About the Site

AnybodyListening.net is not affiliated with Queensryche. It is owned and operated by author/archivist Brian Heaton as a nonprofit information center about the band's original lineup. The site features a comprehensive historical essay, discography and tour date archive. It also includes a music/personal blog offering opinion and news on Queensryche. Many of the article scans, ticket stubs, pictures and various other media have been sent to the author by fellow fans, who share a similar interest in preserving the history of Queensryche's early years.

The site started initially under the banner of "Breaking the Silence" in 1996, and was focused on Queensryche's live performances. That site morphed into "The Breakdown Room" in 1998-1999, when it became more of a tribute site to the band. A message board followed in 2004, which was active for more than a decade. The site rebranded to "AnybodyListening.net" in 2006, and ultimately, the content is now centered on Queensryche's original lineup and members. Take a look at some of the different looks the site has had over the years:

AnybodyListening.net would not exist if not for the hard work of many that came before me. First and foremost, a big thank you to Brett Miller, Johan Wall, Dan Birchall, Kevin Scurlock and Amy Lee, whose information back in the late 1990s helped set the template for what this site has become over the years. In addition, thanks to Staci Heaton, Gregory Twachtman, John Schneiderwind, and Raf Ahrayeph for the editing. Additional thanks to Rob Kotynski, Marshal Schoener, Larry Fulkerson, Marcus Mannertorp, and the whole "Promised Land" gang from the late-1990s and early-2000s.

This site is dedicated to the late David "London" Ascoli.
