Tate's Got a Fake Gun
(antiMusic) Queensryche announced Sunday in a rather cryptic message on their official website that the band had been arrested at the Amsterdam airport for smuggling illegal firearms. They promised more details to come but nothing has been added to the official site. However KNAC reports that Geoff Tate's wife Susan issued a short explanation which still leaves us scratching our heads about what really happened, however we do know that it appears to be much ado about a fake gun. Susan says, "Geoff uses a fake gun as a prop in part of the Mindcrime set and it was in his bag going through the airport. This got someone arrested... I am still unclear on all the details."
Looks like they take their gun control laws very seriously in Europe as even fake guns will land you in trouble with big brother. Perhaps Mindcrime III will deal with that?
