Blabbermouth asked that question. Tate says he’s up for it, now it’s up to Queensryche I guess.
When asked about the now-infamous “knife incident”, Geoff said, “Definitely, I regret my actions that night,” he said. “And I’m not making any excuses for it; it was definitely the wrong way to handle things. And I’m not trying to justify it, but bands are bands and we’re a bunch of guys, and sometimes guys are physical [laughs], and it’s happened many times over the years. The Who, for example, is a band that is pretty known for getting into brawls and things like this. It’s not uncommon, definitely.”
I don’t think Tate’s a bad person, he’s an artist, so are Queensryche, artists can be emotional sometimes. Maybe they can patch it up. Who knows.
But on the other hand, I’m curious what the new Queensryche with Todd La Torre have in store. I dig the return to the metal. I want to see what they can do, because the Queensryche name has been (in my opinion) tarnished in recent years by substandard albums and cabarets and all this. I’d like to see Queensryche make a real metal album again, and I don’t know if they can do that with Geoff Tate.
But what do I know? I’m just a guy.
What do you think?
