From the Associated Press:

Quiet Riot Singer Died Of Overdose

Kevin Dubrow

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The death last month of Kevin Dubrow, lead singer for the 1980s heavy metal band Quiet Riot, has been ruled an accidental cocaine overdose. Clark County coroner spokeswoman Samantha Charles confirmed the cause Monday after toxicology results were received Monday.

Dubrow was found dead Nov. 25 at his Las Vegas home. He was 52.

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.

DuBrow recorded a solo album in 2004, “In for the Kill,” and the band’s last studio CD, “Rehab,” came out in October 2006.

About.com: Heavy Metal has been kind enough to feature this website in a new article: “Heavy Metal Blogs You Don’t Want To Miss.”

It’s very cool to see my site listed alongside heavyweights like Blabbermouth, Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles, Headbanger’s Ball, and The Deciblog. It’s also nice to be listed among blogs that I read daily that I think are some of the best: All Metal Resource, The Metal Minute,  and Metal Sucks.

My thanks to Chad Bowar at Heavy Metal About for including Heavy Metal Addiction…..go over and check his site out! Check the sidebar for links to these websites and more.
