Did You Know?

Trivia

There is conjecture that the song title "Mean Streak" by Y&T is misspelled. While pressing of the album it appears does have it has two words, several compilations list it as "MeanStreak". So either way for it to be listed in the closing credits is acceptable. See more »

Goofs

Sally Steele (who runs the Vegas Rocks Awards show) states that Frankie Banali was the original drummer for Quiet Riot. This is incorrect; he was the classic drummer. The original drummer was Drew Forsyth. See more »

Great QR Documentary
21 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Had a great time at the premier of "Well Now You're Here, There's No Way Back". The movie was one of the best music documentaries I have seen. It was informative, sad and funny all at the same time. I am a Quiet Riot fan from the beginning,seeing them in Hollywood at the small clubs. I learned a little about the Quiet Riot members thing's that I didn't know. But I also was very entertained. (Maybe finally Chuck will get his recognition). It had a lot of laughing out loud moments. The scene's done with hidden camera's, caught some memorable funny and heartfelt moments. I can't wait for the DVD to come out. I will definitely purchase it. I just hope it is not cut apart and made smaller.
