Riot Dedicating New Album To Mark Reale

(Classic Rock) Riot have confirmed they're gearing up to release their first album since the death of founding guitarist Mark Reale. But they may change their name in recognition of the fact that he was the last original member of the band.

Reale passed away in 2012, aged 56, after a lifelong battle with Crohn's Disease. He was rushed to hospital in January after suffering a brain haemorrhage, and died two weeks later without regaining consciousness.

The band say in a brief statement: "Thank you fans, for your support. Thank you, Mark. This is for you, and dedicated to you. Shine on!" more on this story
