Dude, this is wild. At the end of this post, you will find a video of a trailer for a Quiet Riot movie someone made.
Basically, what I took away from the video is that Quiet Riot spent all of their free time buried in groupie snatch. I mean, for crying out loud — there’s a part in the trailer where the Quiet Riot dudes are at a signing session, and hot chicks are just coming up and making out with them.
The end of the trailer is the best. I won’t ruin it for you, but that enthusiastic cheer almost gave me a raging one. The mere thought…anyways.
The trailer is three minutes long, and not the best production you’ve ever seen, but hang in there. It gets really, really good. The movie’s call “Well Now You’re Here There’s No Way Back — The Quiet Riot Story.” Not loving that title.
The synopsis for the film, which will be making the festival rounds next year, says that the “story follows Frankie Banali, a world-renowned drummer you probably remember from the ‘80s band Quiet Riot. As a single soccer dad in the suburbs, his long hair and tattoos frighten the neighbors, but to other drummers he’s a hero. His career took a major sideswipe when his singer Kevin Dubrow died in 2007. At a crossroads in his life, he must forge ahead and make a new life for himself and his daughter.
“This film takes a trip back through time to the decade of debauchery and decadence. Real home videos shot backstage, on the tour bus, in the recording studio, and in hotel rooms with one of the ‘80s top platinum-selling bands and most notorious bad boys. Never-before-seen footage from the milestones in Frankie’s long career in music and his personal life now. Funny and deeply personal and poignant exploration of Frankie’s longtime friendship with his bandmate Kevin Dubrow. The loss of his close friend and his career as he knew it, and his life after Kevin. Follow his journey at his current moment of truth. As he goes through the ups and downs of having to fill the void left by his singer and friend Kevin Dubrow and continue on with Quiet Riot.”
