And to think, Keith Richards is still alive at 97.
I saw Quiet Riot on one of those ‘where are they now’ shows on VH1 a few years back, and they were still on the road; playing in dive bars, wearing the same stripy spandex gear, and mooning the camera and so forth. Sad. Full disclosure: I thought they totally kicked ass when I saw them open for Black Sabbath back in the 80s.
Sadly, when Quiet Riot were in their heyday I was still in diapers. Nevertheless, I did come to enjoy them retrospectively and am proud owner of a vinyl copy of Metal Health that I picked up at Goodwill for a dollar.
My initial response when seeing the story was “Man, another old rocker overdose” but reading more about DuBrow, it’s kind of sounding like it may have been a suicide – if so, that’s a shame.
