Is former Quiet Riot singer Seann Nicols joining Bobby Blotzer’s version of Ratt?
Metal Sludge has reported from an unnamed source that former Quiet Riot singer Seann Nicols will be joining drummer Bobby Blotzer‘s version of Ratt.
This makes some sense since Blotzer needs to find a lead vocalist to front his version of Ratt during its currently last scheduled gig at the Prairie Knights Casino & Resort in Fort Yates, North Dakota, USA on March 18, 2017.
Despite handling lead vocals on Quiet Riot‘s upcoming studio album Road Rage, which is scheduled for release via Frontiers Music Srl on April 21, 2017, and doing five gigs with the band, Quiet Riot replaced Nicols with American Idol finalist James Durbin. Quiet Riot via Durbin have announced that they do not plan on playing any songs from the forthcoming studio album Road Rage in a live setting.
Having Nicols front Blotzer‘s version of Ratt at least gives the band a somewhat experienced frontman given that Nicols has already fronted Adler’s Appetite as well as Quiet Riot, the latter for an albeit limited time period.
