INTERVIEW: Northwest Herald (Todd La Torre)

As lead singer of Queensryche, Todd La Torre knows what it’s like to have a song take you back to a teenage cruise with a best friend.

He was that teen, listening on cassette tape to the very heavy metal band he now fronts – his favorite band since the age of 14.

“I met those guys [the band] when I was a teenager and saw them sell out the arena where I live,” said La Torre, who joined the band about four years ago and has released two albums with Queensryche – the latest, “Condition Human,” landed at No. 27 on the Billboard 200 last year.
