Shock, Horror, Drama!!!!!!!!!

Apparently he said Brain May is 'ruining Queen's legacy'. I read it in a Kerrang magazine. How dare he!?

If that's true, (which I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't because I wouldn't trust magazines) then he's got some nerve! But we are all entitled to our own opinions...

Brian will never ruin Queen's legacy
Queen are better than The Darkness
So Justin stick that where the sun don't shine!

He's just stating a fact. No-one can compare the musical with masterpieces like MOTBQ.

Queen's legacy is immortal, Brian May can't do anything to ruin it. Whether or not what he is doing is helping or not is irrelevant.

Hypothetically, even if it was ruining the legacy, I think it is very out of place and gratuitous for him to say such a thing.

Nothing that they have done in the last few years has really been any good. Musical, rehashes of songs just don't add up to anything great.

I think they have lost the respect of many, many fans over the last few years.

I'm afraid he's right.

Absolutely agree. Brian is taking it too far and is becoming obsessed with the show to the point of actually shutting out his own fans (turning them away for autographs because hes busy with show stuff, biting peoples heads off for not loving it, ranting and getting easily annoyed on little issues)
Hes already let it go too far with the terrible adverts- he could get worse. Best to just stick to the dvds and performing.

His quote, if it's true, could've been taken out of context, which isn't unlikely. With that said, I do think Brian has a tendency to ignore everything in favor of the musical lately. While that won't ruin Queen's legacy, it's starting to annoy fans.

It very well may have been out of context, but if not, I think that it was a very disrespectful comment. Even if what Brian May is doing is not exactly making some fans happy, it is discourteous to throw such gratuitous words at anyone. It's like the saying, "If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all."

Justin Hawkins telling Brian May that he's ruining Queen's legacy....

...that's like Gary Glitter calling Michael Jackson a sick pervert pedophile.

The only thing being ruined is the career of 'The Darkness'. They got famous by ripping off Queen, and now they insult one of their members. It truly makes Justin Hawkins look like an idiot.
The same thing happened to Oasis when they started saying that theit biggest influence was Beatles and they started bashing Paul McCartney.

'The Darkness' is going down faster than Paris Hilton on a friday night.

he'd better think about his band and tryu to find ONE original riff for next album. Moreover, so sorry for him there will be no Darkness legacy, as no one will remember about them in 2 years time

Brian is not ruining Queen legacy. Queen legacy is immortal. He's just ruining Queen reputation.

hawkins is a dick if he thinks that! brian and roger aren't ruining Queens rep, just showing the world that they're immortal...and showing new generations good classic rock! so hawkins can shutup and until the day he betters them (which will be either never or in the distant future) he can shutup and keep his opinions to himself!
thats my 2cents anyway!
