Queensrÿche starring Geoff Tate
2012-09-03 by Voivod STAFF | 42 Comments
Ex-Queensryche singer Geoff Tate has formed his own version of Queensryche, and he is already booking shows as "Queensrÿche starring Geoff Tate: The Original Voice".


The band lineup is as follows:

Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake) – bass
Bobby Blotzer (Ratt) – drums
Glen Drover (Megadeth, King Diamond, Eidolon) – guitar
Kelly Gray (Queensrÿche, Myth) – guitar
Randy Gane (participated in the “Rage for Order” tour) – keyboards


Commenting on his aforementioned decision, Geoff Tate said:

The difficult thing in being in a creative environment is to keep things into a fresh perspective and working with the same people for 30 years just won't cut it in that respect. You get into the room and you just know what everybody is going to do next, the band chemistry is dated and the ways of expression are being recycled over and over again.

This new project, this new lineup is an entirely new situation. Every member brings new ideas and different musical backgrounds to the table and in effect the music becomes more and more interesting

Glenn Drover, you're better than this. I mean, shit, didn't you quit Megadeth to go be with your family? Why the fuck are you coming out of retirement to hang out with Geoff Tate of all people?

what a dick. too bad nobody in the original queensryche will sue him or do anything besides whimper and absorb the blows.
Tate was the last one added to the classic Ryche lineup, and he did the most to fuck the band's name up. Fuck him, he shouldn't have shit, unless it relates to Queensryche's last 6 albums, which is worse than shit

But he should, despite all that bad albums since 1995, I still have respct for Tate and Queensryche beacuse of their albums until promise land. Sadly, those actions made by Tate are making of the once skilled singer a joke.

That's exactly what I thought when I saw Drover's name.

He should reform Eidolon, instead of participating in this travesty.



Tate was the last one added to the classic Ryche lineup

For that reason alone, he shouldn't use the Queensryche moniker...

That... Right there. Really? What the hell is going on?! This dude was like my idol as a kid. The whole band was. It was the best thing that happened to my ears. I mean, I'll still listen to see where this goes but damn Tate and his arrogance.
