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."
Watch QUIET RIOT "performing" the song "Party All Night" on a TV show in 1984:
