Radio Chatter with Geoff Tate (Queensryche/Operation: Mindcrime)

Believe or not, "Operation: Mindcrime" just turned 30 years old in May. Geoff is out on tour doing the entire album at each stop. We talk a lot about the album and how it was recorded. He told me about the now famous "Dr. Davis, telephone, please....Dr. Davis telephone" and how it ended up on the album. How the concept of the record is timeless and still parallels society today, and lots more about the record. It was great to pick his brain about this classic album.

With the 8th anniversary of Ronnie James Dio's passing, Geoff tells me his thoughts on him and how he helped Queensryche. I had to ask him about motorcycle riding, his keys to success and more.

Check out my last couple conversations with Geoff here.
