Mike Stone Leaves QUEENSRYCHE

Source: Queensryche

Mike Stone has decided he will not be touring with Queensryche this spring. We will miss him. He is a wonderful player and has contributed to our lives musically and spiritually. We wish him the best and hope to see him succeed in everything he chooses to participate in. He adds this statement:

"After much consideration, I will not be joining Queensryche on the 2009 American Soldier Tour. I feel now is the time to focus on other musical endeavors, including my new band Speed X with Nick Catanese of Black Label Society. I would like to thank all of the Queensryche fans around the world for being nothing less than amazing to me during my time with the band. You have treated me like gold, and I will never forget it. It has been an honor to be a part of the Queensryche family, and I wish Geoff, Michael, Scott and Eddie nothing but the very best." - Mike Stone

Successful? I doubt it. But perhaps the direction he really wants to go in. I support decisions like this because any artist should be pursuing what they're most passionate about. Also, the one member of Queensryche I really didn't care about.

Probably a bad idea, because Nick will ditch Speed X in 2 seconds if there is anything to do with BLS

Don't know him.



Actually I just think that by the time QR released Promised Land he had burned out on metal. Hear In The Now Frontier would be a prime example. And he certainly didn't bring anything to the Tribe songs that he worked on. Everybody seems to think that if he rejoined the band they would suddenly write the next Mindcrime. I think if he rejoined the band they would write songs like they did on Tribe. The only bright side to him touring with QR would be that all of his old solos might actually be played correctly. But that is assuming that he would still play them the same as in the past.
