Brian and Roger are still alive and they miss touring.

They have the right to do it with or wothout John.

The Question is if it's ok to tour under the name Queen. But it's already analized on another topic.

IF, for any reason, Brian and Roger wouldn't have the right or permission to use Queen's name, what name do you think they could use?

i say "Regal Heritage"

B&R, although that can mean Batman & Robin as well


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Free Smile, The Good Company (relates to Paul's band and to Queen song), 'Hair, Sunglasses and Paul Rodgers'... Whatever they want... 'Queen minus Fred and Deaky'...

Queen II, Queen Two, Queen Too. Queen (The Next Generation). Brian May's All Star Band.

For me there is nothing more pathetic than to attend one of those god-damn awfull 60's reunion gigs. You know the type. Brian Poole and a Tremalo. The Searcher. Gerry With His Pacemaker. Herman's A Hermit.

Old men all. George Best at Hibs. Gazza at Boston United.

Only Cagney and Cantana, had the sense to walk away.

They could use the same trick that former members of Yes used for their 1989 tour. As they couldn't use the Yes logo they put it this way: "Anderson Bruford Wakeman and Howe: an evening of Yes music".
It could be cool to have:
"Brian May and Roger Taylor: an evening on Queen music"
What do you think?

They should play songs of Paul too, I think, so the name would be very long: "Brian May and Roger Taylor, Paul Rodgers: an evening on Queen and Free/Bad Company music"

How about: "Brian May and Roger Taylor."

Or if egos are reversed: "Roger Taylor and Brian May."

Unlike bands like the Who and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, which have member changes every couple of weeks, Queen officially disbanded several years ago. It is no more. Therefore, it's inappropriate for them to use the name, just as a matter of simple logic.

(Of course, as you can all probably guess, I don't care if they start wearing pink leather jackets and touring under the name *NSYNC, you can't keep me away from any venue where BM and RT are performing Queen songs. If they come near me, I'll go.)


God wants you to send me some money.

Hows about Brian May and Roger Taylor? It always works when you use a famous name...

brian & roger are free to do what they want
if they want to use the queen name, they can.
I'm not agree with this because queen is fred+bri+john+rog, but i'm just a simple fan, and my opinion (or ours) can't change their decission.
they will use the queen name, just because it sells more tickets and records than other name

And i would like to see John on stage after a long time, he's just a simple bassist, he is not the greatest bassist in the world, but he is part of the band, so, if bri&rog would like to tour and use queen name, at least let us see the 3 alive members on stage.

Stop these threads of Brian and Roger using Queen! They formed Queen so they can use it if they want. It's not like a bunch of nobody's are using Queen as their band name.
