Former Quiet Riot bassist Rudy Sarzo is big supporter of what Frankie Banali doing with band
Ex-Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake and Dio bassist Rudy Sarzo was recently interviewed by Jimmy Kay for The Metal Voice.
Sarzo played on the following Quiet Riot releases: Metal Health (1983), Condition Critical (1984), Alive And Well (1999), Guilty Pleasures (2001), Live In The 21st Century (2003), Live & Rare Volume 1 (2005) and Live At The US Festival (2012). Wikipedia indicates that he was in the band for the following periods: 1978 to 1980, 1982 to 1985 and 1997 to 2003.
The 67 year old Sarzo was asked whether he would consider reuniting with Quiet Riot or do a one off to which the bassist advised (as transcribed by The Metal Voice with slight edits): “I have performed with Quiet Riot, just jumping in on one song. Frankie Banali [Quiet Riot drummer] is one of my oldest dearest friends, he has the best man at my wedding we are incredibly close. I am a big supporter of what Frankie is doing with Quiet Riot.”
Earlier this month, Frontiers Music Srl announced the formation of the new group Dream Child which consists of guitarist Craig Goldy (Dio, Giuffria, Dio Disciples, Resurrection Kings, Eisley/Goldy), Sarzo, drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio, Operation: Mindcrime), guitarist / keyboardist Wayne Findlay (MSG) and lead vocalist Diego Valdez (Helker).
Sarzo was asked by The Metal Voice about that current project. Sarzo advised: “Yeah it’s a project it’s great to be playing with my dear Dio band members Craig Goldy and Simon Wright and it was a great opportunity but my band that I am a member of is The Guess Who all the way from Canada.”
