QUEENSRŸCHE Backing Vocalist PAMELA MOORE Interviewed; Audio Available

The Metal Crypt recently conducted an interview with singer Pamela Moore — best known for her performance as Sister Mary on QUEENSRŸCHE's 1988 epic concept album "Operation: Mindcrime" and 2006's epic sequel "Operation: Mindcrime II". You can now listen to the chat in four parts below.

Pamela Moore's latest CD, "Stories from a Blue Room", was helmed by Grammy Award-winning producer Neil Kernon and features 11 songs that were co-written by Benjamin Anderson (ex-RORSCHACH TEST). The recording and mixing took place at Sonic Ranch Studios and Robert Lang Studios with Jason Kowalski (N17, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS) on drums, Jeff Loomis (NEVERMORE) on guitar, Michael Wilton (QUEENSRŸCHE, SOULBENDER) and Anderson, Brian Gordon (ION VEIN) on bass and even some backing vocals provided by Terri Nunn (BERLIN).

Despite her rise to stardom through her dramatic and captivating portrayal of Sister Mary in "Operation: Mindcrime", Pamela Moore has also found fame in her own right, having released her own recordings, contributed her voice to various radio and television commercials, and has a background in theater.

Pamela was given the opportunity to record her first album with a now-defunct Seattle-based record label First American Records. Her first release, 1981's "Take a Look", did very well regionally and was one of the stepping stones that led her down the path she finds herself now. A second LP, "You Wont Find Me There", which was released in 1982, never had a chance to surface as the company folded just after its release. Billboard magazine penned her as an AOR, blue-eyed soul artist, destined for success which was a far cry from what was to be her most memorable endeavor, QUEENSRŸCHE.

After the immense success of the "Operation: Mindcrime" world tour, Pamela moved on to other endeavors such as recording songs with a band called RADAR out of New York, living there for two years to work on her craft before returning home to Seattle. RADAR released its debut album, "RPM", in 2000. Other projects Pamela has been involved with are include work with Brian Johnson of AC/DC, singing backup on a few selected concerts with Paul Rodgers of BAD COMPANY and QUEEN, and cameo stage appearances with her cousin, Terri Nunn of BERLIN.
