Everybody, read the comments below the posting in the link. I cannot believe what people say about Brian May. Fuck them, talking about our boy like that.

Mostly possitive, remember it's a metal site. And not everybody in the world loves queen like the people do on a messageboard like this.

Apart from that, most complaints in this link are about ticket prices. And that's a fair complaint, since 200 dollar is way too much money for a concert. People not earning that much aren't able to see them at all. I don't feel sorry (at least less) for the people who are not able to see them 8 or 9 times. For me it's just the fact that people have been really looking forward to this and can not go because they have to support a family as well.

Let me entertain you wrote:

BAH! Screw the lot of them! If they don't know the true extent of Queen and Brian May's talents their not worth worrying over!
But I do appriciate that not every one likes Queen but on a thread like that... about Queen and Brian May... they could at least bugger off and keep their opinion to themselves...
Silly people... So as I said.. forget 'em.

If you can't beat 'em... dont join them though... ew.

and I agree about the ticket prices! $200! woah! And I though £50 was a lot of money.. but that might just be because I'm poor...
Ha ha ha!


Well, most people are very positive about queen on this site, just search for Queen and view the threads. In the case of the Q+PR tour they are on average more possitive then the people over here. In this particular topic they are bashing high ticket prices and the royal family. Nobody claims that Brian is a crappy guitarist.

I reckon their problem is they have all been listning to Slipknot and Tool for too long that their eardrums have shattered and now no longer have the mental capacity to even phathom what good music really is. Brian May deserves his award, I mean, did anyone read that article where he was helping cancer paitents? Have you ever seen that scary fella with the white eyes do that??? But that's just my oppionion, no offense meant to anyone who likes that screamy kind of 'music'.

haha. I dont like that kinda stuff... cant stand it actually. And he does deserve the award. And i dont think people should have been bashing the royal family like that, they're mearly a nomial part of British culture, a symbol of britian, they really dont have that much political control. And i agree, Brian May is sooooo AWESOME!!! CONGRATS BRI!

Tool happens to be one of the best 5 bands of the latest 20 years in my opinion. I think it's just too complex for you. If you don't like difficult rhytms, then don't listen to Tool. These guys are BRILLIANT. They drummer is one of the best around these days.
They don't care for any kind of publicity, just do what they think is right, and don't compromise. They still play small clubs, because they like it better. And they don't charge fans 200 dollars to see their show.

Slipknot is a complete different story though.
