Interview with Queensryche guitarist Parker Lundgren

June 2017

One of the biggest rock/metal bands from the 80’s & 90’s returned to Madison for this year’s 2017 Brat Fest. Queensrÿche, which had success with releases Operation Mindcrime (1988, certified Platinum) and Empire (1990, triple Platinum) came to Madison in support of their 2015 release Condition Hüman (US Billboard #27).  I had a chance to catch up with the band and guitarist Parker Lundgren who hails from the same small town in the Pacific Northwest as I do.  Parker Lundgren, lead/rhythm guitars and backing vocals, shared some of his thoughts on Madison, Queensrÿche and supporting fellow small town musicians. 

Maximum Ink: Queensrÿche has a long and rich history with Wisconsin and specifically Madison, including the recording of the live release Operation: LIVEcrime (1991 double Platinum). How hasa the reception been this year?
Parker Lundgren:
We love coming to Madison and Milwaukee. I love to ride, and Wisconsin has Harley Davidson. I’m a huge fan of bikes and have a sweet bike as well. The energy from the fans at shows is great and we can feel the magic of a live show like what we had here [at Brat Fest 2017].
