Band: Quiet Riot
Quiet Riot is significant for two reasons. The first is for introducing late guitar master Randy Rhoads; the second is for kickstarting the LA glam metal scene that dominated the 80s when 'Metal Health' debuted at No. 1 in the US, knocking Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' from the top of the chart. The band floundered after this as they tried to emulate that album's success with similar-sounding but unremarkable follow-ups. Quiet Riot reportedly split up late 2003-early 2004, but have since reformed.
Kenny Hillary, the bass player on the 1994 album, committed suicide on June 5, 1996.
Blabbermouth.net reported a rumour on November 26, 2007 that Kevin Dubrow had died in his home the previous day, aged 52. Within minutes it was confirmed.
