Well you can think that if you want, I disagree and don't see him like that but it's all opinion at the end of the day.



I don't believe Roger is ever a yes man ... but Roger gets enjoyment out of playing in the cover band. Roger might even think that Adam is a "C-lebrity", but does not care because because Roger gets the big rock performance audience adrenaline fix again. ...

Otherwise, unfortunately I agree and believe that Brian is doing this C-lebrity thing to inflate his ego and convince himself of his "indispensible-ness".

I don’t get all of this hatred for Brian and Roger. Do you guys blame them for Freddie’s death, too?

Should they have committed suicide so they could all be dead?

:-O
Yikes. No one has ever blamed Brian and or Roger for Freddie's passing. Or illness. And no one has ever said they should have committed suicide. I really wish you would not say or not imply thngs like this sweetcaroline. Brian came close to suicide and he has been depressed before, but no one has ever stated on QZ and QOL that they blame them for Freddie passing, illness and said they should have committed suicide. Do you really think so little of Queen fans?

And you're in the best position to pass that judgment. I thought the OP was full of it

People who have that much money don't worry about the where the next batch is coming from unless they are business people. Roger and Brian have said time and time again that they don't need any more money, but they are having fun, so why not do it?? I don't think money is ever the motivating factor for those two. Brian seems like a great guy with diverse interests, a tremendous intellect and not someone to harbor grudges and be the top dog. And speaking of dogs, animal lovers are usually very nice people, more so than the average individual.

I am sure that it did and does rankle when so much praise is heaped on Freddie. I saw a docu somewhere when either Brian or Roger were saying when they all wrote together, Freddie always tried to get the credit. I could see that happening and it would have been upsetting. I think Brian is every bit as amazing as Freddie was and personally, I like the songs he wrote better. I spent a few hours looking at all of them and his touch me more. There were also a lot written by more than one of them. Freddie only has the huge star persona now that he has passed on. It is amazing how that often happens. Freddie was not this highly regarded prior to his death. Dying seems to gild that star quite a bit more. That is not just about him, as it often happens. Something to do with don't speak ill of the dead and no, I am not saying Freddie doesn't deserve the accolades, but often people grow into larger than life figures.

I don't think Brian is trying to rewrite history, but rather make more history with the time he has left. To me that is a tremendous goal, rather than being the wanker who sits home on his keyboard and complains about everything in the world. Brain still makes a difference!

Again you fucking asshole try to diss Freddie. Freddie tried to get the songwriting credits when they all wrote together? Please post a link to that interview.
Freddie was only a megastar after he died?? What the heck are you smoking????? Freddie was a legend while he was alive. He may have become a bigger legend now I give you that but you sound like he was Mr Average and now he is dead he has become a star. Fucking drivel.

YOu never know how much money anyone needs. LOTS of mega stars went broke after the stock exchange crashed. If you look at the queen productions statements which are available online you will be surprised how lil they made in the 90's until mid 2000's before they started touring. But you will be too dumb to read a financial statement I assume. They have huge houses and personell and ex-wives to pay. The GNR Reunion only took place because Slash had a divorce ahead.

Brian surely is trying to rewrite history - just watch the movie. He is the saint while Freddie is the drugged up freak with no friend. I never liked Brian that much. And his songs are pretty weak compared to Freddies

We get it now that you hate Freddie no need to post more clueless drivel

Oh boy, you are nuts. They could have done such a hatchet job on Freddie and his lifestyle, but they didn't go there. They didn't want to sully Freddie's image and I have heard interviews from his former boyfriends and friends about his lifestyle that would certainly have been quite salacious. I don't think the other guys were nearly that hedonistic.

As far as being a legend, they were getting less than stellar reviews and the tabloids were on Freddie about being a homosexual and No, I don't think his star was shining too brightly back then at all. Icy is always mentioning the tabloids and how they treated poor Freddie back in the day, so I don't think it was awfully complimentary. You can't rewrite history just to suit yourself.

I have no idea where I heard that, but it was part of something I saw on TV about Queen and either Roger or Brian said it. You will have to find it yourself, but I don't write things that aren't true, as there is no reason to. I heard what I heard.

I told you Brian is making new history. You can't rewrite it and smart people move on and don't try to relive past glory days. As far as understanding finances, you would be surprised. The person of no intellect is you because you can't keep a civil tongue in your mouth. Once again you say nasty stuff to me and call me names and then you just expect me and others to ignore that. I wish I could ignore a base twat like you. I don't understand people like yourself that are just so filled with hate and don't seem to have a kind bone in their body. It must be exhausting to be like that. Doesn't sound like you ever enjoy a thing. I feel really sorry for you.

Brian is a wonderful human being, not an egomaniac:

Freddie never tried taking credit for songs he didn't write...in fact there are songs in which he had a major hand in shaping the final product but he never took credit for them..., For eg, 'its a kind of magic', ' One Vision' , etc. one thing that Brian, Roger and John have repeatedly talked about it is how generous he was and how he never had a big ego, he was in fact, the peacemaker, the glue that held them together

Brian May: Vibrant Family Man and Political Savior

...

www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3026961/JANE-FRYER-Sex-Drugs-No-thanks-Meet-rock-god-wants-kick-selfish-corrupt-politics-replace-decent-people.html?fbclid=IwAR1IqBrA7u5pxAU0oCf25XJ6P23JA9oknrxj7Ws_PA7ibDFNKZkk5xSYJhc

Despite his workload, Brian could easily pass for 50. His hands are slim and lithe. His teeth are great. His face is soft and smooth. ‘It’s all the plastic surgery,’ he jokes. ‘Not really. I think it’s cold showers — I’m a massive advocate — and lack of sleep, of course.’

...

He was always clean-living. While Freddie Mercury was snorting cocaine off silver trays strapped to the heads of hermaphrodite dwarves, Brian said a polite ‘no thank you’. ‘Most people around me were trying everything but I never took drugs, not even cannabis. It became a sort of experiment on myself, to be the control rat.

‘I never minded anyone else doing it, but I knew that everything I was experiencing was real. I was high on music. And I never smoked, either. But I do love vodka.’

...

Right now, though, he’s explaining — very politely, and without raising his voice, because as well as being the most beautifully spoken rock legend in the world, he’s also the politest — just how much he loathes David Cameron.

‘I am very, VERY much not a fan.’

They met once, briefly, in the corridors of Parliament, when Brian was campaigning against badger culling.

‘He’s very affable. Very charming. He stopped and said: “Oh, hi Brian, don’t worry about the badgers, they’ll be fine.”

‘Fine?’ He flicks the magnificent grey Louis XIV mane back over his shoulders in dignified disgust. ‘That’s a very telling remark. It was very pleasant on the face of it, but very condescending.’

Brian has a lot to say about Cameron.

‘To me, he’s a pillar of everything wrong: privilege, elitist Eton clique, no empathy. He has taken Britain back to something close to feudalism. That’s the sort of thing we want to change.’

‘We’ are Brian and his colleagues at Common Decency, the political revolution he launched last month with the help of a vast billboard in South London, emblazoned with the words: ‘You have one voice — one vote — use it!’

...

He does, though, have a massive fortune and homes in Surrey and London. So how does this sit with his hatred of privilege and elitism?

‘It’s not a question of how much money you’ve got and how many houses,’ he insists. ‘It’s that certain people are unfairly rich and powerful and never worked for it. We should all have equal opportunities.’

...

But did Brian, at the last general election, do as he is now urging everyone else to do, and vote?

‘No! Oh dear. I was so busy telling everyone else to vote that I forgot myself. It’s terrible.’

He claims his oversight is what motivated him this time.

‘I’m not an apathetic man. I work night and day to change the world. But I knew I was in a safe seat [Kensington and Chelsea, which has always had a Tory MP] and I forgot. This time I will vote but I haven’t decided, yet, who for.’

Suddenly he looks a bit tired.

‘Some people think I’m very naive and maybe I am. How can I change the world in 40 days?’

But he also sees this as his responsibility.

‘I’m no Mother Teresa, but I try to make the world a better place.

‘Perhaps this will be my work for the rest of my life. Though I’m hoping I can relax a bit after the election and spend more time with Anita, my kids and grandchildren.’

Brian May is a good, kind, clever man who, besides selling 200 million records, has dedicated much of his life to doing good, kind things.

OP is right!
Brian used to be a friendly guy, but is now a grumpy, greedy, money grabbing machine who thinks he’s a wise man.
Utterly annoying and boring guy with simplistic, paternalistic views.

Most of you Queen "fans" on this forum are crazy! You are so negative. And the way you eviscerate Brian and Roger along with Adam is so sad. Brian and Roger are having the time of their lives (again) when they could be sitting at home counting their already large sums of money. But nothing wrong with making more! And Queen music being played again by Brian and Roger and sung by Adam is being enjoyed a LOT by people filling these venue. So you can all sit in your rooms on your computer and complain and insult all you like. Guess who's getting the last laugh?

Why all the hate only for Brian though? Roger is no yes man and probably had equal say in everything the band has done in recent years

You obviously don't know Roger or at least have never been involved with him on a professional level. . . .

Go and invent some other shit as that's all you do
