i think a lot of people would jump on you for asking if they sounded better than queen, i dont know thats just what i would think but i dont know, i never saw them but in my mind it would be far fetched to think they could match the beast that was queen.

i saw them in '93 at the cardiff ice rink and brixton academy.
the cardiff gig was great, but i had a bad tummy for the brixton gig so i just sat on the floor at the back suffering.

i always preferred roger live though especially on the happiness tour.
roger always seemed to have a better set list in my opinion.



we've no ancestral halls, no haughty portraits on our walls, no family monuments at all, unless it's my cousin sheila's stupendous clevage.

in answer to the question 'better than queen' the answer is no, but they weren't that far behind.
the whole queen live experience was awsome, sound and vision wise, whereas brian's band were 'only' excellent

I went and saw the Another World tour @ Newcastle, but I didn't have too high expectations for the night.

I was Wrong. It's not often you see the drummer doing a solo whilst his drumsticks are on fire!
