True, when saying original, I meant the classic lineup.

I think it was Showtine that did a great documentary about the issues associated with finding a new lead vocalist.  Great program.  The one replacement was forgetting the lyrics, etc.

At this point, it's just a cover band.  Same thing Bobby Blotzer is doing with Ratt.

Frankie wasn't an original either. There's no original members in QR left after Kevin died. That said, the band that tours now is more legit QR than a band like Lynyrd Skynyrd these days. Frankie was in the "classic" QR lineup, the Metal Health version.  Chuck Wright who plays bass has been with QR on and off since probably 1980, he actually played and sang backup on part of the Metal Health album and has probably overall been their longest tenured bass player..plus, he's a bad motherfucker on bass. Alex Grossi has been playing guitar with them since the early 2000's...
My only beef with them is they had a GREAT replacement singer in Scott Vokoun back like 5 years ago, dude sounded just like Kevin, brought a lot of energy to them, musically they were top-notch, then Frankie I think sort of dismissed him and put in scab singer to the stars Jizzy Pearl, they sound NOTHING like Quiet Riot now, they just sound like a genric bar band...
THIS band, with Vokoun singing actually had me wanting to see them next time they came around...it's not Quiet Riot but they were a fun band and a close replication to the classic era:

I thought the Puddle of Mudd incident was earlier this year, not this week?

There have been at least 2 dozen Puddle of Mudd incidents since the middle of last year.  You're thinking of a different one.

I was going to take him if he was under 40, but he's 43.  But he's a good choice anyway.

That's the way it is for most acts now as far as I am aware. I saw a price list a few years back for acts the Casino here was trying to bring in for an outdoor concert and their appearance fee was guaranteed regardless of revenue generated.

Some of these bands have been drawing flies for years now though, so I imagine that the guarantee is pretty damn low.  I'm sure the smaller clubs are operating under the premise of just getting a few people in the doors to sell them drinks.  

Last night I saw Metal Church, a second tier "New Wave of British Heavy Metal" band even in their prime in the '80s.  They were playing B.B. King's.  So trying to do the math on this.  

There was a local opener from the Bronx that went on first, 5 guys in the band, maybe 50 people in the building at that point.  Could they have really gotten paid anything at all, or maybe this was a "pay to play" gig just to get themselves stage time in cool venue.  

Next was the "national opener" who are going around for the whole tour, but no one knows them.  5 guys in that band, maybe 150 people in the crowd at that point.  Can't imagine how much each guy there could be paid.

Then Metal Church came out, the place "filled up" to 350 people or so.  5 guys in that band that need to be paid.  Rowdy crowd, a mosh pit, everyone drinking even though it's a Monday night (and looking at the crowd, I don't think too many have a job to wake up to anyway).  So at $9 a beer I guess they made some money, but they have to pay rent in Times Square so how many beers do they need to sell to keep the lights on?  

350 people paying $20 a ticket is $7,000.  If everyone averages 3 beers (which is doubtful) that's an other $9,500.  So out of about $16,500 they have to justify 1/30th of the rent, paying the waiters/bartenders/security, all utilities for the evening, and still pay out the bands.  I don't see anyone making money off of this.    



The headline band is almost definitely making a few grand in guaranteed money. Smaller bands playing clubs can havr have a few grand in guarantee. They're making something, though not getting rich. The promoters are probably losing their ass though

Lucky bastard. New record is great. I'd love to see them on this tour but they aren't coming near me. But I noticed on their FB page when they post a pic of the singer and guitarist outside of B.B. Kings, they were in front of a big tour bus and I questioned then how much money they're truly making and how they're able to afford that bus.

My buddies, BrokenByTheBurden got to open for them a few years back. Said they were great. Kind of wish I had gone. I think it was in Lake Charles, LA.

Yeah, the sad thing is that I liked their first breakthrough album a lot and would have definitely caught them here if these crazy reports hadn't come out.  Sucks. Hope the guy gets his life in order because that's fucked up.
