RATT Drummer To Guest On 'The Jimmy Star Show'

Drummer Bobby Blotzer of Californian rockers RATT will be a featured guest on "The Jimmy Star Show" radio show on Wednesday, November 3 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. ET.

To hear Blotzer live on "The Jimmy Star Show", tune in to W4CY Radio online at www.w4cy.com from anywhere in the world.

"The Jimmy Star Show" is radio's new "hit" show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited, fast-paced two-hour conversational format.

RATT vocalist Stephen Pearcy revealed in a recent interview that the band is currently on a break while he and the other members of the group pursue other projects. "We finished a great show in Japan — this huge gig [at the Loud Park festival] with HALFORD and HELLYEAH and a bunch of other bands — and that was great," he said. "So I think we're gonna be on a hiatus for awhile and everybody'll do their own thing and we'll take it from there."

"Infestation", the first studio record in 11 years from RATT, sold around 14,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 30 on the Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on April 20 via Loud & Proud.

"Infestation" was produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette (CHEVELLE, ALTER BRIDGE) at his Virginia studio, marking the first time the band has recorded outside of Los Angeles. The album is full of attitude and of reflection, cycling through a range of emotions. There are party anthems that RATT are known for alongside more contemplative, thoughtful tunes.
