Wouldn't it be great, to add a "touch of Freddie" in the persona of Mika to the recordings they now have? Without someone whos approach towards music is as identical as Freddies, i think it bring an extra spark of energy and creativity to the old guys. Brian has his own sound, Roger has, and Paul has...but Mika has SO much in him now... the youth, the power, the incredible voice, the lightness, the energy...and maybe a very tiny little bit of happy gay-ness in the way the music comes out...i think it's worth a try?
What do you guys think out there?

Yeah but I think he'd feel tied down by having to compromise with others. Since he's a successful solo artist I doubt he'd want to give up the freedom. It would also lead to more Freddie comparisons which I think he's tired of. *waits for the Mika bashing*

The problem here is that Mika is too hot right now for aging old fogeys like Brian May, Roger Taylor and Paul Whatever. Too bad that Freddie is not around though, since those two could have produced some interesting stuff.

Well, guys...
I don`t think that some long-term cooperation between Mika and guys is possible. But a single or any other brief gig recorded together - why not ?

Regarding Mika : he`s absolutely all-sufficient,complete and gifted musician, undoubtedly. And when people compare him to Freddie - it`s not about their voices, falsetto, poses or song writing. These comparisons are about the similar level of their TALENTS.

(besides, isn`t Mika just so cute :))

no way in hell can anyone compare the 2, people who REALLY know what freddie was know that mika doesnt have 1/10000000000000 the talent of freddie.

Mika is pure garbage, plain and simple. Who in their right mind would want to destroy more the Queen legacy in that way. At least Paul Rodgers fronted 2 classic rock bands and has a good voice yet not anything close or related to Freddie. Whomever wants Mika really really really needs their head examined.

So you agree that Paul Rodgers has a good voice, only different to Freddie's? I knew you liked him!

I like Mika's songs but his voice can be a bit annoying when he goes Scissor Sisters' high.

For those of you who persist in comparing this Mika fellow to Freddie Mercury, please, please take the time to really listen to some of Queen's music. Put some headphones on and, listen to Bo Rhap, or, Who Wants to Live Forever, or, Stone Cold Crazy...
...or, visit youtube, and, give this a listen"

Or, hell, even these simple classics:

Though I believe Mr Mika is not without talent, and, most certainly seems to emulate Freddie, there really is no comparing the two, and, it somehow seems almost offensive to do so.


It is all random
