Christmas 1984: MTV and Quiet Riot Throw a Christmas Party at a Metal Head’s House

"The band showed up in a limo at around 11 AM and stayed until around 10PM, " Rigney says. "We had full catered Christmas dinner and an open bar. We drank and played pool and hung out. Franki Banalli (Quiet Riot's drummer) saw our equipment stored in the garage while we were playing pool, and said,  if we set it up, they would play."
