After all this Q+PR stuff dies out, do you think Brian could pull off what Santana did...recording a whole album of new material with guest artists? There are a lot of big name singers out there who I think would love to contribute vocals to a track on the album (Axl Rose, Gary Cherone, Dave Grohl, Brandon Flowers, Joe Elliot, Justin Hawkins, Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance, Ben Folds, Billy Joe Armstrong, Trent Reznor, Billy Korgan to name a few).

Do you think the album would be a success?

Listen to those Santana albums very carefully. He's just doodling. Whenever the vocals drop out, there's Carlos... fooling around again.

Don't get me wrong. Beyond Appearances is one of my all time favorite albums. I've been on board from Abraxas to Milagro, but those new albums are really annoying. I'm not fooled.

So could Brian just stop creating complex solos and start playing little blurbs in between EVERY vocal?

God, I hope not.

I would love more a conceptual album based in his love about astronomy...

Some time ago a fan ask this to him in a letter and he said that maybe someday he will do it.

Great Question.

I think Brian could go further than Santana. Not suggesting anything of a dis-credit to Santana, but Brian has shown through out time in Queens catologue, he can play many styles. This Im sure would allow him to play with a diverse range of artists as apose to Santanas commercials hits that seem to be about heart break.

So, yeah, I think if it was produced right, Brian would be good.....

It would be better if Roger played drums... but lets not get in to this Q + business.

Could Brian pull off a Santana.....

If Santana would let Brian, maybe he might.. Then again, would Brian suck of Justin Timberlake?

You can buy them on the net. Too light for my taste, but they are pretty big.

I think Brian could do something, but I think Brian's approach to doing something like that would be more diverse, and he'd push the envelope a bit further.

Absolutely. I would hope that Brian would aspire to more than playing the same riffs in between the vocal lines like Carlos did.

After all the people Brian has worked with in the past...is there a need for him to do a Santana.
He does not need IIMO.
