Quiet Riot has announced that Rudy Sarzo will be officially re-joining the band’s live ranks on November 6th at The Groove Music Hall in Woodford, VA.

The band recently welcomed legendary bassist and Metal Health lineup founding member Rudy Sarzo back to the band after an 18-year absence. Rudy is looking forward to recording and touring with the band.

Quiet Riot continues its historic journey as per the wishes of Frankie Banali, who passed away in 2020, and the Banali estate. The band continues to play live with the lineup composed of guitarist Alex Grossi, vocalist Jizzy Pearl, and filling Frankie Banali’s shoes behind the drums is Johnny Kelly of Type O Negative.

2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the group with Rudy Sarzo, recording the landmark Metal Health album, which has sold over ten million copies and spawned the hits Cum On Feel The Noize and Metal Health, and on the follow-up record Condition Critical. Sarzo appeared in the most notable music videos in the MTV age and toured with the band until 1985 and again from 1997 to 2003. During his years out of the band, Rudy Sarzo was a member of Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Dio, Blue Öyster Cult, Queensrÿche, and The Guess Who.

Sarzo says, “I’m excited to be back home and celebrate the Quiet Riot legacy, which began 40 years ago next year with the recording of Metal Health, the first heavy metal album to reach number one on the Billboard top 200 albums chart.”
