I don't know if I could handle Freddie dressed as Paul Stanley.

1) Curtain opens over Kirk Hammet on knee pads leaning over a couch on which someone is sitting.

2) Enter Sandman
3) Queen enter to smoke bombs during "SAD BUT TRUE" riffage... and Freddie says, WHAT THE BLOODY HELL, THEY'RE STEALING MY BIT!

4) Numerous fights onstage; ending in ensuing riot.






....honestly though... i don't know how they would tour the black album...

:P

I was actually playing it again last night. (i'm still in disbelief that it was such a dud)

I've come to the conclusion that

1) TCR was horribly rushed
2) Brian, Rog and Paul had no business PRODUCING the album (some miscues etc...in MY mind i think some of the songs dynamics and tempos could have been adjusted to suit a rhythm well)
3) I still maintain that there was a great spirit towards the project, even if there are ridiculous lyrics like "the mysteries and dragons of time will explode"

without focusing on that, there's a lot of worldly reflection and beautiful thoughts towards the album.

Looking at it that way... the only filler is Voodoo.

4)Brian and Rog held back on most QUEEN-isms and there was no bassist... the mix is just pretty dry and soundboardy.


But yes... St Anger... pretty bad.

I don't know WHY they would tour the Black Album. I would think they would have better things to do. I assume this isn't in a parallel universe where Freddie isn't, like, almost dead

The title track of St.Anger was good IMO, the rest is just plain sad, I mean, using a trash can as a snare drum?

Having said, if they toured the Black Album,

1.Enter Sandman
2.You're My Best Friend
3.Whereever I May Roam
4.Love Of My Life
5.C-lebrity
6.Sad But True
7.Battery
8.39
9.Love Of My Life(reprise)
10.Master Of Puppets
11.Keep Passing The Open Windows
12.Nothing Else Matters
13.The Unforgiven
14.Nevermore
15.We Will Rock You
16.Whiplash
17.We Are The Champions
18.Seek And Destroy
19.Funny How Love Is

No offense... but i think you missed the point. I'm PRETTTTTY sure this post was all a joke. A super fan's sarcastic interpretation of the ill considered form topic "what if Queen had toured Innuendo"

hmm.. actually it was "assuming Queen toured Innuendo"

and the poster was basically mocking the fact that the album could NOT HAVE EXISTED without the misfortune in the band's and mostly Freddie's life.

dont worry mattz, I know it was a joke, but since black album is a great album I start to imagine how the tour would be.
