Leading and Legacy: Talking to Geoff Tate

Few voices in the history of rock and metal have been both legendarily lauded and applauded. Geoff Tate is one the these. As the frontman for Queensryche, Tate sold millions of records, and earned millions of fans with his piercing vocals. With a unique tone and an almost limitless range, Tate helped define what a metal singer could be. Now, with that band's status in turmoil, Tate readies the release of his second solo album, “Kings & Thieves”. The record is a modern take on the rock music that made him a star, as well as another left turn for an artist always willing to surprise. Geoff recently took the time to answer some of our questions.

Album Review: Geoff Tate - Kings & Thieves

Geoff Tate's second solo album arrives at a time that long seemed impossible. The erstwhile leader of Queensrÿche, his voice was more than synonymous with the band's legacy. To think of Queensrÿche without Tate was absurd, because no band could survive losing not only its public face, but also the member most responsible for shaping the trajectory of their career. To lose Tate, it would be assumed, would be to commit career suicide. And yet, as we have seen countless times before, life doesn't follow along with what common sense would dictate.
