Geoff Tate

Geoff Tate

Real/full name:
Jeffrey Wayne Tate
65 (born Jan 14th, 1959)
Place of birth:
Germany (Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg)


Geoff was not actually an official member of Queensrÿche (who were then known as The Mob) when they recorded their self-titled EP in 1982. He performed with them occasionally and was asked to do the vocals on that EP. Once Myth, his band at the time, broke up, Geoff became a full-time member of The Mob, who eventually became Queensrÿche.


He stars as the narrator and killer in the 2013 found footage horror movie Reality Kills - The Burningmoore Incident.

Geoff is also a winemaker.
