Pamela Moore is famous for playing the role of Sister Mary from Queensrÿche’s legendary Operation: Mindcrime. She performed on stage with Toddrÿche at the Queensrÿche record release show in June, lending her voice once more to the chilling role on “Suite Sister Mary.”
In an interview conducted by Amps and Green Screens, Moore recently weighed in on performing with the band and her thoughts on the split with Geoff Tate:
Those guys are my friends and family, I’ve known them over 25 years now, so having them ask me to come sing with them was fun. I’d done it a couple of times before. Whenever they were in town, they’d ask if I wanted to come down and I’d always say yes. This time was a little bit different; I was singing “Sister Mary” with Todd. He’s a wonderful singer, and he has a lot of admiration for the band, so for him to be in the situation that he is now, it’s like a dream come true for him, I’m sure. But he also is his own man. We had gone over the song a couple times in rehearsal, and finally when it came time for me to come onstage, I waited ’till the last minute and Todd was on fire! I was like, “Well done!” It was really a fun situation to be in; the band was on, everyone seemed very lucid and relaxed, and I just wish them all the best.
The whole breakup situation [between Tate and the rest of Queensrÿche] has been tough for everybody in both camps, but sometimes when the smoke clears, the change is for the best, and you move on. And I really feel good about the guys, and what they’re doing, and more so they have to feel that way about themselves. At the end of the day, that’s all that matters.
A lot of you might be thinking that her opinion really doesn’t mean shit. Actually, it kind of does.
Pamela Moore has a new album to promote and easily could have put her name back in the headlines by touring with Taterÿche as the band continues to butcher the classic album at every venue they play.
Rather than blow the entire band off stage with a two-minute cameo and collect a check, Moore has decided to fly her vocal flag with the real version of Queensrÿche.
