I posted this over at the Monsters of Rock Facebook page regarding Queensryche and Todd, the new lead vocalist for the band. My humble opinion:
I read through all the comments and debated whether or not to chime in and I flipped a coin and heads it was! Onto my 2 cent rant. I personally had the opportunity to see Queensryche at Halfway Jam (we did our set before they did theirs) and I’m here to tell you that Todd has breathed new life into the band. Not only does he have the pipes to deliver the vocals but more important, he is as nice and as humble as they come. He’s excited about the music and performance and doesn’t take it for granted and it shows. I’ve never met Geoff Tate personally so I certainly can’t comment on who he is nor would I want to but I can say that it was a joy for me to see Queensryche with a sense of excitement and passion to perform. I’m quite biased and I don’t throw compliments around unless they are earned and Todd more then earned my respect and applause at Halfway Jam.
Change is always a bit uncomfortable but sometimes it’s for the best. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed…… See you on the cruise ~ Michael Sweet
