Rudy Sarzo is, without question, one of the most legendary bassists in hard rock/heavy metal...having played with such influential acts as, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Dio and, the band who really introduced him to the world, Quiet Riot.
And with the passing late last week of QR drummer Frankie Banali (who, more than just a friend and bandmate to Rudy, was a true brother), we had the honor of talking to Rudy today to reminisce about Frankie...who over the years, became a true friend to us here on the show.
Simply stated...Frankie Banali was truly one of the greats in the music industry...apart from his work with QR, WASP and so many others...he was, at his core, an amazingly kind human being, And we here on the Morning Show will miss him very much.
