RATT Drummer Bobby Blotzer To Miss Upcoming Shows Following Neck Surgery
January 21, 2014, a year ago
RATT drummer Bobby Blotzer has checked in with the following update:
"Hi all Ratt N Rollers, I have a first for you. As for these next three shows Ratt have this week, I will not be driving the bus behind the drums. My neck surgery from Oct. 25th is not ready as I found out at one rehearsal attempt. I just can't risk the possibility of further damage. I've never once in my life missed a show so I'm tripping to say the least. I was hoping to give you a surprise as to who would be playing in my place, but I can't deliver that surprise as it's not happening. So, see ya on the monster cruise in a couple months. Have fun!"
Stay tuned for updates.
