Bobby Blotzer's Ratt Loses Second Member In A Week


(Classic Rock) Bobby Blotzer's Ratt bassist Robbie Crane has announced he's leaving the band. His departure follows guitarist Nicholas 'Blaze' Baum, whose exit was announced yesterday in a Facebook post written by Blotzer which appears to have been removed.

Crane hints that "events of the past few weeks" were partially to blame for his resignation - though he doesn't go into further detail. He says: "As of today, I have resigned my position as the bass player of Bobby Blotzer's band Ratt. While the events of the past few weeks did play a small role in my decision, I feel like it's time for me move on and focus on the positive things in my life.

"I wish Bobby the best in the future, and thank Warren, Stephen, Robin, and Juan for writing the great songs that afforded me the opportunity to live the dream. Thank you for understanding and supporting me in my decision."

Though Blotzer heaped praise on his current bandmates for their talent and integrity in keeping the Ratt legacy alive, he hinted there had been some issues within the band. Read more here.
