Texas-based blues rockers ZZ Top and the progressive metal group Queensryche are among the acts confirmed to appear at this year's Sturgis Rally concert at the Buffalo Chip Music Festival. Billed as the "largest music festival in motorcycling," the annual event features a mix of classic rock and country acts. This year's rally takes place Aug. 2-11 in South Dakota.
The tumultuous year for Queensryche that is 2012 is ending on a scary note. Randy Gane, who is currently playing keyboards in lead singer Geoff Tate's version of the band, suffered a heart attack on Wednesday (Dec. 26) night.
Singer Geoff Tate has certainly had a harder-than-expected road to his new solo album 'Kings & Thieves,' which releases today (Nov. 6) via InsideOut Music. The hard rock veteran began the album as a side project from his day gig as the front man in Queensryche, but by the time it was completed he had been fired from the group he helped found three decades ago.
Queensryche vocalist Geoff Tate has announced the title and release date for his long-anticipated second solo album. The singer-songwriter and front man will release 'Kings & Thieves' on Nov. 6 via InsideOut Music.
The latest episode of the ongoing Queensryche soap opera could be titled 'A Tale of Two Queensryches.' Singer Geoff Tate has announced the musicians he's chosen for an entirely new lineup of the group that he is launching, while his former band mates also continue to use the name.
Singer Geoff Tate was the guest on Saturday night's (Aug. 25) 'That Metal Show' on VH1 Classic, and provided an open account of his ousting from Queensryche, with some speculation as to why it occurred.
Now fans can pick a Queensryche, any Queensryche they like. The summer split of the longtime rock band has left singer Geoff Tate touring as the "Voice of Queensryche," and the rest of the band touring as Queensryche. Paul Rodgers and Bad Company even find the arrangement confusing.
Queensryche have been in the headlines for a good portion of the year, and not under the best circumstances. In a new interview, guitarist Michael Wilton reveals just how bad things got during the alleged physical confrontation between himself and singer Geoff Tate.
Queensryche may have been able to keep their name for touring purposes in court, but the legal matters are far from over. The biggest issue concerning the band and their former singer Geoff Tate at the moment concerns online access to websites utilizing the band's name.
