As reported on QZ news page: "Paul Rodgers was recorded talking before a solo gig in the USA the other day. he talks about working in the studio with Queen the upcoming "WORLD" tour. It seams that the tracks on the new album are penned by Paul, Brian & Roger seperately, but gives a hint that they may start to write songs together at a later date. (another new album after Cosmos Rocks perhaps?)"

I will simply say that I'm now so sick and fed up with Queen and flippin Paul Rodgers, that I hope to God they RETIRE from being a working band after this studio album and tour in the hope that they might actually get on with doing some "proper" Queen stuff, whether it's 5.1'ing the remaining albums or releasing that anthology boxset we've been promised for 15 years plus!

I can just see that if they DO make another album together, then that will be another excuse for the boxset to be put back. I'll be flippin dead before I see that bugger!

I agree Pootle
Queen has run it's course and offers nothing new in it's present form. They should go now on a relative high and concentrate on the back cataloge and rework the unfinished archives to produce a proper queen album with freddie as a platform to release the box set!
afterall B & R are pensioners now themselves and i'm sure there's enough material sitting around to keep them both occupied for the next few years.
Johns retirement makes more and more sense to me these days. I just wish he'd continued to be involved in the remixing and archives (afterall it's his aswell) rather than dissapear

Read it, not bitching, making a resonable personal comment. Queen finished in 1991. QPR whilst great to see once live should have been the farewell tour IMO. Many disagree. I'm fine with that.

I'm only following the pattern set by the thread starter.

Now now, I was just being snappy with words!

But honestly, your thread title made me think something seriously shitty was going to happen. Don't make me panic like that

I would like to see the release of the GREATEST VIDEO HITS 3 and a good '70 concert like HOUSTON '77, HAMMERSMITH '79 or RAINBOW '74...

Why don't they just tour and record with Freddie Mercury already?!? That's what everyone wants, why doesn't Brian listen to the people?!?

The problem is that Brian and Roger are NOT Queen, which means any material they release won't be Queen material.

I would rather have the anthology releases with a handful of unfinished 4-man songs, than a handful of sub-par solo albums.

The prospect of yet another delay on the anthology series because of a Q+PR recording session is fucking horrible!

i don't get the f**king point in making waves on Q+PR.
first of all: lets wait and see. dont judge a book by it's cover... i myself am not pauls biggest fan but... hey, lets give him a chance...
i wonder if there was such voices if the project wouldn't have the 'Queen'-name - and'd be called ... hum ... 'the noodels' or sth.
so: what's the fuzz about ? two of our favourite musicians make lots of noise again and party on... just smile...(mean: 'be happy', not the band :-D)!

and i'm pretty sure we all WILL see GF3 and thus awful K N O W N commercial stuff, when the last former members will retire (which hopefully will be far far in the future)...
i'm glad they try again and rock the house, the cosmos or whatever.
just my two cents.

That's the whole point, isn't it?
They're choosing to carry on with the Queen name, and because of that decision they feel it isn't time to release the archive material just yet.

If they were calling themselves Noodels, it would be pretty obvious they were past the whole Queen phase, and they would be okay to release the archive material.

By themselves they aren't my solo artists, but they were a part of my favourite band with the four man line-up. There's no need to cheer something you don't like. ;)

Oh dear God, NO!
Not another one of these posts...
I'm not even bothering to make a comment on Q+PR haters anymore...
But seriously, Paul Rodgers is Chuck Norris with a British accent. One of these days, he's gonna end up killing us on a tour or something..

no Freddie, Brian, Roger and John were Queen
What we have is Queen+
The 2 are different yet sometimes the same.
There is nothing wrong with not liking the new direction.
Not liking Paul is not saying anything bad.
Jeff Scott Soto would have been better....IMO but maybe not yours.
That's Okay, I can live with that. shame many on this board can't live with anyone disagreeing with them.
