Original QUIET RIOT Bassist, RANDY RHOADS' Brother Join Ohio's ALEISTER WILD

July 11, 2008

Bassist Kelly Garni, who was one of the founding members of QUIET RIOT, and keyboardist Kelle Rhoads, brother of late OZZY OSBOURNE/QUIET RIOT guitarist Randy Rhoads, have joined the Ohio-based progressive metal band ALEISTER WILD.

Commented Kelly: "Did either of us ever think we'd be doing this again? Hell no! But, we had such a good time, and the band was so good, we joined on the spot. What's cool is, these guys aren't trying to be rock stars (neither are we!). They pretty much play only for the military and that's it. We are putting together a small tour in Ohio to tighten the nuts and bolts, and then we go to Iraq for a month.

"It's all heavy metal as to the type of music. Go on YouTube and search out OPETH 'Porcelain Heart' video. That's where we're headed musically.

"I'm already talking with a couple different labels. Small ones, of course. Like I said, this ain't about being a rock star. It's fun for us, and helps the troops get by over there, and both of us can't wait to get there. Our singer is so cool, me and Kelle just sat back and watched him all the time; he's insane! He sings that growl stuff, but then he can go all Halford on you in a second. But overall, he's hilarious and will say anything to anybody. That's what we liked most about him.

"This is a good thing to come into both of us Kell's lives. We both felt a whole lot younger after this experience. We're hooked. Again."
