I'll miss seeing you in Ratt Robbie. Good luck with all your future endeavors.

Wise decision. He's too smart for these guys anyhow.....Obviously tired of the childish leadership in Ratt.

BOL Robbie~

Hey "Upscope"....as much as I hate to admit it, you are right. These guys need to get over themselves. I've seen the drama first hand and I wouldn't stay either.

Oh Bummer! Where did y'all see this? I met Robbie a few times and he was always real cool and like to talk with the fans. A drag to see him go but best of luck to you Robbie!

It's strange how Stephen hasn't even mention this on his twitter. Good luck to Robbie but he was never really a favorite and franky neither was Juan.

RATT to me has always been Pearcy, DeMartini, and Crosby RIP. Blotzer has caused a lot of trouble so I wouldn't care if he left either.

But the big question is who will the new RATT bassist be? I still think Juan is too out of shape to join RATT again. On metalsludge someone said he looks like a portly Brazilian mango farmer. LMAO!

Why not get Rudy Sarzo from Quiet Riot?

I found out over Facebook. Robbie is a FB friend of mine. I'm not sure what they are going to do about M3? They better figure out something pretty soon. Heck...I'm not a bass player but I could easily fill in today if needed.

my two cents...

Obviously, a reunion with Juan would be the ultimate scenario for the die hard RATT fans...and most likely their best opportunity to both ensure a larger legacy, as well as truly, truly maximize the band's financial potential.

Short of that (IMHO), Rudy Sarzo would be a cool choice....particularly with Carlos being in the band as well. Actually, I believe the notion of Rudy being in the band has come up before....like in the mid-90s when Juan declined on the initial reformation. Robbie was seemingly intended as a placeholder until WBS RATT could get re-established. ...and that has taken longer than anticipated :-) ...

The industry would definitely show the band some respect for adding a person of Rudy's stature/reputation in the business. However, I am not sure Rudy's personality really works. He seems to be outspoken.

I saw that someone suggested Corabi. that is an interesting choice, and would be cool to select a RATT veteran. RATT does need a solid bassist though to lay down the groove. ...sooo....he would need to be good. Plus, I think he likes working 9-5 in Nashville.

SeattleRATT, how do you figure having Juan back in the band would make much difference financially? If this were 1992, 1995, or even 1999 I could see it but not now.

Eventhough we all know RATT is better than Motley and has a better discography they can't get on Larry King Live or whatever when they get back together. And they can never have a complete re-union without the King Crosby.

It would be kinda cool to see Juan back in the band IF he was in shape but Juan burned some bridges a long time ago.

It would be great to see Juan burying the hatchet and rejoining the band, but I don't think it's gonna happen. Rudy will eb acool option too but I don't think he would get along that well with Stephen or Bobby. What about Jeff Pilson? ( He also do great back vocals)

Should be very interesting how it all plays out especially with the M3 Festival in 5 weeks! I just can't believe Pearcy still hasn't even mention Robbie leaving on Twitter!

Pilson is no longer with Dokken? What's he doing now?

hello im new to the board long time fan, Im kinda hoping Juan comes back to the back so they can get it out of their systems while they are still young enough to play.

Rudy would be a nice choice too I heard he just quit BOC so who knows??
