We all know George is a brilliant Pop/ballad singer, with his character and artistic leanings i don't think there is a rocker in there somehow, whereas Freddie was indoctrinated with Rock as documentated i.e. Jimmi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Beatles,  Elvis et all, can't recall any quote about Paul Rodgers???[img=/images/smiley/msn/confused_smile.gif][/img]

This has been discussed many times making this thread like..."ROUND 7,629 of 'Should George Michael sing w/ Queen." I'm not trying to blast you though...

To answer the question, I think George is a first rate pop-vocalist, but aside from the really pop oriented material, I just don't see him pulling it off. It just has never sat as a proper fit to me.

George Michael is far too gay to sing for Queen.

If George Michael could sing Queen's songs....? No, can't imagine. It would be a nightmare for me

He's not artistic, and he is overrated, mostly because he is such a slick singer, and people tend to fall for that.

I'm not familiar with any listenable songs from when he was in Wham either.

Actually, TQ, the Wham album "Make It Big" was quite listenable.  It did have 3 top ten singles, and you can't tell me that Careless Whisper is a crappy song.  It's not.  It's gold.  Yes, it's George Michael, but he did pen quite a good song there.  In fact of the three singles, only "Everything She Wants" did not hit #1 in both the US and UK.  It hit #2 in the UK.

Shortly thereafter, both Ridgley and Michael released solo albums and we found who the talent and who the spare was.

OK I've had enough with stupid comments like this.  TCR is a great album, so I'm sorry if you are so obsessed with Freddie you can't even give it a fair chance.

Somebody To Love was a fortuitous combination and worked well.  (In comparison to Seal, Liza Minelli and Elton John, at least....)

But I'm very glad that they drew the line there.  T'was a good idea in and of itself, but extending it would've been embarrassing.
