on 23rd November i went to see the Queen Tribute Band "Ga Ga" at the floral pavillion and they were excellent, a lot better than the other one i saw last year. There were only 3 guys and didn't use exactly the same instruments, they didn't dress up as them but they sounded a lot like them and were talented.
In my opinion they are the best Queen tribute band out there!

Yes I saw them last year. They did a corking version of Breakthru which at least partly compensated for Queen never performing it live. The singer is a great guitar player, a skill he bluesily exhibits on CLTCL, which was another highlight.

Can you be in a tribute to 4 guys with only 3? I thought they kind of had to appear the same. Maybe the lead singer looks like a cross between Freddie and Brian? That'd be interesting, and perhaps one of the most hideous sights ever seen on Earth.


Thank you, God bless you, sweet dreams you lot of tarts, Good-bye!

The frontman was on Lead Vocals and Lead Guitar, he was fabukous and had Brian's sound even by using a Strat and a Vox Valvetronix

None of them look like Queen. Its just a group of people playing Queen music. They put their own twist on it too which is nice, they just don't pelt out a Wembley '86 set.

The first time I saw them was the best, the energy was great and they did an amazing version of Another Bites The Dust with a massive guitar solo in the middle. Brilliant.
