The countdown to Rocklahoma continues and just yesterday the members of RATT announced their "reunion" line-up via the band's Myspace page (www.myspace.com/therattpack).
The new and improved RATT features original frontman Stephen Pearcy, Warren DeMartini on lead guitar, and Bobby Blotzer on drums. Newer members included guitarist John Corabi (!) and Robbie Crane on bass. Right now, no word on why original RATT bassist Juan Croucier decided to set out the summer reunion shows.
Of all the bands at Rocklahoma - save Vince Neil - I'm most excited about seeing RATT with Pearcy and John Corabi.
As many of you know, I love John Corabi and I think his work with Motley Crue is vastly underrated. One of my goals is to interview John Corabi. I'd love to ask him about his early days on the Sunset Strip with Angora and naturally how Motley Crue changed his life, either for the good or the bad. Of course, John has his hands in many pies including work with ESP, Union and glam band The Scream.
I think it would be great if this new RATT released an album of originals, but I doubt that will happen.
Here's a video with John in The Scream.
