Hair Metal Icon Dead In Vegas

Kevin Dubrow, the lead singer of one of hair metal's pioneering groups Quiet Riot, was found dead in Vegas. Even though the group could be technically considered a one hit wonder with 1983's “Cum on Feel the Noize”, they are often credited along with Van Halen with making hair metal cool after their Metal Health album hit #1 on Billboard. That success opened the door for the scores of Aqua Net doused bands that followed throughout the 80's.
