My wife just texted me "It is late"
And to that I say
NOT "LOL" ROB.
Nothin like celebrating being 42 by...havin a new baby! Oi. Wouldn't change a thing, but WE'RE ALL FULL HERE MISTER.
just found this thread. great to see the mighty queensryche getting some love.
they have been my fave band since the mid 80's and been fortunate to have seen them and met them many times.
have a heap of signed memorabilia and have even flown to america before to catch them live.
as a few noted they are back firing on all cylinders with todd replacing tate.
if anybody *was* I to them and had given up. this is off their last cd.
There can never be enough Queensryche love in my opinion! I've photographed them a dozen times in the past few years since Todd joined for my publication National Rock Review (www.NationalRockReview.com)
Here's a dump of some of my favorites.
Quoted from Dee-Bow:
Just Googled Geoff Tate...didn't know it ended like that!
Now Google his latest music and you'll understand why the band ousted him! Between the musical direction he was trying to take the band and the making the band his family business (wife managing, daughter singing on albums and appearances on stage to the daughter's BF playing in the band). To Tate's defense, he had said in the past that he never was into metal music, that was more Scott and Chris' style.
His voice is shot .... Todd sings the songs a lot better than Tate does which 20 years ago no one could compare to Tate.
Checkout this video of QR in 1984 (The Warning Tour) that was taken on a small club in Pittsburgh. The quality is lacking as it was a guy shot it with his VHS camera...Tate's voice was unreal.
Todd is a great replacement but Tate had a unique voice in the early days that no one could ever replicate. Too bad it ended the way it did. Google the lawsuit depositions for some really shitty reports from various members and tour managers. What a shitty end to his legacy.
He did some shows in Europe recently and actually sounded way better than he has in recent years.
Just saw a picture of this album cover and it sent me down a brief Deep Purple rabbit hole...
Was never a massive purple fan, but I do like the Coverdale MK3 era. And I love Ritchie Blackmore, he’s one of the best guitar players ever. And Jon Lord .. genius.
If you are working in front of your computer, throw this album on and give it a whirl all the way through. This is taken from a live radio broadcast the MK3 lineup did on their only UK tour in 1974 .. so there are probably no overdubs at all.
What you heard live in 1974 is what you get.
Quoted from ghostbc:
Glenn Hughes is out doing Purple mk3 tour, reviews of show in England are great!
Yeah, he can still sing like a MF even though he’s almost 70 and has done more coke than maybe anyone else on the planet (read his book if you haven’t - a good read)
Did you see Black Country Communion had a new album last year... For those who don’t know, BCC is Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham, Joe Bonamassa and Derek Sherinian. Good hard rocking music.
New Soilwork songs are out ...
Slightly more melodic than usual, although it does kick in around 3:00 in ...
New drummer in place, as the old one is now in Megadeth.
And the new Slipknot came out a while back.
Whatever you think of their shtick, this song will go off big time on the stage ... when that riff kicks in, it’s a banger!
Jake E Lee was on Dean Delray’s podcast a few weeks ago, he talked about being the original guitarist in Dio ... jammed in Dios house and everything .. before they went for Vivian Campbell.
Quoted from AVH7401:
Is anyone else interested in KISS's farewell tour?
Lots of talk online about it.
Appears Paul is singing along to tracks this time. Just like most pop acts do these days.
A lot of fans can’t stomach Thayer singing Shock Me and Singer doing the Beth schtick on the pretend Liberace grand piano. Reality is 95% of the audience probably don’t even know they’re not “the guys”. Lol
They’re coming here in December - I’ve seen them a dozen times but I might take my 9 year old grandson along to them cause he’s a big fan. Stageshow will blow his mind.
