As drummer for one of the biggest metal bands of the ’80s, Ratt’s has managed to not only survive, but thrive on a near 30-year rollercoaster ride.  He’s taken every twist and turn and loop-de-loop with both hands in the air!  Like most bands of that era, Ratt was discarded to the ash heap of hair metal hell when the Seattle Invasion took place.  Although they continued to tour with various line-ups, they never quite reached the pinnacle of success they achieved when they had bands like Bon Jovi opening for them.  So like any red-blooded American boy would do the guys diversified, delving into numerous business ventures.  Blotz, quite possibly the most resourceful rat(t) has written a book, created his own brand of salsa and cheese, and most recently launched his own line of wines.  I got the opportunity to speak with him recently and you can listen to the interview below.
