I've said it before and I will say it again:

Queen + Rufus Wainright would be the best possible band for today. Rufus is no Freddie(nobody is even close) but he has a sound that would click with Queen. I would love, LOVE to hear Rufus cover The Millionare Waltz just once. This guys has a sound that would merge with Brian and Roger in a very perfect way. Anyone else agree with me???

Hmmm... I have to say that I do like quite some of his work.
But every time I listen to his voice for more then 15 minutes my cat starts to ruin the curtains...

marry me Ameriqueen. (if you're a guy).

i've been telling all my friends for years now that Rufus is so amazing and that i think he is very much influenced by queen's early work and especially Freddie's theatrical tracks. i think that is why he is one of my favorite active artists...

god, to see him with Queen would be like... like... Heaven on earth or something. amazing.


Thank you my darlings, you lot of tarts.

I think he would be great on some of the camp cabaret style Queen material like Seaside Rendevous, Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon, The Millionaire Waltz, Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy
I don't think he would be so good on their more rock and pop oriented material.
I sure would love to hear a Rufus Wainwright/Queen collaboration on some campy cabaret style pieces.

He's a great talent, but it'd be high comedy hearing him do Ogre Battle or Tie Your Mother Down. His voice is as hefty as mine.


You know, good times are now.
