    Default Geoff Tate (Queensryche) on touring with CF

    From knac.com:

    KNAC.COM: How is it going out with a band, particularly one of pretty straight-forward in-your-face music, and not a lot of lyrical thought provocation? Do the fans cross over pretty well?

    TATE: We only played one show with Chickenfoot at a festival. And yeah, itís very different kind of music, but itís nice to know that all the guys in Chickenfoot are fans of Queensryche. And a lot of Queensryche guys are Chickenfoot fans. So thatís kind of cool.

    KNAC.COM: So the bands all cross over really well. (laughing)

    TATE: Most musicians are open to a lot of different types of music. We all pull inspiration from each other. It was fun when we played in Europe, because it was a festival and weíre all sitting backstage. The guys from Chickenfoot had some instruments backstage so we pulled a jam session. Simple, blues rock kind of stuff, so nothing that was too challenging to play, but it was fun. Thatís a big part of music too, thereís a fun aspect that you can lose yourself in. Iím looking forward to touring with them. Itís going to be fun. I like those guys a lot. Michael Anthony and Sammy are incredible guys, Iíve known them from way back. Joe Satriani, Iíve known him a couple of years. And the drummerÖ

    KNAC.COM: Yes, the one that looks like Will Farrell. Chad Smith.

    TATE: (laughing) Yeah, people were asking for his autograph, and everybody thought he was Will Farrell.

    Back-handed compliments from Prog-Snobs that sing too high!

    I rather enjoyed QR's set from the outside bar, mainly because I couldn't
    hear it.

    Well, he doesn't sing as high as he used to.

    Actually, I can't imagine Geoff scatting around with any type of blues tunes, even in an impromptu backstage jam. "Woke this morning, had them Statesboro blues....". Nah, I can't fathom that shit at all.

    Although they did record an album in Nashville, which is pretty amazing in itself.

    don't think of Geoff as a blues jam session guy at all...never been a big fan of QRyche but that guy does have one powerful voice.
    ...and in the end, on dreams we will depend...

    I love Queensryche, Operation Mindcrime is one of my favorite albums by anybody, period.

    They went downhill after DeGarmo left in my opinion.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I was kinda half-kidding, if you dig QR that's cool (I don't).

    The comment about the 'simple' stuff they were jamming, well, Tate should
    watchit cuz we all know Satch could eat their current guitarist for lunch.

    I'm not a huge fan and don't own any of their records, just familiar with their most famous songs. That said they delivered a very strong performance last Sunday - I'm saying this from a "non fan" perspective. Geoff Tate in particular. They got a good response from the crowd as well.

    I don't think Geoff meant it as a knock at all. I feel he was trying to convey the laid back atmosphere backstage at the CF show. Everyone warming up with a simple, big, fat groove and tasty guitar playing can really help set the tone sometimes. Not so challenging as to make you have to think too much, a simple jam session can really loosen a musician up.
