Geoff Tate spits, could end up swallowing

Geoff Tate should consider himself lucky.
As evidenced in a fan-filmmed video clip below, during a show in São Paulo, Brazil, he was caught spiting at his drummer Scott Rockenfield. Had he done this in Prague, he could have been detained and who knows, in jail anything goes, he might have ended up not spitting, but swallowing.

Apparently on that same day, Saturday, April 14, 2012, Geoff spat on Scott before the show begun and confronted Michael Wilton while yelling obscenities and hitting him in the face. No video proof of this event. Remember, this took place in Brazil, not England.

On June 20th, Queensrÿche members announced that they were parting ways with Tate and replacing him with Todd la Torre of Crimson Glory.

In a recent interview with RollingStone.com, Tate revealed that he filed a lawsuit against his former bandmates on June 12 in King County Superior Court in the state of Washington in order to "sort out who is what, and who owns what, and that stuff." Tate is also attempting to get a court injunction against Wilton, Jackson and Rockenfield that would prevent them from using the name Queensrÿche for their new group.

In the video below you can see Tate spitting on his drummer at about 3:58.
