Kevin DuBrow, the 52-year-old frontman of Quiet Riot, was found dead in a Las Vegas home November 25th.

The cause of death is pending an autopsy and toxicology results, according to Clark County coroner’s spokeswoman Samantha Charles.

Police Officer Jose Montoya said November 26th that there was no forced entry at the house and no suspicious circumstances. Police and coroner’s officials said a neighbor called police and paramedics to the residence.

Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali posted the following message on his official Web site: "I can’t even find words to say. Please respect my privacy as I mourn the passing and honor the memory of my dearest friend Kevin DuBrow."

The heavy metal group was best known for its 1983 cover of "Cum on Feel the Noize." The song was included on the band’s Metal Health, which was the first album by a metal band to hit No. 1 on the charts.

Quiet Riot’s last studio CD, Rehab, was released in October 2006 and DuBrow recorded his first solo album, In for the Kill, in 2004.

Quiet Riot, which had dates through December, has canceled the rest of its tour.
