I remember hearing many years ago that only about 2000 copies of Quiet Riot I were pressed, does anyone know if that's correct? Also, how many copies of Quiet Riot II were actually pressed? It seems like the second album is not too difficult to find, and I wonder exactly how many of them were made. This is a question I've wondered about for many years now, so thank you in advance to whoever can enlighten me!

No takers? Did I even stump Ironface here? Okay, I'll try another one: Hey, I also always wondered what nationality Kevin DuBrow was, and all he would ever tell me was "American"! I thought DuBrow sounded French, but was never sure. Anyone know the answer to that one?!

Can't give ya an exact number, but around 2000 for QRI is probably close. As for II, it was more than Quiet Riot I-probably 5-10 thousand.

He was of Russian/Jewish descent.

*LOL*LOL* Van Halen III sold more copies than Quiet Riot II even had printed up though those sales were entirely fan curiosity. Van Halen 3 sold just over 500,000 copies I know which is bad for a band who had nothing but platinum and double platinum albums pretty much their whole career. Now what would I put on in my car, QR II or VH 3 on any given day and it's easily QR II. VH3 just sucks SO bad.

Thanks, Ironface. Yes, Van Halen III does wang the panoche rather heavily (a phrase my late brother coined for something that truly sucks). Listening to Eddie attempt to sing should have definitely made Kevin feel a helluva lot better about his vocals on the first 2 QR albums. I STILL think Kevin was at his best on QR II, though.

Yes, Patrick, Van Halen III bit the big one (ie-HORRIBLE) and that's without even mentioning Eddie's "vocal" disaster of "How Many Say I". +) *LOL*LOL* As for Kevin's vocal performance on "Quiet Riot II", I'd say, it was Kevin and he did a great job with what he had and it fit the songs. I quite liked his vocals on "Metal Health" and "Condition Critical" as well, knowing what Kevin's style was and I think he was pretty consistent with all of his releases from then on. However, if the song just totally sucked to begin with ( as did the entirety of VH III IMO) then no vocal performance could save it and QR did have a few really bad songs. But in the end, QR II stomps VH III, hands down! :wink:
