Speaking of Geoff not sounding horrible...just kidding, this is beyond horrible.



I'm not sure what's worse, Geoff, the band, or their horrendous backing vocals. "Screaming in Digital" is an absolute joke. It's like they tried to learn the song in the dressing room five minutes before going on stage.

Wow! For someone who didn't want to play the old stuff, he sure is playing it now! Does he even play anything off of his new album? or any later QR?

I'm sure he'd much rather play RfO stuff than the 2 previous releases.

I think it goes to show how amazing the new Queensryche is that this whole thread is about a guy who hasn't been in the band for ages!  Laughing

I lasted a minute and change and had to shut it off. I am actually starting to feel bad for the guy now.

That's sad, really. The talent that Tate once possessed has downgraded to this.

People paid for this, huh? At least when he was in his burlesque show phase, you could see some titties or something.

It has the look of a Casino show and sometimes those are free. I know that the Mohegan Sun Casino in Conn. has the Wolf Den shows and those are always free. In fact, I saw Toddryche there for gratis the end of last summer.

I was wrong, I guess people did pay for this. After a quick search of the phrase written on the tapestry behind the drummer reveals it to be the Canyon Club in Cali.

Why can't these musicians figure out how to play the damn songs? I mean...are they even close on "Screaming in Digital?" Haha.

Maybe they are taking a page from the Allman Brothers Band and play the songs different every night ? Improv maybe ?

I think I said something akin to this a few pages back, but Tate should have stayed with the cabaret/ burlesque thing as that seems to be where his heart really is. We all know that (a Tate led) Queensryche hasn't been Metal since the eighties and he hasn't wanted to be even Hard Rock since the late 1990's so he should just do what makes him happy. I know he wants the name recognition that comes with Queensryche but at the cost of consistently embarrassing himself? If I were him, I would have done something totally different and done the music that is in my heart. Something akin to what Ritchie Blackmore did. I know that Blackmore's Night doesn't sell like the proverbial hotcakes but the man seems happy. Well, as happy as RB usually is. Smile

They could try and pass off that excuse for sub-par performances, but I don't think they're fooling anyone. Does Geoff really strike you as an "improve-jam-band-sorta guy"? Razz

Yes, the only small differences between Tate and Blackmore's Night being

a) Blackmore's Night have an amazing singer.
b) Ritchie is a phenomenal musician.
c) They surround themselves with professionals.



You might not like what Ritchie is doing but he does it damned well. Can you see the people this deluded idiot surrounds himself with pulling this off?

I have no problem with what RB does now as it appears he is genuinely happy with it and with doing it. And, you are absolutely correct on all 3 points about the differences. My point is that Blackmore is doing something totally different than his former band mates while Tate is trying to outdo his former mates. And he keeps failing at it.

Great vid, by the way. Thanks.

Sarcasm on my part ? It usually flies over like a led blimp online.

It's just the way they wanted to play it and music is all about personal expression. It's just your opinion that they played the song wrong and all opinions are equal. Heavy metal is about personal expression, from Pat Benatar to Krisiun to Bryan Adams to Johnny Cash, each played heavy metal in their own way and that's all that matters.

I will stand up for Tate and say that, even now, when he holds back and sings in his lower, comfortable register, he still sounds like nobody else.

He still has it, because his voice was only ever partly about how high he could sing, it was the amount of feeling and character he sang with. In his lower, natural range he still sounds extremely good. It's when he tries to climb those classic Queensryche vocal mountains that he falls short.

The man is 57 years old. Taking that little fact into consideration, it's physically impossible for him to hit notes he hit when it was 22.

He still sounds very, very good on these two songs.





And this kicks ass

Oh, don't give me that herpy-derpy bullshit. That doesn't apply to that clip above AT ALL! That's not personal expression; it's piss-poor, amateurish, out-of-tune crap.



I guess this is personal expression, yeah?

Ask sd.  It's all personal opinion.  Why should musicians practice?  Just let loose whatever feels good. Open your mind and stop being so intolerant.

Sorry James.

You seem like a pretty nice fella and have a general positive outlook on things. When you say something like the above statement, I just assume you're trying to put a nice spin on things and not being a sarcastic prick. Like me. Twisted Evil

Saw Queensryche last night. Very good show. Todd can definitely sing. During various parts of the show my jaw would drop.

VERY short setlist. They went on at 9pm and were completely done at 1030.

Setlist was pretty interesting. 3 from Condition Human. 3 from Empire. 3 from Mindcrime, 1 from Rage, 1 from The Warning, 1 from Promised Land, 1 from S/T, and 1 from the EP.

Great show, but I was irritated they didn't play Revolution Calling, and I thought the set was pretty short.
