Ratt's Stephen Pearcy Took Different Book Path Than Blozter

(Classic Rock) Ratt frontman Stephen Pearcy learned how not to write a book through drummer Bobby Blotzer. The singer releases Sex, Drugs, Ratt & Roll: My Life In Rock on May 23 but he says he's been careful not to badmouth his bandmates after the backlash Blozter experienced from his 2010 title Tales Of A Ratt.

Pearcy tells Guitar International: "There was no reason to do that. Unfortunately, our drummer bad-rapped his own band in his book, not knowing the consequences.

"I didn't need to bash my guys, whether I'm in or out of the band. You never know what's going to happen. It's one thing to be an a**hole here and there it's just part of what goes down when you're in this career."

He reflects: "We're not the only band in history who were dysfunctional. It was just normal. It's just how we lived. Some of us had bigger vices than others. You eventually grow through it or grow out of it. Eventually and hopefully, you get your sh*t together and you grow up."

That's why he doesn't hold a grudge over Blotzer's book.
