R.I.P. – Kevin DuBrow (1955-2007)
It was a sad day last year when the Metal world was shaken with the news of Quiet Riot singer Kevin DuBrow’s passing in his Las Vegas home. Quiet Riot hit it big when I was starting to get deep into the Hard Rock scene back in the early ’80s. You couldn’t stop hearing the band on the radio or seeing their videos on MTV and I was a fan from METAL HEALTH on. I never saw them live in the ’80s but when Kevin and the band made it to town in the ’90s (and beyond), I never missed a gig. Some of the best music the band made came AFTER their ’80s heyday and Kevin (along with Frankie Banali) was the band’s driving force. It’s sad that Kevin passed with so many more years to go but he is celebrated with the music and memories he left behind. Rest in peace Kevin, you are missed…..
