Queensryche vocalist Geoff Tate spoke with Time Off magazine about the band’s collaborations with Pamela Moore of Sister Mary and Ronnie James Dio on their latest album, ‘Operation: Mindcrime II’. “I was looking for a way to show how Nikki was experiencing the psychological drama that had a direct link to his past,” Tate said, referring to the central character in the album story’s plot. “It’s that inner voice that I thought would be interesting to be the voice of Sister Mary. I spoke to Moore about the role I had in my mind with Sister Mary, and she really liked the idea too. She helped with a lot of input in regards to what Sister Mary would say to Nikki.

He was my first and only choice, really.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
