The worst with those shows was that Freddie wasn't there.

I'll reply to this when you'll learn to use such unimportant things like commas, full stops and other signs that help people understand what you're writing... Btw, I agree with this: bless you, Freddie!


I LOVE QUEEN!

I think it was the people who misspelt Freddie's name on their banners - "We will remember you, Freddie!"

Also, the people who misspelled Nelson Mandella's name. IE: "God bless you, Nielson."

The worst at 46664 was Oprah. Always kissing ass.

Another one that was bad at 46664 was Roger Taylor, who did nothing but stare at the chicks from The Corrs and harldy ever concentrated on playing the drums...

...but then again, can you blame him?

Not at all.

Although the old blag did a bang-up job on 'Say It's Not True'.

Maybe they were hoping for high television ratings.

From the Tribute concert I think Lisa Stansfield and Liza Minelli were the worst. As for the 46664 thing I've never even caught a minute of it... and not much of the debating on these boards has made me want to chase it down...

Yes , she was so incredibly over the top it looked like a joke. A shame because I know Freddie admired her.

To say that Liza Stansfield was bad is ridiculous...

Paul Young was by far the worst. I've never heard such a flat voice before or since... (of well known performers..)

That might be the case, but I am very happy that Minelli was there. She was Freddie's favourite actress and I'm sure he would have loved to see her on his tribute concert.

I laughed my bum off when I read the banner of a fan saying "Paul, tear Wembley down!" and then heard that feeble voice trying to do Radio Gaga. But we all have to see that most musicians then were on top of their career and thus very interesting to look at and listen to.
Personally, my point of view about "best" and "worst" artist at the Tribute varies now and then. First, I absolutely disliked Roger Daltrey. I was afraid he would kill Brian with his mic-lasso game. He also fucked up some vocals. But then, his voice fitted the song pretty good.
Always liked Zucchero's Las Palabras de Amor. George Michael was also great, we have to give him that. Not on Days of our lives though. The sentiment of the song was completely destroyed. Not because he sang badly but because he sang it too strong...

Bowie did a great job (not the prayer though, I think Roger thinks likewise), and "All the Young Dudes" was probably the best song that night.

I dind`t like Roger Daltry`s version of "I Want It All" however the opening guitar solo was great! I haven`t seen the whole concert, only few numbers so I can`t say about all the performers, but I must say this:
- George Michael`s "Somebody To Love" truly amazing
- Michael`s and Lisa`s "These Are The Days Of Our Lives" quite good technically but as someone said before totally f*cked up the atmosphere of that song - it was ment to be sort of goodbye and they did an "another crappy love song for young girls"
- "Under Pressure" by Bowie & Lennox - pathetic (Lennox`s make - up was awful), however I didi like the "rah mix" version video

I think the girl from the 46664 show who sang IWTBF was really good.
