Carlos Cavazo, former Quiet Riot guitarist said that “it’s stupid” for the band to continue without drummer Frankie Banali.
Speaking to “Waste Some Time With Jason Green”, Carlos shared his opinion about the band continuing without the classic lineup:
“I think it’s stupid for somebody to do that, really. It doesn’t make sense to me.”
“If we could have worked out our differences and all the details of everything, I would have done it, yeah. I would have loved to get back with the original Quiet Riot. But it was never to be. Unfortunately, Frankie kind of screwed me over a little bit here and there, and he never tried to call me and say he was sorry for what he did and make up our friendship.
”He was okay — he could sleep every night for what he did. It wasn’t cool what he did, and it wasn’t what friends do to friends. Obviously, he wasn’t my friend. Friends don’t do that to friends, and I figured, I just scratched him off my friends list. I just didn’t wanna have anything to do with any of them, and I just moved on.”
