Producer Says Queensryche Wasn't On Mindcrime II

(Classic Rock) The producer behind Queensryche's 2006 album Operation Mindcrime II claims that only singer Geoff Tate and later-sacked guitarist Mike Stone appeared on the album.

Jason Slater was hired for the follow-up to the band's platinum hit 1988 release, and worked on their next two releases. He insists drummer Scott Rockenfield didn't even appear in the recording studio during sessions, and work done by guitarist Michael Wilton and bassist Eddie Parker had to be binned.

Slater's statement is part of Tate's court filing in answer to the allegations levelled on him by the band who sacked him last month. The parties are fighting over ownership of the band name and arguing over who has done most damage to the brand's value.
