I admit owning "Metal Health" on Cassette when it came out.  In retrospect, they really sucked ass.  Maybe not as bad as Krokus, but more than Dokken.

Edit-on a related note, I bought an LP in a Greenwich Village record store on Bleecker Street in 1983 (it may have been Bleecker Bob's but I'm not certain) and it was titled "Quiet Riot II".  It was the band in 1978 dressed completely queer and portrayed with the UCLA Bruins in the locker room.   I bought it because I was a big Randy Rhoads fan.  I think I paid $15 for it then and it was new.  I wonder what that is worth now, as I still have it.

:D 
From a music perspective (the dead singers vocals, for example) I'd agree, though Randy Rhoads worst shit is better than almost anybody elses best.  However, the point is that I've never seen this album anywhere and think it's extremely rare.  There has to be some money-rolling old metalhead (Rossi?) who would pay big for it.

Metal Health was a really good tape.  It retrospect it may not hold up, but a lot of music doesn't.  I thought QR put out a few good songs post Metal Health.

Story was Kevin Dubrow (sp) pissed off a lot of other bands, and burned a lot of bridges.  Bands refused to tour with them, so QR shit canned him.

Anyone know more about that?

That was the obituary I read on CNN.com yesterday but I honestly lost complete touch with those guys shortly after I retired my circa-1983 "Joe Elliott" Union-Jack tank top.
