  1. From what I have read, stage 4 pancreatic cancer means it has spread to other organs such as kidneys etc and is no longer curable. Any treatments would now be about extending lifespan rather than trying to erradicate it, so the prognosis for him is not great, sadly.

The drummer revealed in a social media post that he has been battling the disease since this past spring, saying that he is "feeling much better and stronger now" and vowing to play with QUIET RIOT later this month and through 2020. "I just want to let all of my friends and fans know what's going on with me and why I have unfortunately missed some appearances this year," Banali said in a statement posted on podcaster Mitch Lafon's Facebook page. "I just want to let all of my friends and fans know what's going on with me and why I have unfortunately missed some appearances this year. Since April 17th, I have been battling stage four pancreatic cancer. "The original prognosis was very scary. I had quite a battle on my hands and it took a lot, but I am thankful to say that after several rounds of chemo and other treatments, I am on the mend. The road ahead is not going to be easy but cancer has met its match and I plan to continue fighting. "I wish I could have been with you all at every QUIET RIOT performance as this is the first time in 38 years I have ever missed a gig," he continued. "Please know that if I had been able to fly on a plane and play a show nothing else would have stopped me. I am feeling much better and stronger now. "I intend to play the QUIET RIOT concert at the Whisky A Go Go on Saturday October 26th and to continue touring in 2020 with QUIET RIOT, so I hope to see you there. I appreciate all the fans that support QUIET RIOT by coming to shows and I hope you will all continue that support as well as keeping me in your thoughts and prayers." QUIET RIOT played several shows this year without Banali, marking the first time ever that the band performed without any of the members from its classic lineup: Banali, singer Kevin DuBrow, guitarist Carlos Cavazo and bassist Rudy Sarzo. At some of QUIET RIOT's recent shows, Banali was replaced by Johnny Kelly (DANZIG, TYPE O NEGATIVE). Banali resurrected QUIET RIOT in 2010, three years after the death of founding member and singer Kevin DuBrow. QUIET RIOT initially featured the late guitar legend Randy Rhoads and went through some early lineup shifts before securing the musicians that recorded the band's multi-platinum-selling 1983 album "Metal Health". Wright has been a part of QUIET RIOT, on and off, since 1982, having initially been involved in the "Metal Health" recordings (he played bass on the tracks "Metal Health" and "Don't Wanna Let You Go"). Grossi was in the last version of the band, from 2004 through 2007, before Kevin passed away, and was asked by Banali to return in 2010. QUIET RIOT went through two vocalists — Mark Huff and Scott Vokoun — before settling on Jizzy Pearl in 2013. Pearl announced his exit from QUIET RIOT in October 2016 and was briefly replaced by Seann Nichols, who played only five shows with the group before the March 2017 arrival of "American Idol" finalist Durbin. Pearl returned to QUIET RIOT in September. QUIET RIOT's new studio album, "Hollywood Cowboys", will be released on November 8 via Frontiers Music Srl.
  3. I saw Seb live a couple of years ago, and while he obviously played a mix of Skid Row and solo stuff, it was the Skid Row stuff from the first two albums that really made everyones night. I personally still rate the debut album as their best and one of the top albums of that era.
  4. By the looks of it, it was a massive hit all over the world, including the USA, so no idea why they think this is one that was never played on radio etc Chart (1997) Peak position Australia (ARIA)[29] 1 Austria (Ö3 Austria Top 40)[30] 14 Belgium (Ultratop 50 Flanders)[31] 9 Belgium (Ultratop 50 Wallonia)[32] 30 Canada Top Singles (RPM)[33] 1 Canada Adult Contemporary (RPM)[34] 1 Canada Rock/Alternative (RPM)[35] 1 France (SNEP)[36] 38 Germany (Official German Charts)[37] 11 Hungary (Mahasz)[38] 5 Iceland (Íslenski Listinn Topp 40)[39] 10 Ireland (IRMA)[40] 1 Italy (Hit Parade Italia)[19] 1 Netherlands (Dutch Top 40)[41] 10 Netherlands (Single Top 100)[42] 16 New Zealand (Recorded Music NZ)[43] 1 Norway (VG-lista)[44] 2 Scotland (Official Charts Company)[45] 1 Sweden (Sverigetopplistan)[46] 6 Switzerland (Schweizer Hitparade)[47] 14 UK Singles (Official Charts Company)[48] 2 US Alternative Songs (Billboard)[49] 1 US Adult Top 40 (Billboard)[50] 1 US Billboard Hot 100[1] 6 US Mainstream Top 40 (Billboard)[51] 1
  5. Looks like they released an EP back in 2016 (CD now out of print but can still be downloaded from Bandcamp) and at least one other single in 2017.
  6. I actually enjoyed this album. Its nowhere near as good as the last few albums, and the effects on his voice can be annoying, but overall its pretty cool.
  7. Sounds good, but you got the name wrong in the title. It's an L not an i
  8. Been listening to this album since Saturday and two things stood out. Little white lies (one of the videos above) has an almost Beatlesesque sound to it, and kinda reminds me of mid period Enuff Z Nuff, and Fade away sounds like they are channeling David Bowie (very reminiscent of something like Life on Mars). Overall a very good album, but need a few more spins before I give it a full verdict.
  9. It's the opening track from his debut album, Thunder.
  10. Funny thing is. I kinda thought the same after first spin, but when it came to picking some songs to stick in my rock playlist I ended up sticking 7 out of 10 songs into it, so I guess more clicked than I realised.
  11. After a long lay off, and a return to their original sound, Toxic Heart are finally back with a new single
  12. I cannot say I have any specific go to albums these days as I listen mostly to a huge random playlist of 6000+ songs most of the time. But I would have to say that favourite albums and go to albums would probably be the same thing for most people. When you buy a new album it might be on constant rotation for a while, but your favourites of all time are the ones you will probably go back to the most, and sometimes the best "go to" albums are the best ofs and greatest hits type deals as well.
  13. On the main site the band Wild Ride is listed as American but they are actually Dutch.
  14. Got the album today, and while I certainly would not call it on par with Wazbones, it certainly has that kinda feel about it rather than Bezerk or similar. Much more modern and dark, but with some fantastic guitar work. A couple of songs I was not sure about on first spin, but get the feeling that they might need a few more spins before they hook in. Overall I am sure this album wont appeal to everyone here, but if you liked Wazbones you should at least give it a try. (hell, Cy and Andy are also part of the band, so its actually the whole line up from Wazbones minus Pepsi Tate).
  15. I loved the debut album and that new song sounds great. One of the only complaints with the debut was the singer had quite a strong accent, but when they re-recorded one of the songs off that album with the new singer, there was much less of an accent with this guy and it seems to have carried over to this song as well, which is another bonus.
  16. So they wanna sound like they did on the debut ... thats what I said.
  17. Why would they reference its what their debut would sound like in 2019 and call it H.E.A.T. 2 unless they are hinting that its a variation of the sound of the debut? If they are not saying that, then they could say the same thing with any of their albums. Oh, Address the nation sounds like debut if we had recorded it this year. Tearing down the walls is how a debut album would sound if it was recorded this year. You do not reference it being essentially how your debut would sound in a certain year unless you are trying to at least partially throw back to the sound of the original.
  18. What would you say this quote in the original post says then? "This is how we would sound if we made a debut album 2019, hence the title."
  19. Song is pretty weak and really do not like the vocals. Song has absolutely no balls.
  20. Oh, and not 100% convinced about the first two London albums. The debut was certainly never issued on CD by Shrapnel as the entry says, and the only releases I can find any info on are Timewarp which is most defo a bootleg, an unoffficial Russian pressing which claims to be Shrapnel and one by a label called "Vamps Worldwide" which I am struggling to find out if they are genuine or not as they seem to have only ever released albums by London over a 5 year period. Don't Cry Wolf was apparentl issued by Retrospect but most sites say that was an unofficial release, and I don't wanna go down that rabbit hole of whether Retrospect was genuine or not with all their releases. That topic has been done to death.
  21. The Steel Panter - British invasion that has just gone up on the site does not include a CD to my knowledge. I have only ever seen it on 2 DVD or single Blu ray. The bootlegs or wrong entries that I have seen are: Wrathchild - Trash queens (only ever available on vinyl or bootleg CD) LA Guns - Collectors edition No 1 (only ever available on vinyl or as a bonus CD with the Hollywood Raw album) Rankelson - Both albums (both never available on CD, but will be released next year probably as a double album) That's just the ones I have spotted.
  22. Yes, their self titled album was probably my top album of the year it came out despite getting it late because I was not sure I was gonna like it. Overrated is subjective because to me they are vastly underrated.
