Stone Out

Postby rockinrye » Wed Feb 11, 2009 3:42 am

You guys may or may not know , I am a huge Queensryche fan , but when i heard this I couldn't have been happier:

Straight from www.Queensryche.com


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

"After much consideration I will not be joing Queensryche on their 2009 American Soldier Tour. I feel now is the time too focus on other musicall endavours , including my new band Speed X , with Nick Cantanese of Black Label Society. I would like too thank all the Queensryche fans around the world for making my time in the band nothing less than amazing. You have trated me like gold and I will never forget it .It has been an honour too be a part of Queensryche family and I wish Geoff, Scott, Eddie and Whip nothing but the very best" - Mike Stone

My 2 cents . This guy and his buddy (Jason Slater ) took the Operation Mindcrime legacy and destroyed it! The whole arrangement was awfull .The whole concept of a "story telling record " was fucked up . The Mindcrime cd bounces all over the place .

The 2 studio cd's he put out with the band Tribe and OMC2 were flops in sales and never had the " instant Queensryche cult classic song on them "

Goodbye and good riddance.

O well. See ya, Mike. Whoever you are . . . Whip??! LMAO I bought Reich's four song EP waaay back when, became dumbfounded with the level of musicianship, instantly became the "biggest fan," and faithfully bought every succeeding album. Seems to me Chris DeGarmo was, essentially speaking, the Alpha and Omega of that band. I'm not sure what's been going on with them since, I don't know, was it Frontierland, Wasteland ( or something like that)?! Man, this is one band I really, really wish hadn't become so popular/successful so quickly! Scott Rockenfield is THE SHIT!!! MAN! DRUMMER! lml lml

Since Degarmo left the Reich havent been anything like they were back in the Mindcrime and Empire days. Chris should get back with his ol Seatle homeboys and lay down some fresh tracks. Last Reich album i bought was Empire so im not to familiar with this Mike Stone dude.

That is one of the silliest comments I have heard, what do you think Zakks side project is...ummmm lets see BLACK LABEL maybe. Talked to the man himself when he was here with Ozzy, and he always says, I quote "When the Old Man needs me, (Ozzy) I am there Black Label comes second" ..... so I think mate, Nick has time on his hands, and he has a side project too. :) thank you and goodnight. :)

Feels like I'm stepping into the Twilight Zone, or something! Would someone tell me what in hell Zakk has to do with Queensryche? Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far?!

Nick Catanese plays with ZW in Black Label, Nick is in this guys new band 'speed x'

Rock: My point was: Zakk puts a record out pretty quick after he finishes the last tour he does, not leaving much time off. Nick has played with him since the mid 90's. This could lead to Zakk having a bit of a break and coming back with some good music, like it used to be. Either that, or Ozzy has lined up a big tour without BLS supporting - thats what my earlier comment was referring to, not intended to be silly. Just hoping for some of the old Zakk back.

I believe that most Ryche fans overlook the fact that DeGarmo was involved in the worst album of their career, Hear In The Now Frontier.

Yeah, that was the last one that I bought. :roll: Thanks, Brian. Seems that was polished down to a lifeless, unclever lump, and printed.
