That's what some of you guys have turned into. One day you are praising Queen for their illustrious career and inspirational songs. The next day you are slamming them for the choices Brian and Roger have made in recent years (i.e. The WWRY Pepsi commercial, and especially Queen + Paul Rodgers)

And don't get me started on all the "Brian May has lost it" posts. I don't like it one bit, you have no remorse, no respect, and no heart if you are going to say such things that desecrate the legacy that Brian has held up to this day.

Every freakin' night that he is out there performing with Roger and Paul, he plays it like he did 20 years ago, and keeps his head up, because that's what he would want us to do as well!

But no! You don't keep your head up; you lower it in "shame", or hide it in "disgust" because you feel he has let us down. Well he hasn't!
If anything, YOU have let him down.

It's all been said before. "Queen died when Freddie died", "Freddie was Queen", and "Queen is nothing without Freddie". That's not true; I apprecite every member of the band just as much as I do with Freddie.

You should too. Own up, and shut up, all you so-called Queen fans. That's all I have to say.

Why is this topic brought up again?
Can we just all forget about it and move on?
A few people said nasty things we all said what we thought about that then topic closed, why you making another theard for us to answer about the SAME THING, it gets used alot...
It was said once why again?
Please can we all move on...
Brian is not crazy and Queen+pr can do what they want, thank you!

*Does best Rodney Dangerfield impression..*

*straightens tie, sticks neck out*

''I tell you no respect, none at all. My mom told me Mickey Mouse had died in a cancer experiment!''

Only Rodney joke I remember.

I have to agree that we all disagree.

But...yeah, I agree Brian and Roger are damned if they do, damned if they don't.

I always said I applaud their collaborations with commercials like Pepsi, the WWRY show, the tour.

I don't necessarily like some of their choices, but at least they are trying to remain relevant and keep working at what they love, making music, and marketing the Queen brand.

Have to say they don't do anything as crass as a lot of artists...I just wish they would still write and record NEW decent music as QUEEN.

it's called opinions - and YOUR is no more right/wrong than anybody else's - and EVERYONE else is entitled to theirs just as you are too!!!
it doesn't make them scum....
(except for the fuckers who spam the boards - who aren't scum - but just intellectually challenged)

if something on TV offends you - you change channel
if there's a picture in the paper you find offensive, you don't look at it
if soemthing round here goes against your 'Brian Is Perfect' ethos - then learn to live with it

tell me how many letters of complaint have you written to TV stations re: offensive programming? - NONE!!!! - that's how many - hypocrite!!!

ffs - grow up

Freddie is Queen RIP 1991


it's arguable, but:-
Jimmy Page: - if he'd been in queen, then Freddie would not have got his way with so many song arrangements, and with so many of his own songs on albums. Jimmy was Zep's leader
Randy Rhoads: - Then queen wouldn't have got started properly until 1979 - when Ozzy first discovered Randy playing for Quiet Riot

And then that Queen would've only lasted 3 years since Randy was killed a few years later.

that theory doesn't work
as he wouldn't have been on tour with |Ozzy - so he wouldn't have been in that small plane

Corrupt low-life scum? Get some perspective!

Look, the reason people behave funny on these internet forums is obvious - it's because they *can*. We're all guilty of it, just by having nicknames for crying out loud.

Those of you saying Freddie was Queen must have worshipped Freddie's solo albums and not enjoyed any song ever that was not written exclusively by Freddie and performed on piano. And you can go ahead and knock out any songs with a guitar or drum solo (which leaves you with what, Nevermore?). Bohemian Rhapsody wouldn't have worked with just Freddie. Neither would most of the songs he wrote and certainly not the ones he sang beautifully on that weren't written by him. Freddie would not have had much of a career without his bandmates. It's fine if Freddie was your favorite, it's fine if you don't like Paul Rodgers, but saying "Freddie was Queen" is either an impossible stretch or the most mindless reductionist slogan I've heard on any subject, even beating out "Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve".

Most people who are hopelessly devoted to Freddie would choose "The Show Must Go On" as one of their favorites, and we all know it was written by Brian. Think about that.

By Sebastian: "THE SHOW MUST GO ON: That's a though one. The chord sequence came from Roger & John, then the other two sat, decided the theme and wrote the first verse. Then they all contributed bits and pieces including the producer, who suggested some keys, but the entire process was coordinated by Brian."

I'm not sure if you were trying to support my point or negate it, but my point stands. The song would not have happened with just Freddie.
