Well since he sells more albums that what's left of Queen, I think that's only fair. They really should have billed themselves

PAUL RODGERS + Queen

Personally I loved the 3 shows I went to, and there were many more Queen songs played that Paul Rodgers songs. It's true that Paul's voice suited some songs more than others, but what did you expect?

I much prefer QPR to no Queen at all, and I really hope they do some more shows in the future. I'm sorry to break it to you but Freddie Mercury is dead, now get over it.

This forum gets far too many posts on this topic. I don't know why we can't get in to some decent discussions about Queen, sadly interesting threads on few and far between on QZ.

Maybe because Queen ceased to exist nearly 15 years ago.... how many decent topics do you expect???

yes. and they'd ALL want to bring their own solo songs to the tour....so the better the voice, the more of their own songs you would hear.....thereby negating the point of it being Queen+ in the first place

Alert Brian and Roger immediately before they do something rash, such as going out on a couple of international tours with him!  Whew!  Crisis averted!

He's not the wrong singer - his head is just in the wrong place most of the time.  It only really worked when he was giving it 150%.  Some great moments, but most of the time he was just lame.  He sounded bored, and it made me just wish Brian would hop back on the mic.  At least he sounds like he's trying.

Paul Rodgers belting out Fat Bottomed Girls with only 50% of his capacity is still 100 times as good as Brian's version from the 1998 tour. Don't get me wrong, I love Brian and Roger - but Paul is just the better singer, even though there maybe were indeed some point of him cruise controlling.

 Paul Rodgers lacks the Power, and vocal range to emulate Freddie.
 Perhaps his 50% so called effort is a concession that even if he gave the Queen songs the full gun he  still wouldn't  nail half the songs, therefore saving his voice for his own tours!
Sorry Paul Rodgers fans you cannot hide from the truth, he tried he just aint got it.
