.
On Tuesday Former Queensryche Guitarist Chris DeGarmo Returns was a top story. Here is the recap: (Prog) Former Queensryche guitarist Chris DeGarmo has returned to music by appearing on his daughter's debut EP. The co-founder left the prog metal outfit in 1997, and he's kept out of the limelight until working with 22-year-old Rylie on six-track self-titled release The Rue.

DeGarmo, now a private jet pilot, didn't want to push her into an interest in music - but when she was 15 she heard him playing an acoustic guitar and told him, "I think I've got something for that." He tells Billboard: "I'd just been waiting years for that."

He says of The Rue: "There's not a bunch of window dressing and high-production values - but it's heavy on an emotional connection and it has a directness to it. I'm really proud."

Rylie adds: "Music is my favourite thing in the world. It's the stuff of life for me, my soul's content. I feel so alive and happy and functional when I'm making music - I'd love to pursue it." Read more and check a video - here.
