ABOUT Quiet Riot
QUIET RIOT continues their historic journey in 2015 with Metal Health founding member Frankie Banali who is joined by QUIET RIOT veteran bassist Chuck Wright and QUIET RIOT guitarist Alex Grossi from their most stable lineup, and in 2017 welcomed vocalist James Durbin the season ten finalist on American Idol.
QUIET RIOT will be releasing their latest album of all new original music this summer featuring James Durbin (Vocals) Frankie Banali (Drums) Alex Grossi (Guitar) and Chuck Wright (Bass).
QUIET RIOT is a rock & roll phenomenon. Famously described as the first heavy metal band to top the pop chart at #1 on Billboard magazine, the Los Angeles quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album Metal Health.
The story of QUIET RIOT begins in 1980 when Kevin DuBrow formed a new band under his own name, working with Frankie Banali and a variety of musicians over the next few years before signing with Pasha/CBS Records, reverting back to the QUIET RIOT moniker, and entering the studio with new guitarist Carlos Cavazo and bassist Chuck Wright to start work on a new album. The year was 1982 and, following Randy Rhoads’ well-documented death, former henchman Rudy Sarzo left Ozzy, replacing Chuck Wright who is the bass player on record for both the “Metal Health” and “Don’t Wanna Let You Go” tracks, to complete the lineup and sessions for what would become 1983’s Metal Health. Driven by the irresistible double whammy of the title track’s muscular bass line and a raucous rendition of the old Slade chestnut “Cum on Feel the Noize,” the album stormed up the U.S. charts, duly reaching the number one spot and going platinum five times over in the process at that time. The sales of Metal Health has now exceeded the 10 million mark worldwide to date.

ABOUT Culture Shock – Clothing and Records
In 2006, Culture Shock was first opened in Rockford, IL as a tiny midwest shop to find all-things-unique inspired by music, arts and culture. Throughout the years, it has grown and evolved into the headquarters for locally and independently-made merchandise/clothing, funky gifts and accessories, and kitschy housewares.
Culture Shock is now widely known as a community-focused hybrid of half-boutique and half-record store, carrying over 40 locally-owned companies. While carrying a large, diverse and well-curated selection of new/used vinyl records, the shop also boasts an impressive collection of vintage audio equipment.
Skyler and Lauren, the store’s owners, pride themselves on loving their community, music and forming connections and friendships with all of their customers, leading their Culture Shock team to do the same. Stop by Culture Shock and say hello today!
