QUIET RIOT: Reform with Van Halen Tribute Singer…Ugh

After the death of QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow in 2007 at the age of 52 (…Kevin Dubrow Died From Cocaine Overdose), many figured that the band was over…

*NOPE*

Apparently, while going through the vaults of vintage video material for an upcoming documentary of QUIET RIOT’s history, the spark was reignited once more for drummer Frankie Banali to kick QUIET RIOT back in gear. The easy part was filling the guitar and bass slots — as former members Chuck Wright (bass) and Alex Grossi (guitar) promptly signed on. However, having to fill DuBrow’s large shoes was no small task.

A longtime fan of heavy metal, singer Mark Huff came to Banali’s attention while fronting a California-based Van Halen tribute band (that focused on the “Sammy Hagar era”).  Mark Huff auditioned via a cattle call audition and got the gig. After getting the blessing from DuBrow’s mother to carry on with QUIET RIOT (and to celebrate her son’s music), the group is ready to rock once more.
