Listening to Rising West boots and they do sound very good, but I also agree that this news is a bit sad for me as well.
I agree. I generally liked how they'd alternate from no real live show (just get on stage, and play) to something a bit different (Mindcrime tour) - it doesn't always work, like with Cabaret, but I appreciated their willingness to change it up.

It's kind of sad to see that a band I consider to be "top 5" material for me based solely on their older work has come to this point.
I like The Warning a lot too, it just never quite did it as much for me as the other albums

Yeah, Rising West sounded good in the bootlegs, but it seems like without DeGarmo or Tate - even if he was responsible for a good portion of the general decline - it just won't be Queensryche.

In a way, I wish they'd just call the new band Rising West or whatever else and just retire the Queensryche name.

So for anyone interested in exploring this split further, Geoff has filed a lawsuit against the other guys in an attempt to stop them from using the name.

You can check out everyone's take on Queensryche's recent history (including the Brazil thing, looks like no knife was involved in that after all) in these legal declarations.

There's some pretty crazy stuff in there- Queensryche was being Spinal Tapped for a while by being managed (and ran into the ground) by Geoff's wife, Michael Wilton and Eddie Jackson had some parts rerecorded by other musicians on Operation Mindcrime 2, and Geoff tried to make an Operation Mindcrime movie and keep the income to himself among a whole pile of other crap.

They have an all new website coming soon: http://queensrycheofficial.com/home.cfm Which means that Geoff and his wife must still have the rights to the original site which has been down for maintenance for quite a few days now.
Aces High, my #1 favorite vocal performance EVER has been TIED with the opening part on The Red And The Black! I NEVER thought that would happen! WOW!

Michael Wilton is a really cool guy and that story depresses me.
