  1. Being i saw them twice in their heyday, I wouldn’t be interested in seeing this version of the band. Maybe if Carlos was a part of it.

  2. Where is Carlos and why is he never mentioned when talking about Quiet Riot? Everyone always mentions Randy Rhodes, but the Quiet Riot that was most successful had Carlos in it. Why doesn’t he ever play with them anymore?

  3. I seen QR or at least Kevin at an outdoor 80’s event in Portsmouth Va at some point. Can’t remember the exact year but I can’t find record of this anywhere. I think The Outfield was part of the lineup.
