Wolverhampton Show Review - Henry (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I saw Queensryche live in Wolverhampton on Tuesday evening, and I was
very impressed. I haven't really got much to add to what was reported
last issue. It was an excellent evening, and I was right down at the
front so I had a brilliant view.
For I Am I, Geoff came on wearing a suit and shades, with two
"reporters" following him around, jotting down notes as he sang. He
was wearing a clip-on microphone so both hands were free. Then, at the
end of the song, the two grabbed his suit from either side and it fell
away, leaving him wearing just his black shorts and boots and not a
lot else! For Out of Mind, he was pushed around the stage in a
wheelchair by a nurse.
Scott's drum kit was encased in a transparent perspex box which I
thought was a bit bizarre, perhaps there was some reason behind it
though. During the Mindcrime part of the set, the visuals were the
standard ones, but the visuals at the start showed Geoff wandering
around near the tri-ryche totem pole from the album cover. The film at
the end of the show the end showed the Earth from space, gradually
drifting further and further away, then came the planets of the solar
system, then the galaxy, then the universe and suddenly a big Iguana
appeared its tongue flicked out and caught the universe, just as the
music came to an end. Nicely timed. Also, Someone Else? was not
entirely acoustic, there was a touch of guitar towards the end and a
few touches of the drum kit.

Set Lists - Andy (email@example.com)
For those who see the first few concerts, please don't spoil it for
the rest of us. When you tell us about the concert, please leave out
the set list. I like to be surprised, and found out last year that the
concert just didn't seem the same when I knew what was coming up.
I'll make sure that the set lists aren't included in future
show reviews. -sh
Cover Bands - Rohit (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Does anyone know of any Queensryche cover bands, especially in the New
York City area? I seem to remember seeing an ad for one called
Revolution Calling about a year ago, but I haven't seen anything
MTV Losing Interest? - Charlie (email@example.com)
After reading a review of the Bridge video, I realized that I had only
seen the video once or twice, and I don't think I have ever seen the I
am I video. I saw the video for Silent Lucidity so many times I grew
sick of it. It seems that MTV really supported Queensryche on Empire,
but they have almost abandonded the band on Promised Land. Promised
Land may not be the most popular album out these days, but I bet it
would be more popular if MTV played the videos more often.
Beavis & Butthead - John (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am a big Queensryche fan as well as a big Beavis-and-Butthead fan,
and I have got to know whether a Queensryche video has ever been on
Beavis-and-Butthead, and if so, how did they rate it - did it "rule,"
Show Length - Sarah (email@example.com)
I just read someone's complaint about how Queensryche only performed
onstage for two hours. Believe me, it's a long time. I'd be thankful
for the two rocking hours that I got and not complained that they
could have given me more. And by not having a support band, I wouldn't
have to sit through a band that I didn't come to see! :)
Dirty Lil' Secret - Jim (firstname.lastname@example.org)
So now that Dirty Lil' Secret's out, what do you people think about
it? I was a little perplexed the first time I heard it. It's got a
different feel from most of their recent material, and has an almost
Aerosmith or Van Halen sensibility to the lyrics, at least to me. It
deals more with problems closer to home than outrage on a global
scale. It's got an excellent phrase in the chorus, too - "I'm for
leaving Status Quo behind." Ain't that the truth! I can't seem to
think of any of their past albums where this song would've fit, so I'm
going to add it to the "other" list with Last Time in Paris. :)
Roads to Madness - Tours & Shows
Scandinavian Dates? - Randi (email@example.com)
Can anyone supply me with Scandinavian tour dates? Even if they are
only tentative, any indication of when Queensryche are in the vicinity
The most recently updated tour schedule I have seen lists two
dates in that general area - February 26th at the Cirkus in
Stockholm and February 27th at the KB Halle in Copenhagen. -sh
No Australian Tour? - Chris (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Having just received the lastest issue of Ryche and Roll Times from
the fan club, I notice once again that poor old Australia misses out
on being in the 1995 tour yet again. We go to Europe, we got to
Britian, we even go to Japan. But can we get down under? Doesn't look
Why is it that we keep missing out? We can get Metallica, Megadeth and
even Pantera and Slayer to come down under, and jeez, we even had Kiss
here. But not Queensryche! Why?
With the way that Queensryche's albums are now in almost all the music
stores around the place, and even the videos are showing up, we must
have enough fans down under to be able to put at least one concert in
each capital city.
Is there anyway to persuade Queensryche that we want to see them? I've
been an avid fan for the last four years and I would really like to
see them live without having to mortgage the house to buy air tickets.

Last Time in Paris - Mike (email@example.com)
Does anyone know which single Last Time In Paris is on? I'm looking
for the CD single. I know that it was originally on the Adventures of
Ford Fairlane soundtrack, and I think it was on the CD single for
Silent Lucidity. Am I right, and does anyone know whether the single
it's on is still available?
Song on Last Action Hero - David (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am fairly sure there was a Queensryche song in the soundtrack for
Last Acion Hero, the Arnold movie that bombed. Can anybody confirm
this? What was the name of the song and what album does it appear on?
Thanks in advance.
The song was called Real World and can be found on the
soundtrack for Last Action Hero, which got better reviews than
the movie. It's also on the Japanese Promised Land. -sh
Singles - Sarah (email@example.com)
CD Warehouses are popular throughout Texas. There are at least 3 in
the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. In fact, most import stores or used
CD shops carry a lot of Queensryche around here. Last weekend my
boyfriend and I went to Forever Young records in Arlington, Texas and
found a lot of Queensryche on vinyl, including Silent Lucidity,
Promised Land on clear and maybe black vinyl - it was sealed and I
didn't open it, Jet City Woman, and some others. They also had Rage
for Order on vinyl, which I got as a wonderful valentine's gift.
When are they going to release any singles in the US? I have been
reading the digest for a while and no one has asked this question. I
have seen I Am I as a promo, and I found Bridge but there was no
b-side. When are we going to get any B-Sides? Or do we have to buy
them all as imports? :)
The Whisper - Discussion
Queensryche's Diversity - Scott (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I have noticed that some people do not like Empire because it is too
commercial. The first ever song I heard from Queensryche was Eyes of a
Stranger. I liked it enough to buy Mindcrime, which at first I did
not like very much. Then Empire came out, which I bought because of
Jet City Woman, and I liked it so much I gave Mindcrime another
listen. It was ok, but nothing special. Then Promised Land was
released, and I bought it because I loved Empire so much. In my
opinion, Promised Land is good. After listening to Promised Land, I
listened to Mindcrime and loved it so much I bought the box set, which
was impossible to find. I then bought Rage and the EP. I like all of
them for different reasons. Empire and Rage are my favorites. My point
is that each album has something a bit different to offer - different
moods, et cetera. When a band becomes successful, it's hard not to be
commercial. Why dislike an album for being successful? I think that
Empire has a very strong message to it, just like Mindcrime. We
should relish in the band's diversity of music, even their
Why We're Fans - John (email@example.com)
I started getting into Queensryche about five years ago). A friend of
mine had a copy of Operation: Mindcrime, and said that It was pretty
good. I decided to listen to it, and found that he was right! I
noticed a definite Iron Maiden influence. I was a big Iron Maiden fan
- and still am - and was thoroughly impressed by them. This was about
the same time that I started getting into Helloween, another band many
Queensryche fans enjoy.
I was amazed at the levels of emotion and intensity on Mindcrime, and
at Geoff's vocals. The DeGarmo/Wilton guitar-tandem team away, and the
potent rhythm section was simply incredible. I understood Queensryche
to be like a finely-tuned, well oiled machine that could not work if
one of the parts were missing, and realized that Queensryche are a
true band in every sense of the word, and function as a unit. There
are no soloists in this group. They are perhaps one of the smartest,
intelligent, creative, talented, and cerebral bands in the world, and
their subject matter reflects this.
Anyhow, I bought all their CDs, and saw them on the Building Empires
tour in 1991 with Suicidal Tendencies. The show was excellent. Ever
since I saw the show, I have been a Queensryche fanatic, and look
forward to seeing them in concert again. I am also trying to find
copies of their original CD singles - if anyone knows where I can find
them, let me know.
The Killing Words - Interpretation
Mary's Death - Erik (firstname.lastname@example.org)
It has always been my assumption that Dr. X did kill Mary. The
evidence of such is found in the Livecrime video, and the lyrics from
the Eyes of a Stranger, "Your rosary wrapped around your throat." I
think Dr. X killed her and Nikki found her dead, but everyone thought
Nikki did it, and that's why he wound up in the institution. The album
will always be open for interpretation but I think this was their
Who Killed Mary? - Hokan
In some old issues of SiD, there was discussion about who killed Mary.
The album isn't very clear on that subject; does anyone know what
really happened to her? And speaking of Mary, what could she have done
to become such a risk that Dr. X would want to see her dead? How could
such a cute little nun be a threat to a revolution?
No, no one really knows - except maybe the band. As for nuns,
they've never gotten along with the bad guys, especially in
musicals. Remember The Sound of Music? ;) -sh
Bridge Video - Sarah (email@example.com)
I believe the Bridge video has a little allegory to the book Midnight
by Dean R. Koontz. In the book, some people who spent long periods of
time in front of computers were taken over by them. When I first saw
the video, I immediately thought of the book.
Bridge Video - Jim (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I agree with most of Joe's ideas about the Bridge video. It's one of
those videos where you get an unsettling feeling while watching it,
and it tends to make you think about just how screwed up society is.
The song reinforces the idea that the American dream of a perfect
family has long since been destroyed by declining morals. Songs
generally reflect the times, and I wonder what future generations are
going to think about the 80's and 90's.
I Will Remember - History
Interview with Geoff - Tim (email@example.com)
The following is a rather lengthy interview that was conducted with
our favorite vocalist, Geoff Tate, and printed in a Pennsylvania music
newspaper called the Aquarian Weekly. This is by far the most
comprehensive interview with anyone from the band that I've ever read,
it gets personal with Geoff.
Geoff Tate of Queensryche: We're Not Sheep
by Ula Gehret
First appeared in The Aquarian Weekly 1/18/95
Issue No. 755 pgs. 36-37
Being offered the chance to speak with Queensryche vocalist Geoff Tate
is an imposing proposition to say the least, especially to someone who
considers him one of the finest hard rock/metal vocalists to emerge
since the 80's began. In fact, I'd have to cite 1988's Operation:
Mindcrime as the best hard rock album of its decade, not to mention a
brilliant conceptual piece whose storyline is equally as strong as its
Despite being one of the original Seattle bands, putting the city on
the map with their independent self-titled EP back in 1982
(re-released by EMI records in 1983), it wasn't until the release of
1990's Empire that the band found the success critics had long been
predicting for them. The latter months of 1994 saw the release of
Promised Land, the band's sixth studio recording.
Of course, everyone familiar with the band knows of their
garishly-costumed past, knows who killed Mary, knows that Queensryche
are a consummate "headphone band," but how many people know what Geoff
Tate is really like? Follow now, the course of events as they
Ula Gehret: I've noticed your last three albums, beginning with
Operation, have proceeded in order from a third-person,
perspective to second-person to first-person with Promised
Land. Has it taken you that long to open yourself up to the
Geoff Tate: (Laughs) I guess not, really. Third-person, second-person,
first-person I think is all in opinion, and I really don't know
how to explain it other than that.
UG: Was the four-year absence between albums necessary, or was it
attributed in part to your perfection towards fine detail?
GT: Well, we toured for two years supporting Empire, and we all felt
we needed to take a break for a while and recharge our
batteries. Touring tends to take a lot out of us, and we've
sort of been on a treadmill for most of our careers doing
writing, recording, touring, writing, recording, touring. The
idea was to take some time off and we never really came to a
conclusion how long that time would be. I think we just got
back together when we had an idea and wanted to make some music
together again, and that's when the project started.
UG: Are you perfectionists in the studio?
GT: Yeah, sure, and live too. Well, your work will outlive you, and
personally I think it's important to make it the best you can
at the time being.
UG: To be honest I expected a much more commercial album and so I was
surprised that it wasn't a dozen versions of Silent Lucidity,
although I'm sure EMI would have loved that. How has the
GT: Well, I'd have to say it's very positive. We don't expect everyone
to embrace it and think it's the best thing since sliced bread,
but it's an album I think people will grow with. It's an album
that affects people in different ways on different levels,
depending on where that person is at.
UG: Writing more personal material makes it harder to hit people in
any particular situation, but I think it hits them on a deeper
GT: I think you're probably right. Over time people grow with it. I
think it's one of those albums that when you're 20 you're not
going to be that interested in it, but the older you get the
more you are.
UG: Since it took about seven years for you to break through, was it a
case where you though, 'it's about time!' or 'Thank God'?
GT: Well...(laughs) It's a difficult question to answer because I
don't wasn't to sound like I'm an asshole or something...
UG: You don't have to be entirely humble. You have no reason to be in
GT: Let's put it this way: Empire was an album that when we wrote it,
we went into it thinking of the direction we wanted to go with
it. We wanted to write a lot of different kinds of songs that
were very strong, melody-oriented songs, very simple and direct
with the lyrical content, and even with the musical content.
There's not a lot of challenging musical stuff on that album,
in my opinion. We looked like a rock band, we sounded like a
rock band. We were easily boxed into that little category that
said, "All right, non-threatening rock band with radio-friendly
songs... this will sell to a certain demographic, everybody
will make money and things will go on in corporate America."
(laughs) And we knew that, we really did. I would have been
more surprised if it didn't become very successful or didn't
get any radio play. I don't mean that in a sort of cocky way,
I'm just very interested in the sort of consumer psyche we have
in this country.
UG: Is the public really that easy to manipulate?
GT: Oh yeah. Very.
UG: That's scary.
GT: It's , it's comical, it's tragic, it's amazing... I mean, look all
around you, we all bu into it on a number of different levels.
The culture of America is "Buy. Consume." That's what we're
here for, that's what the country was founded on - the freedom
to make money.
UG: Were the changes in Empire the result of not breaking through with
Operation: Mindcrime, which was probably one of your best
GT: Well, we've always felt successful. We're incredibly fortunate to
be able to do what we love and share what we do with other
people. Every day I think of how amazing that is and how
fortunate I am to be a part of that, and that anybody cares to
listen to what I'm saying! But with Empire, I guess it was an
UG: And although Empire was an experiment, I guess it's one you might
have liked to have seen fail?
GT: (Laughs) Well, kind of... that's interesting. No, I guess not. I'm
happy with what happened, and I learned a lot from that
experience. I try to live my life like that, looking at
everything as a positive learning experience, sort of a way of
UG: Rather than just looking at the bottom line that people are sheep.
GT: Yeah, I guess so. Well, I'm a sheep myself - I'm probably less of
one than a lot of people because I'm extremely cynical, but I
find myself in the herd quite often, and I have to stop, look
around and question, "Why am I doing this? What's my
motivation?" Often times I find my motivation is a learned
experience or a socialized response due to the country I live
in, the culture I grew up in, my parents' input...
UG: But when you stop and question where you are, aren't the answers
often culled from learned experiences as well?
GT: Yeah, they are, and my answers are often changing from year to
year. It's like the older cliched saying, "The older you get,
the less you know." I find that to be very true. There's things
that you know because you see them happen time after time
again. Like the music business, you know, it's very cyclical.
You can really predict what's going to happen fairly accurately
if you keep in touch with what's happened and what's going on.
UG: Have you used that knowledge for yourself? For instance, would
"Silent Lucidity" have been entirely acoustic if it hadn't been
the sweeping trend at the time?
GT: Good question. We're all influenced by everything around us, and
really I don't think there is an original thought. I think it's
all cumulative where everybody's influencing everyone. We're
all that way - every musician listens to somebody. The more
original your music sounds in a certain point in history is all
due to your craftsmanship, I think, and how well you utilize
all your influences.
UG: Do you feel that you're gifted at piecing together those ideas or
that you're not extremely original but good at what you do?
GT: Yeah, I don't think I'm that original. I think I'm good at
craftsmanship and putting things together that sound good to
me. I'm getting better at expressing myself in lyrics.
UG: Do you think you've allowed yourself to become more vulnerable,
and to drop the guard, so to speak?
GT: Perhaps. Perhaps that's come through maturity or experience. You
know, I didn't really think about that kind of thing when
writing, it was just an expression or an outpouring.
UG: Of course, I didn't think you would analyze it at the time, that's
just what the gist of what this whole process is about.
GT: This is kind of like therapy here!
UG: So what kind of relationship do you have with your mother?
GT: (Laughs) Isn't that evident.
UG: How difficult is it to think of yourself as an ordinary person
when you have two million people telling you otherwise? What
does that do to your character?
GT: Well, it's an adjustment. When you first become aware of how
people perceive you and things people say, it's rather
shocking. You know, language is so inaccurate, and inflections
and body language can be interpreted in so many different ways.
I think that can be very dangerous, because if you say things
with a sarcastic tone, that perhaps isn't interpreted. You find
yourself with a lot of buttons pushed and it becomes very
uncomfortable. I tend to have that effect on people, I think; I
push people's buttons.
UG: So you're pushing the wrong buttons and getting under their skin?
GT: Yeah, and I don't even do it conciously... well, sometimes I do it
conciously, it depends on the person. There's a stage in every
person's life where perhaps when you're younger you want to see
things as black and white. You want to know, why isn't the
world this way? And it's very difficult for one to accept the
gray. Perhaps the older you get, the less black and white it
becomes. You start appreciating the color. And then you start
realizing that the world is a very perfect place, really, it's
just humans that are imperfect. It's man trying to be perfect
that causes imperfection.
UG: Was it difficult the first few times you were let down by your
GT: Yeah, I suppose it is. I found that the more expectations I had of
any given situation, the more I was setting myself up for
disappointments. So to deal with that I just have less
expectations and life is more of a surprise, and therefore more
UG: Have you ever thought of what life after Queensryche might be
like, since musicians and athletes both have careers whose peak
periods seem to be finite?
GT: No (laughs). Honestly not. I like hanging out with guys that have
been in the business for years, I find it very inspiring. I'm
always sort of asking... I'm interviewing them, really, from
musician to musician, 'How do you keep it together? How do you
keep doing what you're doing?' Probably in every field, and in
society at large, we have a lot to learn from our elders if we
get over our egocentricity and stop to listen to what they have
to say. They don't have all the answers, nobody does, and at
least you can get an interesting perspective.
But to answer your question, just continuing and growing and
changing over the next few years. There's all kinds of ideas
and projects we want to do and have started on already. It
really just comes down to how much energy we want to pump into
it, how much we love the idea.
UG: As far as supporting yourself, is it a case of trying to amass as
much a personal wealth so you won't have to worry about the
GT: No, I don't really do that either. I give a lot of it away. I
think getting stuck on the money and the survival and
investments, it keeps me away from what's happening with my
personal development and creativity. I'm a creative junkie; I
live for that. If there ever comes a time where I can't do what
it is I'm doing now, for whatever reason, I will always
continue doing something creative. It doesn't really matter to
me if it's lucrative or not, just as long as I can express
myself and I'm making something.
UG: You mentioned work outliving the artist earlier... Is it important
for you to leave something behind that will exist beyond your
GT: Yeah, I think it's important to do that. Just to say, "This was
who I was and this was my perspective." I think we can all
learn from each other no matter what we do for a living. To me
it doesn't really make a difference. I learned some very
incredible stuff working on my boat this summer. This guy had
learned woodworking from his dad, and it was like a
generations-old craft. I was just stunned by his skill and his
craft, and he was as into doing what he does as I am into doing
what I'm doing. There's all kinds of things to learn in life.
UG: It always amazes me that people can have such low aspirations;
that they never do more than punch a clock for 40 years, retire
GT: I think people that buy into that commercial, they've been doing
it for a long time. That's what the Industrial Revolution was
built on, it was people doing a specific job all their life. I
couldn't do that. I have a tendency not to respect what people
do. Not that I look down on what they do, but I'm disappointed
that they don't pursue what they love. They're intimidated by
the world around them and they feel like they have to play it
safe and do all the right things. That's not living to me.
Mistakes are part of life. Risk is part of life. Pursuing one's
love or passion is life.
UG: Of course, it's a lot easier to say that once you're
double-platinum! I'm just kidding...
GT: I suppose it is, but it doesn't mean I always was at a
double-platinum status, and it doesn't mean I always will be
either! (Laughs). But you've got to love what you do. If you
don't, it shows. I get a kick out of these people who drive
home on the freeway after work... they've all been in a job
they hate all day and working for a boss, they're not in charge
of their own life. And they're so angry, and they drive on the
freeway and they're just cutting people off and flipping them
the finger and competing, because they feel like they have been
stiffed. Perhaps they don't even think about this conciously,
they're just reacting to all the pent-up frustration they must
feel. It's just amazing to watch. At our age, we don't go out
hunting, we just play the survival game on the road.
UG: Speaking of road, Queensryche are currently in rehearsal preparing
for an extensive U.S. tour which will begin in February.
Gonna Get Close to You - Meetings
Meeting the Band - Deborah (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I've been a huge fan of Queensryche's since the EP came out. A guy
brought it over to my house and told me, "Hey, you like Dio, I bet
you'll like these guys. Put it on." Boy, was he right - I've been a
fan ever since. But what I wanted to pass on was how nice the band was
when I met them. They were opening for KISS in Sacramento. I can't
remember which tour it was since I've seen 'Ryche way over ten times
and they all seem to blend in with each other, except for the
Mindcrime tour. My friends and I went to the Holiday Inn where they
were staying after the show was over, and all the guys were sitting in
the bar drinking. No one in the bar knew who they were, so they were
just by themselves. I was the only one in my group with valid ID
allowed in the bar, so I walked up to Chris and told him how wonderful
the show was. He turned completely away from the others and paid full
attention to what I had to say. He thanked me and told me it was
always nice to have face-to-face feedback with those who supported the
band. I told him he could see a lot more faces if he'd step out into
the lobby. He said sure, told the others and before I knew it they
were in the lobby with all my friends. In fact, my friends were so
happy and excited to meet them, I didn't really get to talk to them
anymore. They were signing autographs, taking pictures, and then we
were invited to their hotel room for drinks. The rest is restricted
information, but the cool part was they were normal folks and it was a

Breaking the Silence - Miscellaneous
Trivia - Mike (email@example.com)
I was browsing the bargain bin at a local music store, and came across
an album by a band called "Saraya", which sounded vaguely familiar, so
I bought it. On the inside cover, where the "special thank-you's" are
listed, was this item:
