Quiet Riot singer found dead in Las Vegas

Not that I was a fan of the band (or metal for that matter), but this does bring back memories of the early 80s when they topped both charts.

I'm trying to remember if Quiet Riot was ever the subject of a VH-1 Behind the Music special. I know a lot of the bands that were highlighted went into great detail about the drug abuse that was common in the rock scene then, and still is.

And much of it is eerily similar to the pro wrestling scene, in that you have a few of these musicians who remarked about the mistakes they made getting involved with drugs, yet you see the young musicians today doing them despite the warnings they are getting from the musicians who had been down that road and now see the error of their ways.

It's the entertainment industry, period. There is just more money to throw around in music. The uphills and downhills are the same.
