Interview with Geoff Tate (vocalist – Operation Mindcrime)

During the recent tour of the UK with his band, Operation Mindcrime, leader singer and former front man with progressive metal icons Queensrÿche took time out to speak to Myglobalmind in Southend upon Sea. Not your typical heavy metal resort location but look up Chinnerys, the venue where the band are performing and you discover a wonderful musical history and a look at the walls confirms that pretty much anyone who is anyone has at some point pushed a flight case through the doors on the road to success.

Interview Eddie Jackson of Queensryche

It’s been a turbulent few years in the Queensrÿche camp. With the well-publicised split with original vocalist Geoff Tate and the bitter fallout that followed now behind them, the Seattle band are entering a new chapter in their three-decade career. Supporting the release of acclaimed new album ‘Condition Hüman’ – their second with vocalist Todd La Torre – the five-piece have hit the road in the USA with The Scorpions for a run of sold-out dates in some of the country’s biggest arenas. We caught up with bassist Eddie Jackson in Rosemont, Illinois to discuss the new album, the highs and lows of Queensrÿche history, and the band’s plans for 2016. Walking the thin line: Eamon O’Neill.

Exclusive Interview with Geoff Tate (Vocals) (Queensryche)

At this point in my life, I would really like to work with people that I admire and people that are great players. And people that I share a creative bond with. And that’s very, very important to me. I spent 30 years with a group of people that didn’t share that. And so, it’s really a pleasure to play with enthusiastic, happy people who are really good players.
