Fans Asked to Help Fund Quiet Riot Documentary

 Quiet Riot will be forever entrenched in metal history. The band reached the top of the Billboard chart with 'Metal Health,' marking the first time a metal band reached such achievement.

Now, Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali is hard at work on creating a full length documentary of the band's history. The documentary will focus on the band's rise to stardom in the 1980s and end with singer Kevin DuBrow's sudden death in 2007.

The video footage is from Banali's personal collection. The documentary will include never-before-seen interviews and backstage footage.

"The moment my friend Kevin DuBrow died, my life and career went from sixty to zero with his final breath," Frankie Banali commented via press statement. "But now, DuBrow and Quiet Riot will receive a much-deserved video retrospective, that will leave no stone unturned. Get ready to bang your head and feel the noize once more!"

While Banali has already invested money into the project, he's asking fans for help. The drummer is hosting an online fundraiser to raise cash. The money raised will directly go to completing the documentary and different pledge levels come with various perks. Click to become a backer by September 2nd.
