Queens on a Chessboard

A queen on an English chessboard is able to attack in the same row, column and diagonal. The probability that 2 randomly placed queens on an 8 by 8 chessboard will be able to attack each other can be expressed as \( \frac {a}{b} \), where \(a\) and \(b\) are positive, coprime integers. What is the value of \(a + b\)?

Details and assumptions

The 2 queens will not be placed on the same square.
