Re: Quiet Riot singer dead at 52

if you're looking to remain a viable touring entity, these unknown guys probably aren't the best option.
Especially if one of the replacements can't remember the lyrics.

To their biggest song, no less. I liked the second replacement more than the first. At least he had some sort of presence on stage.

Jizzy Pearl is pretty much THE go-to guy when you're looking for a new singer. He has fronted LA Guns, Ratt and now Quiet Riot. Dude gets around.

I just saw the documentary this weekend as well. Half of it anyway; I jumped in after DuBrow was dead and before Frankie reformed the band. I was interested the entire time. Like you, I preferred the 2nd singer over the first. Those mistakes were unacceptable. I'm not a fan of Jizzy Pearl though and didn't like him on last year's album.

I want to learn more about this Jizzy Pearl dude. But I'm at work now and there's no way doing a google search can end up any way but bad.

Frankie Banali has passed

I remember the doc he did on Showtime a couple of years ago.

RIP


Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali has died at age 68 following a battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. The rock veteran, who also played with W.A.S.P., Faster Pussycat, Dokken, Billy Idol, Steppenwolf, and others during his five-decade career, was diagnosed in April 2019 and at that time given only six months to live, but he fought hard, becoming a spokesperson for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) and even returning to his drum kit for a triumphant comeback show at Hollywood’s Whisky a Go Go in October last year.

Re: Quiet Riot singer dead at 52

Frankie was an interesting guy.

He could be a nice guy sometimes, but when it came to Quiet Riot after Kevin died Frankie really became a bit of a tyrant. He fired a singer when the singer was in a coma fighting for his life. (I know this because that singer was also singing for my brother's band, so my brother saw the termination letter that was mailed while the singer was in the hospital following surgery for a life threatening condition.)

He was VERY protective of Quiet Riot, even though the band was barely able to bring in 200 people a show at the club level. The death of Kevin DuBrow really messed with him, too, because they were good friends and Kevin hid his cocaine addiction from everyone, including Frankie. (DuBrow was such an odd case, too - cocaine is usually a social drug, but he used it secretly, alone in his home.)

I would have to imagine that this finally ends Quiet Riot. I can't imagine Rudy Sarzo and Carlos Cavazo putting together a new line-up without DuBrow and Banali. (Although Sarzo was in the original version of Quiet Riot with Dubrow and Randy Rhoads...)

Banali went through a lot with his pancreatic cancer, and he handled it remarkably well (or appeared to, anyway). Whatever shortcomings and faults he may have had, no one deserves what he went through.

Listen to Unearthed Kevin DuBrow-Era Quiet Riot Song
https://ultimateclassicrock.com/quie...-cant-hold-on/

Quiet Riot has released a previously unfinished track featuring late vocalist Kevin DuBrow and late drummer Frankie Banali.

"I Can't Hold On" appears on a newly remastered version of the group's 2008 album, Rehab, which has been added to streaming services for the first time. You can watch a video below.

DuBrow and Banali passed away in 2007 and in 2020, respectively. They're joined on this posthumous release by bassist Rudy Sarzo, a Metal Health-era bandmate. Guitarist Alex Grossi completes the lineup on the recording, which began as a demo that he and DuBrow wrote and recorded in 2003.

Grossi also plays guitar in the current version of Quiet Riot with Sarzo. He discovered the vintage recording by chance in 2021, and Quiet Riot decided to finish "I Can't Hold On" so that fans could hear it at last. “I had completely forgotten about it until it turned up on an old iPod last summer," Grossi said in a news release. "The way it came to life almost 20 years later is truly special.”

Sarzo said he became emotional while recording bass parts to help complete the track. "I was all by myself, but [spiritually], Frankie and Kevin were in the room with me," he tells UCR. "I know their musical tastes so well, and what they liked. That helped [shape] my perception of what my contribution should be – so everybody's happy."

Regina Banali, Frankie's widow, was moved to develop a video for "I Can't Hold On," featuring archival footage and photographs. She notes that the Rehab album was "very important" to both the drummer and DuBrow, while it eventually became "a significant part" of the musical soundtrack of her 2014 film about Quiet Riot.

The new version of Rehab, featuring "I Can't Hold On," is available now.

Their set at the U.S. Festival in 1983 is phenomenal. You can watch it on YouTube.
