Former Quiet Riot bassist Rudy Sarzo has announced his return to the band after a gap of 18 years.
Sarzo confirmed the news during an appearance on SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk” program.
“I am returning home, going home to Quiet Riot in the beginning of 2022, next year,” he said in the interview with Eddie Trunk.
Sarzo explained that his return was prompted by a request by Quiet Riot founding member Frankie Banali‘s wife Regina after his death due to pancreatic cancer.
“After Frankie passed away, I went over to Regina’s house, and we talked, and she expressed to me that Frankie wanted me to come back to the band, that he wanted to have a founding member there in the band. So, we talked about that,” the bassist said.
He added, “I had to do that. So, the time came when I was ready to accept the reality, that it’s our responsibility, of us left behind, to carry on with the legacy and celebrate it. So that’s when I decided. I said, ‘Okay, it’s time for me to come home.'”
