Technically, Carlos Cavazo joined the group when singer Kevin DuBrow essentially made it his solo project. It wasn’t until shortly after Rhoads’ death, when bassist Rudy Sarzo decided to rejoin his former members, that they went back to calling themselves Quiet Riot. The following year, the band released Metal Health, which not only catapulted the band into fame but was also the first ever metal album to reach #1 on the Billboard charts. Cavazo remained in the group until leaving for good in 2003, and now can be seen in another 80’s hair metal group: Ratt.
