Well, we can be pretty certain Bri's not busy signing autographs.
But he IS busy writing rants about it on his soapbox! Lol!
i wonder if queen really dont want to do it incase there compared to there performance in 85 with freddie hmmm we all know how much the press loves queen;)
You took the WORDS out of my mouth. I actually have been thinking about this all week long myself.
It has to be a NO-WIN siutation for them and a hard decision, which I would not want to be the one to have to make. It's a case of Damned if they DO, Damned if they Don't.
If they DO play...while I am sure Queen fans will be jumping for joy...
...you know there WILL be criticsm and comparisons by press, other bands, even some fans (aka Brians Permed Poodle), to their landmark 1985 Live Aid performance...even though this is all about performing for a good cause, and not whether you give the best performance like some contest.
If they do NOT play...Queen fans, and the VERY same critics & press, will say...
1) It's because of Queen's very FEAR of my explanation above and that they copped and chickened out.
2) They were too busy with Lisbon & the tour to do something for a good cause and return the favor to Geldof for all but saving their career by asking them to perform at the original 1985 Live Aid...and For Geldof doing a video clip/or satellite link for 46664 Arctic.
There is no winning situation here. There is Definitely going to be criticsm no matter WHICH decision they make, whether Queen decides TO DO it and play Live 8, or to NOT play it, via satellite.
Criticsm and the press ragging on Queen follows Queen as it always has and always will.
But my opinion is...F**K whatever critsicsm for either situation...and go ahead and Play Live 8 via satellite.
Queen should make their decision by listening to ONE thing only...their heart and their conscinse.
BY Participating in a Benefit/Charity social/political awareness good cause...THAT is ALL that should matter to them, and for that alone...they will have made the BEST decision.
This is NOT about their career. It's about giving to a good cause and doing the right thing.
