Definitely interested in the RATT show w/o the guitar dropouts.

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Does the Ratt video that’s up at JTT have audio dropouts? I downloaded it, but haven’t had time to watch it.

Ratt to Perform With Bassist Juan Croucier on May 12
Tue, 08 May 2012 10:03:26

Ratt, legends of the Los Angeles hard rock scene, will perform at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland on May 12. What’s special about this particular gig is that bassist Juan Croucier will return to the fold and perform with the band, his first time doing so since 1991. Ratt ‘n’ roll, baby! A prodigal son from the rhythm section returns.

Guitarist Warren DeMartini said, “I happened to see Juan after a signing at Charvel Guitars last January at NAMM. This guy walks up with Ratt’s Out of the Cellar LP and it had every band member’s autograph except his and mine. Juan said in disbelief, ‘Do you know what the odds are of this happening in a crowd of 100,000 people? Another couple minutes and this wouldn’t be possible!’ I think that says it all. Rehearsing with Juan today was like going back in time to our last performance together in Ratt at Irvine Meadows two decades ago – feels like it was yesterday.”

Frontman Stephen Pearcy added, “After all these years, regrouping with the original band members is like riding a bike, you never forget. The first day in rehearsal was like years ago. Amazing to say the least.”

Guitarist Carlos Cavazo commented, “I’m sure this could create yet another successful page in the band’s history.”

Drummer Bobby Blotzer said, “Juan and I go way back, playing in bands together since age 16. Having him back in fold with us for the M3 festival after being gone so many years is intriguing. We’ve been rehearsing for several weeks and it sounds like Ratt ‘n’ Roll.”

Croucier himself declared, “It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 20 years since we last played together. I’m personally looking forward to reconnecting with Ratt fans worldwide and I’m hopeful this will last far into the future.”

Thanks for posting this article. I was just looking at the video and thought it looked like Juan. Great to see him back in the band!

Yes…..Warren’s guitar is dropping out in the first part of the set.

Must of had a wireless problem, got pretty bad in Wanted Man.

The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

All the M3 shows have now been posted at JTT…some may resurface as Bluerays or AVCHD DVD9′s (1080i HD) in the near future….so much to do, so little time.
