I'm not American, although I don't think that Johns songs are crap.

I only skimmed it. But from what I read, I think the author sucks :-)

I'm from Canada but I can relate and sympathize with this guy. A good article I thought.

The article itself was okay, but he was definitely wrong about being the last Queen fan in America. Also, I like some of John's songs. They aren't all bad.

just like Queen? People say they are 'tongue-in-cheek'... don't yell at me, but what does that mean, anyway?

'tongue in cheek' means not serious


Thank you.

tounge in cheek people.
It was a satirical article not far off base for the state of things in the 80's.
I was ridiculed for having Queen as my favorite band when Hot Space came out. I didn't care then and I care less now. He's got some points.

I kind of see how he feels. In 1997 when Spice Girls seemed to rule the world, a lot of people couldn't understand why I listened to Queen (I was born in '86 so I missed out on a lot of the 80's).

Spread Your Wings is one fo the greatest songs ever and whilst Queen singles didn't do that well in 80's America, most of them did still chart.
