Well i was just wondering if the group would still be touring if Freddie was still alive. My friend seems to think that Freddies voice wouldn't be up to it. Wot do you guys think???

I like this topic (even if it isn't a new one:D ). I think Freddie would've stayed in the music industry at the least. Maybe a tour. His voice wouldn't be bad. There are others who still sound great well into their years. So why not Freddie? :)

I believe he had capabilities to further his movie soundtrack aspirations. His musical ideas that he used seem like they could develop greatly in favor of such a career. I think he would've been great!

He could've done lots of other things too. You never know. Maybe he could've felt a calling toward bus driving or something. :)

Perhaps we wouldn`t be here... the popularity of the band certainly boosted when he died.


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.

If he were alive, I'd be out chasing for him! ;-)


That time will come, one day you'll see, when we can all be friends.

If Freddie was still alive queen would have made 3 more albums in the 90:s and one more 21st century... Their music style would change into the pop, just like britney spears. They would only make one tour on the 90s, whitch would be just pure shit whit Freddie just sitting instead of running around in the stage. They would have come up whith maybe 5 big hits, that someone like Max Martin would have written.
In other words, they would be just shit and people would only remember the glory days of the seventies. So its kinda god that they did quit while they still were on the top! RIP Freddie!

Yes...I'd prefer it if he'd died...I feel weird saying this.
Well, I think the whole ``Queen story´´ ended well. The lead singer diyng, and his mates quiting because of their love for Freddie. And, I wouldn't like to see them all be together, and be all old, and still be in the music industry...it would loose all it's ``Queen personality´´. Queen is supposed to be 4 man who have a lot of talent, and are not young, yet not old, and have great personality, and on stage, they're awesome! Now imagine them old, white-haired, running around the stage...

Wow, calm down! (And press the caps lock key while you're at it.) There's no need to curse anybody out just because they don't feel the need to change history.

I'm betting you've never heard Paul RoDgers sing...he has a very good and incredibly capable voice. Before you go shouting stuff like this you should actually think about your arguement.

If he were alive, he would make a song for himself to do strip or he would have already made it. :D
In the middle '70s, he used to do kimono strip for the encore as he was singing Big Spender ( which I used for my old user name!) and he said he wanted to make some by himself...

If he were alive he would probably retire gracefully.

I too think he would have gracefully retired from Rock Music....however, I could see him doing more with opera...

Or putting out an album of great songs of yesteryear, like Rod Stewert's been doing.

You must think, all he knew was music....and Freddie wasn't one to just sit around.

Who knows, maybe Queen would still be touring...its possible...
Hard to believe Freddie would have been 59 this year.

Queen would sooooo still be ROCKIN!

1QUEN_FAN is obviously not the #1 QUEEN fan, but he might be the #1 QUEN fan although, whatever the hell that is.

Who knows?
It's not like any of us are right.
Pretty much guesses and opinions really.
Either way, I would have still loved Queen.
Cheers

in my opinion, because that is all it is, Freddie's voice being one of such a high range, if he was still touring, we'd be seeing different songs performed, ones were he wouldn't have to strain his voice to hit high notes. His voice was at its peak when he died, but 59 is old for someone who can sing higher then alot of women. My guess is, queen would still be around and recording, but we'd see alot less high "Freddie" songs. But you know what, queen ended in their prime, and we should remember Freddie as he was. AWESOME!
