who would rather see a Smile reformation? Brian, Roger & Tim Staffell recording new songs would be great and would finally lay the Queen brand to rest as an active band and would stop this "Queen +" rubbish....

I would prefer Queen+
Wouldn't they play Queen numbers if they'd perform
live? So it would be kind of a Queen+ thing in
the end.

Id prefer Smile by a million miles. All Queen fans know who they are. It would/could be a good tour.

whoever in marketing who made up the term Queen+ is an idiot, I hate that term, its like its an plus size for overweight people or something, or the beginning of a equation someone is too lazy to finish. Queen+ what???? So is Queen+ an official artist now that we as Queen fans recoginize it as so?...damn I just hate the term "Queen+" ughk!

oh yeah a smile tour would be neato

I've always liked Half Of Queen, Queen And Friends, Formerly Queen, and Queen In The 21st Century (nice take on Flash Gordon).
If Tim Staffell came back, Smile it could be!!

It would be interesting to see a reunion of Smile, but it probably wouldn't sell as well as using the name Queen. Casual fans will know who Queen is, but if they don't know the history of the band, they'll have no clue who Smile is.


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

Isn't Tim Staffell still busy with his group aMIGO? I've cruised by his website and it needs updating badly....like Roger Taylor's, which is still not functioning at all!

I think it's a terrible idea. I think Smile where no where near as good as Queen. And if that happened it wouldnt be called Smile, it would end up as Queen + Tim Staffel

I always thought it should be Queen- (Queen minus) instead of Queen+

I think instead of doing NEW stuff, they should re-release their Smile album, that way all us fans could listen to their stuff, not just a privileged few

I do too...but I'm not that angry!


it's just something that kinda annoyed me for a while, I took the opportunity or mention of it to vent. I didn't mind it for greatest hits III, but once they put it on the FM Tribute concert it started to anoy me as if they were making a franchise out of it...

I'd love to see Smile reformed. Ive always liked a few of their songs that Ive had the opportunity to listen to and I just like the name.. it's bright and cheery...
