Paul ofcourse.

George is a great singer. But I doubt he can handle songs like Hammer to Fall

I prefer Michael!!
I really don't like the idea of Paul trying to replace Freddie! Who does he think he is, eh?
He's copying all these moves Freddie did on stage!

Both are good singers, But I'd go for George ANY day. Not that I think Paul will do a bad job though!

I think Roger and Brian should sing. They could handle a show without any outsider's help. I think George Michael's voice sometimes can get close to Freddie's (sometimes!). But since nobody can replace him, then why even try? Roger and Brian did it great with Queen songs, and with "No one but you". I hate to think they're going on tour with someone, anyone, trying to impersonate Freddie, though of course they'll deny it. Give me a new Queen album with some creativity!

I think both Brian and Roger are too old to manage to sing alone whole concert. Besides, their voice is not really category of Freddie, Paul, Michael and many other singers. So, I would prefer if they would stick to the drums, guitars and backing vocals - what they do the best. I think they are well aware of that too. However, I would love to hear some Bri and Rog solo stuff also on concert (at least one or two songs if possible).

I really don't know who would be better, Paul or Michael. We heard Michael on Tribute and Paul on HoF and from those few bits I can't really decide. No matter who would be decided, the song list for tour then would need to be adjusted to him. Freddie knew how to interpret those songs - simply because he was involved in process of creating and recording them. For someone else to do it he/she either needs to copy it as it was (that would be BAD move) or add something own in that, but keeping song familiar to the audience. List of songs for Paul and Michael would probably not be the same. Same applies to any other potential singer. (I always wanted to hear Tina Turner live performance of Don't Stop Me Now as I think that song fits her).

I dont think Paul Rodgers would be alowed to just attempt to replace Freddie in some tacky queen tribute way simply because Brian and Rodger loved Freddie as much as anyone. They want PR to be just another unique singer.

i also dont think Brian and rodger have, or have ever had, a massive vocal rnage - surely needed to sing queen songs. Therefore an outsider is a must for this tour. I dont know a lot about PR, i'll probably end up being a fan after i see them in hyde park, but i hear he has similar qualities to Freddie, i say support the boys and i rekon they'll sound awsome.

I've seen the Hall of Fame bit from Paul Rodgers.... and also I've heard Somebody to love with George Michael singing....

After listening to both.... I definetely prefer George Michael!

That's all I'm going to say about it...

No one. Queen is dead, I've said it, and will continue. That's my opinion and I don't deserve to be bitched. (Understand Linda?)

Yes but it's the closest thing we are going to get to Queen. For all we know it may be the last time they go on tour.
