Ratt On Indefinite Hiatus?

According to Metal Sludge, it appears that 80s hard rock veterans Ratt may once again be close to calling it a day. A rumour recently circulated that bass player Robbie Crane was out of the band, so Metal Sludge contacted the bassist and when asked about the situation, he replied:

"As far as I'm concerned there is no Ratt to be 'fired' from, as Ratt is on an indefinite hiatus as we've finished the Infestation tour in Japan last week. Warren has dates with his and Dee Snider's Christmas band, Stephen has 4 to 6 months of solo dates, Carlos is working with Rudy and Vinny on an awesome new project and I'm touring with Lynch Mob over the next couple of months. Thanks for the concern."

Stay tuned for further updates.

80s dead? Nah. Still going strong. 80s will live a lot longer than these nu-metal disasters of this millenium.
