But they were glam... and campy.

I don't think there is anything wrong with that. They weren't superficial (as "glam" may suggest), but Freddie loved his sparkles.

Heh... well, at least I know I'm not alone. Sometimes I even feel like an older sort of Queen fan, now...!

Just wish they'd stop mentioning the bloody Darkness, though. To say Justin Hawkins' wail fills me with a murderous rage would be an understatement...

Besides the fact that this article completely describes me, it's odd that they're just realizing now that teens like their parents music.

In my opinion, which you can disregard if you want, classic rock trumps the music from today any day.


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

I never realized some of the things they brought up in that article. I'm young too, at 18 years of age, and I'm listening to Queen too :P

It's a very good point.

Modern music has its good points, but I'd reckon that most of my favourite albums were released before I was born, and at the very least before I was 10.

Says a lot for the business now, although to be fair there's always been awful music out there, I mean-in the early 60s, there wasn't much outside the Beatles really, and for every Led Zeppelin there was a Slade, so just because the best stuff's survived, doesn't mean it was all heavy rock and genius tunes.

For my money, when they look back on recent years and listen to Eminem, George Michael and Oasis, they'll still think that great music could exist.

Really, the last scene that even meant anything to me musically was the early 90's - mid 90's Britpop scene (everything from Inspiral Carpets, The charlatans, and Oasis etc.).

The only new groups that I even think have some music credibilty today are The Strokes, and a few others.

And you guys needed an article to tell you that?! I'm only 15 myself and I've been pretty much obsessed with Queen from the age of about 2...
