Let's start with ....

Seaside Rendezvous.

Q+PR is a great rock show and Paul is a powerful rock singer while Freddie was much more theatrical. Go back and listen to your albums and name the songs that Paul Rodgers simply could not pull off. Think about tone, range, and emotion.

They wouldn't play that at a show even if Freddie was still with them. I don't think I've ever seen a setlist with that one included at all.

There were certain songs (such as Seaside Rendezvous) that Freddie could probably knock out without a hitch, but that would have been it for the night. Songs where he had to go so high probably took a toll on his voice, and for him to do a 2 hr show that wouldn't have been possible.

You take my breath away
Melancholy Blues
Cool Cat
pain is so close to pleasure
Scandal
Bijou
Don't try so hard
All gods people
It's a hard life

Quite a lot, actually... Paul is indeed just suitable for the rockier Queen Songs...

I agree with u guys there's alot of Queen songs that paul would not be able to sing. I would have prefered to see Gary Cherone front the band as he can sing the hard rock songs aswell as softer ballad type songs, plus he has a strong stage presence, example (Freddie tribute Concert)

i just can't believe they never asked him to do it, or even George Michael would have been great to see aswell, if they tour Australia i'll still go because i love Queen.

Gary Cherone? After his flame-out with Van Halen, that would have been a sheer disaster...

Have you not heard ANYTHING that Q+PR has recorded for the show? I find it very difficult to believe that they could have chosen a BETTER singer. Paul is as perfect of a fit as can be.

Well, I personally feel he should leave BoRhap well alone, because he is not Freddie. But I am not keen on his H2F or Ga Ga, I also don't think he could sing KQ or DOTL.


This can't end well.

Well Fred could barely sing KQ live by '84.

oh dear, seems we've started a controversial topic here lol. general consensus seems to be that he suits more rocky songs. but i like it that way. id agree with the people who mention you Take My Breath Away. Awesome song, couldn't imagine anyone other than Freddie singing it really. :D

id just like to say to those who slate Paul Rodgers' vocal range you should take a listen to a few tracks from his back catalogue styles that include soft ballads,soul,motown,and even a jazzy style collaberation with jools holland and his r&bo
Paul Rodgers(along with Freddie)is one of the greatest vocalists of all time.
basically those who slate him should be kissing his ass for giving them a chance to see precious queen live once more

This is pathetic.

If you don't like Paul, then great. Put on a Queen album, and mind your own business. Have you all nothing better to do with your time?
