In a new interview with Greece’s “TV War”, Geoff Tate said:
“Some people, like I’ll do an interview, and they’ll ask me about politics. And after I give my opinions on it, people perhaps will find themselves in complete opposition to me, because they’re ultra-conservative. And I don’t know how they got the idea that I was ultra-conservative [laughs], ’cause I’m absolutely not. I’m a libertarian, lefty loosey person.
He further added:
I believe in socialism and social health care. And I’m for the people — I’m not for the rich people. And I don’t know how people got that idea. Maybe QUEENSRŸCHE, the name — I don’t know. Maybe they thought it was a fascist sort of thing. And it’s absolutely the other way around.”
