Just for the sake of argument, lets say Freddie lived another 10 -15 yrs... would Queen still have been together, or do they split? My belief is that they would have went their seperate ways in another 5 yrs. They were consistently doing their own projects, and my belief is that they would have split if Freddie had lived. Thoughts?

If Freddie were still alive, he and Roger Taylor would have left Queen to form a new version of Led Zeppelin with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones.

Yes. However, in terms of making original music, Queen have been treading water since around 1981, so I wouldn't think any further albums would be any better than Roger or Brian's post-Fred solo efforts or The Cosmos Rocks. Queen's longevity has always been an anomaly in rock: very few bands stick together for as long as they did, and even fewer are making anything still worth listening to.

Freddie would have sung a duet with Pink.

Don't stop (this party's getting started).

Hi, I strongly believe Queen would have been together, but releasing a studio album each three or four years, no less. I just think the same about touring. However, In my opinion there is no doubt that Freddie would have developed his solo career. In the end...who knows.....


After a long time, collecting again!

of course they would stay together AS QUEEN but they probably would not release albums every year, maybe every 2-3 years... and they would develop even more their solo career's too.... ah what a shame Freddie is not with us anymore...

If they were still together, Im sure Freddie would of been quoted at some point saying.. "People Like Paul Rodgers fucking shit me my dear".....

Brian would not of put on weight....

Rodger would look fit.....

John would have hair and still play bass....

Freddie would've adopted kids and slowed right down.  Maybe gone into producing.

Would Freddie have gotten bald like John, or fat and ugly like Roger?

If Freddie did live that much longer, and there was never a thought of AIDS, then the Miracle, Innuendo, and Made In Heaven would probably be drastically different.

Maybe the Miracle would have sounded more like Ilse de Lange's Miracle
