Bobby Blotzer's autobiography, "Tales Of A Ratt - Things You Shouldn't Know", was released on April 20, the same day that the band's new CD, "Infestation", was made available. "Tales Of A Ratt" traces the history of Blotzer's personal journey of becoming an '80s rock legend while taking the reader through a conversational blow-by-blow of what it was like to manage fame, fortune, and the realities of an era's end and rebirth. Packed with personal friends who make up nearly all the famous bands of the '80s, this book is the backstage story that all fans of '80s rock have always longed to hear, but have never heard. "Tales Of A Ratt" is a diversion from the depressing heroin laced near death books that dare to paint a positive era of rock and roll as anything but exhilaratingly unique. The positive memories that make up the emotional portfolio of nearly all '80s fans is kept alive as Bobby progresses step by step through the lives of not only his band RATT, but the rise of so many others that have become household names. "Tales Of A Ratt" focuses on the fans that experienced the '80s first hand, and the resurgence of '80s rock in the record industry today. As new fans look for books to trace the history of '80s rock and as loyal fans of '80s legends look to complete their collections of their rock heroes, "Tales Of A Ratt" delivers the untold stories of how they hung out, how they partied, and how they made it through the '90s to emerge a top billing genre in the 21st century.
