Queensryche Angered That Geoff Tate Made Mindcrime Movie Deal

(Classic Rock) Queensryche drummer Scott Rockenfield says the band were forced to fire singer Geoff Tate as a result of ongoing violent and dominating behaviour.

Rockenfield has detailed a series of events which he says proves they had no option but to oust the frontman, including a series of spitting and punching incidents ahead of a concert in Brazil in April.

He says Tate's statement that the band didn't write songs is untrue and that claims he taunted his ex-bandmate by saying "I've fired your family and now I'm going to fire you" is "a complete lie."

And he reveals the crunch came when the band discovered Tate had cut a secret deal to make a movie based on classic album Operation: Mindcrime.
