    read this:

    Queensryche guitarist Parker Lundgren says singer Geoff Tate threatened to “kill” drummer Scott Rockenfield after a concert during which he’d attacked two of his bandmates.

    The frontman assaulted Rockenfield and guitarist Michael Wilton before warning bassist Eddie Jackson “You’re next,” then later regretted he hadn’t hit Wilton hard enough, says Lundgren in a court submission.

    The drama took place after the band’s performance in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in April – an event which led to “Operation Knifecrime” rumours circulating online, alleging Tate had pulled a blade on the other members of Queensryche.

    Probably mad the drummer wouldn't let him suck his dick. Geoff Tate is one of those Travolta types. His repressed gayness expresses itself in bizarre ways.

    He's going on with his own version of Queensryche starting next year..

    [h=3]Tate launches his own Queensryche[/h]17th Aug 2012 | 07:40
    Sacked singer announces anniversary tour with all-star lineup to beleaguered fans' bemusement
    [​IMG]All-star lineup: Geoff Tate
    Queensryche fans have been left bemused as sacked singer Geoff Tate delivered on his threat to launch his own version of the band.
    He's announced that next year he'll front an "all-star lineup" for an anniversary tour under the title Queensryche Starring Geoff Tate, The Original Voice.
    Last month he went to court in an attempt to stop his former bandmates using their name, arguing that they couldn't do so without support of 80% of their company directors, which they couldn't achieve since he was 25% of the board.
    When that failed, he argued that the ruling meant they were free to call themselves Queensryche – but that he could do the same.
    A brief statement via on band's official Facebook page, which his ex-colleages are trying to regain from him, says: "This fall, Geoff Tate Electric Band will be releasing his new solo metal album on Inside Out Music, which features such label mates as King’s X, Fates Warning, Pain of Salvation and Dream Theater’s frontman James LaBrie, and many others! Geoff Tate solo tour dates with Alice Cooper beginning in November.
    "Watch for the announcement of the upcoming 2013 Queensryche Anniversary Tour featuring an All-Star lineup, starring Geoff Tate, the longtime creative and driving force behind the band, whose vocals can be heard on every Queensryche song ever released!"
    Fans were quick to point out that the track All I Want from 1997 album Here in the Now Frontier featured ex-guitarist Chris DeGarmo on lead vocals, although Tate provided backing.
    At time of publishing, 850 people had liked the post and 325 had commented. While some of those showed support, many more expressed anger and bewilderment. Some referred to recent revelations that the singer assaulted and spat on his bandmates ahead of a concert in Brazil in April. Others discussed his argument that he'd written all of the band's recent music, and a 2011 interview in which he suggested rock and metal fans could be "boneheads".
    Comments included:
    Will he spit on us if we sit close? Or is that reserved for friends and business associates?
    So now that you're a solo artist you decided to make metal again? What about those 20 years of boring alterna-prog music?
    So now, Geoff decides "metal" is OK. Prior to the split he was constantly bashing it and those who listen to it. Nice try to spin the fans back, but you failed!
    Why is the guy who hates metal and hates being labeled metal making a metal album?
    Tate should fire whoever was giving him career advice. Going out as "Queensryche starring Geoff Tate the Original Voice" is just going to tick off more fans and alienate him even more. He should feel confident enough in his abilities to simply be "Geoff Tate" or "Geoff Tate, former singer of Queensryche". What a mess.
    Todd La Torre is the voice of Queensryche now. Mr. Tate blew it when he assaulted his former bandmates. Stop degrading the Queensryche name with your easy-listening crap and just change this to Geoff Tate's solo page.
    I wonder if I can put together my own band and call it Queensryche? Seems like it's the thing to do these days. And I guarantee my band will sound more like QR than his version. Let it go, Geoff. Keep whatever dignity you have left and move on. I loved your voice, but now you're just embarrassing yourself.
    Geoff can want to do whatever he likes musically, but on his own, he is not QR. He will never be QR. Robert Plant is not Led Zeppelin. Steven Tyler is not Aerosmith. DLR is not Van Halen. The same holds true here. I'm sorry that Geoff's ego can't handle the fact that he got fired by the rest of Queensryche, but life goes on. This entire press release reeks of desperation, and frankly it looks classless.
    Time to retire the name. Queensryche was the collective creation of all these forces together. It will never sound the same with parts of that missing no matter who is at fault. In the old days when bands split they joined forces with others and came up with a new name. It's simply lame that Tate or the musical portion of the band were to continue using the name. Queensryche no longer exists. Move on.

    I'm with you. I still love that CD. "Sister Mary," is one of the coolest tracks ever. To this day whenever I hear an automatic car window I always think to myself, "Kill Mary?"

    I saw them once. They opened for Def Leppard. Geoff Tate's voice blew away Joe Eliot. In fact, the vocals during Def Leppard's set were so horribly ruined by guitarist Phil Collin, I could barely listen to them. Queensryche were great, though. Really, really good.

    my favorite concert i seen was 1990, it was the Empire tour. Queensryche opened for metallica. they played hits off all there cds(albums, whatever). then they did the whole fucking album of mindcrime. they did it like it was the cd. geoff was singing to mary and mary was singing back to him on a huge screen tv. that was the best concert i have ever seen. unbelievable. oh and i left after queensryche went on. was never a metallica fan.

    I lost interest in them ever since I went to one of their concerts and it turned into a fucking broadway play.
