According to Russian edition of 'Rolling Stone' it was 'Bo Rhap'. And no, they were seriously. I wonder if the guy who wrote it ever bothered himself to attend the show.

I remember a good Twilight Zone episode about someone who did that...The Misfortune Cookie.

Call me a heretic, but I prefer Radio Ga Ga and WATC sung by Paul. And maybe some more

No.... although due to less risk taking vocally than Fred (Live) I would say Paul is at less risk of tuning problems. Plus paul only sings for around 3 quarters of a gig, Personally i prefer Freds awesome power and risk taking. Also Fred was far more versitile as a vocalist....

Radio Ga Ga? A song that Paul wasn't able to learn? Have you heard and watched the Live Aid version?

We Are The Champions? Paul should sing the chorus without using 4 voices of others, and then, we could compare...

Paul is a great singer, but of course he can't beat Freddie when it comes to Queen songs.

Heretic!!! [img=/images/smiley/msn/tounge_smile.gif][/img]


I don't think so. But unless I think Rodgers is a good singer, I don't like his style. In the other hand, I love Freddie style.

I heard him do Millionaire Waltz once, he was way better than Freddie.

Better than Freddie pre-1982? No way. Better than Freddie post-1982? Hell yeah. I don't think Tie Your Mother Down has ever sounded this good in the last 25 years.

Radio Ga Ga - yes, I've heard the Live Aid version, why ? You're right that Paul forgot the lyrics too many times but still I prefer his voice in this song. Roger's version sounds the best however.

WATC - yes, you're right, it's not fair to compare it since Paul sings it with backup

I can only agree with this, even when I think they play TYMD too slow now

hummmmmm ..... "thiiis iiis a trickyyyy situaaatioooooooon ... " [img=/images/smiley/msn/wink_smile.gif][/img]

I see Pitrrek´s point, and agree in some ways. I love Freddie, we all love Freddie, Freddie was amazing, even when his voice was not at its best, only his stage presence, power and charisma made him unbeatable !

BUT .... (I´m gonna be called Heretic #2 now), when I listen to Paul singing TSMGO, for instance, the first time I heard his line "Still stays oooooon!" I thought "WOW!!", and the same with the "rich or poor ..." line in HTF ... and the same with the WATC chorus (wich sounded really awful w/o Paul bringing the high note in 2005, as Rog´s voice isn´t the same as in 1986 - and he was Freddie´s support in this song). Paul has been hitting the high notes in the WATC chorus during TCR Tour, not Jaimie, Spike or Danny ....

I totally disagree about WATC. For me it's a winner song, a fist-in-the-air "take that " song but Paul Rodgers turns it into a whining, male Mariah Carey type (why sing one note when I can sing seven) song which I loathe. For similar reasons I dislike the slow HTF version Brian introduced in 1998. One of the most powerful Queen rock songs turned into a depressive, whining loser song.

Versatility ok, but Freddie taking risks, vocally? Perhaps in the studio, when he knew that he could re-do the take, but not live.

Agree 100% :)
