Tony Harnell revealed in a recent interview that in the early ‘90s he was approached several times for a collaboration from some big names in rock and metal, as well as some pretty unusual ones, for which he haven’t talked about too much.

Talking to Vinyl Music Writer the singer said that “Realized Fantasies” his phone started ringing…

“I was offered — I can’t remember if it was an audition, offered, or just that they were interested in talking to me about it — but Dream Theater approached me before they got James (LaBrie). I remember going to see them and being blown away, but thinking to myself, ‘I don’t know where to sing.’ And I did get a phone call from Yngwie (Malmsteen) during that period as well. I also made it to the final three that Judas Priest was considering to replace Rob Halford. They really liked me, apparently, the thing that I heard, was that my hair was too long. I thought, ‘That’s stupid. I’ll fuckin’ cut it, man!’ And I did end up cutting it not long after that.”
