Paul brings a new take to alot of them.'We will Rock You' is a prime example. Although not my favourite version,it is different,in a good way.

I know hes not everyones cup of tea, but he tries.
As for any fave version. There on a par with each other.

Compared to studio versions - none.

But this live version of I Want It All is undoubtedly much better than it would have been with Freddie.

I also think the same about The Show Must go On as he sings it AMAZINGLY. Yes- IWIA is awesome. I also love Fat Bottomed Girls- very, very ballsy :)

I agree as far as the studio versions are concerned. I also loved IWIA, FBG and TSMGO. I don't know how well Freddie would have sung the ''new'' stuff live and unfortunately we will never find out but I really found these live versions butt kicking.

How the hell do you know if you haven't seen even one gig? It's not about saying no- I'm fine with that. It's just the fact that you say that for the sake of it is... pathetic...

Thanks Fenderek for saving me going on a rant.

I feel for you Sharon.

Not even Queen in the "Q" part of this group.
Can't have "Return of the Champions" when the champion himself is missing.

All good things come to an end and for Queen it
was on Nov 24, 1991.

This group will be on a great rock concert, I'm sure.Is this Queen?

Nope.

???

C´mon Martin... a statement like this is absolutely rediculous!

I´d say this live version of I Want It All is undoubtedly much better than it would have been with John Deacon on bass! :-)

PS: ...of course I´ll have to admit that the operatic section of BoRhap was up to Freddie´s standards! ;-)

...and never forget... "Queen in Concert" wasn´t just Freddie hitting all the high notes... it was more his showmanship than anything else!!!

Brian May + Roger Taylor + the rest of the backing musicians 2005 is more about making money than anything else... in my opinion still enjoyable, but somehow very sad!

The question was whether or not certain Q+PR renditions were better than Queen's renditions, not whether or not this was Queen. Bottom line: you and many others here are far too closed-minded to even entertain the possibility of Queen 2K+ being better in any way, or even having different positive qualities than the old Queen. With that in mind, you will never gain any respect here from people other than those who are completely like-minded as you. People like you are Freddie fans, not Queen fans, or even music fans. If you were, then you would be open-minded to new directions music can take.

Fenderek, you saved me from having to go on one rant, but I just had to go on another one, anyway! :P

Right, so... songs that I think Paul sings better live than Freddie live: I Want To Break Free, and A Kind Of Magic. His ending of Break Free, and also BoRhap... chills up the spine. He just gives a different flavour to the Queen classics, and it's brilliant.

Brian plays I'm In Love With My Car with many more of those little details now than he did in Queen, because he has Jamie doing rhythm guitar. Brian sounded incredibly strong singing I Want It All at Brixton, and I wish he would have continued singing this song throughout the tour - although Paul does do a fine job on this one as well.

And I have to agree, Paul puts a unique spin on WWRY and WATC with his bluesy-style vocals. He also does a fantastic job on The Show Must Go On. Paul definitely has a better vocal range than Freddie did on stage. Too bad so few people have a true appreciation for this man and what he does.

But of course, nobody will ever have the stage presence that our beloved FM had. But that isn't what Paul is. Paul is being Paul, not trying to emulate FM, and that's why I like him as well.

In my opinion TSMGO would have been better sung by freddie than paul...
And i want to add that the greatest part of the songs are better sung by freddie, no doubt about. I'm not saying Paul was bad, i actually think he did a good job.
the songs that fits his voice very good are for me fat bottomed girls, we will rock you i want to break free(but freddie gave something more in it) and his songs. not sure about i want it all, i have to listen it again...

though talking about the "new queen stuff" we're just using fantasy.


Anything too stupid to be said... is sung.

Why should we compare? It is just a new era for Brian and Roger.Unfortunately Freddie passed to another stage, dimension or whatever and we are deeply sorry for that.I am sure many of us still do not or can not digest or accept that sad fact.I think Brian and Roger are struggling to overcome that situation (they refused lots of gigs in the past since Freddie was not in this world anymore...) and they are just doing what they know and enjoy: music.I thank them for sharing their art with us fans and I am very happy for they found someone with such a long experience as a singer, with his own style, to get together onstage and keep on rocking us.They are friends and get along great, they are having fun and being productive,they aro so positive and creative, they are alive... so that is what counts, doesn't it?

I know opinions are so subjective, so I can only repeat, thank you Brian, Roger and Paul.

And dear Freddie, you were so special for all of us and you will always be in our hearts.

Peace and whole lotta love.

I prefer Paul's Fat Bottomed Girls and Tie Your Mother Down to Freddie's.

I don't know about songs played better than by Queen. They are quite different and I really like some of the Q+PR renditions.
I had no idea Paul Rodgers could do justice to songs like TSMGO.
