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.

How can you heartless people be glad someone you don't even know died and make those horrid comments. I had the good fortune to meet Kevin and the rest of the band and I can tell you along with his band mates, kevin was kind hearted and compassionate for the less fortunate. we will continue to bang our heads to Quiet Riot on WCVS-FM and I send my thoughts and prayer to his loved ones left behind. Fly to the Angels Kevin.

Ah, too bad! RIP, Kevin. I hope he knew what a big part of metal history he was. Though they weren't my favorite band, they were significant in metal history.

Love them or Hate them, it doesn't really much matter, Quiet Riot lived the Rock and Roll dream, played hard and partied harder. Sorry to hear of Kevin's death, 52 is way to young to go.

My husband would blare that song in his Impala while we were dating. He thought he was so cool in his Dio shirt. I never told him he looked like a dork. 20 years ago!

I loved this group! they had so much energy ! Gone are the days of great bands! Maybe after britney and rap music we may again see a return of great ROCK bands like Quiet Riot! You will be missed my friend!

Kevin was a cool guy, a great entertainer, and put on a great show every time he took the stage. The people posting negative comments either didn't know him or didn't like his music or the band. It is sad that you would even think those things, let alone post them. You must be truly pathetic people to make such ignorant comments. Kevin was a great guy and I am saddened by his loss. My heart goes out to his friends and family. RIP.
