Ratt has seen a few breakups and members have come and gone, some of them more than once; nonetheless, Bobby has held his position since 1982 even when it seemed there was no hope left for the band at all.
Bobby’s resolve stands out to me as one of his most beautiful qualities. He has spent over half his life in Ratt and loves what he does. At one point there was a legal issue concerning the band, where Bobby triumphed in court, which completely changed the dynamics of Ratt. Personally, I feel Blotzer was justified in his actions. If I were to invest my time and effort into a business with colleagues or friends, then decades later those people had a change of heart and I was at risk of losing my life’s work I would fight for it too. Those who have negative sentiments toward Bobby for his decision should look at things from the human perspective instead of the publicity one. Regardless of who thinks what, Bobby is the one still rocking!
This summer Blotzer will embark on his Ratt tour with a killer lineup of musicians in his reformed band.
