Hello,
If Brian nd Roger went on tour to do Queen songs like Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust, We Will Rock You etc, Does anyone think that Bri, would sing all the songs on his own (of course Rog doing backing vocals) or is Brian To Quiet and would really want someone else to do it?


Brian May is the Best Guitarist ever!

not sure about Slash

But at the live concert in Leipzig this year he sang live and I swear it sounded very good.

Sorry for my terrible english. I know it's not the best ;)

I believe that Bri would sing some of the songs(maybe 5 or 6) and left the rest songs to somebody else,I trully don't know...depends on.


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

Brians good with the soft sad songs. Hard rock songs like Hammer to Fall he seems to struggle with when singing live.

I originally thought that Brian and Roger could have done the tour on their onw, but seeing the effort they put in in Basel and Birmingham I think it takes a lot out of them!

Sharing the lead role between three seemed to help... they're not getting any younger you know!

Plus Brian jsut doesn't have the voice to do things like Tie Your Mother Down etc, just listen to his solo Brixton CD...


In the days of my youth, I was told what it means to be a man...

I agree. It was a fantastic presentation. He is a good singer, not the same like Freddie, but he is good.

I've heard Brian sing tons of soft ballads...and the hard rockers. His version of WWRY from I think the Songwriters Hall Of Fame Ceremony, He tears the roof off the place.

He's no Freddie, but he sounds every bit as good and dynamic as Paul Rodgers, if not more so, like he truly enjoys interpreting his own song, and he just rocks out.

On the current tour, his take on LOML, or his own 39, he sounds great.

I've always said I would love Brian and Roger to sing Queen's repetoire.
