Brian doesn't seem at all phased.

Roger on the other hand is preparing dinner.

What's he having?

After having read that again...holy shit. Amazing. Quite a tounge-lashing Brian received, especially about physical appearances! Hahaha.

That boy has balls, no brain but balls.

On the other hand, good on Brian for putting it on the site. Not all famous rock stars would have the guts to do that.

No wonder stars get sick of their fans sometimes. I bet there are a lot more where that came from that he just hasn't posted.

That's incredibly rude. Typical online/email insults from a guy who would probably not say a word if he ever met Brian in person. But behind their keyboards every loser feels entitled to hurl abuse at other people. Really disgusting.

But isn't it what we'd all like to say to Brian if we weren't so polite?

Brian has been slagged on this board for his rants, but you just gotta love his reaction to this one. Stylish! Seems he has more trouble handling press criticism than fan criticism.

Not being funny but there are probably quite a few Queenfans that think along the same lines

Ugh, that was horrible! Brian was so kind to not get defensive cos I know he could've easily make that crude person look even worse. People like him should go out and get a life other than spending their time insulting hard work.

And making fun of their appearances, that's almost as bad...

I'm proud of Brian for taking the high road and not giving that person a lashing, as he's been known to do to people that disagree with him. Still, it was a harsh comment and I have to wonder how it affected him. Do you think these types of comments ever make him re-evaulate what they've been doing?

Who denied him these rights ?

Wow. I know Brian mentioned that he a letter yesterday cheered him up. I thought that whoever wrote it had their valid points (and there were some) destroyed by the vitriol and arrogance of his attack.

It's been a common battleground here over who or what Queen is or was. I agree that Queen were 4 members. They ended in 1991, regardless of what anybody thinks, and it's an emotional issue. Plant and Page could recruit the drum machine programmer from the Human League and the bassist from their local pub and call themselves Led Zeppelin. Whether that makes them Led Zeppelin is a matter that is up for debate.

However, for him to tell Brian that the people who bought albums from '73-'91 define Queen is incredibly offensive. And it's also a proven fact over history that people age. For him to even mention appearance is disgraceful.

I agree with the writer that all of these appearances as Queen and the bad choices for collaborations do dilute and damage the legacy. However, if Brian feels differently, and God knows he does, it's up to him to do what makes him happy. Brian touches a nerve with people because he's the least likely rock star in the world. He just seems like a decent guy, and I'm sure it hurt him to read such a painful attack.



You know, good times are now.

I totally agree with that letter 100 fucking per-cent. They should be ashamed, ever since they started using the name Queen as a twosome - and they look like crap! Robert Plant and Jimmy Page never used Led Zepplin as a name after they disbanded. Im sure that that letter is probably playing on Brians mind - Im glad this guy had the balls to vent his anger!

I usually keep my rude comments to myself, so even if I thought this I'd not take the time to email Brian about it. I just don't think its necessary. People always do what they want to do anyway regardless if they are rock stars or not.

Okay,so maybe the personal attacks were out of order,but as a Queen fan of over 20years and counting I can see his point.Queen as a Real band ceased to be in November 1991.Rog & John have every right to perform together but to call themselves Queen when performing alongside the likes of 5ive and others is out of order.What next? Queen & Busted? Queen & Girls Aloud? I mean its not like they need the extra cash for Christs sake!
