Hi.
Does anybody knows why J. Deacon doesn´t participate anymore with Brian and Roger?.
After all, it would be great see y listen them together again, don´t you think?.
Thanks

John doesn't feel it is Queen without Freddie. John also has six kids(two of which are still at home while the rest of his kids are older) and wants to enjoy watching them grow and wants to be with grandkids if he has any.

Brian, first of all.

No, they exchanges letters only in these days. Though some years ago Roger met with John couple times at each year.

There's an interview with Roger on Brian's site where he clearly says he wrote John a letter, inviting him for the tour and John declined, "blessing" them though and wishin luck...

John Deacon is very strange guy. I don't get it how he doesn't feel any wish to tour again, don't understand how he doesn't miss playing, touring after all these years. It's not all about Freddie, he could do some more music with others, at least he could play wwry afterparties or just be there, but seems he's not interested in music anymore...

Why write letters? Are they too lazy to just visit each other?


Or phone? I don't know why... It's really strange... I know that shortly after GHIII release Roger and John met and talked about something.

Good, this is getting better.
i think John apreciatted Fred more than Bryan and Roger, but cause his personality he did not showed.
I think he believes this new Queen+PR tour is more commercial and not like a Tribute to the band and to Fred like in 1992 and thats the reason he doesn´t want join them.

Btw, does John live far away from Brian and Roger? What about Brian and Roger? Do they live in the same area?

I guess the only ones who see John quite often are his neighbours... :) I would very much like to see some recent picture from him.

I dont think thats true at all - as far as I can tell, the vast majority of fans seem just delighted that there is a "Queen2005" at all.

John Deacon is simply retired; he never liked being in the media spotlight, and is known to be a private type of man - I dont think his failure to participate in this tour reflects his opinion on this or any other recent Queen activity; he simply doesnt want the hassle of being famous - and fair play to him.

Believe me, he doesn´t want to know about the fans. I think he has become an anti-social, or developed some kind of phobia. It´s his live , and he does what he wants, and thats the way it has to be. He can´t take decisions thinking about the fans feelings, it wouldn´t be right.

Probably Freddie was the factor that held him in the group for all those years. I guess he feels that it is not worth it anymore.


Nothing really matters in the end.

John probably thinks his home activities are far more important that being famous. Having his kids wonder where there dad is while he is playing his bass is probably something he doesn't want to do.

If he doesn´tlike the fame and publicity, then why he spend 20 years of his life playing to Queen.
And we are talking about Queen, not about one of those many groups with one or two hits in his entirely life.
So, do you think if Freddie lives John would be or not with the band, just because about fame and al these things?.
