Round and round we go again. Just like years past, Stephen will keep creating new music for us fans while the rest of RATT be part time tour musicians.

This is exactly what I thought I would hear/read. No surprizes for me.
I'm just sorry that BB couldn't wait just a bit to release his book. I think it
made them go separate ways much quicker. It plain sucks, especially with ALL the positive
reviews and packed shows. I'll always continue to support Pearcy in whatever he
does...one of the only few musicians out there who remain true to themselves, and
not a major sell-out...

Listened to the interview, great interview by Pearcy, when that book came out it was so obvious the intention to get it out at the same time as the CD for better sales, the book is full of spelling mistakes and bad sentences, it was a bad idea, but it sounds like they will come out with another CD which I think will come out for next summer so they can tour next summer, it just sounds like they want everyone on the same page when they are on the road, Bobby did none of the meet and greets with the fans,why not?,did he want to get paid more to sign autographs? if they were to continue without Blotzer which I don't think will happen they should try and get Juan back, Carlos is a great addition and hopefully will stay in the band. This last year has been way too good for them to just walk away. Hopefully we will all RATT N ROLL real soon.

My advice to Bobby would be - if you're THAT miserable with your situation -- then leave. Go get a gig with some other band (Dream Theater??) or something where you can be happy. But, don't bring down the whole Ratt thing. That would suck, man.

Bobby and Warren : or whomever is calling the shots these days.....do the right thing. Suck it up and bring this band back together (for real)...enough of the crapola already. Infestation proves the magic is still there, now get it done!!

They have such a good thing going with Infestation and they had to stop totally sucks, I was thinking Fred Coury would be a good fit for a replacement drummer.

When you write your autobiography and still come off sounding like a dick; guess what Bobby, You're a Dick! Great drummer, co-wrote 2 great songs on Infestation, but way too big of an ego. When it comes to music and the artist vs. businessman comparison; the artist should win every time.

Re-read what pearcy has said. yeah....he has his disagreements with Bob. BUT.....The driving issue to stop now seems to be the business structure of the band. In my "fans perspective" opinion, SEP is attempting to leverage the critical and fan acclaim for the Infestation album to gain or regain control of "his band"...and "his legacy".

Warren, Steve, Bob - . Thanks for all the music through the years guys....you had a pretty good run.

SEP wants control of the band, always has always will bottom line! RATT is a done deal move on.......u can take a million dollar painting and cut it up and it's worthless!

don't know, seems the same old story that repeat in the same way of 99. Don't really know if SEP is totally honest in this. It's a shame that they stop right now just before the release of Eatmeupalive single.!

You people downing Stepehn are so wrong. It was Babby who had the agenda this time. The band has NEVER put out an album with out Stephen, there is no RATT without him and Warren.Bobby is the piece of crap as has been for a LONG time. He should move on he can be replaced.
