Former QUIET RIOT Drummer Comments On GUITAR ONE Rock Covers List

Former QUIET RIOT drummer Frankie Banali has issued a statement in response to the news that the group's cover of SLADE's "Cum On Feel the Noize" was selected by Guitar One magazine as the top rock cover of all time.

In a posting to his official web site, Frankie wrote: "It is so nice and so rare to have the often-maligned QUIET RIOT as well as our overly criticized version of 'Cum On Feel The Noize' recognized in such a way as it has by Guitar One magazine. The funny thing is that the drum track was the first and only take as we were totally unprepared to record the song that day. Kevin (DuBrow - vocals) did an outstanding vocal against his 'better' judgment, and along with Carlos (Cavazo - guitars) and Rudy (Sarzo - bass), it all just seemed to work. It's great to be in the company of such great artists as JIMI HENDRIX, VAN HALEN, STEVIE RAY VAUGHN, GUNS N' ROSES etc., but to come in at number one is truly gratifying. I am happy to have been a part of QUIET RIOT and of our recordings along with Kevin DuBrow, Carlos Cavazo and Rudy Sarzo, the 'Metal Health'-era members of the band."
