i know they are bored and want to play music and not just sit home, the reason they did this paul rodgers thing.

But they cant possibly write as good material or be as big as Queen were without freddie and its also hurting the legacy a little.

What they should have done is to tour and just have freddie on the screen for a whole concert as they are doing with bohemian rhapsody now.

That way they are still Queen and it would have probably sold out stadiums. People who never saw freddie could at least see the next best thing being the band plus freddie on the screen.

Let me guess.....

They should have picked you to sing? Better yet, the no talent ass clown from Europe?

Why couldn't they write as good material now as they did in the 70's? What's stopping them? They propably have learned a lot since the 70's. I think it's great they're still creative.

And I don't think that the purpose of this current Q+PR activity is to become the biggest band on the planet. Why can't we just let the old men have some fun and do some rocking and rolling. They're good at it. It's not hurting anybody. And talking about their legacy...

Now, THAT would be embarrasing, and would REALLY hurt their legacy as one of the greatest live acts ever.

Also, if they did that, Queenzone would be filled with topics screaming: "STOP ROBBING FREDDIE'S GRAVE, YOU GREEDY BASTARDS!!"

not to mention, wouldnt that basically just be like watching a Dvd at home? Cause we all know there are only like 5 concerts that queen have recorded that are worth watching, thats why they keep re-releasing them.

but hey you could go to sydney and watch freddie perform in Wembley.

Yay

It´s certain that you have not seen them live...!

I think Brian, Roger, Paul and the rest of the band did really well on the 2005 and the 2006 tour...! Great music, great performances!

Do you know who John Deacon was?

I'm past caring what Brian & Roger do. The negative press has already started and there'll be more to come.

well yeah, i suppose they can write good songs although it will never be the same level as original Queen songs. I just think that have such a legacy being the best and biggest band on earth, they should just let it be.

i dont think a concert with freddie on the screen would hurt their image as the best live band ever because you would still see freddie running around on the stage and all that.

People already know how good they were and now the younger people who never saw Queen live could see the next best thing. Of course it would be awesome if john was in it too.

Freddies impact on people is SO BIG that it would be enough just to see him on the screen and hear his voice loud in a stadium.

And its not like watching a dvd, its much more. Here you could see the surviving members and their reaction to playing with freddie on the screen. It would be a very emotional experience for the band and the fans.

hearing freddies voice loud in a stadium and seeing him on a big screen + the surviving members live is NOT the same thing as watching a dvd at home and its also 100 times better than having paul rodgers sing it, no offence to paul but no one can ever come close to Freddie :)

of course i know, im a VERY big Queen fan and i believe you when you say that their performances with paul have been good, im just saying it would have been even better if john was with them and they had freddie on the screen and no one else singing.

Elvis Presley's old band and back-up singers actually did this - went on tour and played live to old footage of Elvis singing. It was pathetic and the tour was a miserable failure. If Brian and Roger had done that, they might as well have called it the "we are creatively bankrupt, have nothing new to offer, and desperately want to ride the coattails of a dead man all the way to the bank" tour. If people want to watch old film of Freddie Mercury, they can do that quite easily at home.

And having looked at your MySpace page, its obvious that whichever member of your band posts here is one of those "Queen was Freddie Mercury's stage name and the other three were little better than hired session players" fans, so I don't really take you very seriously. And your band isn't very good either. It sounds like Trans-Siberian Orchestra with whiny vocals. Take some voice lessons.

im not the singer and i dont think Queen was only freddie BUT he was the major force in it, the most dominant and strongest. I dont care what you think of my band, its better than all the talentless crap out there and you could never compose a song like ours.
