It doesn't sound as a statement. More like thoughts aloud.

It's from before Xmas, on the Jools Holland show (UK), when Queen productions were parading Rog & Brian all over the place to promote Absolute Greatest (cash in).

Brian and Roger can do it.  It's purely a mental barrier.  I would not blame them for being backwards in coming forwards after working with Freddie for 20 years, and then having the standard he set hanging over their heads.

They don't have to be in competition or comparison with their past though.  They could do a tour that would be really interesting.  Maybe it's the idea of playing smaller crowds that is turning them off?

I dunno.  They'd have my money in a flash if they decided to just tour without a lead singer.  Hell I'd even buy the seats on either side of me.

Exactly, they should just go out together and play smaller crowds. Paul was a great addition to the band in the last couple of years - but if they can't find a way to continue working with him, then let them do it themselves. The most magical moments from the 2005 and 2008 tours IMO were Brian and Roger playing together: Kind Of Magic, '39, I'm In Love With My Car, Born To Love You. Those were also the moments that they really looked like they were having a great time.

Don't forget "Under Pressure". When they performed it without Paul it was always a high.

By the way, I don't think Roger says "if we can find someone". I think he says "if we can find something interesting". There's a difference.

If they can get to do a Queen+Michael Jackson tour, then it means they can get Freddie back instead ;)

I still hope that one day Roger and Brian decide themselves singing the songs on the tour. They would consider it.

I guess John accepted back to the band if they stop to put any one to sing. XD

as much as I want Brian and Roger touring together and sharing vocal duties for smaller audiences (wich would be awesome), I´d give up everything for seeing John joining them just for one farewell gig ... if that gig was later released on DVD/BR, of course :D !

What ought to happen is that Queen is dis-banded at the earleist possible opportunity and that Brian and Roger then resurrect their own solo careers.

End the nonsense now.
