Good news for fans of terrible news, Geoff Tate is actively seeking to make a record worse than Operation: Mindcrime 2! Tate announced to a thrilled crowd that (I made that part up) he was taking the name Queensryche and running it into the deepest parts of the ground. And I quote:
“Today is a new day and I am thrilled to announce the new Queensrÿche.Joining me are: Rudy Sarzo, Bobby Blotzer, Glen Drover, Kelly Gray and Randy Gane. Together we shall embark on a new musical journey that will be a greater extension of where Queensrÿche has ever been.” – Geoff Tate
Holy shit, did anyone else actually laugh out loud for a split second? Sure, now that the sheer novelty of it has worn off, I’m pissed that he refuses to let the name die. Queensyrche have become the Michael Myers of the music world, I mean, come on, guys. Really? What’s next? Mini-tour with Nickelback?
Shame on you, Geoff Tate. Shame on you.
