Queensryche have been in the headlines for a good portion of the year, and not under the best circumstances. In a new interview, guitarist Michael Wilton reveals just how bad things got during the alleged physical confrontation between himself and singer Geoff Tate.
The back and forth between Geoff Tate and his former bandmates in Queensryche continues with Tate’s preliminary injunction that was filed this past Thursday (July 12) in King County Superior Court in Seattle.
Queensryche’s Michael Wilton, Parker Lundgren, Scott Rockenfield and Eddie Jackson have answered former lead singer Geoff Tate’s lawsuit and accusations regarding his firing and the band’s new direction. In documents obtained by Blabbermouth, Wilton details almost 25 years of troubles that led to Tate’s June ousting.
Queensryche and longtime singer Geoff Tate have gone their separate ways, but the vocalist is disputing the reasons why. Tate says rather than “creative differences,” which was cited by the band in their press release, he says it’s more related to the business side of their operations.
Last week Queensryche lead singer Geoff Tate found out he was fired when lawyers for the remaining members sent his lawyer a long legal document. After 30 years together, their relationship ended unceremoniously, but it sounds like the legal battle has just begun.
Queensryche has finally pulled the trigger on the decision to continue without singer Geoff Tate, following weeks of speculation and a series of rumored and public squabbles with their longtime bandmate.
The first voice to emerge with an explanation about the current goings-on with Queensryche is not one you would expect. Singer Geoff Tate’s stepdaughter Miranda has hopped online to rundown the situation and clarify some of the reporting that’s been done on the group’s recent dealings.
What looks like Queensryche, sounds like Queensryche but isn’t really Queensryche? Well, it’s complicated. Tonight, the rock band is scheduled to play West Valley City, Utah, but only singer Geoff Tate will be there.
Queensryche‘s publicist has issued a statement in the wake of wild (and unconfirmed) reports stating that singer Geoff Tate physically attacked and threatened two of his bandmates during a recent soundcheck, allegedly even brandishing a knife at one point.
He left his mark on rock & roll, and now a tribute to Ronnie James Dio is on the way. Black Country Communion vocalist Glenn Hughes says he and several other hard rock notables have committed to the project.
