Frank Banali played drums in WASP and Quiet Riot. He also worked with guitarist Gary Hoey, Blackthorne and appeared on a tribute to Aerosmith with colleagues Carmine Appice and Eric Singer.
Previously Frankie Banali filled in for Mark Michals in Faster Pussycat. On the eve of a European tour with the Almighty and Dangerous Toys, Michals left in disgrace, jailed on drugs charges. After the band convinced Brett Bradshaw to assume the drumstool for further US touring, Banali would leave to a next project.
February 2005 saw Benali team up with Whitesnake guitarist Reb Beach in another musical project.
