Singer Angry at Quiet Riot Over Firing While He Was In The Hospital
He was diagnosed with a brain disorder after collapsing in January, four months after he'd signed up to front the band following the 2007 death of original singer Kevin DuBrow. By the time Huff left hospital two weeks later, he'd been dismissed – but he only found out through online news reports.
In a statement that caused controversy among fans, drummer Frankie Banali said: "Mr Huff's medical condition had nothing to do with the decision that was made, though it's unfortunate that it comes at such a time. A certified letter was sent informing Mark of the decision and why it was made. Unless he decides to make the reason public, which I believe would be counterproductive for him, I will not go tit-for-tat. If certain persons wish to villainies me that is their prerogative."
Now Huff tells Sleaze Roxx: "I had been signed on for the year. I had dates, I had flight itineraries and I was ready to go. This came out of nowhere. I understand people need to get back to work but I'm not happy at how they went about it."
