Storyline

Narrated by Quiet Riot photographer, lighting designer, lyricist and friend, Ron Sobol, the film offers a gripping behind-the-scenes portrait of two close friends as they embark on an uphill quest for stardom . Using previously unseen images, rare video footage and period music, along with new and classic interviews, the movie chronicles the five year period (1975-1980) that Sobol was in the trenches with the band. This in depth examination documents in photos and on celluloid, the gradual rise of a Hollywood club band into international superstars. Sobol's unfettered access renders an intimate window into Quiet Riot's meteoric transformation from club band to national sensation. You'll witness the group in rehearsals, performing live onstage and revel in a bounty of behind-the-scenes clips capturing the band mates at play. It's a tale littered with all the earmarkings of a classic Hollywood epic--formidable struggles, triumph and heartbreak, world domination and unfathomable tragedy.... Written by Andrew Klein

My thoughts

We all know the name Quiet Riot it was a name that went around are neighborhood for years in the 70s, having some kind of relation with Randy and seeing that Ron Sobo famous photographer helped make this film along with Rudy Sarzo gave me more of a closeness to the film itself.

The band QR still goes on today but without the foundation of its original members setting the pace it would be just a plain documentary of a band, what these guys did for us as a whole and for metal bands everywhere has just sky rocketed. The interviews were sincere and on the mark its a must for any Randy Rhoads fan to view!
