Ratt drummer plans solo album

Busy year ahead for Bobby Blotzer

Bobby Blotzer is planning to work on a solo record later this year.

The Ratt drummer told Rhythm that he’ll concentrate on the project after the US hair metallers finish touring their new album, Infestation.

He said: “At the end of this tour I’m going to do a solo record where I play everything. I write and record all of the instruments on my solo project.

“On my last solo album I had John Corbai (ex Ratt guitarist/Mötley Crüe frontman) come in and sing on it. I love John’s voice and I like working with John.”

Bobby also suggested that he’d like to bring his solo band over to Europe for some dates.

“I’d come out from behind the kit and play some rhythm guitar and maybe bass. I’d use my son to play drums. He’s a great drummer and he techs for me when I’m on tour.”
