I have modified my question, I wrote "early classic track" but I meant "early classic Queen track", not classical music :)

In that case it could be fun...but still no QUEEN song is a QUEEN song without Freddie and again all this IMO!

My intention is not to bring the "there is no Queen with without Freddie" war again... I only would like to know what people think of THIS Valensia idea, comparing with "Queen+Five", "Queen+RW" , "Queen+John F", "Queen+Britney", etc.
They obviously want to use the name "Queen+somebody", so what about somebody = Valensia ? :-)

I see no use in re-recording old songs. You want to move on in your life and not re-do what you already did decades ago. I can see no musical challenge in re-recording the old catalogue with other artists.

I see your point YV, but my idea is that if they release a single with a Queen track under the name of Queen+Valensia , and people like it, maybe this could lead to the recording of new music with Valensia. To me, the guy captured the Queen spirit perfectly and certainly could inspire the guys to make the style of music we like, the good old Queen style !

I understand what you mean, Henrique, but I just think it's impossible to re-create the "Queen spirit" if you only find a like-minded musician(even if the remaining Queen members wanted to re-create this spirit). The group was a lucky coincidence and it's gone, no matter how much we may regret it. Brian and Roger are very good musicians/songwriters and they have all the options, money and means to do whatever they want but unfortunately, new songs are not high up on their priority list which is a shame. I think "Invincible Hope" is a great song because it does not aim to sound like Queen, it's a true Roger song and it's awesome.

Yes, IH is good, and has Treana on it. Since they are working with other artists lately, I think that Valensia would be an excellent choice to invite to do something.
His ideas for arrangements are incredible - on "I´m In Love With My Car", for example, I can hear an imaginary duet of Kate Bush with Freddie !
I think they CAN create a huge hit with him, and go back to the charts with new material ... influenced by someone who is influenced ... by themselves !

" but I just think it's impossible to re-create the "Queen spirit" "

I think Valensia did a pretty good job on his tribute album recreating that spirit, listen to My Fairy King...

Henrique, I would be the first to welcome a cooperation of Brian/Roger with Valensia or any other artist to create something new, I just don't think they should keep re-recording their old material.

I don't think they are capable of creating the "old Queen sound." They may do songs that sound familiar, but I think things have evolved for them so much that its impossible to re-create something that sounds classic.

Invincible Hope is a great song, although it is a bit repetitive. I think it bodes well for Brian and Roger, and I would enthusiasticly support any new material. But these attmepts to re-do old stuff is getting boring.

Hello there, the biggest Valensia on QZ (I think :-)) is here....

Well, I mailed with Valensia some time ago and he said he was hoping to get in contact with Brian & Roger... Haven't mailed to him in a long time, but I can always try & ask :-)

There has been much in the way of rumour as to the possibility of QUeen plus new lead singer. Jeff Scott Soto being mentioned. However, I tend to the view that if it going to happen ( and that's a different ball game), then Valensia is the right man for the position. Simple as that.
A good source informs me that a copy of his Tribute album has gone to Messrs May and Taylor....we can but wait and see.

Indeed, Valensia would definitely be fit for the job. He writes excellent songs, some in the Queen-tradition and some in his own style (which is great too :-)) and he isn't THAT wellknown, so it wouldn't be "Queen + Well-Known Singer"... Plus, a collaboration with Queen would finally give Valensia the appreciation he deserves - he's definitely underrated at this moment... If any of you can't find Valensia songs online - contact me, I can give you some samples... I know Valensia is ok with his music being downloaded - he even mentioned it in his Gaia 2 booklet! Of course, I also bought all of his cd's :-)

Next month will see the release of the Metal Majesty (Valensia's new band) cd - I hope it sounds like the track The Moon on Luna Luna, his mini-album from 2 years ago :-P

"he said he was hoping "

Thanks Pim for putting me out of my misery. Finally I know that Valensia is He and not She. Until now I had big doubts :-)
