If you are against this tour with Paul Rodgers and you are on here claiming that this is the end of the world, I've got a great idea for you. Don't go to the show! That's right. Don't go!!!

This will leave more room for people like me so I can get better seats. There are others like me here who can actually appreciate that Brian and Roger started this band before we were even born. So I guess it's not "my" band since I wasn't around in the studio to help create any of their albums.

Those of you who are against this even go so far as to make Brian and Roger out to be traitors. If you don't have enough respect for Brian and Roger's decisions then perhaps you are the traitors. Give it a chance like you gave "Hot Space" a chance and you may be surprised.

And if you did not listen....They are not replacing Freddie. It's a celebration of music that is supposed to be played live. 13 years is long enough to grieve.

In short, it's not my band or your band and we are their fans. We owe them the respect of at least seeing or hearing Paul with them. If they only made decions based on trying to please everyone, they would have self destructed by 1975. Thank you Mr. May. And thank you Mr. Taylor for keeping this alive and giving us something to look forward to from the greatest band ever.

So what are you gonna do? Are you gonna take a sign to the show calling them traitors? I doubt it. Are you gonna boycott the show with a protest? You'll probably just be 2 faced and go to the show anyway. Dont stand by me though. I'd like to enjoy myself.

I preffer newbies who start they lifes over QZ with another kind of statements...

You'd better ask us how old Roger is than repeat stuff that have been told about 1000 times in recent weeks.

haven't i already said this? - TWICE!!!
(see below)

don't know about the general consensus on here...but myself, i 'm sick to the back teeth of comments like

"queen died when freddie died"
"paul rodgers can fuck off, he's not freddie"
"i won't go see them live"

these aren't considered opinions - they are pure vitriol/poison/bitchin'. i speak as someone who was lucky enough to see queen (freddie/john/brian/roger) live five times and so i have no axe to grind. Howver, there must be millions of people the world over who would love to hear queen's music performed live (in some format) - and the current lineup appears to be the only chance for many. for fekks sake people, lighten up - let the people who want to go see them live!!! there's nothing your constant whining/bitchin' and complaining can do to change things!!!
the current lineup may not be queen as we knew them - but get used to the idea - it's queen as we will know em - for the time being. face facts - 50% of queen WANT THIS LINEUP - so fekkin' well grow up...Bri/Rog are trying to get the queen music back out there...13 fekkin' years after FM died - this is more than long enough time for the emotional scars to heal- and if they now feel the time is right then we should all respect their wishes - instead of whinging like babies. if you don't like it, go find yourself another band....after all YOU sure as hell ain't behaving like the kind of fans that Brian and Roger want!!

the glory days are long gone - this is it - live with it - or p*** off and leave the rest of us alone...to enjoy what is left of the queen legacy

You say it as often as daily prayer! We realized what do you mean - calm down, buddy

daily prayer...i'm an agnostic-atheist-sceptic

and as for the calm down - i am very calm (and chilled) - i don't let ignorance wind me up
commenting on something is one thing - but getting angry is another

i drink irish and american whiskey (note the E)
there's no way i could ever be anything but relaxed

Drink what you want, but that's not a reason for post the same reply to all topics! We all understood your point of view!
