Shame that this is how the once mighty Queensryche goes out. Fighting over the band name and the judge decides that both Tate and the rest of the band that kicked him out can continue to use the name. Brilliant! What gets me about that interview with Tate on TMS was that he didn't see it coming? He doesn't deny punching bandmates, kicking over drums and spitting on them but it is a surprise that they gave him the boot? Didn't notice when the other four formed a "side project" and played all Queensryche tunes? THAT wouldn't give someone a hint?
Whereas Tate didn't bother to come out to greet the fans at a small 1500+ venue, Rob plays a full show in Detroit, changes in the bus and STILL comes out to sign for the fans! All hail Rob and the boys! Metal GODS!
Yeah, I am pissed off watching Geoff Tate on "That Metal Show" and reading up on the story behind him getting booted from his own band!
"I was never a Metalhead?" says Tate? He was more into the Thompson Twins?! Didn't know why he was kicked out of the band while he was throwing temper tantrums? WTF?! Like a guy on Blabbermouth posted, why doesn't Ming the Merciless there just spit in all our collective metal faces as well. "Came out of the blue?!" Hell, long time coming. "Oh, I spit in their face before the show but I took care of them." Sounds like an abuser to me.
