Quote from a Queenzone member about Rodgers performance last night:
"As for Paul, well I never judged him before the gig but after watching him tonight I thought he was a waste of space, utter shit, I feel bad for saying that as he's had to fill a big gap but I think Brian and Roger did a much much better job."
Two things for next time don't use the name Queen and get a decent singer. He will probably blame the crowd for smoking causing his crap voice.
Freddie admired this guy ? My arse.
We should tell him to go a ruin his own bands cuz they are no bloody good either.
You wanna play it this way??? Fine! Here are some other quotes (just a few):
"I was very surprised that Globen was almost full, and that the crowd was so different - both younger and older people.
And Paul Rogders was really good. He had a lot of respect for the songs and wasn't trying to be Freddie."
"I've been a Queen-fan since 1976, but since now I am a big fan of Paul Rodgers too. I've seen them perform in Antwerpen, but this was better. The audience went crazy, everybody was singing and enjoying the music. And off course Roger Taylor and Brian May were great. But for me Paul Rodgers is the one that made it happen. Just by standing out there, singing Queen songs, not trying to copy Freddie's act, giving his own bluesy interpretation of the songs we all know so well... Being out there on stage surrounded by all these hugh fans of Queen.. having the courage to do it... I think it was GOOD! I loved it, I'm glad I was there. This is gonna be a very good memory for me. And Paul.. thanks for singing and performing, you've done a great job!!!"
"But, that doesn't mean I had the time of my life. I've been to the Paris gig, but this one was much better. And... deep respect for Paul Rodgers."
"So, why haven't they met Paul Rodgers years ago ??? In my opinion they did it right and the show must go on. I hope that this wasn't the last tour of them. Don't blame me for this ... I loved Freddie for being a musical genius and I still love him for all that he has done to the music worldwide, but this new guy is really amazing, too, and since yesterday Queen is for me still alive."
