Bobby Blotzer to have surgery and continue with his Ratt version despite loss of singer Josh Alan
Bad news for drummer Bobby Blotzer as he is scheduled to have surgery to apparently correct part of his lumbar spine that has collapsed. The drummer also provided a quick update on when people can expect to see his version of Ratt after his surgery and only scheduled show at the Prairie Knights Casino & Resort in Fort Yates, North Dakota, USA on March 18, 2017.
Blotzer did not advise who will be the singer for his version of Ratt on March 18th.
The following message was posted on the Facebook page for Blotzer‘s version of Ratt yesterday:
“Hey all :
I got this MRI last week.
Having some bad shite coming to the roads end on my back.
Alot of people that have been to shows last year, and 2013 Tours, have noticed or folks I’ve talked to, have noticed me having some issues moving about.
Not so much in performance mode, too much adrenaline going on at that time, but just generally.
I’ve been getting epidural spine injections for 6 years.
Then went into “sound frequency” nerve burns.
That’s fun I can tell ya.
None are working. Now it’s surgery time. If you see in the picture above, that’s me ol spine. Lumbar # 5 as you can see is collapsed. Number one is next
So, after the next show on 3/18th@ Ft Yates N.D , I’M IN TWO DAYS LATER.
I’ll spare you the details of how they do this, it’s pretty fked up.
Same as I did basicly in 2013 when I fused C -6-7 , cervical.
2 months. So as we mop up this litigation, I’ll be back out with Ratt , around middle late June.
