Bobby Blotzer has been drumming professionally since his early youth. By 1984 he had joined RATT, signed their first record deal, and recorded “Out of the Cellar” which competed against blockbusters records such as Purple Rain, Like a Virgin, and Born in the USA to achieve top record of 1984.

Bobby’s debut album went on to sell six million units worldwide. During that time RATT began opening for legends such as Ozzy Osborne, Billy Squire and others.

In 1985 Bobby recorded “Invasion of your Privacy,” which went on to sell quadruple platinum. RATT toured for seven months with Bon Jovi as their opener, who was an up-and-coming-act at the time.
