Apparently, Ames had a pop/dance music career in Italy. I actually think he is a decent vocalist, and when he was touring with Queensryche in the old days, one of his roles was to prop GT up and hit the high notes GT c

I watched the whole thing, and it was painful. Also remember that Jason Ames (strumming the chords and singing next to him) is doing most of the singing while Uncle Vester sings under him. To add to the clusterf*ck that you saw, keep in mind that Jason Ames used to be married to Susan Tate, who is Geoff Tate's current wife. You can't make this sh*t up. One of the dancers (the bleached blonde,

> PS: did you mean 'Fester' from THe Adams Family? He meant Uncle Vester. It's one of Tate's many nicknames, frequently used in the comment section of the countless Blabbermouth articles. There is some really entertaining stuff over there. Tate really takes a beating over there, but I must say that he has probably earned every morsel of it. Many of the nicknames make reference to the

Mickey was originally hired by Elvin Bishop to be a backing vocalist. When Elvin wrote "Fooled Around," he felt his voice didn't suit the song, so he had Mickey sing lead. THat was really Mickey's big break.

If you buy a CD from the original pressing, you can send a copy of your receipt to Cleopatra Records and they will send you a hard copy of the remixed version. They do not send MP3's. It is a new CD in an empty, clear jewel case (no liner notes). I actually received the remix CD in an extremely prompt fashion. It's definitely better than the original pressing, but most of the songs on either

The stream of the entire album was only available yesterday. You can only stream "Cold" now. I couldn't stomach the entire album. I listened to the first few songs. "Cold" was the vest of them. The re-records were abominations. The instrumentation was poor and the vocals lackluster. GT even tried to recreate the answering machine message at the beginning of Empire. E

Holy shit. Those re-records are Fucking Unlistenable. They sound like cuts from a bargain bin Queensryche tribute album. I am definitely not going to inVEST in this CD.

I had problems with that link. This one worked better: https://soundcloud.com/shando316/jet-city-woman-re-recording-vs That is ridiculous. Perfect overlay between the two vocal tracks. Someone has a lot of explaining to do. Certainly cause for further inVESTigation.

I posted this in another response regarding the guitar solo: I think the biggest problem with the song is the guitar solo. It doesn't fit the song at all and seems like a bunch of aimless noodling and wanking. It seems like the lyrics are going for an emotional plea, and the solo just doesn't match and support the rest of the song.

I listened to this a few times on my laptop at work, but wanted to reserve judgement until I could listen at home on a computer with a better sound card and speakers. I also wanted to wait to make sure my disdain for GT and how he has acted didn't jade my views. I don't consider his project "Queensryche." The original Queensryche (Todd/Whip/Eddie/Scott/Parker) is the real Queensryche

You can hear Phil X singing lead on a verse of Wanted Dead or Alive here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2tnFv8h-Rw Skip to 2:42 for instant gratification. This was from the last time Phil X replaced RS. I think he sounds pretty good.

He was supposed to start working on the Taintryche project on March 27. Today is March 30. Wonder what happened in those three days. He is right to wish them luck on the project. They need all the help they can get.

I hope Billy gets paid handsomely for this, as fixing this album is a Herculean task, as difficult as working with GT. They should have brought Billy in earlier to do the songwriting, recording, etc. The songs Billy wrote for Yes (and even YOSO) are better than any of the FU clips I heard. It's too late for this abomination. I'm willing to bet the label heard the final mixes and told GT to ge

There actually was a MythBusters episode where they showed that you can polish a turd. The only problem is that when you're done, it's still a turd and you have sh*t all over your hands.

Saw them on Friday night. First time seeing Queensryche. Todd was great. Took things by the balls from the start with Queen of the Reich. Only disappointment was that they didn't play Jet City Woman, Take Hold of the Flame, or I Don't Believe in Love. Also, no vests or guyliner in sight. I would love to hear from Glen's mouth why he bailed on Geoff Taint. He said it was in his vest- I

Boston played 38 shows this past summer from June 28 through September 8. This was the first time they played since their summer 2008 tour (many dates with Styx then). That was the last time Michael Sweet played with them. The current line-up is: Tom Scholz (of course) Tommy DeCarlo David Victor Gary Pihl (long-time member of Boston, since Third Stage era) Tracy Ferrie (former bassist o

I have seen Kansas a number of times, including once with full orchestral accompaniment. Musically, they are extremely tight. Steve Walsh's vocals aren't what they once were, but he still gives it his all. Billy Greer sings all of Robby Steinhardt's old parts and hits all the high notes that SW can't get to anymore. David Ragsdale is great on the violin and also plays some rhythm guitar and s

Rudy is in GT's "new" Queensryche, or whatever you want to call it. These clips are GT's solo tour, with his backing band. They play a number of QR cuts, but also the garbage from his solo albums.

Seems to me this GT solo tour isn't a good idea. If he is trying to build a new Queensryche, it doesn't seem like this solo tour will have any fans begging for more, nor will what I have heard of the solo CD. It might confuse fans too much and keep them from going to GT new Queensryche shows, as they can't disassociate it from GT solo music shows. I don't think the new Queensryche is a goo
