Earlier this week, radio personality Eddie Trunk said on his SiriusXM show that several “very well-placed sources” told him “that Warren‘s not in RATT anymore,” although he stressed that no official statement or comment has yet been made about the split by any of the involved parties.
Corabi, who had a seven-year stint (2001-2008) as the rhythm guitarist in RATT, happened to be on Trunk‘s program on Monday and was asked for his opinion of the ongoing drama surrounding his former band. Without going into specifics, the ex-MÖTLEY CRÜE singer confirmed that prolonged and bitter quarrels between RATT members are nothing new. “There’s been eleventh-hour arguments and bickering and feuding, right up to the point where they’re getting ready to leave to go do a tour, and somebody in the band will go, ‘Nope. I’m not gonna do it,’ and just leave,” Corabi revealed. “That’s how I got the gig. I forget who I replaced. Robbin [Crosby] passed away. Then I think the first year or two, it was Keri Kelli. And then I went in. But they already had Jizzy [Pearl on vocals]. Juan was out, so Robbie Crane was in there [on bass]. And then Stephen finally came back, which I… Having gone through the MÖTLEY thing, I get it now. But Stephen‘s the singer, Warren‘s the gunslinger, and you can’t do RATT without those two guys.”
