Does anyone think Brian May and Roger Taylor will or should retire once touring with Paul Rogers finishes?

I think the cherry has nearly gone, in my opinion.

Ofcourse they'll retire when the finish touring with Paul. But that's gonna be ages away. They'll finish this tour, do a new album, and go back out. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Yeah like in Freddies case, he had to stop touring because of his health but that didnt stop him from making music did it?

Brian May and Roger Taylor will retire when they are good and ready! If that old codger Sir Mick Jagger (LOL!) can still fling his bones on stage and people still want to see him along with Keith "ready for dead" Richards, why the hell not keep on going.

I'm just as old as Roger and I plan to keep on writing until "I bloody well die" (to quote a rather famous singer!)

Cheers,
David

Retire? Why? If they worked in a factory for 30 years then I would say hell yeah! But they're musicians who love what they do. It's not a case of making money. They've made their money a long time ago and royalties keep coming in. They do what they do because it comes from the heart and not from their pockets. Good luck Brian and Roger. You made a splash over here last weekend and from what I've been reading and hearing you guys did it with style, grace and you incorporated Freddie into the show that people are raving about. Good for you guys!

If they had wanted to retire... don't you think they would have done that after Freddie's death??

They enjoy doing this... and so do we!!

And indeed... speaking with Freddie:
I think they'll stay together and do this "untill we fucking die!"

And I hope they will be able to... and that they will....

Because:

QUEEN STILL ROCKS!!!

no matter what age they are ;)

No fucking way. I would rather listen to 50% QUEEN live than no Queen. Those fuckers should play till they drop fucking dead. I mean let's face it. Brian's guitar works miracle's: in the Hammer to Fall, Tear it Up, Flash live performace is a divine experiance. I could listen to it forever. Add Roger on top of that and you have a nuclear blast. Why fucking retire. What's your problem?

No Way

If Brian and Roger can play to packed audiences after nearly 20 years, AND they still enjoy it why retire ?

It is like any of us stopping our hobbies.
