Watched an early screener of an upcoming new documentary on Quiet Riot called “Now Your Here There’s No Way Back”. Found it to be really good. It was sad, funny, and very honest in what they showed and how it was dealt with. Cameras followed them around and captured some amazing and at times pretty raw moments. There is some footage from the early Randy years and tells the story of the bands many lineups, how they evolved, and how they seemingly overnight became massive. I think the importance of Metal Health is often overlooked. It was a HUGE album and in many ways a gateway to the 80’s metal explosion. Both Dee Snider and Glenn Hughes (very close friend of Kevin DuBrow’s) offer some great commentary. But the story also revolves greatly around Frankie Banali, his friendship with Kevin, his life now, and his attempts to keep the band going for better or worse. Loved the honesty and how transparent and tough things can be for a band from the 80’s now, especially lacking a key member. How Frankie deals with Kevin’s death is also dealt with. Really recommend the film and I’ll keep you posted as to when and where you can see it once it is released.

    Frankie seems like a genuine nice guy! I heard him in a lot of interviews and he is very articulate and really seems to be a great human being!

    I saw the 4 guys i call the original lineup (Carlos) on lead guitar at a little club on the wrong side of the tracks at there lowest around 1992 and they rocked. There might have been 75 paying people there but they rocked like it was MSG. Good times

    When I saw the Quiet Riot open for Maiden on their World Piece Tour in Knoxville Tn, at the Coliseum, 10,000 seats, sold out, half of the people walked right out the door after Quiet Riot’s blistering set…they were so freaking loud.
