Las Vegas police have confirmed that Kevin Dubrow, the lead singer of '80s heavy metal band Quiet Riot, was found dead in his Las Vegas home. He was 52.

One of Kevin Dubrow's neighbors found the singer Sunday afternoon.

The Clark County, Nev., coroner has confirmed that his office is currently examining Dubrow's body to try to determine the cause of death.

Fellow band member Frankie Banali posted this message on his website: "I can't even find words to say. Please respect my privacy as I mourn the passing and honor the memory of my dearest friend, Kevin Dubrow."

Kevin Dubrow passed away at his Las Vegas home Sunday.

Kevin Dubrow and Quiet Riot were the first metal band to top the Billboard charts and are likely best known for their cover of "Cum on Feel the Noize."

Meanwhile, the body of Hawthorne Heights guitarist Casey Calvert was found dead on the group's tour bus Saturday, hours before a scheduled concert in Washington, D.C. The cause of death has yet to be determined.
