Inside sources have tipped Metal Sludge off that Ratt drummer Bobby Blotzer was recently arrested for a DUI. The following public records show Blotz was indeed arrested: Pic 1, Pic 2.
The rumor is as follows: there was an arrest over Memorial Day weekend at Lake Havasu in Arizona and Bob was at the "wheel" of a boat. Turns out, that this arrest information shows exactly that.
A Ratt press release
came out less than 48 hours ago that officially cancelled their European tour. The press release states that Ratt
have been forced to cancel all of their European shows for this summer, including a slot at Download
, as frontman Stephen Pearcy
needs to undergo a hernia operation.
The band, who released the excellent Infestation earlier this year, were due to play in London and in Wolverhampton next week and were due to play on the main stage of the Download Festival on Sunday.
