Come on feel the autopsy...

Cum on Feel Tha Noize was the reason I got into metal like 20 years ago, and his voice was so distinct. Youngsters love to lump Quite Riot in with "hair bands" and "butt rockers" but they had a huge mark on metal's history (of course I'm preaching to the choir for the most part here on this site).
R.I. freakin' P dude.
Christ, I just heard. Very saddened by this. He was a goof, but what an entertainer. I got to see them open up for Black Sabbath in 83 or 84 and they were fantastic. RIP man. The song Metal Health is still one of my favorites.
My songs....enjoy! (hopefully )
or for older stuff too, but slower downloads
I remember sitting in my bed with my hand on the record button just WAITING for Cum on feel the noize to get some airplay so I could record it!
Yeah thats the way we used to pirate music before cd's and mps'3, we recorded it on cassette tapes!
Then one night I caught it! I was dead asleep and got most of the song. . . . I was sooooo happy, I rewound and played that song like 455 times!
My mom wouldn't buy me the tape because it had one song named "Loves a *****"
I finally traded the hippy kid down the street for the tape. . . . ah man if mom ever found out! LOL!
I miss the hell out of those days!
Mom would see the demonic images on the cover, and say "no way."
I haven't checked yet, but are there any new details on Dubrow's death?
I wonder what the cause was, as determined by the coroner?
Maybe it was his fading Metal Health??
I used to have a tape with a whole episode of Metal Shop on it, the radio show on Westwood One hosted by Charlie Kendall.
The one thing my parents went nuts over, more my dad really, was Suicide Solution. He read the lyrics in my Tribute tab book and was trying to force me to throw it in the trash. Amist my tears and pleading, we agreed that I cut the song out. So I did, and I hid it in a folder amongs my guitar mags. As far as he knew, it went in the trash. I knew what the song was about then and understood, but he didn't care. Could've been because he liked to drink quite a bit himself back then. Thank God he finally stopped.....but just recently.
Sorry for the ramble.

Here's a statement from Kelly Garni (bassist on the first two QR records):
No need to state the obvious. First off I want to thank all of you who either called or emailed me. Im sorry I can't respond to them individually as it would be a huge endeavor. I also want to thank everyone who refrained from jumping to conclusions and starting rumors. This has been a very tramatic tradegy to me and because of the fireworks usually associated with Kevin, I was expecting an avalance of negativity that both me and Frankie usually have to deal with. And I'm happy to say that for the most part, everyone did nothing but express good feelings. Unfortunatley what negativity that did occur was internal and while inconviniate, I was able to handle.
On Sunday, while I was working I got a phone call from Kevin's home security company. It was at about 3:15 in the afternoon. I am the only one who gets a call when ever his alarm goes off and usually I go to his house and let the guards in to check things out. However, Kevin had had his front doors replaced a few weeks ago and I did not yet have a key so I told them to send the guards and if there was a problem I would go there and take care of it. They also told me that Kevins voice mail was full. That was the first sign of trouble to me. I got on the phone to frankie in LA and asked if Kevin was with him. He said no and that he hadn't talked to Kevin in about 10 days. He said he thought Kevin was with one of his girlfriends. From there, I started to track her down. I have never met her and only after Frankie gave me her name was I able to find her which was relativity easy. By now about 10 minutes had passed. She said that Kevin had missed Thanksgiving with her (one of 2 girls he was supposed to have thanksging with. Well, he IS Kevin) She said she had gone to his house and left him many messages without response and that she had a very bad feeling about this. Right then, my other phone rang. I have 3 phones in my house and little did I know soon all 3 would be ringing nonstop. I put the phone down on the table with girlfriend #2 still on the line and it was Frankie on the phone. He told me what had happened. I lost all composure at that point and told FB I would call him back. Now to the other phone where I had the unpleasnt task of telling #2 the news. Needless to say she freaked. GF#1 was Lark Williams who was in San Fran at the time. She was worried about Kevin as well and she had called a paramedic friend of hers to go check on Kevin. The guy happened to be very close to his house. With Lark on the phone, the guy went to Kevins and was looking into windows and told Lark he could see his keys on the counter. Lark told him to break in immediately. It was a very ballsy and good thing she did. The guy broke in (hence the call from the alarm co.) and found Kev. This all happened in about 20 minutes time. From there, police, fire, everybody was called. He was found in bed. I talked with a Detective who was there and they hadn't even removed Kevin yet. He said "We have found no signs of foul play and are ruling this an accidental death". Last I heard from Kevin's brother, there was going to be a service this Sunday in Corona del Mar, Ca. Kevin will be buried next to his father. But then I was told that the coroner was still not done so that was kind of up in the air. I have not heard from them since. Peter Margolis was one of the first people I called. I had had to tell the news to Kevins brother as well and I really didn't want to go through that again with others who are important in our lives. He was very kind was imediately saddened and said right off he wouldn't wish this on anybody. I read his statement and can say that he did in fact want to work out the differences between Kevin and himself. From here, I am not going to point out all the other things to you that people say when an icon dies. Kevin was what he was and he lived his life as such. To me, Kevin was my brother for 35 years. And like brothers, we had our diferences. But many many times over dinner, we discussed how great it was to be able to sit across from each and laugh about all the terrible things we said and did to each other. He was always there for me, and I was always there for him. The last time I saw him was on our mutually shared birthday, Oct 29, He gave me a big hug and a really great present. The best present though was the hug. I will miss him terribly. I pray that those who had issues with him don't take this opportunity to celebrate this. If you knew Kevin well enough to have a beef with him, then you knew him well enough to know he had a very good side to him as well. Thank you all for all your kindness. Please remember him for the one thing he wanted to be since he was born. A ROCKSTAR.
so many things to say here...
Meltking - You probably were equals.
Joneser - Metal Health, Pyromania, Shout at the Devil? Good times!
And as for you teeny bopper WASP Fans - Animal (**** Like A Beast). Now that's WASP the way it's supposed to be.
And as for Kevin, well, he could play the heck outta that black and white striped mikestand. Fly on, Thunderbird, fly!
Me-Me-ME METAL SHOP (*chainsaw sound*) The only show with TEETH!
Great stuff man, that show broke me into underground heavy metal and got my veins saturated in it! I have been disturbed and happy ever since!
Ahhh, the memories.
