QUIET RIOT: the band that won't die


Recommended Posts

Quiet Riot to continue on without a single original member:

QUIET RIOT - 2020/2021 Because life goes on!
It was Frankie Banali's wish that the band continue and we keep the music and the legacy alive.
Chuck Wright has been in the band off and on since 1981 and played not only on the song "Metal Health" but many other QUIET RIOT Albums. Alex Grossi has been in the band since 2004 touring and recording. Jizzy Pearl has been a member of the QUIET RIOT family since 2013 and Johnny Kelly has been doing a great job filling in on drums this past year with Frankie's blessing.
We are happy to have shows on the calendar with many more TBA and very much look forward to celebrating the history and legacy of QUIET RIOT with all of you in 2021 and Beyond...!!

At this point in time (and hell even before Frankie passed) it really is time to lay the band name to rest and instead use some kind of tribute name like Metal Health or something.

Just because Frankie sadly passed away does not change my opinion on continuing this band once Kevin passed away.

Someone tried arguing on social media that Kevin was not an original member and they should have laid the band to rest when Randy died, by my logic. Had to point out that Kevin was at least on the first two albums, and those two albums were only available in Japan and the band split after Randy left to join Ozzy, and Kevin then asked him for his blessing in reactivating the band and Randy gave the OK, plus Randy was not in the band when he died anyway.


I think some people cannot grasp the concept that for most people, the founding members of the band are the ones on the first album, not the people who came before that. Most bands are in flux before they record their debut.
