Queensr˙che Covers Album Due in November

From Billboard Magazine:

Queensr˙che pays homage to some of its musical idols on Take Cover, a covers album due November 13 via Rhino. The Seattle group is putting its stamp on such numbers as PINK FLOYD's 'Welcome To The Machine', U2's 'Bullet The Blue Sky' and PETER GABRIEL's "Red Rain."

"We'll never top the originals; they're classics for a reason," singer Geoff Tate says. "We were more focused on finding different approaches that took the songs in unexpected directions."

He explains that the album gave the band a chance to have some fun. "During sound checks, [guitarists Mike Stone and Michael Wilton] like to play 'name that riff,' and sometimes the whole band joins in. That's really the way this album came together. We got together and started playing songs to each other, and then we picked our favorites."

Queensr˙che has only released a few covers, one of them being a powerful interpretation of 'Scarborough Fair' in the early 1990s. Some of the 11 selections naturally fit the band's progressive rock influences, particularly Pink Floyd and 'Innuendo' by QUEEN, one of Tate's favorite bands. Others will definitely raise eyebrows. The group is giving Broadway a spin by performing 'Heaven On Their Minds' from Jesus Christ Superstar, as well as the O'JAYS' R&B classic 'For Love of Money', the operatic 'Odissea' by Italian duo CARLO MARRALE AND CHEOPE and an acoustic version of BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD's "For What It's Worth."

Tate says he enjoyed the demanding arrangement of 'Odissea'. "I really like this song because there is a lot for a singer to sink his teeth into," he reports. "Plus I got a chance to sing in Italian, which was interesting, considering I don't speak a word of it."
