Legendary Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali has succumbed to cancer aged 68. The HRH family last saw Frankie behind the sticks at HRH AOR in 2016, with the band fronted by Jizzy Pearl.
Dee Snider said on Twitter “He fought hard until the end. His playing and rock & roll spirit will live forever.”
Fello sticksman Mike Portnoy lamented “So saddened to hear of the passing of my drumming brother, Frankie Banali. He fought an incredibly brave battle against cancer and his strength and dignity was truly inspiring.”
