I just read the Q mag feature. Nothing new. But when asked about TCR Roger can't seem to admit that it was a fuckin awful mistake.

Calling Cosmos Rocks a mistake... you're probably one of those fans who feel that Brian, Roger and John should've retired after Freddie died? TCR is a great classic rock album, only let down by the artistname - therefore not getting a proper chance to succeed.

Why should he admit it was a mistake when clearly he must have thought it wasnt since he played and sang on it?

You can always make decisions that you later regret. I've never heard TCR but I don't think they should've retired (unless they wanted to). I do disagree with the decision of using the Queen name without half of the band, though.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Well I don't think Island are going to bother to do a re-issue of it.

"The Cosmos Rocks" was rightfully Queen's SIXTEENTH studio l.p. and one of the their best...just thought I would point that out and make it clear.

I don't know if there are people who've never heard TCR, but at least one person. And there's nothing wrong with that.

Me personally, I couldnt give a flying feck if they re-issued it. I have it to begin with. I also happen think it was a fine album. When I bought it, I wasnt expecting to hear the Queen of old, so I wasnt disappointed

I thought it was a really good album too

And in any case.I know this is an old argument but why cant they use Queen as a name.Plenty other bands have done that.Take for example Yes.They had two bands out at one time.With the other band having the most original members in it.

but in your case i'll be glad to

No objective person could say TCR is a "great" album. It's distinctly average.  ANATO, ADATR, NOTW and Queen 2 are great albums. Sgt Pepper, Back in Black, Rumors, Eliminator, Bridge Over Troubled Waters  are great albums. TCR is not a great album. People who like TCR tend to over-compensate in their praise to balance out thiose who hate the album and/or Queen+ concept. I dont hate it, nor do I object to Queen+. But TCR is mostly bland and unoriginal.
