Chris Epting of AOL‘s Noisecreep conducted an interview with QUIET RIOT drummer Frankie Banali at this year’s NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that took place January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. You can now watch the chat below.
QUIET RIOT in March 2012 recruited Scott Vokoun as its new lead singer.
The band played several shows in early February 2012 with ex-MONTROSE vocalist Keith St. John following the departure of Mark Huff.
QUIET RIOT‘s current touring lineup is as follows:
Scott Vokoun – Vocals
Frankie Banali – Drums
Chuck Wright – Bass
Alex Grossi – Guitar
QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow died in November 2007 of an accidental cocaine overdose. He was 52 years old.
QUIET RIOT was perhaps best known for its 1983 cover of “Cum On Feel The Noize”. The song, featuring DuBrow‘s powerful, gravelly voice, appeared on the band’s album “Metal Health” — which was the first by a metal band to reach No. 1 on the Billboard chart.
