Geoff Tate would be up for reuniting with Queensrÿche for at least one performance
Former Queensrÿche lead vocalist Geoff Tate was recently interviewed by Blast Echo and asked whether he would consider reuniting with Queensrÿche if the band was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
Tate replied (as transcribed by Sleaze Roxx from video below): “I suppose so. I suppose it would just be… It might be what’s needed, you know, to get everybody in the same room talking again, you know. Something like, something like that would probably be, you know, the catalyst for getting the band — at least you know one performance. I don’t know if that would be enough to getting everybody wanting to get back together again but you know, I’d be up for it.”
Back in mid-2012, Queensrÿche parted ways with Tate over “creative differences.” Both Tate and the band members kept going with their own respective versions of Queensrÿche before the two sides were able to come to an out of court settlement where Tate would continue as Operation: Mindcrime and be given exclusive rights to perform that album as well as Operation: Mindcrime II in their entirety in unique performances while the rest of the band consisting of bassist Eddie Jackson, drummer Scott Rockenfeld, guitarists Michael Wilton and Parker Lundgren, and new singer Todd la Torre forged ahead with the Queensrÿche name.
