Geoff Tate, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?
“Well, let’s see. I think the first record album that I bought was ‘Meet the Beatles.’
But the first single that I bought – the first 45 – was Jefferson Airplane’s ‘Somebody to Love.’ I heard it on the radio, and I heard that guitar sound, and I said, ‘Oh, my God. That’s what I want to do. I want to make music like this.’ That was an incredible song.
And the first concert that I ever went to was Alice Cooper’s ‘Billion Dollar Babies’ Tour.”
Singer Geoff Tate and the rest of his bandmates in Queensryche will pull into Northern Lights in Clifton Park at 8pm on Sunday with their “Cabaret Show” featuring go-go dancers, burlesque dancers, drag queens, a juggler, ballet dancer, aerial artist, contortionist and much more.
