Madbassist1: That is in incredibly poor taste.

Yes, putting a MySpace URL on anything in 2009 was pretty unforgiveable.

Kill him, that's all you have to do.  He's a risk, and get the manager as well.

And somewhere Chris DeGarmo is laughing, although both sides claim they're on good terms with him.

What makes this even funnier is that Parker Lundgren, the guitarist in the non-Tate 'ryche, was married to the aforementioned fan club-running stepdaughter for a few months.  Judging by where he is now I think it's safe to say we know whose side he's on.  Geoff must have absolutely loved that he was throwing these out in the crowd too:

I can't believe there's enough of an audience to support one Queensryche much less two. Until this whole thing flared up I could have sworn they broke up in the mid-90s.

Didn't this happen with Great White too? You'd think each band would be trying to force the other to take the name.

"It's yours!"
"No you take it!"

Lead singer Geoff Tate reportedly confronted his bandmates after learning that his wife, also the band's manager, had been dismissed along with his stepdaughter, who ran the group's fan club.

Had this band never watched Spinal Tap?

Mikey1969: 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.

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

Tate's band should tour under the name "Yardbirds".  Situation resolved.

basemetal: Madbassist1: basemetal: Can't say I care, can't say I'd go see them live anyway.

/and I go to a lot of concerts,
//they were part of the late 80's hair bands that became tired, predictable, and ordinary

Queensryche is not a hair band, although they came up in that timeframe. Poison is a hairband. Motley Crue is a hairband. Queensryche is not.

/I dont particularly like them.
//Their somgs always sound sterile
///Like they were built using an instruction manual.

There's no call for restoring to that.


I have to stop doing tech support and reading threads at the same time.

Let's hope the 'wrong' version doesn't get the keys to the "Defiant".

we'll never convince the Romulans it was a transporter accedent

I always liked Queensryche because it was the gateway band for musicians who had no idea what prog really was to call their own music progressive which of course led us to the Trans Siberian Orchestra, one of the signs of the apocalypse.

Yeah, I've heard about this..  I heard one of the new albums, sounded alright, but most of the 'reviews' were 1 star, complete with rants about how no one should buy it, and everyone should support the REAL Queensryche.. I don't remember which was which.
