Geoff Tate Launching His Own Version of Queensryche

(Classic Rock) Queensryche fans have been left bemused as sacked singer Geoff Tate delivered on his threat to launch his own version of the band.

He's announced that next year he'll front an "all-star lineup" for an anniversary tour under the title Queensryche Starring Geoff Tate, The Original Voice.

Last month he went to court in an attempt to stop his former bandmates using their name, arguing that they couldn't do so without support of 80% of their company directors, which they couldn't achieve since he was 25% of the board.

When that failed, he argued that the ruling meant they were free to call themselves Queensryche but that he could do the same.
