    Just saw the Rising West footage of some rarer classic Ryche songs and La Torre really nails it. About as spot on as you can get for Tate who was originally a Dickinson clone.

    Again, it amazes it took QR this long to find another singer since there are so many similar Dickinson/Tate clones around. Wilton has always been at odds with Tate since just before they recorded Tribe. Some of the early songs on the album allegedly were Geoff Tate solo songs.

    Of course the tr00 fans complain while holding their beers that GUFF TAT1 IZ QR and Rising West isn't QR but I don't really care. As long they write an old school metal for the new record who gives a crap how successful it is. And as long as Miranda Tate - Queensryche Cabaret Go Go Dancer isn't behind the show with her mother, who cares? Want an autograph from the Queensryche Cabaret Go Go Dancer? Then go to a Tate solo show and sip some wine while listening to acoustic, adult contemporary Queensryche covers.

    So the latest in this continuing shitstorm is that "Queensryche" opened for the Scorpions the other night which was Geoff Tate + 4 other musicians not named Michael, Parker, Ed and Scott. Seems he's pulled an Axl with the name.

    Methinks the band is finished. RIP 1982-2012.

    not sure how whats happened is the same as axl and GNR. queensryche was booked to open for the scorpions and the other 4 guys didn't show up. what did you expect geoff tate to not honor the contract get sued or loose money because the other dinks didn't show up

    Yeah, fair enough. I do think for booking reasons though, they should just say "until further notice, the entity as Queensryche is off limits. Either book Rising West or Geoff Tate."

    If I were going to see Queensyche and 4/5 of the band (I'll include Parker) aren't there, I'd be pissed.

    The only thing is, their new singer is really good. Better than Tate's been since the Empire days.

    It's kind of like if your parents divorced and your dad married a super-hot nice lady. Great, but she'll never be "mom".

    doesn't matter, you are now missing the 2 leaders of the band. nothing else even needs to be said other than that.

    Sad Queensrhyche has to end in such miserable poor taste.

    Its a bummer it ended so hostile just a let down for the fans. But i am sure it boils down to money and ego.

    Well, here's hoping Inside Out will bring out a metal-ish album from Tate. His old solo album had far more misses on it, but there were a couple of gems.
