While I never liked him or any of the music he did, I don't think anyone should die alone in their house after doing lines of cocaine all by themselves. :(


Very well said, Nicole, I agree 100%.

I agree.......a very sad, pathetic way to die.

Any evidence to say he was alone prior to taking the cocaine.It sounds like he was in party mode to me.Who takes coke for the hell of it sitting in the house with no company.It's a shame to think that he was like a typical dope head doing lines on his lonesome ??..But another rock star snubbed out over drug abuse such a pity.RIP Kev

Im new to this forum, so my belated reply is probably too late, but I was genuinelly gutted at Kevins passing.
I know he rubbed up the suits in the music biz the wrong way and had a supposed ego, but he loved the fans.
I got Metal Health on US import in 1983 mainly because of the Randy Rhoads/Rudy Sarzo connection, but as soon as I heard it, it blew me away totally...this was well before the MTV video of Cum on feel the Noize.
When it was announced they were supporting Judas Priest at Birmingham in late 1983, I got tickets to both shows and can honestly say, they blew Rob Halford and co off stage.........shades of Van Halen and Black Sabbath in 1978.
I chanced my arm going to the Holiday Inn where they were staying and couldn't believe it when I saw DuBrow and co at the bar. I politelly asked if they would sign my album and jesus, they invited me to join them!!
I spent over an hour in their company, and although Rudy Sarzo was very introvert, Frankie Banali and Kevin DuBrow made up for it. It was the first time I'd heard of Vodka and cranberry juice as well as the lads knocked it back. Great night!!
A few months later, they headlined their own tour and ticket sales were poor with no more than 90 fans at the now defunct Birmingham Odean, but they hit the stage at 100mph and gave 110%. My mate and I went to the hotel again and believe me, they remembered me by name from when they were here before....now that knocked me on my arse!! We talked for ages and nothing was too much trouble for the band. Kevin knew they had peaked and dropped in a little under 6 months, but his enthusiasm and charisma were a credit to him.
We were invited to the soundcheck and given a laminate back stage pass and Carlos Cavazo showed me the Metal Health riff at the soundcheck and gave me his white personalised guitar pick. Frankie Banali wanted to get a taxi to 'nearby' Worcester to pay his respects to John Bonhams gravesite.....serious!
I know if there is a God and a heaven, Kevin DuBrow will be playing with Randy Rhoads again

I'm late getting a reply on this too, 4 years later and it seems strange to think of him dead. He was a vibrant living connection to Randy Rhoads and a bygone era of Heavy Metal/the L.A. music scene.

Bad musician, good musician. Coke overdose or not, he was a human being. One who seemed to be smiling all the time and enjoying life. R.I.P.

The odd thing for me is, when i hear Quiet Riot the Randy Rhoads years now its almost as much about Kevin for me as it is about Randy. I miss Kevin Dubrow.

I found in my storage unit a very rare album featuring Kevin doing a cover of "Whole Lotta Love" with a megaphone..The album is called "Arena Rock." Has anyone else heard it?..I ripped it to MP3, and aired it on my radio show.

Kevin was a nice guy and a lot of fun..once I brought cookies to a Quiet Riot show and said Kevin demanded Brownies...so I set him up on a date with my girlfriend who used to be a girl scout just for laughs.. :P
