Geoff Tate on Queensryche Case: 'I Hope We Can Part Ways on Good Terms'
As Queensryche lawsuit is steadily reaching closure, singer Geoff Tate expressed hope for the case to be over as soon as possible, even sharing a desire to part ways with his former bandmates on good terms.

"I can't really talk about the court case anymore, 'cause it's kind of coming down to the end of it now," Tate told 94.3 Loudwire KMAX (via Blabbermouth). "But whatever the outcome of it is, I just hope that it's settled, for everyone, in a good way and everyone's happy and we can all part ways on good terms, and move on. And there's a lot of more music to come out, and I'm looking forward to that."

Following a series of public jabs and even onstage spitting on Geoff's behalf, the latest statement seems like quite a massive turn. Tate previously issued a statement regarding the case, saying, "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."

During a separate Metal Wani chat, the vocalist discussed studio work and future expectations. "Music is a very intimidate journey, an intimidate experience," he explained. "We can't expect everyone to feel the same way about it. Honestly it's something I don't worry about. For me it's an artistic achievement every time I complete a record and release it.

"For me, that's why I do it," Tate continued. "I don't release an album to please my ego. I release a record because I feel strongly about making music. It's a wonderful thing what you do connects with people, in a way that they find inspiring and for me that's enough. That's what I work for is to please myself first, make myself feel the level of completeness. And that's pretty much my direction."
