Quiet Riot  

Veteran hard rock band Quiet Riot has two claims to fame. One is their massively popular '83 album Metal Health, featuring the title track and the even more popular "Cum On Feel The Noize" (a cover of the British rock group Slade). The second claim to fame is that this is where acclaimed guitarist Randy Rhoads got his start, before making it big as Ozzy Osbourne's first lead guitarist and then tragically being killed in an accident a few years later. Often it is mistakenly written that Quiet Riot were the first metal band to go to #1 with their first album, but in fact Metal Health was their third, as the band released two albums in Japan with Rhoads in the late 70's -- his departure necesitated somewhat of a style change and Metal Health was the result. They were never able to duplicate that album's success, though they remained a popular live act for some time. For many years they were an on-again, off-again item, under various lineups, until 1999, at which time the classic Metal Health lineup came back together. That version survived until September 2003, when they announced their (presumably) final breakup. However, the duo of Kevin DuBrow and Frankie Banali decided to work together once again, and with a couple of hired guns in tow, recorded Rehab in 2006, reportedly a departure from the classic QR style, towards a more 70's rock sound. Sadly, that reformation came to an end in late 2007, with the unfortunate passing of DuBrow.
