‘Metal Health’ drove him mad: R.I.P. Kevin DuBrow … he "had a mouth like an alligator!"
By 1983, he, drummer Frankie Banali, bassist Rudy Sarzo, and guitarist Carlos Cavazo (pictured at the right) were solidly established in the SoCal hair metal scene and enjoyed major MTV and rock chart success with the smash album Metal Health — which featured glammy remakes of Slade’s glammy ’70s hits “Cum on Feel the Noize” and “Mama Weer All Crazee Now.”
Quiet Riot suffered an endless rotation of unremarkable lineup changes and slogged around the club circuits through the late ’90s and 2000s. The latest lineup recently released an album titled Rehab. While he appeared to be balding in the mid-’80s, DuBrow must have invested in collection of curly-haired wigs or implants in recent years.
