Robbie stormed Live8 London yesterday and did justice to WWRY. Okay Freddie cannot be replaced but Robbie would be the second best thing. Whether you like his songs or not he has an excellent way of getting a crowd going and has that bit of arrogance (which Freddie did as well)needed on a stage like that.

I'm sure Robbie would have been a much better option than that gimp Rodgers.

Drop the Queen name Brian and Roger and employ Mr Williams and I might just go to your gig.

RODGERS OUT ROBBIE IN.

atleast paul rodgers is a vocalist, robbie williams is a teen idol/celebrity in my opinion. singing definitely isnt on the top of the list of things he does well and if it is thats pretty sad...that was mean, i'm trying not to be so negative so i can have good karma. anyway george michael is definitely a singer and could handle a lot of the queen songs vocally. i dont know if george has the versatility to pull off a tie your mother down or hitman but he could sing a ot of the songs freddie and john wrote...lol, ironically the two members not in queen because of two totally different circumstances.

I think one could fairly say that George Michael was a teen idol/celebrity for the first several years of his career as well. Wham! were about as teen idol-y as you could get in the 80s.

Sack Rodgers Employ Robbie Williams?

OVER MY DEAD BODY!!

They employ Williams and I'll walk. I'm serious, I will turn my back on 'em and just become a casual fan... Oh who the fuck am I trying to kid? They employ Williams and I'll have a go at Brian on his soapbox for it to say the least. I'd probably think up a dastardly plan if they did hire the bugger, but since that ain't happening in the forseeable future, then I can definitely sleep at night...

No no no no what are you on? Queen + Paul Rodgers (for me at least) = two greats of classic rock, Robbie Williams = a wannabe.

Paul Rodgers or Robbie Williams? Are you serious? William's hasn't got one tenth of Paul Rodger's vocal talent. And he looked like young Steptoe on Saturday.

The Poodle!!! Yay!

"In the beginning, God made the light.
Shortly thereafter God made three big mistakes.
The first mistake was called 'man'.
The second mistake was called 'wo-man'.
And the third mistake was the invention of the poodle.
The reason the poodle was such a big mistake, was because God originally wanted to build a Schnauzer, when he fucked up(...)"
(Frank Zappa)

What's everyones problem with Robbie Williams?

He ain't that bad... in fact I quite like him. No offence to Paul, who I think is awesome, but I recon Robbie could command a crowd far better than Paul - and in a more Freddie like way (given Freddie - and Queen - are heroes of his). And I think it is so idiotic to say he can't sing - that's crap. Liking him or not liking him is fine, but making stupid criticisms is pointless.

We Will Rock You, vocally, mayb not be the best song he could have chosen, and apart from a few Freddie-isms thrown in, he tried to be nothing more than himself. Some of you need to realise that that is what it's all about.

He did Freddie proud out there.

BPP- I thought you were about QUEEN RIP 1991
Now you're saying they should do it with Robbie. You're nothing but a foockin' hypocrite!!!

More appeal to the young audience? Maybe..
But would I want to hear few Robbie tracks at the Queen gig? Nope...
Would it be Queen + Robbie Williams or Robbie Williams + Queen?
Would you really want to see Brian and Roger reduced to backing musicians? Not really...

I don't think that was obvious when he was singing 'Wake me Up Before You Go-Go'.

i'm trying to be very positive and good natured but i'm just so compelled to say...ARE YOU DEAF robbie williams is not a strong singer, his voice is real weak, what i've heard of it. i'm not talking about his live 8 thing, i didnt even see live 8, i'm talking about him in general. he strain to hit 'easy' notes. about george michael, it was very obvious he was a good singer on wake me up before go go, i love that song because the tone in his voice is amazing. i could listen to any wham song because ghe's that good of a singer, i dont think many would disagree with that. i even like wham rap, for comical reasons more so than as a masterpiece.

How could anyone have enjoyed Robbie Williams?? He was crap! This is supposed to be a world stage, a showcase of the VERY BEST ENTERTAINERS the world has to offer. The man was completely average, he just ran around in a stupid trenchcoat imploring the crowd to 'let him entertain them'. No thankyou.

He's such a bloody average singer too. Off the top of my head - Paul McCartney. The guy is 63, it's been around 38 years since he recorded Helter Skelter and at Live 8 he could STILL nail it in excellent form. And people are supposed to accept the lukewarm Robbie Williams? Go to hell.

Finally, the suggestion that he front Queen +. Basically, you have Paul Rogers who isn't that remarkable. How would replacing him with another average singer help anything?
