RATT ownership battle goes round and round as drummer “hijacks” band name

A few days ago, RATT drummer, Bobby Boltzer, won a legal battle securing the rights to continue on as RATT. Founding guitarist, Warren DeMartini says the band is being “hijacked!”

DeMartini has filed a lawsuit in Los Angles claiming that Boltzer is “trying to take over the band and pawn himself and a cast of subordinates off as the genuine article.” The complaint also seeks an injunction against Boltzer from touring his tribute band as the real RATT.

“In essence, Blotzer wants to hijack the name and tour under the name Ratt. Defendant Blozter intends to fool Ratt’s fans by touring with himself, a drummer, and a group of imposters calling themselves Ratt.”

This just. Got. Interesting!
