Queensrÿche guitarist Michael Wilton opines there will never be a reunion with Geoff Tate at this point
Queensrÿche guitarist Michael Wilton was recently interviewed by Atlantic City Weekly given that Queensrÿche and Skid Row will be playing on the same bill at Harrah’s Resort on October 14, 2017.
Wilton was asked whether he thought that there will ever be a reunion with original Queensrÿche vocalist Geoff Tate to which he replied (with additions in square brackets): “Not at this point. We’ve rebuilt our career with Todd [La Torre] and it’s going amazingly and we wouldn’t want to change that.”
In terms of how the fans have responded to La Torre, Wilton stated: “Everybody has taken Todd La Torre into the fold and we are doing great with him. All of the hardcore Queensryche fans are saying that he is the new voice of Queensryche, so we are very, very happy, because we have been working for the last five years to build this.”
With respect to the group’s plans for a new record, Wilton advised: “Yes! We’ve been writing diligently and putting together song ideas and we will are hoping to begin recording sometime in January and have the album out as soon as we can get it out.”
