Geoff Tate’s split with Queensyrche in 2012 was so acrimonious that it dragged on in courts for several years — Tate, as the band’s principal songwriter, believing he should own the Queensryche moniker. In the end, only Tate’s bandmates were allowed to record and perform under the Queensryche banner and Tate as Operation: Mindcrime — also the name of Queensryche’s 1988’s concept album.
Earlier this year, Operation: Mindcrime released Resurrection, their second album in two years; the band is currently on tour in Europe but will return to the States in January to support it. In between dates, BlastEcho got an opportunity to play Rockers’ Block with Tate (coming soon!) and also ask him about he possibility of reuniting with his Queensyrche bandmates. Listen to what he had to say:
BlastEcho is the only music website on the planet (warning: hyperbole) that’s all original content. In other words, it’s new, not what you already knew. Here you’ll find the latest on your favorite classic rock, alternative and pop artists, as well as those you may have forgotten (or would rather forget). We’ll post it as fast as our shoestring staff can (is that a tiny violin we hear?)
There will be new music, too, for you to discover and, hopefully, some entertaining, ground-breaking features. Did we miss anything? Oh, yeah, thanks for stopping by. We’re very appreciative!
