I was thinking about John this morning while I listened to Cosmos Rocks.

I wonder did he get a copy and have a listen.
If he did - I wonder was it better than he expected it to be? Maybe there could be a VERY slim chance if another album gets worked on he might think the material is decent enough for him to come in and play bass on.

I guess I can dream. We miss you John!

I bet he's put on his blue shorts and he's stomping his foot like the old days.

I love Straight Shooter.

Gay ones aren't bad either.

Of course he would have, at least one would think he has. He can't be void of curiosity about his life's enterprise.

He probably listened to it because Brian said in an interview that he and Roger sent a copy to him. Anyway, I believe his silence is forever...unfortunately.

Is there any chance of John`s returning? Are you sure he has left them forever? What about the fans` writing a letter to him asking to come back? That maybe naive but still...

Roger said on a recent interview (may have been BBC 4's Front Row) that John had indeed been sent a copy.

John wrote such beautiful songs and if only he would contribute now! But i know he said that he wouldn`t play without Freddie. I believe it was in 1996-7. Correct me if I am wrong.

As much as I would love to see JD back in the fold I think we have to respect the fact that he prefers the quiet life these days.

In the glory days he always seemed slightly uncomfortable in the limelight so I guess he is happy living the life of a normal person. I guess he possibly secretly hopes the new stuff doesn't draw too much attention to his absence cause that might mean some dirty tablod journo trying to dig up some JD exclusive and invading his privacy?

I think the recent namecheck of John as a 'pop genius' by the BBC 'lukewarm - yes I started it' review was absolutely spot-on.

Just listened tonight to Sheer Heart Attack and Misfire was a gorgeous slice of pop genius. When you add Deacy's input (aggregate) into the Queen product you have a great body of work which could stand up well in it's own right as a great LP - OK it wouldn't necessarily appeal to all Queen fans of the band in it's entirety over the years.........

The other aspect of John which is comletely and utterly overlooked is his bass genius. I have spoken to many bass players over the years and John is considered a true great in the annals of rock.......

I have to add to the fold, that John, if by some weird quirk you actually read this fold that you are enjoying your retirement! Hope you are still playing though and enjoying life...
