I would just like to balance things out a little because it seems to me the anti Q+PR crew do not reflect the opinion of the 10,000's of people I saw at the shows I was at and my own personnal opinions!!

THANKS Paul for joining up with Brian & Roger to give us 2 amazing tours and a grossly under rated but excellent Album. btw Small is one of my favourite Queen Songs Ever!!!  I saw a few gigs and the whole band and show blew me away. My first Queen show was 31 years ago so I'm not a fan who never saw Freddie but I am a fan who accepts that he is sadly departed. I can fully understand why you were an influence to Mr Mercury you are a unique and superb performer.

I hope to see you perform again with Queen but in the mean time good luck with Bad Company and if you tour the UK I will be there being a late introductee to your music pre Q+PR.

As for Queen I'm looking forward to Rogers new solo album and maybe a solo tour, I really hope despite their age/wealth and some of the tits who post on here they continue to provide me with the soundtrack of my life well into my old age!!

Thank You Guys!!!

funny but I have aways considered Brian & Roger to be Queen and if they wanted to call themselves Megaqueengods thats cool by me you talentless berk if they say its Queen its f ucking Queen remember they have devoted a lifetime to this!!!  

Btw please read the post and put your brain into gear before replying lol TIT lol I think you have reinforced the argument rather than detracted from it like you intended.

Please understand as distressing as it may be Freddie died in 1991 an John retired in 1997 so Queen is Brian & Roger OK Respect..............................

I couldn't have said it any better than the originator of the post did.

THANK YOU PAUL! GOD BLESS YA!!!

Because of you Paul, I got to see Brian (my hero on guitar) & Roger live. It was a joy and pleasure to hear your interpretations of Queens' back catalog.

Thanks Paul!

I'm confident that as time goes on the integrity of the collaboration between you and Bri and Rog will shine brighter with each American Idol wannabee they try and work with.

The two Q+PR gigs I saw were honestly two of the best I have even seen.
You won't soon be forgotten in my mind.
You epitomize the highest standard in rock music excellence.
I really do hope to see you on stage with Bri and Rog sometime again in the future.

Thanks again!

L-R-TIGER1994 why do you want to flame a post that you clearly have no interest in? This is for those who appreciated what PR has done and obviously have the complete opposite opinion to you. Does it frustrate you? We could argue all day about the validity of the Queen name but it isn't ours to argue about as far as I am concerned anything involving Brian & Roger IS QUEEN and Paul has made a very valid contribution to the Queen legacy as far as I'm concerned.

Its sad that you feel the need to vandalise but a sign of your clear inadequacy

Well said Rich Tea, I agree with everything you initially said.
A great singer and a welcome addition to what is now known as Queen.
It's funny because this little adventure has lasted longer than most new groups do in their lifetime......not just now but throughout the last few decades.



Good luck Paul hope you work with BM and RT again in the future.

Indeed, well done Paul Rodgers - it takes a brave man to step into Queen and face the criticism and inevitable comparison with Freddie Mercury

The questions we have to ask is:
Would you rather it hadn't happened?
Which singer would have done it better?

You can't place all the blame, or give all the credit to Paul for the Cosmos Rocks album.
I think, in retrospect, a little more work on the lyrics and production would have made it a worthy addition to the Queen catalogue but time passes and who knows what Queen may have produced had Freddie still been around to be involved

I, for one, am sad to see this project come to an end and look forward to another collaboration

I agree, Rich Tea. I am also one of the many thousands who could not believe their luck when QPR went on tour in 2005. Who would have expected that almost 20 years after the Magic tour? I am sad that it ended but it was more than I ever expected before December 2004 when Roger announced the tour on TV.

It was a great time and I enjoyed the Paul Rodgers songs, too.


I do not want any google ads here.

I went to 2 Q+PR gigs, I thought they were doing great.

The first time I went with no expectations, just to see Brain and Roger, but they rocked.

Let's face it Freddie was the best, but he is not among us any more, let the people that like the Q+PR thing be happy with it and the others do not have to go.

So here goes:

Thank you, merci, danke, bedankt Paul.

And please do 1 more tour with Brian and Roger.

thank you paul for giving us fans the chance to see brian and roger live, even without freddie and john they are still pure magic! thank you for having such strong personality when a lot of people saw you as replacement of freddie but i never saw you like that, no one can replace irreplacable. i saw you as guest vocalist to a lot of queen songs ("+" in Q+PR name indicates that) and you've preformed them with passion and very uniquely in your own style. it was celebration of great music by queen, free and bad company and those bands made some of the best songs ever! saw QPR live 3 times and i was blown away every single time. thank  you paul!

Many QZ-members are young people. For us these tours were fantastic. To see Brian and Roger together live was for me a dream come true. I'm glad they chose Paul Rodgers. I didn't really know his work but I knew he has a great voice. I saw the 2 Antwerp shows, 1 in 2005 and 1 in 2008. I enjoyed both very much.
