Frankie Banali was the drummer for Quiet Riot, one of the heavy metal band’s classic hit-making line-up. Banali joined the band in 1982 and was the most consistent member—and the only one from the classic line-up still playing with the band. Quiet Riot had a big hit in 1983 with their cover version of the Slade song “Cum On Feel the Noize.” Banali also drummed with heavy metal band W.A.S.P., Billy Idol, and Faster Pussycat.
