Ratt’s Bobby Blotzer Pens His Own Autobiography

The latest in a recent spate of drummer’s autobiographies, Ratt’s drummer Bobby Blotzer is poised to release his tell-all, Tales Of A Ratt – Things You Shouldn’t Know. But if that controversial title suggests yet another slab of gritty Hollywood gossip, you might want to think twice. Unlike many of the other books that dwell on the seedier side of the rock-and-roll lifestyle, Blotzer’s celebrates a unique period in ’80s heavy metal history, with commentary about surviving the quick rise, gradual fall, and recent reemergence of a seminal L.A. rock band. Tales Of A Ratt – Things You Shouldn’t Know will hit bookstores on April 20, the same date as the release of the band’s all-new CD, Infestation, it’s first release in 11 years.
