That's hilarious. I don't know anyone outside that forum who thinks McCartney is one of the world's greatest singers.

It'd be pretty funny if we'd all go over there and vote for Freddie:-)

It's a funny read. A similar topic on here would give completely the opposite reactions:-)

Queen are the biggest and best band artists 'official'
Best Singer: Freddie Mercury
Best Guitarist: Brian May for unique sound and musicianship
Best Bass: John Deacon - wished he was still playing but I guess all good things must end at some point.
Roger Taylor: Top 3 Drummer with Bonham and Phil Collins.

This is bullshit!
Who really cares nothing about PMC fans? Of course they prefer Mr. Rodgers voice and style, because is similar to McCartney. Maybe they think Queen and Freddie are too exotic and bombastic. But who cares? The rest of the world (minus America and homophobic nazis) are with Fred.
This post is in the ''serious'' discussion??? This must be in ''Ridiculous'' discussion.

fans will be fans...but any objective listener would recognize Freddie's voice is superior. McCartney never places on "Best Singers" lists though he does have a pleasant voice and was a terrific songwriter.

I fully agree about Mercury and May, but Deacon and Taylor are a bit of an exaggeration - brilliant and unique as they are.

Deacon does not compare to Geddy Lee or Chris Squire. And Taylor doesn't quite measure up to Neil Peart, Bill Bruford or Phil Collins.

And that's just within rock. There are jazz players and studio musicians who could play circles around all of them.

That said - the four men that comprised Queen were perfect for each other, and all are lacking without each other.

Mercury has better range and is technically speaking a better singer, though I like McCartney's voice just as much.

Couldn't agree more! The beautiful thing about a fantastic band (like Queen) is that the band is way better than it's individual members. This was very much the case for Queen.
That unique chemistry is so precious...and sadly - after Freddie's passing and John's retirement - that is for a big part gone...

Gee, fans can be narrow minded - mcCartney had a terrific voice, have a listen to Long Tall Sally sung in one take. His range is pretty good too, I don't know the exact technicalities of the notes but I know a lot of his songs will test many a vocalist.
Paul recorded My Brave Face while Queen were recording The Miracle, have a listen, it's probably the only time he bothered to multi layer vocals. He just never got into it.

In spite of his hit and miss ratio concerning good songs vs. really crappy twee ones, Macca's a pro. You don't always hear him get the praise he deserves among rock vocalists, and maybe that's because the Beatles were best received when they sung together - who knows. He has the goods though, whether one likes him or not. He's sort of the Michael Schumacher of rock'n'roll. Might be a douche, but he's at the top for a reason.

Saw McCartney perform last month.
Must say, he can still reach the high notes and
has a very soothing familliar voice.
And he is a great songwriter.

Now when you look at Freddie you'll instantly notice the extra power he brings...

I love the Beatles but come on. Paul sounds pretty crap sometimes, dull, strained and nasaly. Beatles were never about the quality of the singing - none of them had really great voices. I prefer Johns singing to Pauls.
