I totally agree. The recordings with R.Williams is awful, and I don't understand how he can back all these pseudo singers who want to sing Queen.

Also would we have considered that McCartney touring with Ringo Star was the Beatles? Pink Floyd without Roger Waters wasn't PF. Queen without Freddie is even more than the Beatles without Lennon. It should have stopped or they should have formed a new band.

They are ruining the legacy. fortunately it remains in records.

Yeah, it really is too bad that the legacy is being ruined. I'm also shocked to find that the tour is going to continue well into 2006! At this point, I say that it is time to give it up. If Brian and Roger and Paul Rodgers wanted to do a couple of shows, that would be one thing. But this is getting to be tiresome. I would have thought that the poor sales of Return of the Champions would have been enough to discourage them, but I guess not.

That sucks if it's true...especially since The Darkness have made it out to look like their such buddies even after Queen collaborated with Five. I sort of wonder whether it's a ploy to get publicity for the new album.

Think this'll ever appear on Brian's soapbox? Somehow I doubt it...

I think this story is a old one, but I do agree with what Justin Hawkins said.

Terrific, specialy coming from a bloke who's band is a copy-cat of stuff recorded some 30-odd years ago...

(though I must admit that I agree too).

Justin is a very open fella, and is always talking about the things he doesnt like. You say he does it for publicity - but how many famous people dont say things for publicity? Look at Bono and all his charity work for instance.

Anyway, chances are, Justin said it in a more loose comical way rather than the way the story built around it, probably by The Sun, suggests. I'd take it with a pinch of salt.

But I do agree though, sort of.

Is there anything Brian, Roger or John can do that ruins Queen legacy?
Wake up, boys and girls, not even those collaborations has made you deslike Queen legacy, so what`s this all about?

Take care

Darling...you're so right.... and by the way Brian ever talked about this before none of this things where ideas of him .... but proposed to him.... and neither Brian, Roger, John didn't protest against it.... The only protest you got was johns about the Robbie William co-operation....

Here in North America (Canada) the only "Queen" we get is the real thing. We've never had that crap by 5ive, Electric Six, etc forced on us to taint the legacy. I love Brian May, but Hawkins is entitled to his opinion and maybe I'd feel the same way if I had to listen to one "flavour of the month" band after another butcher Queen songs with the band's approval.
