After 18 years away, bassist Rudy Sarzo is re-joining Quiet Riot. Sarzo shared the news during an interview with SiriusXM’s Eddie Trunk, revealing that he’ll join up with the band in 2022. So why is Sarzo returning? He says it was the last wish of late Riot drummer Frankie Banali, who died of cancer in 2020.
He says Banali’s wife told him Frankie’s last wish was “to have a founding member there in the band”. Sarzo said that made him decide “Okay, it’s time for me to come home.”
What’s the ‘definitive’ Quiet Riot lineup?
