Geoff Tate says that he has “no interest” in ever returning to the classic Queensrÿche he was a part of for so many years.
Speaking to Greece’s “TV War” in a new interview, Tate was asked if he could envision himself one day playing with his former bandmates again. He said: “Pfft. Why? [Laughs] [I have] no interest in that. No. Not at all. [I have] absolutely no reason to. I don’t need the money. That’d be the only reason to do it. Maybe if they paid me, like, 10 million dollars or something like that. [Laughs]”
He continued: “It was a good thing for a long time, and then it went really bad. And I just don’t want that kind of negativity in my life. My life is so good, and I have such great friends and family. I travel the world and sing songs for a living. I mean, it’s lovely. I have wonderful, positive people in my life, and to go back and be in that negative land again… aargh, I just couldn’t do it. It’s not worth it.”
