RIP Kevin DuBrow

I am rather shocked to hear that Kevin DuBrow, the lead singer of one of my all time favorite bands, Quiet Riot, has been found dead from unknown causes at his home in Las Vegas Nevada.

DuBrow, 52, was found dead at about 5.20pm on Sunday, a spokeswoman for the Clark County Coroner's Office said. An autopsy would be conducted to determine the cause of death.

Quiet Riot, which was founded in the mid-1970s, topped the Billboard charts in 1983 with the album Metal Health, spurred on by the massive hit single Cum on Feel the Noize, which was a cover song originally preformed by Slade from 1973.

Metal Health (bang your head) was a particular favorite song of mine, in fact the whole album and later releases are brilliant. This is a real shame.

RIP Kevin DuBrow
