Hollywood Rumor Mill — Metal Sludge have multiple industry sources telling us that guitarist Warren DeMartini has been let go from the band Ratt.

A source first tipped off Metal Sludge 5 days ago on March 16th writing: “A certain guitar player, has been tossed from a certain rodent band.”

A second source, a known industry musician contacted Metal Sludge and inquired about the rumor earlier this week.

Metal Sludge has inquired to several parties close to the band today and received the following.

A third source, also a known industry musician revealed that the band has had multiple changes in its business dealings in recent months. Including a change in management, and their longtime booking agency as well.

A fourth source closest to the bands innermost workings confirmed our inquiry, but wants to remain anonymous stating; “It’s true, Warren is gone.

Metal Sludge has reached out to numerous contacts – to which all have confirmed there are “serious issues” between the 3 key members – DeMartini, Stephen Pearcy (vocals) and Juan Croucier (bass).

The band also includes Carlos Cavazo (rythym guitar) and Jimmy DeGrasso (drums).

Metal Sludge is trying to verify these claims, and confirm if DeMartini is in, or out of the band.

Direct messages to both Pearcy and Croucier have went unanswered as of this posting.

Stay tuned for more as we await official statements from the band Ratt.

Good points, I really enjoyed Infestation and was holding out hope for one more album before they called it quits or further splintered apart like this

Yep, I agree with the above. I genuinely had no idea in the world they were still a band. This news is the equivalent of saying something like CC Deville is out of Poison. The first question from the majority of people is going to be, "Oh, are Poison still together?" 

Who really gives a shit what happens in completely inactive bands? It's entirely inconsequential.

Haha!  Indeed Poison is touring this year and did so last year.  In fact, outside of a couple years off they have been touring the better part of the last two decades.

Yep, exactly. And Ratt have probably been touring for 18 years since their last album too, but who cares or notices this aside from the handful of American residents who get to see these shows? Cinderella, anyone? 

It terms of recording artists, these bands are completely insignificant and changing band members will only affect the people who get to see them live each year... a handful of Americans.

Fair enough.

It's only because these bands are considered "hair band OG's"

I think many of these bands are only still 'around' so they can get to a point where they can have a 40th anniversary or whatever.

There's no real reason otherwise. Music (if it's released) is sub par and uninteresting.

Great idea, Ratt. Fire the one guy left in the damn band with talent. Pffft.

In the next installment of "As the Ratt Turns," Metal Sludge is reporting that Carlos Cavazo is now out of Ratt as well.

For those of you who are keeping score, this leaves only one of the guys who played on Infestation (Pearcy) and Juan Croucier. 

It's starting to sound like Pearcy and/or Juan is trying to do the same thing Blotzer was doing - cutting out the "old" band members so he/they can take the RATT name on the road backed by no-names who work cheap. 

If that's the case, then the next court battle might be Blotzer suing them for stealing his business model. "That was my idea! I did it first!" :rofl2:

    • President Joe Biden's approval ratings have hit an all-time low for him at 36%, which is worse than former Presidents Trump and Obama ever had in office.
    • Really looking forward to this one.  I ordered the (2) CD set.  I already have the original TFAWIUTB.  
    • No atheist denies love is a thing. It has chemicals that make it happen but that closeness between human beings is clearly a thing and it feels good. It's also an essential part of pair bonding and the raising of the next generation.  You believe in life after death. I do too. I look at it every time I see my children. My part of the cycle of life ends when I stop puffing though.   
    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).
    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.
