Quiet Riot calls it quits, for those who care

A couple nights ago Quiet Riot was supposed to play the Machine Shop here in Flint, Michigan. Our local radio station, Banana 101.5, reported that the show was cancelled because lead singer Kevin DuBrow no-showed, something he has done at a lot of shows according to band members. 101.5 interviewed the rest of the band, and they said this was the last straw, and the band was done.

Melodic Rock.com has finally picked up on this, and they're waiting for confirmation from various band members that they keep in touch with.

No major loss, to be honest. My brother's band opened for them in Detroit about 6 years ago, and outdrew Quiet Riot by about 75%. I've never seen that happen with a local act opening for a national act.

I don't care, but he always seemed like a diva everytime I saw a QR interview back in the day..

Now I bet he's hoping he can get his dishwashing job back at Denny's...

I still love how the band dumped him the first time he started acting up. They turned off his alarm clock and left the hotel without him.

The guitarists, Sarzo and Cavazo, are pretty good. I hope they can move on to something better. DuBrow's voice sucked live, though.

You know, I really like Metal Health and Condition Critical, and the "reunion" era albums Terrified and Down To The Bone were both pretty darned good.

They can always say that they were the first Heavy Metal band to have a #1 album.

It was defninitely an uneven career, but they had their moments.

Was Rudy Sarzo in the current line up ?
Although I was never a real big fan of QR , I thought Sarzo was bad as hell.
Check him out on Ozzy's Speak Of The Devil record & you will hear some really good bass playing.

Rudy Sarzo was in the current QR line-up. The Metal Health line-up got back together about 5 years ago.

I saw QR in a small club a few months ago and they kicked major @$$. They played like there were 10,000 people in the place. Don't diss them. They still kick the hell of of 90% of the garbage that is out there.

They were advertising this tour as the "original lineup," but of course that was wrong, as I don't think they found a way to bring Randy Rhodes back to life.

So yeah, this was the best known lineup of Banalli, Sarzo, Cavazo and DuBrow.

Diva fricking lead singers

Eddie Vedder
Axle Rose
Kevin Dubrow

The irony is being a Diva is what makes great flamboyant lead singers but it's also the thing most likely to make them pricks. It's also the thing most likely to get them fired.
