And he, Booby is the one who had an agenda putting out a book at the same time as the album. Ratt had a great chance to have a great comeback. Thanks as always to Bobby for fucking things up!!!


You seen any of Pearcy's solo gigs?? If so, you'd likely represent roughly 1/3 of the crowd. His solo career is going nowhere!!
Yea, Bobby had an agenda putting out the book the same time as the album. The same way Stephen had an agenda taking his solo band out the same time as the album....

Wasn't it Pearcy who quit the band in '92?? Wasn't it Pearcy who again quit in '00?? Both times leaving the band high & dry??
Yep, 'thanks as always to Bobby for fucking things UP!!!'

I think he means that Pearcy has the VOICE while what the hell can Blotzer do on a solo tour??!? Just sit back and play drums?? LMAO!

Or he could have some no name leaad singer sing who would be a lot worse than Pearcy. As I said in the concert thread 90% of a band is the voice whether you like it or not.

Look at what drummer Franki Banali said when Kevin Dubrow, singer of Quiet Riot died? He said the band is dead without him so don't even ask about forming QR again. See what I mean? I know QR has reformed with the blessing of Kevin's mom but it's NOT the same eventhough the new lead singer sounds better than I thought.

RATT is 90% Pearcy and DeMartinit and you guys know it! I want to see the original band back together just as much as anyone. Even with Croucier and Crosby if they could resurrect him! But Pearcy is the voice and if he has a new solo CD I'll buy and I'll also see him on tour.

At least it will be at a small venue so the meet and greets will be easy!

=cjcrash said:Well I haven't read too many Blotzer bashing interviews from the other members of Ratt lately? No member of a band is 100% safe from removal and that's a fact.

Only matters who has the majority of shares in the corporation that owns the name. It is a real disappointment to see this happening again. I think this is why Juan mya have made the demands he did a few years ago before he joined the "reunion."

What were Juan's demands??

I wonder if the King is rolling in his graave over this? They did call Crosby the "King" right? At 6'5" I can understand! BTW, I know Crosby wasn't buried so he can't be rolling over but you know what I mean.

What I'm saying is this guys blaming Bobby for "always fucking things UP.".....Well it was Pearcy that fucked things UP the first time by quitting the band. And it was Pearcy that fucked things UP the second time by quitting the band. And it was Pearcy that fucked things UP by attempting to sue his own band mates....

Upscope, I see what you're saying about Pearcy but the truth is none of us know EXACTLY why the hell they are fighting!! I mean was somebody banging the other guys' chick or something??

A long time RATT fan once saw RATT without Pearcy and he said it just wasn't the same. He said no one has the squeal in his voice like Pearcy does and it's PERFECT for RATT songs!

He's so right! I obviously much prefer they patch things up and go as RATT but I won't miss a chance to see Pearcy if he goes solo. I don't want it to end up like Quiet Riot where you never get to see the AT ALL because of the lead singer's death!

Life is never guaranteed so you never know when it could be your last chance to see him. At least we won't have to worry about big crowds!

Upscope, I saw Stephen solo in Delaware in October. It was a small club, but he put on a GREAT show. About 10-15 minutes after he got off the stage, he came back out to sign stuff and talk to us. He stood behind the bar and signed anything and everything that was put in front of him. He talked to us and answered questions. Even took a pic with me in the middle of all that because my friend was tired and we needed to leave. SO nice of him! He also came out of the RATT bus after the Out of the Cellar concert in PA to sign autographs too. He signed my cassette (yes, cassette) of OOTC and we talked for a minute or two. I don't know anything about Bobby or the paid meet & greets, but Stephen's always been nice and appreciative of the fans at the shows I've been at! (BTW, if Stephen reads this ... THANKS!)

Hey Lorr!!

Personally, I have no problems w/ Pearcy as far as fan friendliness goes. I have meet him on a few occasions & he has been super cool w/ me each time. However, I have heard stories from friends & others that go both ways. From personal experience though I have to admit I think he is a pretty rad dude.

Actually having an encounter w/ him is pretty hit & miss though. He's tough to pin down. Since the '07 re-union I've been fortunate enough to find a way into Ratt aftershows on several occasions. With the exception of my trip to Japan Pearcy has been a no show each & every time.
Multiple times I've waited patiently after his solo shows for a chance to meet or chat. Each time he manages to keep himself isolated or secluded from interaction from the common folk until he eventually disappears. It's almost as if he's teasing or confused w/ the difference between 1985 & 2011??

I always have & always will support & stand UP for Ratt & it's members....past, present & future. When it comes right down to it though I'm a realist. I call it the way I see it.
I idolized Stephen Pearcy in 1984 & I still idolize him today but IMO he is coming off as a hypocrite in this latest Ratt ordeal w/ Bobby.

Pearcy is going to want to play in front of more than 30 to 100 people again so eventually you would think they'll get back together. I mean they always get back together again you know?

Maybe they just needed a break from each other after recording and touring after Infestation?

In 2012 they can have the 2012 RATT end of the world tour!! LMAO!
