Documentary On QUIET RIOT Drummer In The Works

July 15, 2010

Frankie Banali of QUIET RIOT opens his personal home video vaults and his life for a rockin' documentary.

Banali is a world-renowned drummer you probably remember from the '80s band QUIET RIOT. He was in the band for 27 years and the last 13 he was also the band's manager. His career took a major sideswipe when his singer Kevin Dubrow died three years ago.

As a single soccer dad in the suburbs, Frankie's long hair and tattoos frighten the neighbors, but to other drummers he's a hero. At a crossroads in his life, he must forge ahead and make a new life for himself and his daughter.

Featuring lots of never-before-seen home movies from QUIET RIOT's heyday, interviews with dozens of rock stars, deeply personal footage and a few surprise twists, this film takes a real journey back through time to the decade of debauchery and decadence. It contains real home videos shot backstage, on the tour bus, in the recording studio, and in hotel rooms with one of the '80s top platinum-selling bands and most notorious bad boys; never-before-seen footage from the milestones in Frankie's long career in music and his personal life now. It is a funny, and deeply personal and poignant exploration of Frankie's longtime friendship with his bandmate Kevin Dubrow, the loss of his close friend and his career as he knew it, and his life after Kevin.
