As the subject seems to be dying down a little bit now, IF John turned round and said he was going to do the tour after all, would that change the opinion of the 'this is not Queen' camp.

If John were to turn up, it would lend the project that extra bit of credibility in terms of being "fully" endorsed by all those who played in the original band.

But the fact remains that any band without it's original members is not the band it started out as. You can call it what you like I guess, but "Queen" it ain't.

that's a big yes, there will always be those who think that queen died with fred, and there probably right , but john can bring a more legit feel to this tour, it would truly be a queen + paul rodgers tour, it would feel real.

Well i sure did!

I LOVED checking out John....most folks either totally overlook his efforts or totally ignore him. This is so sad, as him is HILARIOUS to watch sometimes!

Gotta love al those Classic Deacy Moments....

Wish we could have some more.....

i think i would be more exited about the tour, but i still do not think it will be all that good. i think it would just be good to see him again. i agree with deacon's 1st choice, he will be there in one way or other, after all he came to wwry premiere and was in the audience at the party at the palace. i think he is just the only one who realises how things should be and respects what queen had.

My dear mother told me it was announced on the radio 2 news that Queen was touring, and John would be joining them. I'm still hoping she didn't miss-hear...

If John were on tour with Brian & Roger, then we could say it's Queen!!!


in this case, Queen + Paul Rodgers


like Queen + George Michael, remember?

Would be a little bit more Queen.
AND it would attract even more people right because no one's heard from him or seen him in "a while".
:-)

I personally would look much more forward to the whole thing but only because I'm a big Deacon Fan!!

If John joined I would think it was some kind of weird joke or have a heat attack.

John must be flattered if he reads this Notice Board.... Everybody's talking about him. Queen need a decent bassman for their new tour.... I don't expect John to participate, but it would be great.


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

I`m gonna tell you a story
Last week I`ve heard on the radio a guy who said that this new Queen tour will be like Smile, but with a good bassist (he meant that without John, the band will have a better bassist)

I think with John, this new tour will be more real. We could say that it will be Queen + PR
John isnt just a bassist, he is a excelent hitmaker, he wrote some of the more billant songs, so, without him, "Queen" will lost sucess, and people will keep on saying that this band is not Queen, because two of his members are not in this band.

it would definatley give te tour more credability and make it more of a Queen thing rather than a joint solo effort with another singer!!

The addition of John would make it a true Queen project. I love how John is becoming "Godfather" of future Queen projects. He's awesome.
