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.
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.
The details of the legal matter between Geoff Tate and the remaining members of Queensryche continue to spill out by the day. The latest piece of info to make headlines is the sworn declaration from past Queensryche producer Jason Slater, who questions the involvement of the band members during the recording of past releases.
Queensryche has finally pulled the trigger on the decision to continue without singer Geoff Tate, following weeks of speculation and a series of rumored and public squabbles with their longtime bandmate.
What looks like Queensryche, sounds like Queensryche but isn’t really Queensryche? Well, it’s complicated. Tonight, the rock band is scheduled to play West Valley City, Utah, but only singer Geoff Tate will be there.
