Got a second power outage right after midnight. Made it to 6:00 am wrapped in blankets. There are wires down on a main road near my neighborhood and they have to wait til winds die down to fix. Able to charge my phone and warm up in my car. Power still out at 9:30. Glad it came on for Oscars. They were awesome but wish they could have done 2 more — maybe BoRhap and GaGa.

Brancelli, thanks for posting that. I agree it was too short. Would have loved BoRhap and Radio Gaga.

Just want to say again that Adam LIVE is a different animal than on recordings!

Gotta go out in the 8 degree wind chill to charge my phone again. Hope I get rescued if it doesn’t get fixed before night time again!

The Oscars were for Freddie and Queen more than it was about Q+AL, don't get me wrong. I shed a few tears knowing Freddie's and Queen's legacy is still strong, despite it not winning Best Picture. I never could have imagined all this last October.


Me neither - i never expected Maylor go that far and insulting their supposed friend with this mess of a movie. QAL was one thing and still is bloody awful but the film goes even beyond that. Just proof that May envied Freddie his whole life until now because he was the King of Queen and not him. I think May will get off watching the scene where Freddie is begging him to get back into the band again. When I saw this for the first time I was totally upset. Still am. Shame on May. He completely lost the plot



Have you not worked out yet you're in a minority with your biased unbending view. You can't give any credit to any of them because you disagree with their choices and constantly say everything is crap, seriously is it not tiring living life so constantly negative?

I personally think the movie could have been done better but it's obviously connected with a lot of people and Queen music has been back in the itunes charts, tons of new fans or people who'd not really been thinking of Queen are back interested again and getting awards whether you think they're deserved or not all helps with Queen's legacy. I think overall Freddie would be proud of the fact his legacy is still so strong 27 years after his death.



The usual "Freddie would blblabla" - sure Queen is popular in the US again but I could not care less. Queen were always among the greatest in Europe. But Maylor had the desire to bring em nback in the US but what price did they pay? Teaming up with a casting muppet and doing an insulting movie with 90% fiction and lies that Joe Public will take for real. you already have those that say "wow Live Aid was great despite him being to terrbily ill" - what a pile of bullcrap. They completely rewrote history. Not in a good way though

Yeah they were and I agree about Adam live, it's so weird how different he sounds, can't quite work out why.

Hope the power is back on for you or you've managed to get somewhere else, it sounds awful. Keep well wrapped up and take care.

Wwry and Watc. No coronet thankfully. But no chance of Freddie and John being shown.
ETA... Freddie was just shown with his cape and crown. I'm not crying, you are ;-)


Given the fact no one ever mentions John, neither Adam in the shows and Brian & Roger rarely in interviews and Rami doesn't mention him I'm getting the feeling he has maybe said he doesn't want any publicity at all. He seems to be living almost as a recluse and maybe he feels if they kept him at the forefront of everyone's mind he'd get people constantly coming up trying to talk to him when he does go out. I'ts obvious from that clip that's floating around where some fans were asking for autographs that all he really wanted was to get away, I just think he want's to live a quiet life away from it all.



He was shown when Roger used to sing DOOL...which I felt was a perfect way to do it. I don't expect John to be shown these days, or even a part of any speeches, mind you. Believe me, I respect the guy, and I respect he is private, but I do think it would be nice if he was shown in the way DOOL was done. Not meaning to sound selfish.


Yeah I loved that, was lucky enough to have them do DOOL at the show I went to. Think they had that on a few of the 2018 one's as well. I think the montage of them works great but I get why they never mention him I really think he must just want it that way especially when his sons were involved in the movie.

Sweetcaroline, please no Sun links. It's a trash tabloid who treated Freddie like shit in his last years.

Thanks, icy and rockchic. At my son’s apartment because power might not get fixed until Wednesday. Spent yesterday watching a tree company removing pretty big trees off of two houses across the street. They were out in that bitter cold for over 5 hours. They gave me an estimate for removing a tree in my side yard that has grown way too big. If the wind had been from the east instead of the west, it probably would have come down.

Regarding why Adam sounds different (and I think better) live than on recordings, I just found this article on auto-tuning from last year:

Really??? Worst thing I have seen for ages. This annyoing voice has become even more annoying. They completely erased John from their history. Like Eddie Van Halen did when they had a row with their bass player and removed him online from the album covers. Be prepared to get "the Miracle" with 3 heads only. Maylor are completely shameful. I really hate them nowadays


The Van Halen Bass player is Micheal Anthony, you obviously didn't know, if you had you would have named him.

Yes they showed a picture of Freddie. . . They were playing the Oscars. The film is about Freddie, not John. They were playing to a Hollywood elite audience, do you think a picture of John Deacon would mean anything to most of those people.

I really wish I was as much of a dumb ass thick twat as you because then I might have a chance of understanding where your stupid comments actually cone from.

You could do us all favour and fuck off, but I'm sure you'll stick around just to give us even more proof of you unbridled stupidity while thinking you're achieving something.

Sorry, icy, you don’t like tweets but I gotta do this:

“drumfanatik316
I had never seen or heard Adam perform with Queen before until now. All I can say is WOW!!! Amazing voice! Not many can hit notes like that with that much power and sustain!!! Great performance!!!”

How many more are out there who haven’t seen or heard?
