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."
