Rage For Order (1986) introduced a much more polished look and sound for Queensrÿche. The album featured keyboards as prominently as guitars, and the group adopted an image more closely associated with glam rock or glam metal than with heavy metal (of which glam metal was a subgenre).

Empire (1990) included the hit ballad Silent Lucidity, which reached No. 9 on the Billboard singles chart, helped propel the album to No. 7 on the album chart and earned two Grammy Award nominations.

Tate’s solo band Operation: Mindcrime released three albums over three years as part of a trilogy: The Key (September 2015), Resurrection (September 2016) and The New Reality (December 2017).

    I saw the original line-up on the Rage tour, opening for AC/DC, no less. You could have heard a pin drop between songs. Fans knew these guys could play, but they just weren’t expecting a band that played like Priest and looked like Poison.
