Stephen Pearcy states there is no possible reconciliation with Bobby Blotzer

Stephen Pearcy was interviewed by All That Shreds and asked about the legal disputes between all parties involved with Ratt as well as whether there could be any kind of reconciliation between him and drummer Bobby Blotzer.

Pearcy‘s answer to the latter question was succinct as he is reported answering:


OK. No all I know is there is Warren [DeMartini] and myself and Juan [Croucier] and Carlos [Cavazo] is back in the game and we’ll figure out who’s on fifth when we get there.”

In terms of whether the legal stuff done is between all parties involved with Ratt, Pearcy stated: “Yes the dust has settled pretty much and it’s getting cemented and yes the thing with Ratt is look, we have the ability to say look we don’t want to do anything for a year or two or three it’s just pen’s right, so that’s what happens. As we were doing that Warren didn’t want to go out there without all of us ‘the original’ and someone just decided well I’m going out there and I’m going to do my own thing and I’m going to call it this. Well, unfortunately, that was a bad move not only for our fans but for business and the true integrity of the entity. So hence this person created all these things going down. I don’t want to mention names or bad rap or nothing because justice is peace and things are done and taken care of and like I say the dust has pretty much settled and we’re going out and doing our thing. Ratt’s first show is February 11th and then we headline M3 you know there’s a lot going on there but it’s got to be done right.

There’s a lot of this mess created but one thing you can’t do especially a person who didn’t write music or anything is try to change a course of history and its four member’s you know and that was the worst thing I thought possible you know we’re not one’s to get out there and chit chat for the sake of doing it. It’s not like the Hitler approach where you tell the people the same thing enough they’ll believe it. Our audience isn’t that stupid. They’re very smart they’ve been around for thirty years you know. You can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of them hence things took care of themselves pretty much and so we’re moving ahead. A lot more to go down and like I said Warren and I have already started dabbling and writing and we’ll see what happens. We’d like to get something out sometime this year but we’ve still got a lot to accomplish and take it slow and easy and make sure it’s done right time and make sure there’s no if and’s or buts and hopefully, we can have another few years out there for everybody.”
