Eufah Kennidiets: How quickly some Ryche fans forget DeGarmo wrote most of HiTNF and even convinced them to let him sing a song on it.

There are stories going around that although he did want to pursue his plane flying, part of the reason he left was his inability to get along with Tate (and it had been going on for awhile.)

He even came back for Tribe and originally wanted to tour, but he and Tate couldn't work it out.


DeGarmo was the creative force of the band. Without him, everything fell apart. They were never the same. As a long time fan, it took me far too long to realize everything I liked about the band originated with him. The melodies, choruses, guitar solos, etc.. that was all DeGarmo's doing.

I've heard interviews with GT recently where he basically disowns the old stuff where he would sing in the upper registers. It wasn't enough to say "I just don't like that much anymore." He basically said he can't stand those songs and refused to play them on tour, much to the disappointment of fans and the rest of the band (at the time). Obviously, that had a lo do with the fact that he can't farking sing them to save his life. No shiat, Geoff. No wonder you hate them. GT from the 80s and 90s is all I care to remember. He was brilliant then. I haven't bought a QR album since the early 2000s and I don't bother to listen to anything after Promised Land anymore.

Such a shame.

mjbok: Operation:  Mindcrime is one of my favorite albums of all time.  Saw QR on their Building Empires tour when they did OM beginning to end.  It was amazing.

OM2 is kind of shiatty.


I love Operation Mindcrime, and I'm bummed that I missed the shows when they would come through and play the full album. That said, I haven't heard anything from the band that really made me want to hear it again since Empire.

xaks: Geoff may be very intelligent


LOL... We watched 'Celebrity Jeopardy' once because I was under the same notion. We'd seen Scott Ian wipe the floor with everyone else's ass, I figure Geoff Tate couldn't be far behind, he'd always seemd smart. Holy Christ, it may just have been a SNL skit, Tate was that stupid. I mean, I'm actually impressed that he spelled his name right.

OM2 is like Caddyshack 2 or Blues Brothers 2000: something that has no reason to exist.
