As far as I am concerned nobody can replace him and its highly unlikely that Brian and Roger would listen to a poll anyway

So if no one can replace him and it's highly unlikely Brian and Roger would listen to a poll anyway, why even bother taking the poll?

Are you asking me what I think or are you asking why the poll is going on?

Wouldn't mind seeing McCartney take his place. That could sound nice.


Any way the wind blows...

The only person that comes close in singing is George Michael, cant stand Robbie Williams, even though he says he takes inspiration from Freddie, RObbie has Zero Charisma and has too much of a massive ego

I agree no one can replace Freddie, George Michael's voice is not what it used to be he cant sing high notes anymore check his last live shows, in an interview George said he does not have the vocal range of Freddie and they had to change Somebody to love so he could sing it (George's very own words during an interview with Chris Evens)

George has always sang whispering ballads beautifully may I add, Lambert's voice reminds me of a cross between Robert Plant and Axl Rose screechy high notes, but he looks too young for Bri + Roger and farrrrr too camp he looks like a tranny in his vids lol

Well Robbie William's is at number one, Queen were going to do some live stuff with him about ten years ago, but it fell through. Which was a good thing.

Goerge Micheal sang really well at the Freddie Tribute, but what seems to have passed most people by is what he sang, you cant imagine him singing anything rockier or heavier than the songs he performed on that day.

No one else on that list is worthy of a mention. Remember if anyone is going to front Queen they will have to have a wide and usable vocal range, have a naturally powerful voice, not look out of place on a big stage, and be used, ideally, to big audiences.

Paul Rodgers is history, any number of singers that have got up and sung one or two songs with them at different events through the years have either not been asked or haven't wanted to do more. I don't see their being a huge choice of singers who could do the job. Gary Cherone, Jeff Scott Soto and then who, you can forget the Freddie clones, they've always said that's not what they want. Brian May and Roger Taylor must think Adam Lambert is worth working with again.

But Queen fronted by anyone on that list, Jack White for Fu$& sake?
Would not be worth thinking about.
