Hmmmm... think about it from his prospective for a moment, you're in this million-selling world reknowned rock band for 20 years of your life. Then your bandmate's song (WWRY) for which he has sole royalty rights to gets his song played more often all over the world then anything you have written and even the musical which has your music in it is titled after "his" song.

Would that piss you often just a wee bit now!

So you get your song on a Jaguar commercial and even get to rerecord it...mmmm...sounds like the perfect revenge if not lucrative £ wise anyway.

And let's face the truth here...Roger made his point known about working with Britney, Pink and Beyonce in a recent interview...and that was on Brian's site...we can only guess what the outspoken drummer really says when he's out-of-sight of Mr. May.

Kriz ;o)

I'm going to have to agree with you here!

Roger has no reason to be jealous. I'm sure he's getting paid something everytime WWRY is played anywhere. And aside from that, he is the "coolest" member of Queen.

That's true although I do not know what "being cool" has to do with the subject. Mind you, Roger is the most opiniated of the group and has at many times expressed himself more vocally that as of late, leaving many Queen admirers to wonder if he has mellowed so much that he has allowed Brian to take the lead role in Queen-related matters, or at least that's how it appears to many.

Kriz ;o)

I also have to agree with that! Roger isn't my favorite Queen member, But he sure is the 'coolest'. So lets see.. Freddie was the fruity one, Roger was/is the cool one, John was/is the REALLY quiet one, And Brian was/is... Well, Brian is the curly haired guitar player! DUH! ;)

I think Roger could care less about cetain things that Brian does care about. Brian said that he welcomes any people to cover a QUeen song and has no problem with it. If i had wrote those songs, i wouldnt have let half the people who have covered them, cover them...
Like Wyclef and AOBTD.
Lauren Hill and Bohemian Rhapsody.
Pepsi Crap.
Vanilla Ice.

Id' tell them go and find someone else's song to ruin.

I think Roger prob thinks abit more like me than Brian. Abit like me in the sense that he doesnt want to be involved in everything anyone wants to do thats related to Queen. I don't think he is jealous, although bri is apparently richer than him. Though having said that with as much money as they much have, i doubt that would matter...

Christ! I'm jealous of Brian! Who the hell wouldn't be!~


Freddie: "Yes, we'll have a great big cock fly over the crowd!"

Roadies: "Yeah! Great Idea!"

Freddie: "And it will fly into a great big mouth with a moustache!"

Jealous of Brian? Maybe, maybe not. We will never know. I doubt it,though. If Roger was so consumed with jealousy and position, would he not have his own website to present his case? Why would he let Brian have the only forum?

IMHO there's no reason for Roger being jealous of Brian. Certainly not for being worth 5 Mill. GBP less than Brian. ;-)

The musical is a wonderful masterpiece, but it's Brian's "baby". That might be the reason why he's taking a back seat right now. I wished both of them would record original material again. To my mind he wants that. But then what do I know... ;-)

Well, it was just to support my point that Roger has no need to be jealous of Brian. Also, I'm not sure how much they're worth but I've always thought the numbers presented by various sources over the years were too low. I think I remember them valued at or around 60 million GBP? While Sir Paul is around 500 million and Elton John is close behind? Too much of a gap regardless of how many "good investments" the latter have made.

no reason to be jealous at all.

And be honest.

Would 'I'm in love with my car" be a good title for a rock musical?

would We will Rock You be a good song for a car commercial?

Brian and Roger have both said some mind-bogglingly stupid things not related to music in their days, but they both seem pretty on the ball when it comes to musical things. It just seems that Roger is less willing to put up with crap in order to keep Queen in the public eye.

Sometimes I think Brian is just a little TOO nice and little TOO humble. Something he just needs to say, "I appreciate the effort, but you suck."

So is Roger jealous of Brian? Possibly, but I think it's more likely his priorities are different.

In all fairness, Niek, WWRY was used in a Ford commercial. *LOL*
