QUIET RIOT recently enlisted their friend and guitarist Billy Morris (ex-WARANT) to perform with them on selected live dates in the same capacity as he has done in the past.
QUIET RIOT parted ways with guitarist Tracii Guns (BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, ex-L.A. GUNS) less than a month after announcing his addition to the group. The split was attributed at the time to "the musical diversity of styles" which "would not work to our mutual satisfaction."
QUIET RIOT are currently in the studio in recording songs for their first new CD since the "Guilty Pleasures" album in 2001. An extensive tour is planned following the album's release.
