It's been confirmed that Kevin DuBrow has died, aged 52. His body was found by friends yesterday.
The news broke this morning in a post on The Vegas Eye by Michael Politz, who counted DuBrow as "one of my closest friends".
Confirmation of DuBrow's passing has come from Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Benali in an email sent to The Metal Circus in Spain, and from bassist Kelly Garni on the Randy Rhoads tribute site www.randyrhoads.tk
. In his post Garni asks for everyone to resist commenting or speculating on DuBrow's death until concrete information is given.
At this time it is not known how DuBrow died. He recently celebrated his 52nd birthday in New Orleans, attending the Cult's show at the House of Blues.
