Frankie Banali is a mainstay in the history of rock rhythm. His work with Quiet Riot was for millions of people, a first introduction into the world of heavy metal through songs like "Cum On Feel The Noize" and "Bang Your Head." These classics have become modern standards in the genre.
Banali's hard hitting, deep pocket, heavy approach to rhythm met with his dedication to never 'phoning" any performance in, has kept the Quiet Riot banner waving throughout the world for more than thirty years. His approach and talents have also been tapped at various points in his career by legends like WASP, Billy Idol, Glenn Hughes and Pat Thrall among many others.
It is with the same dedication to the art of rhythm and perseverance, that Banali releases his art debut collection "Cum On See The Noize." Showcasing a new dimension of where rhythm can go, Banali's collection features 9 works on canvas, each built from the medium of rhythm-on-canvas.
Nearly a year in the making, Frankie Banali’s art debut of 9 original works focuses on bringing Quiet Riot’s rhythms from sound to sight in a highly limited collection of abstract visuals. Much like a painter utilizing oils of different colors, Banali worked with a wide array of drumsticks that light in various ways to craft rhythms that translated to artwork. Considered a new medium in art, the focus of these works is capturing the movement and rhythmic approach of the drummer at-work.
Throughout the creation process, Frankie Banali worked with SceneFour, the art team and publisher responsible for the rhythm-on-canvas medium and the select group of collections crafted from music’s finest drummers. Within this collection, Banali not only works with his rhythms in Quiet Riot, but also touches upon his work with legendary metal band W.A.S.P. and Billy Idol.
