QUIET RIOT brings back singer JIZZY PEARL

September 9, 2019

According to Frankie Banali Facebook Page  Jizzy Pearl will be returning and replacing James Durbin as lead vocalist in Quiet Riot.




On Pearl's original departure from the band in 2016


During an Oct 2016 appearance on "Trunk Nation", Eddie Trunk's SiriusXM channel Volume , QUIET RIOT drummer Frankie Banali stated about Pearl's departure from the group: "I don't want people to think that all of a sudden this just happened and there was some breakup. Everything happens for a reason."


He continued: "Jizzy gave notice several months ago — maybe four months ago, five months ago. It was decided that it was beneficial to both sides of the equation to continue out the year — financially, [with] consideration for Jizzy, and for me, being able to do the dates that were contracted. So I think it worked out for everyone."


Banali added: "I was actually going to go public [with Jizzy's exit] a week before [QUIET RIOT's appearance on] the [Monsters Of Rock] cruise, and then all of a sudden I came to the realization that if I go public before the cruise, I'm gonna be sequestered on a ship for four days, and the only people that are there are fans and press. And so I didn't want those dates, those two QUIET RIOT shows, to revolve around who's leaving and why; I wanted people to concentrate on the music. But as soon as we docked, 'Boom!' But it was already in place. I mean, I was gonna do it a week before."
