I had the privilege of going to the Brixton Club in Redondo Beach last night to watch one of my all time favorite bands...... Quiet Riot.
We got there a little early, but managed to get a booth right by the stage which was a bonus. The opening bands were very good and when it was their turn Quiet Riot ROCKED.
The previous lead singer Kevin DuBrow sadly passed on in 2007 and it was thought that the band was over, but no..... Along came new lead singer Mark Huff, who with the blessing of the DuBrow family, has managed to take the reigns and do it well. He sounds very similar, in fact if you didn't know you might not be aware that the lead singer has changed. I look at it like he is the Brian Johnson to Bon Scott and AC/DC. Bon is missed, but Brian managed to take it to another level. I think that Quiet Riot is going places with Mark Huff as the lead singer, he even has the rock star look.
Frankie Banali who is the drummer took the microphone 1/2 way through the performance and made a moving tribute to Kevin DuBrow upon which time Mark and the boys played Thunderbird with excellence.
They played all of the brilliant songs. Slick Black Cadillac, Cum on feel the noize, Metal Health, Ma Ma we're all crazy and the list goes on. It was a very brilliant show. I thoroughly recommend watching Quiet Riot live and if you get the opportunity to go to the Brixton in Redondo... Do it.......
For those of you in NZ. Quiet Riot is to be playing at the Powerstation in Mt Eden on May 2nd... DON'T MISS THE SHOW. Rock on Quiet Riot.....
