Today is the anniversary of several albums, good ones, but this one I picked just because it hit me hard when I was a kid. I had just moved to WSNC (two weeks in) when QRIII from Quiet Riot came out. I was a big fan of the band’s previous two albums, Metal Health and Condition Critical. I understand this didn’t have the same impact on most people and it really didn’t for me, but this one song, being one to have just gotten MTV two weeks prior, I loved this. I love hard rock with keyboards and this was there in abundance. I didn’t even bother looking for a cover as the video rocked my socks. I always loved Rudy Sarzo, but he was gone at this point and Chuck Wright was in. So, happy 33rd-anniversary QRIII. Enjoy!!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
