How Queensryche Got Their Name

(Rock News Desk) Queensryche drummer Scott Rockenfield says the band didn't come up with many alternatives when it came to naming themselves.

He explains: "We started as a covers band playing Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, all the fun stuff. But with Geoff Tate singing with us we were able to play the more challenging songs. We were called The Mob but that didn't last long.

"We finished the four-song EP and realised we didn't have a name. So someone suggested we combined the words from our tune Queen of the Ryche, and that was it. more on this story
