Geoff Tate of Queensryche
Saturday June 16th the legendary GEOFF TATE of QUEENSRYCHE playing with an acoustic band, guest http://www.geofftate.com/
There's not a rock band around that has had the bravado to take their music in as divergent directions as Tate's full-time outfit, and that fact isn't lost on the singer. "I never tried to have a box thrown around myself and be a 'heavy metal' singer," he explains. "If you listen to a lot of Queensrÿche records, especially since Empire, we've done many different types of music and vocals, all based around guitars. 'Silent Lucidity' and 'Jet City Woman' aren't heavy metal anthems, they're just good songs, and I think this new record of mine is a greater extension of where Queensrÿche went in those directions."
When most musicians record solo albums, it's because they need an outlet for material that doesn't fit the scope of their band. That wasn't the case with Geoff Tate. While there's very little on his solo debut that couldn't fit within the ever-evolving musical scope of Queensrÿche, the difference for the vocalist lies in the expression of those songs.
