New Queensrÿche drama details have been revealed. There is reportedly even more of rift between singer Geoff Tate and his bandmates, who are working on Rising West. Tate’s daughter Miranda hit the band’s Facebook page to offer her side of the story, since she helps handle some of his business dealings.
We couldn’t find the posts, but VH1 Classic Radio provided the tip off and indicates that she wrote, “Geoff is on the defensive and all the truth as to how hostile he has been treated will be known soon.” She also says her Tate writes songs with the help of an outside writer, since the other members don’t contribute. Drama! [Facebook]
