I'm not sure if it has been discussed (looked but can't find it), but it is pretty obvious that there are a lot of Queen fans who dislike the fact that Paul Rodgers is now singing all our favourite Queen songs. Can anyone tell me what the Free/Bad Co. fans think of Brian and Roger playing the guitars and drums to Paul Rogders songs? Are they as annoyed as a lot of you seem to be or are they in favour of it all?

There are a handful of idiots on this site that do nothing but bitch and complain about Paul Rodgers...

To my mind, as well as most folks here, Paul was the best possible singer that Brian and Roger could have picked to sing these songs.

The fact that we also get to hear the Free/Bad Co. hits as well is just icing on the cake.

I enjoy the Bad Co. songs much more with Queen than I ever did live with Bad Co. No comparison, really. Roger is a much better drummer, and Brian is a much better guitarist.

I actually prefer the Free/BC songs on Return of the Champions.

Queen + PR makes a kickass Rock and roll band that can rock any arena.

But hearing PR do Queen songs makes me miss Freddie.

I've gotta agree with Paul as the lead singer, I mean, they could have done a hell of a lot worse.
I just thought it would be funny if the Paul Rodgers fans were bitching about Queen.

Good news as well, before the Q+PR match-up was announced, my friend said she would never forgive Queen if they let someone else take the helm. The other day I lent her my Q+PR CD and she loves it!!! Infact, she even said she was going to buy it. Converted ;)

I remain convinced that those here who piss and moan are doing it just for effect...

After a listen to the CD, or a viewing of the DVD, you cannot help but like it. They blow the vast majority of bands today off of the stage...
