Geoff Tate has been talking with Chicago Sun Times about the ongoing Queensryche court case. The singer notes that he and his former band members are hoping to have settlements worked out soon:

"Everything's kind of been on hold while we finish up our court case and everything, which we hope we'll finish up at the end of January. We're just in the final stages of trying to work out settlements now. For me at least, the last year and a half has been quite a difficult time. I'm looking forward to it being settled and moving on."

The singer also talked about the "Operation: Mindcrime" 25th Anniversary shows that his version of Queensryche are currently touring:

"We're playing the 'Operation: Mindcrime' album in its entirety, which is pretty special. It's the 25th anniversary of the album and so we're bringing it out live ... Which is really, really fun. We have Sass Jordan, who is an exceptional singer from Canada, who will be joining us, and she's going to be singing part of 'Sister Mary' from the album."

    Geoff says,"I'm looking forward to it being settled and moving on" What he actually means : I'm looking forward to destroy the Queensryche legacy and move on with some undeserved cash
    You know what I'm looking forward to? Pringles Ridges. And Geoff Tate looks like Vince Masuka nowadays.
    I hope Eddie Michael and Scott win. Let's face it, whilst Tate was a great frontman in the 80s and 90s, he is little more than a washed up bellend these days.
    I'd rather have a soundalike like La Torre with the original backing band with the name than the original voice with a horrible backing band. The La Torre side has more of the original sound than Tate's side (since they're all basically new members and didn't make gems like Empire and Operation Mindcrime) Loved Simon Wright in AC/DC and Dio and Rudy Sarzo with Quiet Riot and Ozzy, but damn they deserve a better band though.
    I just wanna say Operation Mindcrime is an awesome album and also Sass Jordan is a great singer.
