For a while, there's been on-and-off talk about a "Queen Reunion Tour" and stuff like that, but it's usually just a complete sack of crap. I've noticed that most of these reports tend to suggest "guest vocalists" filling in for Freddie on lead vocals. So, my STRICTLY HYPOTHETICAL question is this: IF Queen were to regroup for a tour - or better yet, hold another "Freddie Tribute Concert" style concert with an array of guests - who would you want to see as a guest singer and what songs would you want them to sing? I've been thinking about that for a while, and here's some thoughts I had:
Steven Tyler - "Tie Your Mother Down"
Ronnie James Dio - "I Want It All"
Elton John - "Save Me"
Brian, Roger, and Paul McCartney - "Let Me Live"
David Bowie and Justin Hawkins - "Under Pressure" (Justin would be great on Freddie's high parts)
(this one's a bit off-beat)
Josh Groban and Michael Crawford - "Who Wants To Live Forever" (with full orchestra)
Rob Halford - "Stone Cold Crazy"
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel - "These Are The Days Of Our Lives"
Roger Daltrey - "Radio Gaga"
George Michael - "Somebody To Love" (no use messing with a winning formula!)
Debbie Harry - "I Want To Break Free"
Ann Wilson - "Love Of My Life"
Robert Plant - "39" and "Seven Seas of Rhye"
Justin Hawkins - "Bohemian Rhapsody" (he won a karaoke contest by singing this, so I'd be anxious to hear him!)
Bruce Dickinson - "The Show Must Go On"
Amy Lee - "We Will Rock You"
Steve Perry - "We Are The Champions"
These are a few of my personal opinions. I realize that I've probably made a few singer-song combinations that some people will hate, and certain specific singers on here are hated by a great deal of people, but hopefully some of them will go over well. Either way, these are just my opinions. Let me know what you think and who you would like to hear singing Queen songs.
I think this calls for a little "Bohemian Rhapsody", gentlemen.
