Hello Queen Zoners,

I have been watching the new tour on You Tube, and at various points in different songs, he does not sing (one vision being one), he does not seem to have much energy on the stage, what's wrong with him?

As we all seen at the Mandela concert he cocked up One vision, and got the words wrong for the show must go on, I don't mind him singing with Queen, but why can't he get the words right?

Well what do you think?

Paul Rodgers is considered by many as one of the greatest rock n roll singers ever. What amazes me is that he delivers power, precision and range in his late fifities.

He is a fantastic singer that will certainly learn all the words.

Paul is a singer not a showman. His voice his fine, but he doesnt float my boat . I think there's no excuse for forgetting the words though, especially as alot of the tracks played were the same as the 2005 tour. If he's got alzeimers,he should bow out gracefully.

....maybe, but fair.He's making alot of money from the Queen brand name, he has to live up to it.Nothing against him as a person, he seems a lovely guy, but he needs to put in more to his craft.

Don't be too hard on yourself. At least you didn't die of AIDS.

Freddie freaks, stay away, I'm only joking :).

They aren´t like us that we know every word and every "yeah", "Uh", "mmmm" or "c´mon" in every record... is obvius that they need to learn the lyrics again, and even read it... an its fine.

Hoy many times do you think that Roger has listened to I was born?... me?... 5.000 times... but him?

Queen rocks!

ah... and about this topic: Paul is a great singer... and the cosmos rocks is a great proof.

He can sing ballads, blues, rock, hard rock, rock n roll... even there is a few falsettos and very high notes out there in some songs...

Simply amazing.

Why don't people get off Paul's case, he's a rock legend in his own right. Freddie fucked up lyrics too check out It's a hard life on Rock In Rio and he wrote the damn thing!

pro or not...

everybody goes lyric blank...even Freddie did, as some, like me, have taken notice.

that is why it is called LIVE !...CAUGHT IN THE ACT !!!...there is no take 2-3-4-5-6-7-...

all singers go every now and then: OOPS ?!?...i fucked up !

i did blank...euh ???

too many times to say...héhéhé...

this debate is just small piggy poop.

It was Freddie that mucked up in the Live Aid gig on Hammer To Fall.

Like he said "If you're gonna fuck it up,you might as well do it in front of millions"
