* '''Chris [=DeGarmo=]:''' guitars, keyboards
* '''Eddie Jackson:''' bass
* '''Scott Rockenfield:''' drums
* '''Geoff Tate:''' vocals, keyboards where necessary, saxophone
* '''Michael Wilton:''' guitars



In June 2012, Wilton, Jackson and Rockenfield kicked Geoff Tate out of the band. Todd La Torre of the band Crimson Glory was chosen as Tate's replacement, and the previously-hired Parker Lundgren was retained on guitars. Geoff Tate continued to tour under the Queensrÿche name with past Queensrÿche member Kelly Gray. On the 28th of April 2014, a statement was released that confirmed that Tate had lost the Queensrÿche brand to Wilton, Jackson and Rockenfield, who will be carrying on as the sole version of the band while Tate was given the rights to perform ''Operation: Mindcrime'' and ''Operation: Mindcrime II'' in their entirety for unique performances.

* TakeThat: The lyrics to "Where Dreams Go To Die" on their 2013 self-titled album could be considered a ''very'' thinly veiled screw-you to Geoff Tate.

* BlackSheepHit: Their one and only Top 40 single, "Silent Lucidity", is a Music/PinkFloyd-esque orchestral ballad with no traces of the band's trademark prog-metal.

* OldShame: The band excluded the video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQeitJiBDlA "Queen Of The Reich"]] from their video compilation ''Building Empires''. To quote their commentary: "After that is when we grew our hair long...so no one would recognize us!"

* BuffySpeak: The answering machine message at the beginning of the song "Empire".



* ExecutiveMeddling: EMI America forced the band to adopt a more HairMetal image for ''Rage for Order'' due to the style's popularity at the time, but otherwise didn't interfere with the recording. The album's booklet shows publicity stills of the band wearing [[TrenchcoatBrigade trench coats]], heavy make-up, and perms despite the album itself containing experimental ProgressiveMetal.
** EMI America also meddled directly for the only time with ''The Warning'', where the band went $300,000 over budget during the recording and the label took the recordings away from them and handed them to Val Garay for final mixing. As described by Geoff Tate, Garay had "no clue what Queensrÿche was. He never listened to hard rock music and didn't take input from anyone in the band. He just mixed it according to how he thought it should sound. No one in the band could listen to that record. We all hated it."



* YouAreNotAlone: "Beside You", from ''[=Q2K=]'', is this from the point of view of a father addressing his daughter.

* BrokenBase: A pretty noticeable one developed during the two-Queensrÿches period (June 2012 - April 2014) between fans of Geoff's version of the band and the other version of the band. It's too early to tell whether the news that Tate has lost the right to perform under the Queensrÿche name will cause this to fade away, however.
