangled in lawsuits with Blotzer.
Pearcy has stayed busy performing live as a solo artist for years inbetween his time fronting the band he founded.
Added to the posting which we have screen captured below, the singer tells fans; ‘Other news De Martini and Pearcy writing new music’.
Pearcy also made sure to let fans know to keep an eye for shows listed at his official website at Stephen-pearcy.com
