Hi everyone. Queensrÿche will join us at approximately 6 p.m. today, June 24. This thread will remain locked during the chat to make things easier for me to post the questions and them to post the answers. I'll open the thread up for commentary following the chat.

But tune in HERE at 6 p.m.! And thanks to the guys in Queensrÿche for this special treat!  :metal:

There was a complete Warning album already mixed by James Guthrie that had a different song sequencing prior to the album being sent to Val Garay and the songs put in a different order. Does the band have a copy of that original "Director's Cut" of Warning that began with NM 156 and will they ever release it? (BrettMiller)

MIchael -- Unfortunately, all that anyone has is the cassettes. They were demoed to cassetts. I have a cassette of the original and actually played it for Todd. Todd was blown away at things not in the recording. At this point in time there are no plans to release it other than to transfer it before it oxidizes.

Todd – Could you  perhaps tell us some things about yourself, like your birthday, the "musical family" you were born in, what your fondest memory is of the time you were drumming in Florida, what you consider to be your "home" ever since you jumped onto this roller coaster, et cetera? (Eddyspeeder)

Todd - My birthday is Feb. 19, 1974. I'm a Florida native. I'm a very family-oriented person and consider myself extremely loyal and faithful.

Fondest memory was probably in the early 90s when I was drumming in the club circuit. I recorded an album with a band as a drummer and that was really when I was playing full time as a musician for a living in my late teens and early 20s.

Florida is what I consider home.

Was there a specific moment/song/riff etc. during the making of the new record that had you guys look around with a huge “wow” moment?  (rukh316)

Michael -- The first thing I received was some demoed drums for Redemption. WHen I wrote that song I played it for the guys at Scott's house and I think that was a wild moment.  The vocals of Todd in there, which really made everybody in the room's jaws drop.

Scott - well our plans currently is were out supporting the new record all summer long in the U.S. We have a huge tour that starts in the U.S. in September. So our current plans is the normal show promoting the record. Anything is possible in the future, but our focus is on promoting the new album live.

The last few lines of 'In This Light' are missing from the lyrics sheet (it sounds something like, "I'll break these chains for you / you are the chains for me / for all eternity"); if you please, what are these lyrics? (EvilAshLives)

Will Parker take on more of the live soloing duties in the future?  If so, are there any songs in particular we can look forward to where he'll be featured on a solo by himself? (EvilAshLives)

Parker -- When I first joined the band, it was supposed to be a temporary fill in, hired gun sort of thing playing rhythm guitar. As time has progressed, it became what was comfortable. I've worked really hard to represent those lead parts I do play accurately. With the new material there are a lot of dual solos, so I'll be playing them anyway.

I think fans prefer the original guitar player playing the leads. That being said and with where we're at, I wouldn't mind playing more solos.

As a band, what do you see as your biggest challenges as you reinvent/reclaim your sound? (MindcrimeRycher)

Scott -- I think our biggest challenges are really more imposed on ourselves. We're enjoying our chemistry together in such a great way. Our biggest challenge is to keep pushing ourselves to play the best shows we can and write and keep writing the best music we can. We've done that on the new record and the live shows.

Todd – with your musical background, do you and the band plan to possibly incorporate some of your guitar or percussion talents in the future, live or in studio? (Walkin Theshire)

Todd -- As for now, my musicality is being offered during the songwriting process. It is not out of the realm of possibility to incorporate my abilities in a live situation, so I would never close the door on it.

Scott – love your drumming on this LP how many different sized toms did you use when recording the album and since it has so many intricate fills and time changes do you think it will be difficult to re-create that level of playing live? (Stifle the Fear)

Scott -- I used six. Eight inch, 10 inch, 12 inch, 13 inch, 16 inch and 18 inch. Ya know, I'm working at my best right now to represent what we did in the studio. So the short answer is yes, I'll re-create everything we did on the record.
