I’m forgoing the usual headline I file this stuff under so everyone can read exactly what this is about from the start.
At a Taterÿche performance in Illinois on May 17, Geoff Tate snatches a fan’s phone from their hands, faces the drummer (whoever that is this week), and tosses it behind him into the crowd. What a fat piece of shit.
When I saw Toddrÿche, Todd grabbed phones from a couple fans, but only to take video of the band and return it to their proper owners.
I can understand Geoff doesn’t want people taking video of his blown out voice only two songs into the set, but get it together. Why couldn’t have Tim Lambesis put a hit out on this pudgy, washed-up, out-of-touch douchefuck?
If you don’t want people taking photos or videos, then enforce the Danzig rule and have everyone seen holding a phone out of their pocket kicked out.
It amazes me that some people still support this man. He has no respect for his fans. Over a year ago, he told the crowd at Rocklahoma that they sucked, he released Frequency Unknown, and is now pulling diva stunts like this. I hope their bus rolls over and Tate gets Cliff Burton’d.
The incident can be seen 10:20 into the video below.
