Kevin DuBrow, R. I. P.

Even an old guy like me remembers the cover of that #1 album.

Truly the Paris Hilton of heavy metal.

While Quiet Riot was on the low end of the spectrum of heavy metal, comparing DuBrow to Paris Hilton seems a little harsh. At least no one I knew broke out into gales of laughter when DuBrow and musician were used in the same sentence.
