    I recently heard Warren was kicked out of his own band-

    this after they just won their court case and reunited sans Blotzer.

    Does anyone know the whys or what happened?

    Here is a link to Eddie Trunk

    Probably because he was the only musician in the band.

    It’s sad but he’ll be back for more.

    Great career move, kick out the only reason to listen to the band.

    He should have moved on a long time ago from that mess.

    I heard Ratt recruited Lindsay Buckingham.

    At one point he was considered the "owner" of Ratt, and although he did
    not tour constantly, he still fought in court to protect his ownership.

    And Carlos Cavazo is leaving also- wonder who will replace
    them?

    Carlos turned down Quiet Riot a while back to stay with Ratt.

    Maybe Warren felt it was time to lay it down.

    Or maybe they broke up over a lack of communication?

    Good.
    Maybe now he'll start a new band with a singer who can actually sing.

    I heard Billy Burnette was pissed Ratt didn't call him after firing Warren.

    Rumor has it that they are trying to recruit Jake E Lee to come on board. But yeah, Warren IS Ratt. . . if this is all true, Juan and Stephen deserve Blotzer. . .

    Warren is my favorite player in that 80s rock circle. Shame they got rid of him.
