In a recent interview with Metal Sludge RATT frontman, Stephen Pearcy will film a virtual concert with his solo band on February 26 & February 27, to be released via a streaming platform at a later date. The event will reportedly be shot at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California and could feature a special guest appearance on "a few tunes" by former RATT drummer Bobby Blotzer.
On Thursday night (February 25), Stephen shared the Metal Sludge article about a possible Pearcy-Blotzer reunion on his Instagram, and he included the following message: "Hmmm, we'll have to wait and see".
"I do talk to Bobby," Pearcy told "Trunk Nation". "Bobby and I are — it's love-hate, brother kind of a gig. We keep in touch and talk about positive things. He still has interest, so there are some things to talk about. And Warren is the same."
"Look, life goes on," he explained. "Life's short. Hate's not a good thing. There's communication. But I can't say anything."
During the same chat, Pearcy said that he was open to the idea of making a new RATT album with all the surviving members of the band's classic lineup.
"I wouldn't wanna put a RATT record out there without the original guys," he said. "I mean, it just wouldn't make sense. We've tried it.
"Look, I accepted it a long time ago when Robbin [Crosby, late RATT guitarist] left the band, we lost a big element of direction. He was my right-hand man creating this monster. And I knew it — I knew once he was out, we would be going through motions. It's all cool, and it's great, but how many replacements can you have in a band and still consider it legit? So if we're gonna have something on plastic, so to speak, forever, I'd rather have the original band do a record and just not do a RATT record until that day comes — if it ever happens."
"Look, we're not the most dysfunctional band on the planet," he said. "I've said it before, there are bands much more dysfunctional — MÖTLEY [CRÜE], GN'R [GUNS N' ROSES], you name 'em — but the smart ones make an effort to take care of business. MÖTLEY — I don't know if they even talk to each other, but they're getting the business done. And that's where I'm at. What are you — punishing somebody? You're getting back at somebody? You're holding a grudge, vendetta… It's all bullshit. We're all gonna die anyway. Go figure it out."
