Former American Idol finalist and heavy-metal recording artist James Durbin got married earlier this month, and one of his idols, Geoff Tate of Queensrÿche, made a surprise appearance at the wedding reception, where the two ended up singing an impromptu duet on the Queensrÿche song “Take Hold of the Flame” together. A big fan of Revolver‘s who was recently spotted wearing a Revolver T-shirt on the set of Conan, Durbin has kindly shared video of the performance exclusively with us. Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments. Durbin’s new album, Memories of a Beautiful Disaster, is out now; his next music video, “Stand Up,” premieres next week.
