I know this seems crazy to think and like it would ever happen in this life time. But I was thinking the other day with two members of The Beatles left and two members of Queen left (with John retired) What if Queen and The Beatles joined together? Roger and Brian could share the vocals on Queen tracks and Paul and Ringo on the Beatles tracks. Paul would play bass, Brian on guitar and Roger on drums but not sure what Ringo would do. Anyway what to you all think about this? Just a crazy thought.

Ringo could be the lead singer. Nothing wrong with that plan.

NASA would need to discover a new planet to contain Brian & Paul's egos.

Meanwhile, Ringo & Roger will do what all drummers do -- help move the equipment.

Realize that he should be playing the drums instead. For Rock & Roll, Ringo's about the best there is. Just ask Roger.

There's a great special on HBO this month, Dave Stewart interviewing Ringo Starr. Includes some great insight on how he plays the Beatles tracks. Any drummer would really enjoy it.

This is a stupid idea.

Everyone knows it should be Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

Or Julian Lennon, Paul McCartney, Dhani Harrison and Zak Starkey.

so you hate one of Queen's biggest influences?

I've rarely ever heard any obvious Beatles influence in Queen's music. More Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath (Sabbath at least in regards to Brian's playing anyway.)

Not bad..... I mean Really Not Bad… Here some of my ideas. I Think that they also might take Ritchie Blackmore, can you imagine what will happen with those two on stage(Bryan and Ritchie) , I already hear the endless solos. Jon lord is also available after retiring from Deep Purple, I really miss him and his Hammond C3. So Ritchie and Bryan on guitars, John on Keyboards, Rodger on Drums, Paul playin’ Basses, And Ringo…. Hmmmmm?... Don’t know what to do with Mr. Star... Maybe he could take percussions… Vocals… Roger and Bryan are not bad, but with Paul in the band i think it would have been a sin not to let him to take the lead vocals…. So how do you like????
I’m new one here so please try not to criticize me too rough….. Cheers….:D

I'm sure Brian could find one himself. or maybe get Patrick Moore to do it.
