Added DiffLines:

* FanNickname:

** Eddie's nick is Edbass (or One Take), Wilton's is Whip (based on one of his teachers commenting that his fingers would "whip" around the fretboard), Scott's is [=SRock=], and Tate's (not in a good way) is Vest.

Added DiffLines:

* BlackSheepHit: Their one and only Top 40 single, "Silent Lucidity", is a Music/PinkFloyd-esque orchestral ballad with no traces of the band's trademark prog-metal.


** EMI America also meddled directly for the only time with ''The Warning'', where the band went $300,000 over budget during the recording and the label took the recordings away from them and handed them to Val Garay for final mixing. As described by Geoff Tate, Garay had "no clue what Queensrÿche was. He never listened to hard rock music and didn't take input from anyone in the band. He just mixed it according to how he thought it should sound. No one in the band could listen to that record. We all hated it."
