The Dirty Rats

Postby Doobie » Tue Sep 16, 2008 7:36 am

JUAN CROUCIER AND JEFF LABAR JOIN FORCES IN JUAN CROUCIER'S DIRTY RATS:
Los Angeles - Juan Croucier of Ratt fame has updated the lineup of his band. Jeff LaBar (Cinderella) will now take over lead guitar duties in Juan Croucier's Dirty Rats. The band also includes John Medina on Drums (formerly of Bret Michaels' solo band). Juan Croucier, "I am extremely pleased to introduce Jeff LaBar as the new lead guitar player for the band! I have always greatly admired Jeff's guitar playing, as well as his exceptional stage presence. Clearly, he's a world-class guitarist. We're both known for our live performances, so I can't wait to hit the stage with Jeff! This band is truly going to kick serious ass!"
The Dirty Rats will begin playing fly-in shows throughout the United States before the end of the year and also plan on touring the US with a multi band package, early next year. There are also plans to begin recording a new record early next year, for release next summer. The bands set list currently includes most of Ratt's major hits, as well as other surprises.

O, cool! Juan seems like a kick -ass dude, and he blows away on stage!!! I mean, you know what I mean. We know nothing about this guitar player. I thought Tom Keifer played guitar in Cinderella. O well, it seems like Juan is diggin' on the potential of having him in the band, so that's cool. Yeah! The Dirty Rats. :wink:

Make sure you add the word "The" to Dirty Rats in case you're googling or using a different search engine. If you just search for Dirty Rats it takes you to some freaking hip hop/rap band site. :evil:

Sorry guys but this isn't happening. Sucks cause I was really interested too.


From Jeff LaBar

Freakshow & Dirty Rats
Category: Music

To whom it may concern,

Contrary to Juan Croucier's press release regarding me (Jeff LaBar) playing with his "Dirty Rats", I unfortunately must announce that I will not be able to do so. Priorities & prior commitments prevent me from pursing this. I must apologize to Juan & those fans who may have been looking forward to this but the announcement may have been a bit premature. I am first & foremost a member of "Cinderella". In addition to that, I just completed recording with Frankie Banali, Tony Franklin & "Miss Crazy's" Markus Allen Christopher with an exciting new project we're calling "Freakshow". Those of you who are in touch with these internet rock sites & Myspace may have heard about it. I have very high hopes for what we think is a fuckin' kick ass cd, which starts mixing today & I am very much committed to. I wish Juan the best of luck in the future & hope he & all you "Ratt" fans will forgive me & check out "Freakshow" when the time comes. I would also like to thank the "Cinderella" fans for your patience & loyalty as well as let you know, if you love "Cinderella", wait till you get a load of "Freakshow"!

Sincerely,

Jeff LaBar

PS- Juan hasn't been acting right since that open letter to Ratt fans about not appearing the reunion.

DAMN! The dirty rat! Huh?! O, no, I was thinking about this terrible gas I seem to have contracted while mowing the yard. Well, just have to keep 'em peeled for Freakshow, I guess.
