In celebration of the release of the 20th Anniversary Edition of QUEENSRŸCHE EMPIRE on November 9th (EMI/Capitol), check out the stream of RESISTANCE (recorded live at London’s Hammersmith Odeon on 11/15/90).
QUEENSRŸCHE – RESISTANCE (Live in London):
“Resistance” became the tour opener for the Queensrÿche shows of the 90s. Singer Geoff Tate and guitarist Michael “Whip” Wilton share their thoughts:
“The song Resistance was a song written about protecting the environment. This is a cause I felt connected to when we wrote the song and a cause I still feel strongly about today.” – GEOFF TATE
“Resistance was one of the last songs recorded for Empire. I had the parts ready and Chris (DeGarmo) and I pieced the music together for Geoff to sing this idea he had about the resistance in America at the time. The song recorded fast and my solo was a one taker. Kind of a whip jig.” – MICHAEL WILTON
