QUEENSRŸCHE – Guitarist Michael Wilton Says Band Wouldn’t Rerecord Classics With Todd LaTorre
November 25, 2015, 4 years ago
Australia’s Rabid Noise podcast conducted an interview with Queensrÿche guitarist Michael Wilton and talked about the possibility of rerecording Queensrÿche classics.
Wilton said: “The offers have come, yes, but as of right now, it's just… If the record company wants that right now, you've got licensing issues. Some of the older songs, we have to figure out what control do we have over them. But I would tell you… I mean, in my opinion, I would never rerecord a studio album with Todd. If it was a live album, sure — I'd welcome that. I would love, on record, CD, or whatever, the fans to hear Todd singing the old songs, 'cause he's just badass and he sounds great."
Queensrÿche will kick-off the New Year with a massive bang embarking on a lengthy North American headlining run. The trek kicks off on January 7th and goes through February 5th. Queensrÿche just wrapped up a massive direct support tour to the legendary Scorpions across North America. See below for the complete list of new headlining dates.
Queensrÿche’s new, full-length offering, Condition Hüman (Century Media Records) debuted at #27 on the Billboard Top 200 charts with 13,798 units sold. The disc sees LaTorre deliver the performance of a lifetime on what is now his sophomore recording effort with the band. Produced by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed) in the band’s native Washington, Condition Hüman is a new mountain towering over many of the peaks and valleys of the hard rock landscape.
