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.
