How would ALL Queen fans feel if instead of Paul,Brian and Roger teamed up with Tim Staffel.For those of you who are against Paul,would that make you feel any better.Or is it just the use of the word QUEEN that irks you.

I'm not against Paul, I think he's great. What bothers me is the use of the 'Queen' 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 agree, i think that Paul is an excellent singer, but going under the name 'Queen' (+ Paul Rodgers or whatever) isnt right, as Brian and Roger are only part of Queen.

Sorry, im feeling a bit sick a the moment, my head isnt that clear.


Roger: Can i go to lunch now?

Brian: No you can't.

Paul has nothing to do with Queen. Not even Tim. Queen is because of Freddie, Brian, Roger and John. Just a few bands could be considered almost the same, such as ACDC.

Does anybody think that Brian and Roger may be calling themselves Queen with the blessing of the other two.

Sensible answers now.What would you rather they called themselves,if not Queen?

They did get on stage and played Earth in early 2000 or 2002 or sometime around then....I thought it was shite....Maybe I was expecting the vox harms to be nicer sounding but they were too 'pub-sing-a-long-ish (Yes, I did make the word up....)

hey, I'm getting the hang of this now...;)

Not sure that's the greatest example to use...

2 different bass players, 3 different drummers & 3 different different lead singers, plus I'm sure the rhythm guitarist left for a short period too.

I would feel exactly the same way as I do know (disappointed), unless of course they chose to use a more accurate name with that reunion. ;)

Am I against Paul if I don't like Brian and Roger by themselves using the Queen name? I wouldn't think so, but somehow those two things are linked by certain people... Like you just seemed to do with the initial question!


Roger Meadows Tailor wrote:

In short, yes.
Some musicians are happy to represent themselves accurately (and willing to accept a more limited commercial success with it), while others are more interested in the popular recognition for their fame and fortune's sake.

Do they have a legal right to use the Queen name? Yes, as long as John doesn't have anything against it. Do they have a moral right? Hell no! The band was four members, out of which there are two left.

Of course they have a moral right to use the name Queen! How comical! You all are brainwashed! They have only every reason to continue and be the best that they can...that is Brian May with whomever he sees fit for it is HIS group! You all need to pay attention! Every other group has done this and have been GREAT and sometimes even better than they were before! Do you all honestly have so little faith in the original four members that they will somehow become irrelevant by something new and great comming along? Wow! Unbelievable!

On the contrary, I have very much faith in the original four members. That's the four members TOGETHER, not whoever happens to be alive this week, calling themselves Queen.

You are the one who's been brainwashed if you think that Queen is Brian May's personal band, and he has the moral right to include whoever he chooses in it. Not only are you dismissing the input of the two members who aren't available today, but you've also just reduced Roger Taylor into nothing more than a hired extra in the background.

Now THAT is unbelievable for someone who supposedly has so much faith in all the members of the band. ;)

Let's think about this hard. It's called a founding member. Every group has one. It's the guy who first said, "Hey wanna form a band?" first. It's the guy who owns the name of the group. That would be Brian May. Hence why Brian May has said that if Roger Taylor were to die he would not continue on as Queen at that point. But you see that is HIS choice. He could if he wanted too.

Some founding members of groups or those whom own the groups name:

James Patrick Page: Led Zeppelin
Peter Green: Fleetwood Mac THOUGH Mick Fleetwood now owns the rights to the name.
Axl Rose: Guns N' Roses
Steven Tyler: Aerosmith
Jon Bon Jovi: Bon Jovi
Jeff Beck: The Jeff Beck Group
Tony Iommi: Black Sabbath/Heaven And Hell
Ritchi Blackmore: Rainbow
John Lennon: The Beatles
Mick Jagger: The Rolling Stones
Lars Ulrich: Metallica
Gene Simmons: KISS
