Quiet Riot’s Frankie Banali opens up about his pancreatic cancer battle

When Quiet Riot’s Frankie Banali announced last month that he is battling stage IV pancreatic cancer — a diagnosis he actually received back in April — it was a major blow to the rock world. Suddenly it made sense why the 67-year-old drummer, who hadn’t missed a gig in 38 years, had sat out Quiet Riot’s summer tour. But shortly after his announcement, Banali returned to his drum kit for a triumphant comeback show at Hollywood’s Whisky a Go Go, and he’s fighting his disease with the same sort of power with which he hits the skins.
