  • Overview

    Legendary bassist and Metal Health founding member Rudy Sarzo has returned to the band after almost a 20 year absence. As per the wishes of Frankie Banali who passed away in 2020, and the Banali estate, Quiet Riot continues its historic journey in 2022. The lineup is composed of Quiet Riot guitarist Alex Grossi, vocalist Jizzy Pear and is now joined by Type O Negative drummer Johnny Kelly. 

    Quiet Riot is a rock & roll phenomenon. Famously described as the first heavy metal band to top the pop chart at #1 on Billboard magazine, the Los Angeles quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album Metal Health.
