According to a new press release, QUIET RIOT, the band who introduced the world to their groundbreaking #1 selling album Metal Health, are back after an eighteen month absence. Driven by vocalist Kevin DuBrow, powered by drummer Frankie Banali, both Quiet Riot founding members, the band is now fueled by longtime QR contributing bassist Chuck Wright and BEAUTIFUL CREATURES guitarist Alex Grossi….Quiet Riot will be releasing their first ever official live CD Quiet Riot Live & Rare in January 2005. It will include tracks from their 1983 Metal Health tour and the 1984 Condition Critical tour as well as three rare 1981 “demo” tracks for their Metal Health release.
This bit of 80′s re-tread news comes via those good folks at Hard News. Its too bad the other original two members have not chosen to join this re-grouping.
