I think they should record a new album but keep it unreleased.

She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

Only mediocre fans who are consuming-oriented support the release of this BM RT PR collaboration. There is a difference between culture and mass-culture but I dont expect those guys to know that. There is also difference between core art and business and I personally won't replace a French restaurant to McDonalds. The fast food generation will NEVER understand the quality of "sausages", that Freddie meant. However, even they understand that this leads to an increased level of cholestersol. I enjoy the idea of a joint album by BM RT PR only in a combination of the thought for a total flop so that they also know the money keeps rolling in all directions but this has also a price. I don't think this album will appear in the charts at all.




And eventhough the time did pass

and memories tired lied,

and we will all be turned to dust

your song shall never die!

I disagree. They should not record an album, then release it anyway.

You are the mediocre fan. You basically said Freddie was a French restaurant, and the other guys can't be more than McDonald's.

Brian May and Roger Taylor are WONDERFUL musicians. They were, to say the least, as important as Freddie. If Freddie Mercury was the only talent in Queen, or MUCH more talented than the other guys, Ibex wouldn't have been a flop. Smile, which had Brian and Roger but NO Freddie was more successful than Ibex.

I don't know how you old are, but I'm just seventeen (no pun intended), so I've never had the chance to witness Queen releasing new music. Made In Heaven was released when I was 4 or 5 years old. Rocks featured ONE new song and I was 6 or 7 years old...

Now I can finally know what it feels like to see my biggest idols releasing a new album. Now I know what it feels like to check your idol's website every week for news on the album, and getting all excited over things like "It's going to be a double album", "We've already got 8 songs", "We'll probably go on tour again to support the album"...

And then, when the album is out, I'll be here, wishing with all my heart that the album and tour will be successful enough so that they'll consider stopping by my country as well, and I'll finally see them live.

When I was becoming a Queen fan, I got upset many times thinking about the fact that I was becoming a fan of a "dead" band, and I wouldn't see new songs out, and DEFINITELY wouldn't see them on stage, just a few meters away from me.

The collaboration with Paul Rodgers is the biggest chance to change that situation - and let's face it, PR is doing a damn good job! For once Queen found someone who neither ruins their songs nor tries to sound like Freddie. Freddie was good, but Freddie "impersonators" can be just as irritating as 5ive.

Of course they should, but under another name.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I disagree. Queen was a pop-oriented singles band in the 80's. It was Freddie who said that his songs are disposable pop. Products of mass-culture, designed to be consumed. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's only you who seems to think that mass-culture is inferior to "real culture". Queen always had great tunes, even if they were extremely commercial.

As for the new album, I think these guys are great musicians. Can't wait to hear what they have to offer. It's probably not going to be a big seller, though.

Very well put. Being 22, I'm excited about a new album (I wasn't at first, I admit) and I can't wait to see what the guys come up with.

I also never imagined in all my years as a fan that I'd ever get to see them live, so when they played Toronto last year, it was dream come true. I sincerely hope they decide to tour again in support of the new album!

Its not a taboo for a musician to compose new songs.

but only thing that make me angry is the name of "QUEEN" for the band name.

evevryone knows there is not/will not be queen.

Brian may, Roger Taylor (and Paul Rodgers) is the best title for band. just like many other artists.

The first post, you said you wanted to hear from everyone. The tone of this one suggests that you only want opinions which agree with your own.

In which case, you're a cunt.

Freddie Mercury wasn't kicked out of the band, he died. He worked as much on the band as he could in his final days and he DID ask Brian, Roger and John to carry on. The last thing he asked the band was to keep working on the new album (Made In Heaven) and release it.

John Deacon never argued with Brian and Roger. He decided to retire, and gave them permission to do whatever they wanted with the band and its name. He was even invited for the 2005/2006 tour. He declined it, but he gave them green light to hire another bassist and carry on with the project.

And least but not last...

The same feeling is alive. Of course they once in a while pay tribute to Freddie, they're all into the AIDS awareness thing, which they weren't before Freddie actually got AIDS and died. But in general, it's still the very same band. You can see an interview with one of them nowadays and an interview with one of them back when Freddie was alive, and you'll see they're pretty much the same. It's not like the Guns n' Roses. There isn't one selfish member who fired all the others and spent over a decade turning the band into a commercial flop while changing the line up practically every year and promising a new album for over a decade.

well said, raf!!

i was honored to be just a few feet away from brian may and roger taylor last march. if they had not toured, i would not have gotten as close to them as i did (which will probably be the closest ill ever get) and would not have caught brians towel. its a treasured item of a fantastic, and possibly the best night of my life. i loved the energy, and we know freddies spirit is very much alive, and as a musician, i can imagine having a tragedy with the loss of a freind, a colleague and a one-of-a-kind frontman, as a career loss and a personal loss, its hard. and i know that roger and brian love to play and tour, and i dont see in any way why the hell they shouldnt.
they know it isnt queen anymore but hte energy and spirit of queen is still there. queen was not just freddie, as you said, otherwise his solo stuff wouldve been much more successful than it was.
but still, i am thrilled to know they are still working and doing what they love. i couldnt have said it better, myself.


why pay the visit when the visit is free?

Told ya - You won't be able to make a difference. You don't even know what I mean. But being 17 you still believe that sea reaches your knees only. For your information, since you asked, I'm 35, and I am from a totally different generation from your consuming one. And yes, there is a difference between culture and mass-culture but it takes several books to read. So go back to school and start learning how this is done!
