I think BG would be the most suitable front man.. He has nice voice, he and freddie were good friends, freddie loved culture club. Boy george was often seen in freddie's birthday parties.. BG's And Freddie's cats got well together.. reasons enough?

I'm afraid Boy George would try to shag his drummer yet again. And this time it would be Roger. This could be too much drama!
Seriously though, his voice is great but I don't think he could handle the rockers. He'd be fine on ballads such as These are the Days... and Who Wants to Live Forever, but I can't hear him singing Stone Cold Crazy or Headlong.

Yeah, George has a more jazzy, adult contemporary voice and couldn't handle the rougher stuff very well I don't think.

Just because someone is gay it doesn't mean that they could front Queen. Is a no brainer that absolutely no one can take Freddie's spot... even George Michael being the closest to him in performance and voice quality, still wouldn't fit his shoes.

And Boy George? Pleeeease... why not Clay Aiken then.

No one is even close enough to replace Freddie. Not even hypathetically speaking.

Boy George is well over rated, in my opinion. As for replacing Freddie - no one ever could, and no one ever should!

I don't like when any bands replace any of their members. Even bands I don't like. I'd even be upset if Nsync decided to start up again and replace Justin. So, replacing Freddie would be blasphemy. I'm not very good at handling change, as you can see...

Hmm. Dunno about George ... and plus, Fred was Fred. That's that.

My favourite performances under "Queen+" would have to be the ones with Elton John, George Michael and David Bowie.

So, my guess is that it helps to be gay! LOL.

Seriously, though, I think that has to do with the circles they were in more than anything. Seal was pretty good too, and I like Liza Minella's voice, so those performances were pretty good too.

Lets face it , they can't replace Freddie with
anyone. They should just record new material with
Brian and Roger singing, simple as that. If they tour which they never will, Brian can sing lead.

Someone had suggested that Mike Patton would make a good frontman for Queen. I tend to agree, and is the only suggestion thus far that I find would be viable. All in theory, of course. ;o)

come on people... please stop making this nonsense topics. No one will ever replace Freddie:
Not even:
George Micheal
5ive
Will Young
Britney Spears
Tony Vincent
The Darkness
Boy George

And all those other lousy queen+ people who thought they were Freddie for a while...

Dream on! Fred is dead, no one will be the new Freddie! Never!
