American Idol contestant James Durbin is the new lead singer of Quiet Riot.
If it works for Queen, why can’t it also work for Quiet Riot.
Queen has had American Idol finalist Adam Lambert as their lead singer the last few years and now another Idol alumni, James Durbin, is about to lead Quiet Riot.
Durbin will be the seventh lead singer for the group after the late Kevin DuBrow, Paul Shortino (1987 to 1989), Mark Huff (2010 to 2012), Scott Vokoun (2012 to 2013), Jizzy Pearl (2013 to 2016) and Seann “Tarsha” Nichols (October 2016 to March 2017).
