I could be interested if a guitarist:
* could play his guitar
* could tune his guitar
* knew which way to hold his guitar
* knew what an amplifier is
* didn't ask too many quetsions

You have got to be kidding me. What happens when you're in the middle of Hammer to Fall and you have to post on Queenzone on how to get that 'hammer-to-fall' sound?
Is this "Queen II" idea of yours going to include a Freddie that asks what kind of champagne glass to use?

I actually have a mate who may be interested. He asks if you could supply a backing tape of the two of you performing so he can assess whether his level meets yours & vice versa.

mp3 will be fine.

You didn't have the courtesy - it was not fogetfulness, it was rudeness.

Freddie is dead. Maybe you can dig up a corpse to be your Freddie Mercury 2

Johnny-I would tell you to change from playing instruments to playing with yourself. But I'm scared you will flood the forum with "What hands to use" and "How to achieve a Brian May orgasm".-All stupid jokes aside.

Dude dont be in a cover band because you will be crap. Not that I am making fun your "uber" skills or whatever you have. It is because ALL cover bands are crap. Good musicians, Good notes, Crap cover band. Why? Because no one will EVER match the band they cover. Make your own songs find a nearby singer and jam to Queen. But dont try to emulate them. Make your own songs. In regards to money. You probably get 500 bucks a week for a cover band. Why in a real band you could make MILLIONS. So forget that I am going to be the next Queen. No you wont, go out and be sucessful. And t is much easier to play your own songs.

As a musician myself, It is much easier to play your own stuff.

To Be the next Freddie in my band you must be:
. Live in the UK
. A very talented powerful singer
. Have a lot of Guts
. Be confident
. A huge Fan of Freddie and Queen


First of all, if I lived in the UK, I would be emailing you my phone number right now (not that I'm anywhere near as good as Freddie was but hey, I fit the last four of the criteria...).

Second, I highly doubt you'd make a good Brian May. I also think your band is for shit 'cos you don't have a John.

Johnny's got the RS all tuned up and ready to go? This is the fourth horseman of the apocalypse. Surely the end must be near.
