1 Stay together as a four piece group with no changes. Must be difficult.
2 Queen II. Changed my view on pop / rock music forever.
3 Make the 'These Are The Days Of Our Lives' video.  
4 Live Aid. Makes me proud to be a Queen fan.
5 Fire Greg Brooks (thanks in advance!)

Queen II
SHA
ANATO
ADATR
NOTW

I can't think of any other band that produced five really epic albums in a row like this.

"5 Fire Greg Brooks (thanks in advance!)" LOL

1.Live Aid
2.Album "The Miracle"(their best)
3.Inexhaustibility of  innovatory ideas all the time.
4 and 5.Freddie's talent.

The worst things : taking P.Rogers singin Queen originals and using the name Queen after 1991.

Meet.
Form a band.
Release albums.
Release videos.
Sat on their laurels for the last 20 years without working.

Hey; don't knock it. It sounds like my ideal lifestyle.

Slightly off-topic.
I've only recently come to realize that U2 has been around for about 30 years, with the original line-up at that too. The big difference is, they've been crap for way more than half of the time. Not my opinion, just a fact. I happen to kinda like U2 for all its shittiness. They're boring, but they've definitely got their own sound. But regardless of it, U2 is one band that makes this staying-together kind of thing less valuable. Am I making any sense? No? Good.

1) Disband Smile and start afreash.
2) Create their own rock sound, no synth, etc.
3) Stay apolitical and retain their sense of humour.
4) Borhap, they may not have got that big otherwise.
5) Brian and his old man decide to recycle the old fireplace.

wow, some positve comments in this thread, I'm not used too seeing that on Queenzone.
some things that's obvious.
The first 6 or 8 queen albums,  especially A night at the opera (bo rhap) was the most Important album they did.
Live Aid was the most Important performance, and put them back on the map.
Innuendo, very Important for queens legacy. Proving that they had longevity. "the show must go on.

Say what you will about the song, but Deacy is a total DANCE MACHINE in that video.  You can tell he's struggling not to upstage Freddie, but just look at the way he snaps his fingers in that.  He could've gone solo in 82, no doubt about it.

Impossible, so in no particular order and subject to change at whim...


1. Decide to do Live Aid thereby reinvigorating both their enthusiasm and their career.
2. Record Innuendo even though Freddie was so ill - fitting epitaph for the band (I consider it their last real studio album).
3. Release Bohemian Rhapsody as a single.
4. Do the Milton Keynes concert.
[5. Have John Deacon *not* mouth the words to Play The Game in the video - used to crack me up as a child, I thought it was a play on the fact he couldn't sing, in retrospect I think I over-analysed.]
5. Do the video for I Want To Break Free.  Yeah, you heard me.  Everyone I know who isn't a huge Queen fan but you know likes them LOVES this video, it is what people in the UK remember and it shows their wonderful sense of humour.
