And it was NOT a pretty sight!
Rest assured, the legacy of Freddie and Queen's 1985 legendary performance WILL STAND in infamy.

Robbie only did a brief into from WWRY, not the whole song, leading into his song ''Let Me Entertain You''. Was awful. He has a very thin, voice, and little vocal range or power that just isn't full, rich, deep and can't belt like Freddie.

And...the world survived!

She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

I agree,he was awful!



It's a long hard struggle

But you can always depend on me

And if you're ever in trouble

You know where I will be

adding his flavor made it cool.

Robbie raised the concert to a new pitch. He proved he can handle an audience and got them to interact. A true entertainer of the highest degree.

Freddie did it last time, Robbie did it this time.

Robbie was good. Most of you have said a lot of times that 'Paul Rodgers is not Freddie, so don't wait to hear Freddie's versions of songs' so what the hell you think that Robbie is Freddie?! He sung song in his own way.

in his own way, yes....

singing the wrong words and making a mockery of the song.

I hope Brian & Roger are pleased with themselves.

How many the wrong words Paul Rodgers sung during the tour?

It got the crowd going - he did his job. So what if he didn't sing the words correctly - 200,000 people at Hyde Park didn't give shit, they just partied and joined in. Shit, I am surprised no-one has mentioned the half mic stand yet - that's worth another 198 pages of Robbie Williams being a wanker for trying to be like Freddie.

Bob, I thoroughly agree, He did a great job, and certainly got the crowd going.

BTW, someone has mentioned the mic stand .....
