If Paul Rodgers goes back to playing in front of 700 people because he ego wont allow him to succeed with second billing,whats next for us?Will Bri and Roj go to plan B and grab another singer and continue now that they have ignited such a stir?I sure hope so as i will never tire of hearing what they do but also i enjoy the debate and banter with other fans.Your thoughts?

No. It's over. Another singer would appear desperate....and I dont think they are desperate. I think they just wanted to go out and play and have fun. Getting a new singer and being bashed all over again wouldnt be worth it to them.

I think this US tour will be sobering to them. They are going to have trouble selling a lot of tickets. Im not saying they wont sell any....but it wont be HUGE....and these guys are used to being HUGE.

Not being huge...and being old....= its over.

If the Queen machine even *bothers* to seriously promote the tour, I think it would do well.

y'know... honestly... i havent seen Q+PR live... ive just listened to the cd... and.... well... my favorite songs are the ones that brian and roger sing... it just feels more like queen to me... now... im not saying that if Q+PR came to texas i would come... because id be there... but.. the brian and roger songs sounded best to me... and i hope that they continue... even if its just the 2 of them... they dont need a "new singer" i think they sound fine... and i think that all the fans will be understanding that it's a different show... maybe not as flashy... but.. they still have damn fine voices... better than paul's... in my opinion... and i like paul... -josh

Good, thats what they get for adding that asswipe to sing Freddies songs and stand in his place, (they replaced him!) Also for using the Queen name.
Every day, they seem to be losing fans, i knew it. Maybe if they haven't added that asswipe and went under another name, they would still be huge. But no. Bad move Brian and Roger. Everyone knows that Queen died in 1991, and theres no way that they can bring Queen back, Never.
They are Roger and Brian, not Queen, and have been ever since Freddies death, only it took them 14 years to realize that they aren't Queen.

Maybe theres a little bit of hope for their future, if they change the name to Smile or something else. (and kick that shit out)
Paul is shit, was and will always be.

RIP Freddie + Queen.


Ok Paul is not shit. Your just mad because he's singing Freddie's songs.

It ain't over boys and girls, he will be back to finish the work on a studio album, yes I said finish!!

Whilst I suspect they will take a break after the USA tour, there will be more to come, you can bet your life on it.

Work is in progress.

And come the time they go their seperate ways, why not have someone else, what's the problem with that, if they like playing together and people want to see them, hell I'd by a ticket, I love the songs,

But wait isn't that what being a fan is all about, the songs?

I like the originals and I like it when others do interesting things with them, I still have the originals so why worry, if it takes it to a new level, great.

Just think if nobody had ever tried to do anything different with the first versions of our respective countries dishes, what a boring world we would live in.

But I guess you always get ludites!

i think queen and u2 should do a world tour together i think that would be class and would rule the world of music. i think paul should not leave because i think he can do justice for freddie but if not they can also try robbie. as for justin hawkeens from the darkness f**k him he is a tool.

They don't need to promote it. Practically all shows were sold out.



They are? I hope they are. Where did you get that info?

I wasn't going to say anything, but I guess I'll break the news here first. When Paul leaves, I will be the new lead singer of Queen.

Roger is going to become the new pillsbury dough boy

Brian will become a mime

john will briefly crawl out from under his rock to buy an anorak (as he is fashionable that way)

freddie will be dead

I can't believe that Brian and Roger forget that both of them can sing. If they had become the lead singers it still would be pure Queen. I think that they are the most worthy people of singing Freddie songs.

i didn't see them live either(well they didn't come to Greece)but i watched the dvd and i agree that the best moments of the concert are when brian and roger sing.Even at the song that Paul sings the best moments are when Roger does the "backing" vocals.They should be the lead singers now.About the name what difference would it make if they called it Smile or something else?It would still be them playing Queen songs.The don't think this is the real Queen but it is very close and they used the name for commersial reasons.


PS:Justin Hawkins isn't just a tool and i'm sure he could sing Freddie's songs much better than Paul and he could even sing songs like Seven seas of rhye or killer queen etc

I dont want just Bri and Roj singing.we need a pro lead man.Roger gets winded coming to front stage from behind the kit and Bri can only sing a few numbers.The reason we all(or most us)came to love Queen was a wonderful lead singer.Here is a name i never here mentioned who is available.Steve Perry from Journey.they are touring with some stiff after perry refused to continue with them.He still has range and could do better with the higher key songs then most could.Thoughts?

Before the bashing starts, that's not a bad thought. I'd be curious to hear it.
