BLACK SABBATH drummer Bill Ward has issued the following statement regarding the death of QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow:
"On Monday, November 26th, I was saddened and shocked to hear the CNN news report announcing the death of Kevin DuBrow.
"Sincere condolences to Kevin's family and friends. We shall make an announcement of his passing on our Christmas radio show on December 8th, and also dedicate the show, in part (as we sadly do far too often these days,) to Kevin's family. In January, during our metal show, we'll play two QUIET RIOT songs as an acknowledgement to Kevin's work.
"His voice was like no other — an original artist aligned to passion, mayhem and verse."
Ward's monthly radio show, "Rock 50", airs on WPMD, a college radio station at Cerritos College in California.
