Ratt Meeting impossible? The group hits a snag after receiving a lucrative deal

Ratt was blessed with a reunion of the most anticipated lineup, but the band would seemingly see it as something impossible – for now.

Of the glam metal bands in the industry, Ratt is apparently one that has seen a lot of band members come and go. Since their debut in the 1970s, they have managed to release songs that agitate the group’s identity despite having different bandmates from time to time.

Currently, Ratt is made up of Stephen Pearcy, Juan Croucier, Pete Holmes, Jordan Ziff and Frankie Lindia. Still, fans want to see the classic band perform again at a reunion.

Will Ratt have a reunion?

Ratt singer Pearcy recently appeared on the April 27 episode of “Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk” from SiriusXM. He was again asked about the progress of reuniting the group’s classic formation.

According to Pearcy, they received a lucrative deal to push their reunion. However, they could not have reached a mutual agreement.

“I mean, I won’t make another RATT record unless it’s all of us. There’s no reason; you won’t get the RATT sound. We got close. And people, I think , pissed me off a bit for saying that about [2010’s] ‘Infestation’ [album], [that] I really didn’t think we were making a home run. Warren [DeMartini, guitar] and I basically managed this disk, but [Carlos] Cavazo [guitar] been [also] involved”, he explained, quoted by Talkative mouth.

For what it’s worth, Pearcy and Croucier are part of the newer lineup. However, their guitarist Warren DeMartini and drummer Bobby Blotzer are absent, while Robbin Crosby died in 2002.

Pearcy noted that they had an opportunity in the deal. However, he still could not explain why they are still unable to reach an agreement.

Regardless of what the future holds for Ratt, the singer would go on with or without the reunion.

Elsewhere in the interview, he called out people who don’t support them because the band lost its original members. According to Pearcy, he became disillusioned with those who think this way.

“So I just went out for a bit. And, hey, it’s nobody’s fault but the way things went. A tour didn’t happen [because of] COVID… and I went, ‘I don’t have time for this, to start over, to rehash or do anything,'” he said, as quoted by Ultimate classic rock and culture.

Ultimately, he described the band’s lineup change as a bit “convoluted” but still respects the decisions of the former members.
