After four years in the making, a new documentary on Quiet Riot will soon be available for people to watch. The documentary, Quiet Riot: Well Now You're Here, There's No Way Back, will premiere on Showtime on January 29th. The documentary tells the story of the LA hard rockers, who were able to hit it big in 1983 with the release of the classic Metal Health album. It also documents the story of drummer Frankie Banali as he tries to put together a new version of Quiet Riot, almost three years after the passing of original singer Kevin DuBrow. The movie will also see a DVD and iTunes release on May 19th.
I'm pretty excited to see this movie. The documentary started out as a Kickstarter project, which I did post a blog on back in September 2010. I donated some money to the Kickstarter project and this is the final product. The only thing that concerns me is that the trailer seems to show that the movie will be a little more about the group reuniting without Kevin. Still, I think it looks really great and I'm happy to have had a part in helping this movie be made.
