Pete Holmes ends up playing with Ratt rather than Black ‘N Blue when both bands booked for same night
Drummer Pete Holmes ended up playing with Ratt at the Domination Festival in Mexico City, Mexico rather than with his long-time band Black ‘N Blue at the M3 Rock Festival in Columbia, Maryland, USA on May 4, 2019. Former BulletBoys and current Lies, Deceit & Treachery drummer Jimmy D’Anda ended up filling in for Holmes at the M3 Rock Festival.
Of note, Ratt had been announced to play the Domination Festival in Mexico at least since January 2019 while Black ‘N Blue along with Enuff Z’Nuff were added to Day One of the M3 Rock Festival when Heavens Edge elected to postpone in March 2019 all shows including their M3 Rock Festival appearance due to their bassist George “G.G.” Guidotti battling stage 4 lung cancer.
Holmes along with guitarists Jordan Ziff (Razer) and Chris Sanders (Britny Fox, Knight Fury) were revealed as the newest Ratt members along with lead vocalist Stephen Pearcy and bassist Juan Croucier back in July 2018.
Since 1981, Holmes has been a part of Black ‘N Blue and he is the only listed drummer in the band’s history as per Wikipedia.
