Blabbermouth is reporting Kevin DuBrow, the suspender-wearing lead singer of Quiet Riot, was found dead at his home in Las Vegas over the weekend. Quiet Riot was the first metal band to have its debut album hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts when Metal Health–featuring a cover of Slade’s “Cum On Feel The Noize,” which was a staple of old-school MTV–knocked the Police’s Synchronicity out of the top spot in 1983. The band was still releasing albums and touring, and they played a set at the Rocklahoma festival over the summer. DuBrow was 52.
