PAMELA MOORE: QUEENSRŸCHE's 'Sister Mary' Talks About Touring, Upcoming Projects

The Breakdown Room recently conducted an online exclusive interview with Pamela Moore, the voice of "Sister Mary" from QUEENSRŸCHE's legendary concept album "Operation: Mindcrime". Ms. Moore discusses her entire career, ranging from her first influences, to her big break as the voice of Sister Mary, to current projects she is working on. A couple of excerpts from the interview follow:

On recent QUEENSRŸCHE tour:

"This time around I was able to sing more and help out on vocals. The latter part of the year we really concentrated on bringing to life the Mindcrime show. Since I do have a theater background it was very enjoyable to pull that out again."

On the Sister Mary death scene, in which the character commits suicide by putting a bullet in her head:

"I didn't realize it was so bloody. At the time [the show] was being rehearsed, I was on my honeymoon and wasn't able to return until a day before the tour started."

On recording her parts for the "Operation: Mindcrime" album:

"Geoff's [Tate] vocals were already recorded, so I recorded my parts separately. I think the first time we ever sang the song together was when I toured with them on the [Building Empires] tour.

"Nothing can ever compare to the adrenaline rush you get singing in front of so many fans. It was then I realized how fortunate I was to have been able to participate in something so special."

On being hired by AC/DC's Brian Johnson to sing on some songs for a Broadway play:

"I'm not sure where that project is at right now, but I can say the experience was awesome. [Brian's] a wonderful man to get to know and a very prolific and creative writer too."
