Quiet Riot Dump Singer Mark Huff
January 12, 2012
Quiet Riot has parted ways with vocalist Mark Huff, announcing that former Montrose singer Keith St. John will handle vocal duties during upcoming tour dates.
Huff, who took over for the late Kevin DuBrow in September of 2010, said in a Facebook post, “As I sit in hospital … wait for my brain surgery … I have been let go from Quiet Riot. And nobody’s had balls to tell it to my face. Interesting … the rock ‘n’ roll business. I have to read the news in a post that’s not even directed to me? … WTF? … Let me tell all my friends … don’t count me out … Watch what happens. It’s obvious what I ever meant to this situation … I deserve better treatment … Don’t worry about me … Worry about your own bad selves. And I am gonna take the high road … I have so much shit I could speak … Stay tuned, my friends … and if you arent … delete me.”
Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali countered by saying, “With regards to Mark Huff: My policy has always been not to air out the dirty laundry in public. That policy remains the same even in light of those who chose to make accusations. The fact is that Mr. Huff’s medical condition had nothing to do with the decision that was made though it is unfortunate that it comes at such a time. His wife assured me that Mark would be home this week, and as legal protocol dictated, a certified letter was sent informing Mark of the decision that was made and why it was made. This was days ago. The content of that letter is a private matter unless Mr. Huff decides to make the reason for his dismissal made public which I believe would be counterproductive for him. I will not go tit for tat with this issue. If certain person wish to villainies me, that is their prerogative.”
