INTERVIEW: Michael Wilton – Queensryche


QUEENSRYCHE is on their way back to Australia for the first time with new vocalist Todd La Torre. Michael tells us all about the new lease of life for the band, his favourite albums, how he got into music and a packed year on the road… We also get to talk beer and his own Whip Ale.

It’s been a few years now since Queensryche parted ways with original vocalist Geoff Tate in rather acrimonious circumstances, and whilst there’s been plenty of bad blood in the battle for the fans hearts the new revamped line-up with Todd La Torre at the helm seems to be winning. Indeed the band seems to have a new lust of life – you can see it in the stage show and hear it when you listen to the band’s latest album ‘Condition Human’.
