can you read the mind of a dead person?


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

But since Queen was all four of them (Fred, Bri, Rog and John), then surely the new tour should have been billed as

Queen -Freddie Mercury -John Deacon +Paul Rodgers?

As someone whose native language is not English I find it interesting to see that in the Anglo-American language "should have", "could have" and "would have" are slowly being replaced by "should of", "could of" and "would of". I wouldn't be surprised if in twenty years time that would be the standard way of spelling it.

I don't know if it's some kind of slang or anything but I've never read this "should OF" thing out of this forum. Maybe because my native language is spanish and I don't read or post in any other forums. It's not in the grammar books, at least. I think it makes no sense. I just assumed that it was only non-english speaking posters that wrote it incorrectly that way.

I know it's not supposed to be a 'grammatically correct' forum (and everybody makes mistakes) but sometimes it just seems people are too lazy to write full words, specially when the abbreviated version of the phrase makes no sense.

Don't kill me for this, I'm a pain in the ass when it comes to critisizing grammar in spanish but I don't mean to be the same in english, hehe :)

See ya,

Wiley

I would like to read some proof of Freddie

We will never really know what Freddie would've thought.
For me, speaking as a musician, I would be thrilled to have someone like Paul Rodgers singing my songs after my death.
You don't compose music to have it die with you. You compose with an ear toward something transcendent. You compose to reach people. You compose because you are compelled to. You compose for your own immortality.
You don't compose with a thought that nobody can ever perform your songs.
I bet Freddie would be happy that, all these years after his death, people are thrilled to hear his songs performed by Paul Rodgers and that Paul Rodgers wants to sing those songs.

Freddie Mercury cant be replaced.... They say that he isnt being replaced but when someone is doing what he used to do (and nowhere close to as good i might add) i would call that replacement. Paul Rodgers is stepping in and doing what Freddie should be doing... noone seems to the mention John's part being taken to... its only half of Queen. We as the fans should have veto power on the tour. I love Brian and Roger and they are extremely Talented... but they didnt have to go under the Queen name. Freddie Mercury was Queen. Freddie, Brian, Roger and John were all Queen. But without Freddie or John, they are just Brian and Roger (and Paul) They could call the new band BRP (Burp) in theory. It would also be nice if they excluded Freddies songs... he didnt give permission to use them and I know i would be pissed as hell if someone sang my songs after i was dead. Freddie did them right the first time. No need to give them a bad name. We should just let Queen rest in peace, cause when Freddie died, Queen should have died with him. Thats my 2 cents.

Oh god- it's boring...
You guys had a year for that- ain't enough? Nothing better to do than discussing same old things on internet forums over and over and over again for a year? Sad...

We'll probably never know. However, Freddie was a fan of Paul Rodgers, so he probably doesn't mind.


This can't end well.

Needless to say we cannot know.
If there's a Heaven, I imagine it to be a place where these earthly things will seem so meaningless. I don't think anyone in Heaven can bear a grudge or feel mad about such things as a tour....But I think Freddie might just be having a good laugh, still certain of the fact that he is the champion, and the King...Something like this

As Paul has always been one of Fred´s favourite vocalists due to Brian´s "confessions before the Tour"...

I assume he is "rotating in joy and pleasure"... wherever he is! ;-)
