i think Freddie would have been reasonably successful solo, as he did actually show shifting millions of records in his solo career, but this was partly due to him being in Queen in the first place.


We love you Freddie, R.I.P

It`s utterly impossible to know. Perhaps Fred would travel to the US looking for his big break and end up being the singer of Aerosmith, leaving Steven without job and forcing him to move to London, then Steven would be singing in Queen and everybody here would say "Steven is way better singer than that Fred bloke from Aerosmith". Just one of the billions of possibilities.


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.

Of course not. Just listen to some songs on Freddie's solo albums, and compare them with those on Queen albums, where John, Bri and Rog are playing. Waaaaay better.


Give me a good guitar, and you can say that my hair's a disgrace, oh, just find me an open car - I'll make the speed of light out of this place...

That`s an unfair comparison. Fred wrote Mr Bad Guy when he was in his more pop oriented era. If he had had a solo album in 1974 it had been hard-rock + progressive. The question is: how could he get musicians for that? Jeff Beck & co would be expensive to hire, and if he wasn`t famous yet, then he didn`t have enough money, therefore he couldn`t. That`s why he had the benefit of Brian, Roger and John.


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.
