Geoff Tate is always a great interview. Queensryche is somewhat of an anomaly among rock bands in that the band constantly challenges its audience with musically and lyrically complex albums in a variety of styles. Geoff himself is remarkable for his obvious intellect and insight, and this conversation is no exception as we touch on a wide range of topics including Ronnie James Dio; the writing process in Queensryche; challenges of working in an album-length format in a digital download age; the changes in the music business marketing model; his upcoming movie role; his wine Insania and wine culture; the changing way the rest of the world views America; and Queensryche's upcoming album and live shows.
