From The Road — Reunited and it feels so good is what FRANKIE BANALI and RUDY SARZO are feeling today. Along with feeling the noise of a loud rock n’ roll show from the “Rock The Valley Music Festival” in Lewiston, Idaho over the weekend.

BANALI who is on tour with QUIET RIOT and SARZO who is out with GUNZO shared the stage for the first time in over a decade when the former QR bassist joined his ole’ pal for a rousing rendition of “Cum On Feel The Noise”.

The sole remaining member of the classic years line-up posted a message about the chance to catch up with his old friend: “HANGING OUT WITH A MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN MY LIFE…. MY DEAR FRIEND RUDY SARZO…GREAT FUN AND SO MANY LAUGHS AND MEMORIES!”

GUNZO also features L.A. GUNS founder TRACII GUNS who shared a video on his official facebook (see below) of the epic jam that has over 10,000 views almost over night.

GUNS himself commented: “It’s always great when it all works out 🙂 I love these guys !!! #respect”

QUIET RIOT along with BANALI also features ALEX GROSSI on guitar, CHUCK WRIGHT on bass and JIZZY PEARL (ex LOVE/HATE, RATT) on lead vocals.

PEARL too seemed ecstatic about the chance to jam with SARZO stating; “W hole different energy….very fun” as he posted on his official facebook.
