Just saw the Rising West footage of some rarer classic Ryche songs and La Torre really nails it. About as spot on as you can get for Tate who was originally a Dickinson clone. Again, it amazes it took QR this long to find another singer since there are so many similar Dickinson/Tate clones around. Wilton has always been at odds with Tate since just before they recorded Tribe. Some of the early songs on the album allegedly were Geoff Tate solo songs. Of course the tr00 fans complain while holding their beers that GUFF TAT1 IZ QR and Rising West isn't QR but I don't really care. As long they write an old school metal for the new record who gives a crap how successful it is. And as long as Miranda Tate - Queensryche Cabaret Go Go Dancer isn't behind the show with her mother, who cares? Want an autograph from the Queensryche Cabaret Go Go Dancer? Then go to a Tate solo show and sip some wine while listening to acoustic, adult contemporary Queensryche covers.
