Next year, Quiet Riot fans (and metal fans world-wide) will probably be banging their heads in response to a new documentary in the works.
Actress and filmmaker Regina Russell, who also happens to be engaged to Quiet Riot veteran drummer Frankie Banali, is hard at work finishing up a long-form labor of love about the legendary group.
"Now You're Here, There's No Way Back: The Quiet Riot movie", is a definitive look at a seminal heavy metal band that topped the charts with the first #1 heavy metal album (1983's Metal Health) which sold over 10 million copies worldwide, and paved the way for successful metal bands like, Motley Crue, Poison, Dokken, Ratt and Bon Jovi, turning the 1980's into the decade of heavy metal hair bands.
The band still tours with new singer Mark Huff (formerly of Van Halen tribute band 5150) who replaced original vocalist Kevin DuBrow who died of a drug overdose in 2007.
The hope is to have the movie ready to be released through the film festival circuit next year while seeking a theatrical distributor.
