The album was produced by Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses, Rockstar Supernova) with additional production by underground LA producer Matt Starr, and will be available worldwide starting September 25. Legendary Los Angeles rock station 95.5 KLOS exclusively debuted ‘Bury You’, the first track released off of the album, to an overwhelming response in June of 2012.
Entertainment One (Bush, Chickenfoot, Black Label Society) will be distributing the CD in the US.
Liberty n’ Justice is pleased to announce the release of there newest single “Your Memory Just Won’t Do”. It features David Cagle, Alex Grossi (Quiet Riot) & Cj Snare (Firehouse) and was co-written by LNJ leader Justin Murr, Cagle, & Snare. The song was all so produced, mixed by,& mastered by Snare. Artwork was done by Mark Allen Lanoue.This is an itunes exclusive and will not be released on any other LNJ albums. LNJ’s 28 song opus “The Cigar Chronicles” still has a 2012 release date.
After the tragic passing of co-founding Quiet Riot singer Kevin DuBrow in 2007, many figured that the band was over. But while going through the vaults of vintage video material for an upcoming documentary of the band’s history, the spark was reignited once more for drummer Frankie Banali to kick QR back in gear. The easy part was filling the guitar and bass slots – as former members Chuck Wright (bass) and Alex Grossi (guitar) promptly signed on. However, having to fill DuBrow’s large shoes was no small task.
A longtime fan of heavy metal, singer Mark Huff came to Banali’s attention while fronting a California-based Van Halen tribute band (that focused on the “Sammy Hagar era”). A true Cinderella story, Huff auditioned via a cattle call audition, promptly blew Banali away, and got the gig. After getting the blessing from DuBrow’s mother to carry on with Quiet Riot (and to celebrate her son’s music), the group was ready to rock once more.
Quiet Riot hit mega-success with their first-ever US release in 1983, the classic ‘Metal Health.’ Spawning two hit singles that have gone on to become synonymous with heavy metal – “Cum On Feel the Noize” and “Metal Health” – the ‘Metal Health’ album went on to become the first-ever metal US debut to hit the #1 spot on the Billboard album charts, and resulted in a solid year of sold-out arena shows and non-stop MTV video airplay. However, it was the DuBrow-Banali-Wright-Grossi line-up that proved to be DuBrow’s favorite touring line-up (and also, most stable).
Quiet Riot is currently firming up plans for a full U.S. tour – their first in three years. And with the aforementioned documentary on the horizon, and the band’s music being used in hit films (‘The Wrestler,’ ‘Tropic Thunder’), video games (‘Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80’s’), and even musicals (‘Rock of Ages’) – as well as QR being name-checked in songs by Weezer and Ben Folds – Quiet Riot remains a major force in heavy metal. And soon, you will get a chance to bang your head once more to Quiet Riot, at a concert venue near you!
Please visit Quiet Riot’s website, where you hear classic Quiet Riot songs recorded with Mark Huff on vocals. (HRH Note: They sound great! You gotta check this out!!)
Adler’s Appetite, the band led by former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler — has finished recording and mixing its new single, “Alive”, with longtime friend and producer Anthony Focx (Vince Neil, Buckcherry). The group is planning on debuting the song live as part of its summer tour, which will kick off Friday, July 9 in Redondo Beach, California.
“We are really excited to be moving forward with original material,” says Adler’s Appetite guitarist Alex Grossi. “I think people are really going to like the direction we are going in.”
The band — which includes guitarists Alex Grossi (ex-Quiet Riot) and Michael Thomas (Faster Pussycat), bassist Chip Z’nuff (Enuff Znuff) and vocalist Rick Stitch (Ladyjack) — plans to release the song worldwide in conjunction with Adler’s tell-all biography, “My Appetite For Destruction: Sex, Drugs & Guns N’ Roses”, which is set for a July 27 release through HarperCollins.
Steven Adler will sign copies of his tell-all biography, “My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N’ Roses”, at Bookends in Ridgewood, New Jersey on Wednesday, July 28 at noon.

Friday night Adler’s Appetite came to Cincinnati’s Riverstar Entertainment Complex to unleash their renditions of Guns N’ Roses awesome tunes. The band features former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler, Chip Z’nuff (Enuff Z’nuff) on bass, Rick Stitch (Ladyjack) on vocals, Michael Thomas (Faster Pussycat) and Alex Grossi (Quiet Riot) on guitar.
Local bands The Mighty Swine, and A Nervous Wreck opened the show. The Mighty Swine played a cool set of original tunes. A Nervous Wreck did a good job getting the crowd revved up with a bunch of cover tunes from the bands Poison, Ratt, L.A. Guns and more.
Adler’s Appetite hit the stage about 11:oo P.M. and played a great set of tunes covering the Guns N’ Roses albums, “Appetite for Destruction”, as well as the “Use Your Illusion” albums.
Rick Stitch may not be Axl Rose, but he did a good job signing these songs. I was pretty impressed with the guitar tandem of Alex Grossi and Michael Thomas as well. Adler’s Appetite may not be anything more than a glorified cover band, but at least Steven Adler is trying to keep the Guns N’ Roses music alive and well. Until Axl Rose gets his head out of his ass and reunites the class G N’ R linuep, this is as good as it gets!
