How much would Freddie have involved himself creatively in the final version of The Cross version with his vocals?

Versions with him and Roger are both good, but both very different. Would Freddie have just sung it differently cos he in general sang in a different way or is this how Roger wanted the song to sound, but didn't think he personally could do it justice himself (thus bringing Freddie in to sing it)???

Not sure if I was clear.

I'd like to know if Freddie had much input in how this song should be sung (only his parts).???

Roger singing it and Freddie singing it are like two different songs. Was the way Freddie singing it the way Roger would have intended it to sound, thus getting a stronger singer like Freddie involved?

My favourite Queen song is the MIH album version, but I love listening to the Cross (w/Freddie) version too. I'd love to know if Freddie had much input in how it should sound or if he just came in and was told "sing it like this" by Roger.

(He he... Just like Queen + Paul Rogers in a way, it really is like a Queen collaboration a la Queen + The Cross, if 2 members can still make Queen lol... brings up a lot of other possibilities too... like Guide Me Home being Queen + Monsterat C, Man From Manhattan Queen + EH etc etc etc etc lol).

Very stoned BTW so please ignore last part... more interested in Heaven For Everyone questions.

I agree with you (except where you're wrong, obviously)
