Quiet Riot Singer Dead Six Days Before Discovery

ABC's Las Vegas affiliate KTNV-TV reports: Police say after a distressed call from family members, QUIET RIOT lead singer Kevin DuBrow's next door neighbor and friend kicked down the door to find the 52-year-old dead.

Police say DuBrow had been dead for about six days before his body was discovered. Lori Lee Samson, DuBrow's fiancée, was the last person to see him alive. She says when days passed, she new something was wrong.

Among the collection of memories, Lori Samson will forever save DuBrow's last words. "At 2:40 am Monday he texted me I love you so much," Samson says.

His death has sent shockwaves to fans and family.

Samson says she will cherish the last moments spent with him and her son. She never knew the man she met years ago was a legendary rock star. Still rocking into his 50s, they celebrated Dubrow's birthday just two weeks ago. Samson says Dubrow performed for charities, growing more humble with age.

At 52 years old, QUIET RIOT's vocalist finally found the one. The couple was supposed to appear on A&E for a roast of Gene Simmons.

The coroner's office is now investigating the exact cause of death.

Samson says something fans never knew is that alcohol was not allowed backstage at their concerts. This was in support of band members' struggle with sobriety.

Friends Puzzle Over Quiet Riot Singers Death

Greg Burk of the Los Angeles Times reports: The life of QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow, who died at age 52 over the weekend in Las Vegas, had not been on a completely even keel after he'd broken up this month with his girlfriend of more than seven years, Las Vegas television personality and KXPT-FM radio DJ Lark Williams, according to friends saddened Monday by the news of his death.

Nevertheless, "his mood the last couple of months was stable," said former DEEP PURPLE bassist and singer Glenn Hughes, who said he had communicated with DuBrow several times a week since they had become reacquainted after a 2001 performance by Hughes in Las Vegas. "He did not sound agitated or paranoid or anything at all — he was just normal Kevin," Hughes said. He added that QUIET RIOT's recent tour had gone well.

Williams said she didn't think DuBrow had any health problems. "He was as strong as an ox, that boy. He ate well, took a lot of vitamins. He worked out, and of course when he performed it was quite a workout," she said Tuesday from Las Vegas. "He never looked better." She said she had last communicated with him about a week ago by text message, with no indications that anything was awry.

As of Tuesday, the Las Vegas police were not investigating the death as a suspicious one. Samantha Charles, the communications officer with the Clark County coroner's office, said that an autopsy was performed Monday on DuBrow and that official determination of the cause of death would depend on results of toxicology tests, which could take six to 12 weeks.

Annihilator Guitarist Talks Quiet Riot Singer

Guitarist Jeff Waters of the long-running Canadian thrashers ANNIHILATOR has posted the following message on the band's official forum:

"QUIET RIOT had an impact on me when I was a teen and when I wasn't listening to their music, I was playing it or seeing a cover band that was playing it! 'Metal Health' was a brilliant record and his voice and [guitarist Carlos] Cavazo's playing was damn good for that time... and very influential to many others. From [bassist Rudy] Sarzo licking his thumb to the spandex and posing; pure cheese but great cheese! Their music was rock and metal and party music all in one.

"It is a sad day for metal, as DuBrow and QUIET RIOT helped, in their own way, make metal what it has become today.

"RIP, dude. You will be missed by many and thanks for the memories and the music."

Motley Crue Bassist Remembers Quiet Riot Singer

MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx has released the following statement to Saviours Of Rock regarding the passing of QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow:

"I was thinking about sitting in Kevin's apartment in 1979. I had just been over to [late QUIET RIOT/OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist] Randy Rhoads' (who still lived with his mom at the time) learning some of their songs. Randy called Kevin while I was there and told him they should get me to be the bass player in QUIET RIOT. I passed... 'cause we all had a destiny.

"Today is a sad day.

"[Kevin] always did what he loved most — music — and always said what was on his mind. And that is the measure of a man.

"He will be missed.

"I'm grateful to have those early memories.... before the fame, just kids with dreams.

"I send my love and support to his family and friends... I know this is a hard time."

"I really don't know where to start.

"Kevin was a beautiful soul and I feel more than fortunate to have known, worked and learned from him. Kevin was always a positive influence in what sometimes can be a very negative business. I am proud to have called him my friend, and always will be.

"Kevin DuBrow was a true lover of music and was EXTREMELY dedicated to his craft.

"I am honored to have been part of a band that changed the face of hard rock forever and to have been given the opportunity to play, write, and most importantly be part of his life. He will be forever missed.

"Rest in peace, my friend."

Quiet Riot Bassist Speaks On Late Singer

QUIET RIOT bassist Chuck Wright has issued the following statement regarding the death of vocalist Kevin DuBrow via Saviours Of Rock:

"I'm completely shocked and devastated. I’ve truly lost a brother and it’s a very sad loss for the world of rock n' roll. I'm so very fortunate to have been a part of his life these past 26 years. I have so many fond memories and it's a blessing that these recent few years have been so great with the band. There is no reason to say 'I wish we could have...' We did! I still can't believe I won't be sharing the stage with his larger than life presence ever again. The man left a mark wherever he went and I’m heartbroken that he is no longer with us."

Sadly,
Chuck Wright

Bassist Rudy Sarzo Speaks On Quiet Riot Singer

Ex-QUIET RIOT bassist Rudy Sarzo spoke to Headbanger's Blog about the passing of his former bandmate, QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow.

"All of us are in shock trying to deal with this," Sarzo told Headbanger's Blog. "The last thing you expect when you get up in the morning is something like this. He was somebody who really loved life. He loved to have fun and have a great time. Every day to him was like a party — that's what it was like when I played with him."

Sarzo added, "I think he’ll be remembered for being a hell of a rock singer. He was definitely one of the best singers of the '80s."

Katherine Turman, a music journalist who produces Alice Cooper's radio show, "Nights With Alice Cooper", praised DuBrow's dynamic state presence. "I was in high school the first time I saw Kevin at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, and I remember loving their song 'Slick Black Cadillac'," she told Headbanger's Blog. "Kevin was a super-energetic performer and listeners need to know there was more to QUIET RIOT than SLADE covers."

Former RIP magazine editor and "Life on Planet Rock" author Lonn Friend, who was good friends with DuBrow, told Headbanger's Blog that the singer refused to dwell on the past and lived to the fullest. "He was never without a smile on his face or a bounce in his step. It didn't matter what rug he plopped on his head or what folks might be saying about the guy he was in the spandex-clad past, Kevin didn't give a f— anymore. He was content playing his own rock, venturing out to see his musical peers shred it loud and hard and totally enjoying the second half of his life."

Ex-Warrant Guitarist Comments On Quiet Riot Singer

Former WARRANT guitarist Billy Morris, who played guitar with QUIET RIOT off and on during the band's later years, has released the following statement to D.X. Ferris of the Cleveland Scene regarding the passing of QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow:

"Wow. Today I learned that my friend Kevin DuBrow passed away. This blows me away. No one would ever imagine this happening to Kevin, especially me, after knowing him for the past eight years. During our tours together, he would really take care of himself, eating well (certainly better than the rest of us). He'd take his vitamins every day, and always kept his body and voice in check. One thing about Kevin was that he was always so thankful for what he had. Performing live and creating music were his passions, and he was grateful for the time he spent with his friends and fans. The rock scene has lost an icon, an individual who brought it every night! Kevin, you will be missed."

According to The Associated Press, a neighbor summoned police and paramedics Sunday (November 25) to the Las Vegas home where the 52-year-old Dubrow was pronounced dead at 5:20 p.m., police and coroner's officials said.

There was no forced entry at the house, and no suspicious circumstances were reported, police Officer Jose Montoya said.

The cause and manner of death were not immediately known, pending an autopsy and toxicology results, Clark County coroner's spokeswoman Samantha Charles said.

Quiet Riot Drummer: "I've Lost My Best Friend"

"I'm at a loss for words. I've just lost my best friend," Banali told CNN. "Out of respect for both Kevin and his family, I won't comment further. There's going to be a lot of speculation out there, and I won't add to that. I love him too much."

QUIET RIOT hit the top of the charts with its 1983 album, "Metal Health", considered by some sources as the first heavy metal album to hit No. 1. The album was driven by the group's cover of SLADE's "Cum on Feel the Noize", which hit the Top 40.

Rocklahoma Expects 50,000 People Per Day

Rob Rogers, director of productions for Catch the Fever Music Festivals, cannot say enough about Rocklahoma, an 80s rock festival coming July 13-15.

Although Country Fever will happen first, June 7-10, at the facility between Adair and Pryor, Rogers talked almost exclusively about Rocklahoma when he visited Adair.

“These people do have money and they will put it into the community,” Rogers said. “The first week of sales outsold Country Fever and the VIP sold out first.”

VIP seats are up front and include non-alcoholic drinks, beer, parking, lunch and dinner. To make sure enough VIP seats will be available, Rogers said, a $1 million renovation is being completed at Catch the Fever’s facility.

Rocklahoma is happening in Oklahoma, but it was announced at a press conference in Los Angeles. Since then, Rogers said tickets have been sold to people in 15 countries, four Canadian provinces and all 50 states.

“We expect 50,000 to 60,000 people each day,” Rogers said. “Every hotel room is booked in a 50- to 70-mile radius. People are thinking about renting their houses.

“This isn’t a four-state area thing. This is worldwide. The numbers just keep going daily.”

Rogers said some of the bands in the line up hope their career will be restarted with this exposure. “This is different than Country Fever where the acts come in and out. The bands will be staying here,” Rogers said.

Rogers said the festival will be broadcast on world-wide pay for view television and the VH-1 music channel.

Rocklahoma will feature hard rock bands popular in the 80s such as Great White, Quiet Riot, Poison, Ratt and White Lion.

Sarzo 'Sets Record Straight' On Rhoads Documentary

Former QUIET RIOT / OZZY OSBOURNE and current DIO bassist Rudy Sarzo has issued a statement in response to a recent press release from Rudy's former QUIET RIOT bandmate Kevin DuBrow in which DuBrow explained the reasons behind his decision to withdraw his involvement in an upcoming documentary about late OZZY OSBOURNE / QUIET RIOT guitarist Randy Rhoads.

Said Sarzo: "In response to a recent press release from Kevin DuBrow, I'm compelled to address his statements regarding claims of inaccuracies in my book, 'Off the Rails', and towards an upcoming Randy Rhoads documentary now in production.

"I want to highly stress that Dakota Pictures' Randy Rhoads documentary that is being directed by Peter Margolis is not based on my book, 'Off the Rails', or any book for that matter. In no way is the film scripted. It is based on interviews from family members, childhood friends, former band members and fans who want to share their memories and express their feelings about Randy in this special tribute.

"The documentary's director, Peter Margolis, is an ex-student of Randy Rhoads. His life was truly influenced by Randy's music and friendship. The film has 100 percent support and participation of the Rhoads family, and from what I understand, Kelle Rhoads [Randy's brother] will be contributing to the soundtrack of the film.

"I sincerely hope that Kevin's animosity towards me, which he's been harboring for nearly 25 years, does not extend into this well-meaning project.

"In response to Mr. DuBrow's statement that my book is filled with inaccuracies, well, I have yet to see him back up his allegations. Besides, out of the 24 chapters in the book, there is only one that refers to my time with Randy in QUIET RIOT. The other 23 chapters are about my memories of Randy during my period in Ozzy's band."

With the blessings of the family of late OZZY OSBOURNE / QUIET RIOT guitarist Randy Rhoads, Dakota Pictures and director Peter Margolis began filming the "Randy Rhoads Documentary" on March 19 at the Mountain View Cemetery. In hopes to fully capture the significance of the 25th anniversary of Randy's passing, the filmmakers interviewed as many of Randy's fans as possible.

Dubrow Refuses To Take Part In Rhoads Documentary

GuitarWorld.com has learned that former QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow has refused to participate in an upcoming documentary about his former friend and QUIET RIOT bandmate Randy Rhoads.

DuBrow had originally agreed to be interviewed for the as-yet-untitled Rhoads film, according to director Peter Margolis, and even provided private photos and videos.

"Four days after this great conversation in which he was enthusiastic and funny, I get this e-mail that was almost like a form letter," Margolis tells Guitar World magazine. "And it reads, 'Thank you for offering to have me in the movie, but I am going to have to decline to participate. I wish you and the Rhoads family the best of luck.' It was so impersonal. I really don't know what made him change his mind."

With the blessings of the family of late OZZY OSBOURNE / QUIET RIOT guitarist Randy Rhoads, Dakota Pictures and director Peter Margolis began filming the "Randy Rhoads Documentary" on March 19 at the Mountain View Cemetery. In hopes to fully capture the significance of the 25th anniversary of Randy's passing, the filmmakers interviewed as many of Randy's fans as possible.

For more information, visit the film's MySpace page.

In 1982, Rhoads, the then-lead guitarist for OZZY OSBOURNE, and two others were killed at Flying Baron Estates, just outside Leesburg, Florida, when their small plane struck Osbourne's tour bus, then crashed into a mansion.

The Beatles Go Metal?

On October 24, 2006, Restless Records will release "Butchering The Beatles" — featuring the biggest, the baddest, the heaviest all-star line-up ever assembled to honor what is arguably the greatest band ever — THE BEATLES. All-in-all, over 50 internationally known recording artists bring their unique bone-crushing slant to these remarkable songs. Produced by Grammy award-winning producer/guitarist Bob Kulick and ace engineer Brett Chassen, "Butchering The Beatles" features 12 new, ass-kicking versions of THE BEATLES' chart-topping hits, including "Hey Jude", "I Feel Fine" and "Day Tripper", plus the more esoteric "Hey Bulldog", barked out by the legendary Alice Cooper and "Tomorrow Never Knows", uniquely interpreted by the iconic Billy Idol, alongside classic concept songs like "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" and "Magical Mystery Tour".

When asked by Guitar Player magazine what possessed him to go all metal on THE BEATLES, Bob Kulick stated that, "BEATLES songs are the Holy Grail. They're the best rock songs ever written. These new recordings are totally faithful, yet completely different. Billy Gibbons singing 'Revolution' or (MOTÖRHEAD frontman) Lemmy singing 'Back In The USSR' are not exactly Paul McCartney or John Lennon. And of course, the guitar solo sections were lengthened to accommodate all the artists' solo styles."
