Well, it’s official: his voice isn’t the only thing Geoff Tate has blown.

In a recent interview, with WZZM 13, the former Queensrÿche singer stated:

“I enjoy it; I really do. I’m a road dog. I love being on the road. I love travelling. I love new cites. I love truck stops. I love them. There are a whole arena of characters and politics and great conversations with people who travel for a living. Even people that work at the truck stops are really interesting to talk to. I’m always looking for inspiration for songs, so whenever I go to a truck stop, typically there’s some kind of issue that happens that may end up in a song.”

That should explain the fist on Taterÿche’s album cover. More like Operation: Hindcrime, AMIRITE!?

What this really means is that Geoff Tate is still big enough to have a tour bus.

Let’s give it a year and see what his wheels are then.

I hope he does a 48-state run in consecutive nights as a one-man act and he rides his motorcycle from city to city.

What I would do to be at that 48th performance to see Geoff Tate’s last stand before never returning to the stage again.
