Kevin DuBrow (1955 – 2007)
Three years ago today, Quiet Riot frontman Kevin DuBrow passed away in his Las Vegas home, he was 52 years old. I got into Quiet Riot back in 1983, just like most fans did, when they released their groundbreaking METAL HEALTH album. I heard them on the radio and watched the band’s videos on MTV, the band was at the top of the charts and Kevin was the face (and mouth!) of the band. Unfortunately, the band’s career slipped as the years went on but some of my favorite music and memories of Kevin DuBrow and Quiet Riot came in the mid-90s through 2006 when the band was re-establishing itself and eventually reunited the classic lineup. My friends and I tried to catch every local concert the band put on and we were always treated to a great show. Thanks for the music and memories Kevin, rest in peace…..
