QUEENS TAKE ON THE PRESIDENT: The state of the American bodypolitic has encouraged Queensryche to reactivate a lot of their Operation:Mindcrime album for their current tour. Geoff Tate explained that the band see a lot of similarities between the situation now and 1988, when they created the concept album. (They're talking about nutty right wing presidents, of course). He's also quick to defend their credibility:

"It just depends on what you want to do with your life," he said. "We never looked at our career or our music as a sporting event. We're not out there competing with another band or anybody musically or monetarily. We're just writing music, playing music and traveling around and playing our music for people. And it is really a simple concept."

Which makes them sound less like enormo-spectacle hair rockers and more like the Handsome Family.
