Singer Joshua Alan has quit Bobby Blotzer’s version of RATT, explaining that he will be working and focusing on his original music this year.
Blotzer has spent the last year and a half battling the other three members of RATT’s classic lineup over the rights to the band’s name. At the same time, he has been hitting the road with his version of RATT, which, in addition to Alan, has most recently included guitarists Mitch Perry (TALAS, HEAVEN, STEELER, MSG, LITA FORD) and Stacey Blades (L.A. GUNS) and bassist Brad Lang (Y&T).
Earlier today (Wednesday, February 15), Alan released the following statement via his Facebook page: “As some of you may already know, I have resigned from my position with Bobby Blotzer/RATT as of January 23rd.
“I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your love and support along the way! I would not have made it through this without you! I will be working and focusing on my original music this year”.
