QUEENSRŸCHE frontman Geoff Tate has issued the following statement via the group's official web site at www.queensryche.com:"As I said in my Billboard.com interview, Chris [DeGarmo] is not currently in QUEENSRŸCHE. I would love to work with him on a project or with QUEENSRŸCHE in the future and only time will ever tell that. As far as Chris not coming to the record release party for my new record...He has been invited. Either way there are other guests coming to perform in the jam and we will play a few new tunes we have been working on for the new QUEENSRŸCHE album (Be sure to bring your recording devices) ***hehehehe. Alan White from YES will be playing drums for the jam. I will leave the rest of the surprises as surprises...if some people still want to have fun! As for this being a QUEENSRŸCHE event, this is a QUEENSRŸCHE FAN CLUB event, as was advertised. Michael [Wilton] and I ARE still members of QUEENSRŸCHE."
