DubrowLas Vegas Metro Police have confirmed to TMZ that 52-year-old Kevin Dubrow, lead singer for 80's metal band Quiet Riot, was found dead in his Las Vegas home.

We're told one of Dubrow's neighbors found the singer Sunday around 5:20 PM. The Clark County Coroner confirms to TMZ that they are currently examining Dubrow's body to try to determine the cause of death.

Fellow band member Frankie Banali posted this message on his website: "I can't even find words to say. Please respect my privacy as I mourn the passing and honor the memory of my dearest friend, Kevin DuBrow."

Quiet Riot was the first metal band to top the Billboard charts and are perhaps best known for their cover of "Cum on Feel the Noize"

How sad. My condolences to his family and friends.

To commentor #8 - You really have to be a pathetic and severely empty person to wish people dead. Karma, my friend, karma.

I did like the Come on Feel the Noise song, but, alas, they were a one hit wonder. Still, a good hit.

For all the nasty commenters out there: There are far worse things than death, may you all find them (or they find you) soon.
