Ratt Stars In Legal Battle Over Use Of Band Name: Ratt News

On Tuesday Ratt Stars In Legal Battle Over Use Of Band Name was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Ratt guitarist Warren DeMartini has launched legal action against drummer Bobby Blozter over use of the band name. DeMartini has alleged Blotzer has taken control of the title while they both own half of it, and wants him to stop "trying to take over the band."

The drummer last month changed his new outfit's title from Bobby Blotzer's Ratt Experience to simply Ratt. The lineup includes singer Josh Alan, guitarists Blaze and Doc Ellis, and bassist Scotty Griffin.

DeMartini later reported that the pair discussed the plans, and the guitarist asked him not to use their band name, explaining: "I said I had no problem with him playing songs he recorded with Ratt, but I didn't agree to him using the name in the title."

Now DeMartini says in his lawsuit: "In essence, Blotzer wants to hijack the name. Blotzer intends to fool Ratt's fans by touring with himself and a group of imposters calling themselves Ratt." Read more - here.
