In Passing: Quiet Riot’s Kevin DuBrow dead at 52

Metafilter: cum on feel the noizQuiet Riot’s Kevin DuBrow dead at 52.

It was Quiet Riot on Solid Gold that introduced me (well.. re-introduced me) to Metal and Hard Rock. His MySpace page is filling up with condolences.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that Quiet Riot deserves the evolutionary credit for 80s Metal, from Ozzy’s 80s success, to Guns N’ Roses.

Thank you Kevin DuBrow.
