John Deacon has taken a good deciscion by not taking part in the bullshit Brian and roger are doing at the moment (we will rock you with five///beyonce,britney,pink) That SHITTY musical of them and of course all re-re-remixes of old queen songs. I think they should be more careful to the legacy of queen. John is my hero for quitting.

You have to remember though, What YOU think is best for Queen may not be what QUEEN think is best for Queen.

I agree with the topic title but not for the reason given by the person who started the topic.

I will reiterate once again what I have stated so many times before.

You or I or any fan may not like what Brian May and Roger Taylor are doing at the moment under the "precious" name of Queen but like any other "business" and I say business because that is what Queen is like it or not! Any band in the music industry is a business venture ppl!

Get over your pureist ideas! It's all about the music, GET A LIFE!

Queen back in the beginnings and most certainly NOW are a business. John Deacon is out of the picture but not out of the "business" WAKE THE FU*K UP WILL YOU!

You pureists make me sick! GROW UP FINALLY WILL YOU!

Kriz :oO


Long Live Queen!!!

While I agree that old Easy does indeed deserve respect, I also accept the view that the music should continue to be promoted, especially to a generation that isn't perhaps aware of it, rather than filed and forgotten.

Bands like Led Zep are respected for their non-commercialism, but I could only name you one of their songs, and I couldn't even hum you that.

Respect will only get you so far, you've got to wing the rest.

Not everything Brian&Roger are doing is bull shit: DVD-A, GVH DVDs, Live DVDs... that's quite cool! John should take a part in that! Was John btw involved in the remix for AOBTD?

Here is why I think John Deacon deserves respect.

He was a member of a good band that had no lineup changes for their entire recorded career. This is a hard thing to do. This indicates that he like the rest of the band must have been incredibly patient and diplomatic.

Also, even though he was not the primary songwriter, he wrote some good songs including one of their biggest hits.

Finally, while he is not a flashy player like Geddy Lee or Billy Sheehan, his bass playing is solid and creative.

Look who's talking about respect! You really should be ashamed of typing "roger" instead of "Roger"!

I respect all of them and their decisions. If you don't like the remix's or whatever, don't listen to them. If you don't like the musical, don't watch it. (I personally like the musical- I thought it was great.) But I think they all desever some respect.

Apparantly you guys like that shitty musical more than a good solo album or a queen box. I think the only reason I am a queen fan is because of the past not of what Queen is representing right now. Brian, Roger and John also deserve respect for the past, but the "cash is king" approach from Roger and Brian dosn't deserve respect. There was a time that Brian said: "We don't wanne write hits, we just wanne make good music" Unfortunately nowadays his priorities changed.

Hold on, are you trying to say that everything Queen did up untill Freddies death, was for the love of the music and not for the cash. Then I would have to disagree with you. Yeah sure they wanted to make the best music they possibly could but they also wanted to make shed loads of money, and its no different now. The solo albums and tours will surely come but you have to be patient. They always did things their way and when they wanted to do it and its no different now.

That 'shitty' musical provides a sustained income over a period of time that a solo album wouldn't.

Do you know how much shampoo and clogs cost in the UK?

I'm still trying to get used the idea that clogs aren't strictly a woman's accessory...
