Blotzer Says His New Ratt Singer Blows Pearcy 'Out Of The Water'


(Classic Rock) Bobby Blotzer says the singer for his revamped Ratt lineup blows former vocalist Stephen Pearcy "out of the water." The drummer heaps praise on his current bandmates, including singer Josh Alan, for their talent, "integrity" and willingness to "go the extra distance" for their stage shows - but he insists he means no disrespect to former Ratt members, including bassist Juan Croucier and guitarist Warren DeMartini.

He tells ClassX Radio: "These guys are focused on the replication and integrity of Ratt music.That's why everybody's been hired. It's been uncanny. Especially for the age of some of these guys.

"The lead guitar player, he just turned 22 about a half-year ago or something, and he's amazing. He cops Warren's stuff amazingly. The singer just blows Stephen Pearcy out of the water at this day and age - and frankly, is even better than when we started out.

"I don't want to insult anybody in the old-school Ratt camp - I call it the class of 84 - but these guys were our own worst enemies. They're on a five-year strike thing that was going on between Juan Croucier, who came back in after 20 years gone, and got Stephen riled up." Read more here.
