Next month (most likely the weekend of March 16th and/or 17th), I will be hosting another Skype Debate with the Jazz/Live Killers tour being the tour of debate!

After reviewing through the various Queen debates I was in (and the two Elton John ones I was in as well), I am going to go further into making this debate being the best one to date: I think the debates are getting better as time goes on, but there's always stuff that needs to be improved on: In this case, I promise that I will NOT spend 3-4 hours talking about Freddie's voice on the Japanese leg of the tour! There are many things that I've noticed on the tour (both good and bad), that need to be addressed and debated on! My friend from England (formulaonemad), is going to help out with organizations and create an outline and set-list for the debate.

The general outline of the debate is to focus on the three legs of the tour (North American, European, and Japan), then discuss Saarbrucken 1979, talk about Live Killers (with many thanks to Bob for his "Live Killers" analysis), and talk for a bit about the Jazz album.

Like the previous two debates, ask me all the questions you want about this tour! Myself and the other debaters will do our best to answer them! If you are interested in participating in the debate, or if you want to be guest on the skype call--send me a message on either my email, my facebook, on Queenzone, or on Youtube! The more participants, the better it's going to be!

The 1984 debate is on Youtube (GregsynthWizard: The Breaking Hearts Debate), and I'm going to upload the 1985-1986 debate within a day or so!

I have confirmed that the weekend of March 16th and 17th (the Friday or Saturday), are the two dates. I have to see how everybody's schedule is, but it's guaranteed to be on one of those two dates.
So far, there are TEN confirmed people who are in the actual debate itself (ready to discuss everything), and there's quite a few "guest spots" and "listeners" on Skype (who aren't in the debate, but are getting a front row seat to all the audio)!
I think this is going to be extremely fun!

I will be listening to this. I'd take part but I don't know the shows that well and my internet would cut out every 20 seconds :P

Yeah, I'll probably do that too. Maybe I'll learn some stuff.

EDIT: Ugh, my computer's being a dumbass. If the debate is going on right now, tell me how it was later
