Ratt drummer Bobby Blotzer has taken to Facebook with a lengthy post to explain his side of the very public battle between him and his former bandmates. Blotzer continues to insist that his former bandmates have no legal right to reunite under the Ratt name without him.
Blotzer currently owns the name and states that since handing down the summary judgment that reportedly led some to believe he’d lost the case, the court has upheld Blotzer’s argument that the current Ratt corporation is legally valid, freeing him to book dates with his own version of the group. “We win, we’re back out on tour soon,” he wrote. “We have six dates booked so far.”
“We win, we’re back out on tour soon,” he wrote. “We have six dates booked so far.”
There currently is another hearing scheduled for later in the month.
“For five years I tried to rally these guys together, and NOW they’re good to go on tour? … I simply wanted to tour,” he wrote. “They didn’t. They didn’t speak to each other till they saw the huge success we had this past year. We did 70 or so shows, and grossed more money on this tour than any tour Ratt has done in 20 years past. I tried to keep the originals and the rest together. This isn’t my undoing.”
