"the good skirt music is missing"
To 13. Queen with new singer Paul Rodgers in Vienna play April
COURIER: Would you have ever thought for playing again under the name Queen in the Viennese town hall?
BRIAN MAY (guitar): That was never planned. I had already copied my Queen life off our "incoming goods want skirt of You" musical.
But then an invitation came to the 50-Jahre-Fender-festival, and there I played coincidentally also with Paul Rodgers. I have the volume of this
Appearance thereafter at Roger Taylor (Queen queen-Schlagzeuger; Anm.) sent and also he was inspired. A few weeks later should
both Queen and Paul with resound to OF Fame show in London play. And we imagined, was the attempt worth, it nevertheless once
to try too third. Suddenly has it click made, and there we knew that more behind it is there.
Now the tour is only exceeded punkto ticket sales by U2.
I had hoped the fact that we still move a few people but that we sell off largest resounding of Europe in shortest time, is
Why are there no auxiliary concerts?
Because this route developed spontaneously, we in many cities only more that to take could, which between other concerts was available,
and we also only a certain number of concerts in series to play can, in order to preserve Pauls voice. But we plan some
Open air concerts in the summer.
Why is bassist John Deacon missing?
Naturally it would be beautiful, if it were with our route comeback thereby. But it selected now times the musical retirement. There can
one make nothing. John enjoys his life far off route stress, participates however in our hearts also, as naturally also
Without Freddie Mercury and John Deacon - some critics call this Queen route Mogelpackung.
That is Queen, because Roger Taylor and I are Queen! It concerns to us thereby only the music. We know that we together with Paul Rodgers very much
good music to make know. Very good skirt music, something, which is missing to the Musik-Business anyhow for a long time. And to it itself the critics should
please! The fans do what the advance booking proves.
Will Paul Rodgers be thereby an only singer?
No, also Roger and I will take over vowel parts. And also Freddies voice will sometimes ring out.
Will one hear also your all-largest hit, "Bohemian Rhapsody"?
That is a very difficult decision, which we did not make yet. Because this Song is Freddies baby much too much. Finally
it must decide Paul whether it wants to sing the piece. But fortunately we do not only have this a hit. That most difficult venture up
this route is not called: What do we play? Separate: What don't we play? But we become already clearly more Queen than Free and
Bath company Songs play.
They were not for 19 years any more with Queen on route. To which Songs do you look forward at most?
"universe right Now" and "Can't GET Enough OF Your Love" and all the other Songs of Paul Rodgers! Because now also the Songs from its
grandiosen career to play, that is real the stretching at this route. That is many more exciting than our Songs. But discover by Paul
I straight many Queen Songs completely again. And also Freddie was me already for a long time no longer as close by it as in the last days.
Is this route now the worthy parting the volumes Queen - or a new beginning?
That will not run with security as our parting tour. This co-operation with Paul Rodgers opens so many new for us
Possibilities. It will give further concerts, also in the USA, where we played 1982 last. And also again new music. Perhaps
we already play or other fire-new Song on this route.
