Being able to go to The Canyon to see a band that was so huge in the 80s was awesome.  The place was packed without forty- and fifty-somethings that were ready to rock.

 

The line-up is Bobby Blotzer on the drums, Stephen Pearcy on vocals (saw him solo last year with Bobby guesting), Juan Croucier on bass, Warren DeMartini and Carlos Cavazo on lead guitar.    Carlos is a great addition to the band.  As a shredder in Quiet Riot back in the 80s, he does a fine job opposite Warren DeMartini.

They covered material from quite a few of their albums and they played a lot of the songs that the crowd wanted to hear.  Those old riffs are classic.  And they played better than I thought they would.    It wasn’t the best concert ever, but it was a fun time and was definitely a rocking Friday at The Canyon.  Here’s to 80s metal.
