Queen will live on as long as Brian, Roger and John (even in retirement) continue the legacy!

As to the original question, I certainly would be up for an album of new stuff.

I wouldn't even limit it to only Brian and Roger, if John didn't want to do it. Get Spike Edney's awesome piano in there too! He appeared on the "A Kind Of Magic" album, not to mention that various other artists worked Queen songs during the Freddie Mercury era, so why stop now? Artists guest on other people's album all the time.

I was impressed that The Cosmos Rocks was solely Brian, Roger and Paul, and B&R have proven that they can be one-man bands, so they don't actually *need* additional musicians if they started an album.

If they did, say, ten new songs and divided the singing duties between them, maybe have a duet or two, or songs like "Let Me Live" or "No One But You,"  where they alternate vocals, yeah, it could be quite good.

The real issue, as with The Cosmos Rocks, is people's expectations. There is no denying that anything listed as "Queen" that doesn't include Freddie and/or John will be subject to backlash by "fans". I'm still amused by the reaction to TCR, where based on some people's comments, you'd think Brian, Roger and Paul drove to their house and ran over their dog. Repeatedly. 

The fans that are open enough to the idea of Queen without F&J will have to know that this will not be classic Queen, obviously, and should expect a sound closer to the solo albums.

They should do a spoken word concept album. Roger is particualrly good at cheeky Cockney accents and Brian does a good Southern Dandy. A science fiction theme would therefore be most appropriate.

If it was only BM and RT, I would more than welcome a new Queen album.  If it's another Queen +, forget it.  I would rather they just brought out a greatest hits or something :)

Why bother? Unless a whole heap of unreleased tracks with Mercury on them are discovered, why bother!

An album with Bowie would probably cause my head to explode out of sheer awesomeness.

Because they are musicians, it's what they do....

That mentality is like asking why Manchester United still bothered to play football after the Munich air crash....

Most Queen fans are not interested in a Queen album with no Freddie Mercury singing on it!

If Brian May and Roger Taylor have some great new songs to offer that would be part of a new Queen album in case the original band would still exist - why not ? 

As a "Full-Queen" is no longer available a "Half-Queen" is better than nothing. Take those six or seven songs of "Cosmos Rocks" with little or no input from Paul Rodgers and you have half of the songs that could have been part of a real recent Queen album.

Brian and Roger should record an album with Taylor Hawkins and Dave Grohl..
...and what the hell, let Jack Black take the lead vocals!

Seeing as he seems to get better and better with each passing day, Brian's guitar on... um... ANYTHING new would work for me.

Great Idea!  We'll call it '40 (the sequel to '39)

Brian should not sing on a new album, because his voice is not strong enough. Roger is the one with the distinctive and quality  voice, he could do a better job.

But really they need to get someone in who can not only sing, but also write music that isn't generic blues bollocks like Paul Rodgers is so fond of.

I think that there should be many more Queen + studio l.p.s of new songs PLUS cover versions from other artists AND re-recordings of old Queen songs...multiple versions!!!!    It's SOOO much fun!!!   It's not like a religion or something you know?

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Speak for yourself!

I've enjoyed all the Queen+ and post-Freddie projects of newer material and some of the Queen+ releases which were re-recordings. 

If you don't, that's fine, but don't assume you speak for a majority. Of the million of fans out there, all of us here represent a mere fraction and one that's by no means entirely reflective of the world at large.
