In a new interview with the San Antonio Metal Music Examiner, transcribed by Blabbermouth, Geoff Tate says despite what a court agreement says, he won that Queensrÿche lawsuit.
“I’m very happy,” says Tate.
“I’m extremely financially happy right now. [Laughs] They had to pay me, which is what they should have done all along; that’s exactly what the whole court case was about. So they finally agreed to pay me for my share of the name and the business. So here I am. I’m continuing on doing what I do and they can continue doing what they do, and we’ll all be happier.
“A lot of people are saying now that the other guys ‘won’ the name. Well, they didn’t win it. We never went to court. It was all an agreement on a settlement out of court. It was a financial arrangement. So it wasn’t like a ‘win-lose’ thing. In my opinion, I think I won. [Laughs]”
This man is gross. And despicable. And he treats his fans like lesser humans.
