Quiet Riot to continue on without drummer Frankie Banali
It should come as no surprise that Quiet Riot will be continuing even though drummer Frankie Banali recently passed away given that the band was able to successfully perform a number of shows without Banali in the line-up throughout 2019.
There is no word on who will be handling the managerial duties that Banali had been handling since 1993.
The following message was posted on Quiet Riot‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“QUIET RIOT – 2020/2021 Because life goes on!
It was Frankie Banali‘s wish that the band continue and we keep the music and the legacy alive.
Chuck Wright has been in the band off and on since 1981 and played not only on the song “Metal Health” but many other QUIET RIOT Albums. Alex Grossi has been in the band since 2004 touring and recording. Jizzy Pearl has been a member of the QUIET RIOT family since 2013 and Johnny Kelly has been doing a great job filling in on drums this past year with Frankie‘s blessing.
We are happy to have shows on the calendar with many more TBA and very much look forward to celebrating the history and legacy of QUIET RIOT with all of you in 2021 and Beyond…!!
More Tour Dates Added, More TBA….Stay Tuned…!!!
