Nice topic... I would like to erase John's retirement ;). Or maybe the release of the Freddie Tribute on DVD and replecing it with the FULL tribute INCLUDING the first part.

Apart from that I frankly elieve that they had a pretty unique history and it made them what they are now and I can live with that (only because I got a ticket for a show in April; otherwise this message would be slightly different)

I'd make them erase the Works/Miracle albums, tell them to have a nice long break, and come back and make one blinding album instead. Sorry but those two albums just sound like a band treading water to me. They needed to get off the album/tour treadmill for a while.

I can`t believe it! You would erase the two greatest songs of Queen in the 80s. The Works was their most successful album in the UK ever.
Be glad that we have The Works and The Miracle. But fans like you are only satisfied if Queen had stuck in a 70s time-warp musicwise.



I actually like a lot of the 80's (and 90's) stuff. But what you get from Hot Space onwards is a lot of filler. There was very little filler in the 70's, albums were strong from start to finish.
There are tracks that I like on both The Works and The Miracle, I just feel that these two albums have far more filler than any of the others. Lose the filler, pack the strong tracks onto one album, call it 'The Miracle Works' and I'd be a happy bunny.

was the FM Tribute concert pointless?
Made in Heaven album?
Queen's contribution to 46664?

Everything post-1982 other than Innuendo (album) IWIA, WIAWI and the re-working of I Was Born......

Anything after MIH doesn't qualify FOR ME as Queen, so It's not even in the equation.

obvious;
- the Britney/Pink/Beyonce and Five collaboration
- John's retirement
- Not the "2005 Paul Rodgers Tour" being the first tour, but the "1995 George Michael Tour" being the first one
and after that, there would have been a new tour every 5 year :D
so ..in 2000 they would've toured with ... well .. I think Robbie :)

I'd erase the Pepsi collaboration with Britney Spears, Pink and Beyonce. It was just embarassing to watch, especially with how out of place Brian and Roger seemed.

I don't hate it. It's great to sing along to, and I love the version on GVH 1 with Roger singing a few lines.

People who would erase essential parts of Queen's musical career (and I'm talking about anything they did with Freddie) are just fuckin' pigheaded.

Sure, Queen made a couple of little mistakes as a band (like certain songs on 'Hot Space') but I think they learned from those mistakes and helped the band become even better.

I remember Brian mentioned once that he did not regret not one single thing he did with Queen as an artist... and that's the way it should have been.

5ive, Robbie Williams, and shit like that

Everything they did with Freddie was perfect - Hot Space is a great album with some great tracks - like Put Out the Fire, Life is Real, Las Palabras De Amor. And Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy is indeed a great and original Freddie song !
