No one now that I've heard him do Queen's and his own music with the guys. He was just great, in my opinion. I think this tour will be a success.

I think he`s very good; as I told someone this morning, the tour might be really good. It`s the name what I complain about


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.

I think David Bowie might be good as a replacement.

Be glad it's not your band Sebastian, one thing less for you to worry about :-)

I agree with Sebastian - Brian & Roger shouldn't be using the Queen name.

I think they should, cause they have been working their asses off for 30 years for their band.

But there are other topics for this

Why replace him? I think he'll do fine.

during the seventies, a band called Angel toured, collected a following, and released a number of pretty good albums, despite the fact that they were "discovered" by gene Simmons, of Kiss fame. and signed to a recording contract on the Kiss label. The singer's name was Frank Di Mino, and if he can still sing, (there was a 2000 reunion) he was deeply into progressive art rock, a lot like queen 1 and 2; they were pertimes compared in an unflattering manner, although they were really quite good. Dimino's was a sensitive and emotive voice, and he loved to soar from lento and dulce to allegro and fortissimo, displaying good vocal range and dynamic control. He woulkd, in my self contained opinion, be,without question, a perfect fit.

I don't know why they just didn't ask Jeff Scott Soto to sing with them.
It would boost Jeff's career and we'd get someone who can tackle Queen's songs better than anyone else I've ever heard.
The man is a born performer.

James Dean Bradfield from the Manics... he's got a very strong voice and he's also a bloody good guitarist as well... so he could take over guitar duties whilst Brian or Roger sing....Honestly, he IS a damn fine singer!

Paul Rodgers is good enough.

No one is going to pretend it's Queen as they used to be - it's not, Freddie is dead and nothing will change that. So, as long as this is briefly acknowledged in the live show (I dunno, Freddie vocals + images on the big screen at the start - and perhaps something based off It's a Beautiful Day/Track 13) then who cares? Time to move on, it's a bloody insult to Freddie's memory to just say 'oh damn he's dead, boo hoo let's not play anymore'. And if they're called Queen, big deal? They ARE what is left of Queen, it's them that worked to give that title it's meaning.

Just kicking myself for not living in Europe.
