Just weird to hear a guy sing Barracuda.  Todd does a great version of it but I feel the same about his version as I do about Adreniline Mob's version (which Russell Allen does as well as Todd on).

Here is a recent clip put up on the Queensryche  facebook page of Todd singing Saigon Kick's Love Is On The Way with Jason Bieler of Saigon Kick at his solo acoustic show in Tampa.

Here are a few more cool ones of Todd that haven't been added here yet.

Todd helping out Jeff Scott Soto with his band SOTO, last year in Tampa, FL on I Am A Viking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hboDRx8zxWs

Todd having some fun on drums with Slaughter on Mad About You from back in 2014 at Hairapalooza in Florida.

Perfect Strangers (Deep Purple cover) live with Matt LaPorte 2012 Florida. Todd on drums and vocals  8) Man does he channel some Dickinson on this one, sounds more Dickinson than Gillan.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEH6EkdQx1s

Psyaxis: Black Dawn Rising. Todd guesting on vocals live, not perfect sound quality but get to hear him doing some heavier metal here from 2012.

Good stuff  8) since the Queensryche album appears to be pretty much done, hope he's putting some time in working on that solo album. Really looking forward to hearing him do a solo record.

I was hoping he may have ended up on a few more songs on this record than just Discordia, but oh well at least he did one  8)

Judging by this, Todd is using the downtime to get his solo album completed  8)

Good call. Honestly, this gives lots of bands a chance to work on their new material.

NOOO... watch making them babies. The world already has too large of a population, that is why we're in this mess because the Chinese have to eat, and basically eat and farm every filthy creature that moves lol.

But yeah, I'm sure there will be a ton of new releases now in the next year, these bands all have plenty of time to create now. Some may opt to just take a rest since they all have to tour damn near nonstop to make a living. But many will work on new music I'm sure.

That would be cool if he can get that solo album together, I definitely look forward to hearing that.

There's a lively chat on La Torre's Facebook page (on 3/13/20) regarding a very timely and thought-provoking meme that he posted.

Soon thereafter, it unfortunately devolved into a fan tirade against perceived socialism, for whatever reason. It's a great read, and I applaud Todd for his unwavering stance.

Ugh, I can't seem to post the link!

Anyone, anyone? 😎

Ah yes, here it is: https://facebook.com/Official.ToddLaTorre/posts/2935593776462552?comment_id=2935632806458649
And I've linked to the comment in particular seeking to derail Todd's post entirely.

Funny how some of the comments are telling Todd to "stick to singing".
Allow me to supply with some Geoff on that very topic: https://youtu.be/kd1o3wfv8k8?t=322

Very cool news. Can't wait to hear that album, very anxious to hear what all different directions he goes with vocally on this release. I expect it to be mostly on the heavier side.
