Well Bob, Apart from the fact he has got a lot of his info wrong regarding Queen "John Taylor, 2011 Q+AL gigs(gigs? did I miss some!!) A New Queen Album With Freddie" I found the article (all 10 bands) interesting & but very debatable.
On a personal note, I would Rather the Bands, go out in some form or other to give the die hard fans a treat. rather than just do Nothing. If the bands are not up to scratch, or if they are just milking the Cash Cow, it does not really matter. If you think that a band will be "crap" without any given member of the original band. Don't go to the gig, Don't buy the record, easy as that.
I mean with Queen, I have never gone to a Queen "related" gig, that Freddie was not present at, from the 1988 Cross tour, right up until the recent Q+AL gigs expecting them to sound like Queen+Freddie.
So no point, buying, say the 2008 Cosmos Rocks & Then complaining about it afterward, "Oh, it's not like Queen!!" No it's not Like Queen, It's Like "Queen-minus Freddie & John+ Paul Rodgers"
Joyful the sound
