On Meeting Geoff Tate of Queensrÿche and Drinking His Wine

with 3 comments

Geoff Tate’s Queensrÿche Facebook page announced today that he was doing a bottle signing for his Insania wine nearby. So I ran home, grabbed The Book, a photo I took of him at a signing in 1989 and headed up to Spec’s. Small crowd but it was cool meeting him again. He took special interest in The Book and asked how to get one. After the signing, his wife was giving out samples and I tried the red. I also bought some for myself. Good wine, pretty expensive though.

    • Hopefully I’ll end up backstage tonight to get the rest of tate’s band to sign as they’re all in the book, too. Rudy Sarzo, Bobby Blotzer and 2 guys from Tate’s pre-QR band, Myth.
