Geoff Tate's Wife Led To Queensryche Split?

(Classic Rock) Queensryche decided they'd have to sack Geoff Tate when the singer made it clear he'd side with his wife, the band's manager Susan, rather than the creative team he fronted on stage.

The band admit the crunch came at their controversial show in Brazil during which Tate assaulted several of his colleagues. They say it was actually more than one incident and he's never apologised to them.

Speaking for the first time since a series of court papers revealed the depth of the prog metal outfit's disagreements, guitarist Michael Wilton tells Billboard: "In any other business, when someone does such a vicious act like that, they'd be fired on the spot. We got to that point."
