2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the recording of the landmark Metal Health album with Rudy on bass, which has sold over ten million copies. It spawned the hits Cum On Feel The Noize and Metal Health and the entire hair band craze in the 1980s. 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.

States Rudy Sarzo: “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 #1 on the Billboard top 200 albums chart.”
