I don't understand why so many people are so upset with Q+PR. Look, I know it's not Freddie, and the whole name issue has been beaten to death, but relax and enjoy a great show, and possibly a great new album. If the guys who actually were in the band can live with it, how come so many fans can't. And not to say Freddie wasn't the biggest reason why Queen made it, I don't know how you can call yourself a real fan by saying he was the only reason Queen made it. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and I'm sure there are hardcore fans from the beginning who might not like it, fine, but to say that it's not Queen, Freddie was everything, that is the type of response from someone who has maybe heard just the Greatest Hits album. For most of us, who know every aspect of Queen's history, I just can't believe it. Anyway, I was at the NJ show, will go to the NY one, and I thought it rocked.

Freddie WAS Queen. No Freddie NO Queen or Queen + PR.

I've watched a couple of segments from Return Of The Champions and it's truly dreadful, embarassing and should not be on sale.

This is heartbreaking for most REAL Queen fans who just want to remember them with Freddie.

Paul Rodgers is at best very average if not poor singer who has been involved with a couple of minor bands.

It's just all very sad and upsetting to see the could name of Queen destroyed whilst 2 former members go on an ego trip trying to relive past glories.

Heartbreaking?

WE take it as a Brian / Roger solo gig, which they did not bring across the pond for us to witness in the late '90s, as they had done in the UK and Europe and Japan.

We're grateful to have the chance to see the boys in big arenas, playing to big cheering crowds, and not the small venues such as Hollywood or Las Vegas.

Can Paul do EVERYTHING????? Nope, and we're not stupid enough to think so. Are we grateful that we get to see him and the boys play, have fun, and have fun watching them?

FUCKING 'EH WE ARE.

All you do is show your small-mindedness. Sorry for showing mine and finally replying after all this time.

We'll be enjoying a couple of more shows in a few weeks. Maybe you are jealous of those of us who will enjoy going back in time for a couple of hours on those nights. A pity.

Is more chaos needed???
Everyone has their opinion, but posting the opinion several times as a topic and annoying others is going too far.. like BBP.
We respect your views but constantly parading around the forum causing havoc and anguish to others is pointless. I think members like BBP have made themselves VERY clear about this and don't need to continuously post about it, especially when using inappropriate language and attitude. Wanting to argue about whether Paul Rodgers is crap or not is childish and pathetic!
In conclusion, You either like Queen with Paul rodgers or you don't. We all think differently.
No need to get angry over it. :D

I'm quoting Freddie: "Not all this crap again..."

I don't understand why so many people are so obsessed with making THIS SPECIFIC POINT. Look, I know the whole name issue has been beaten to death, so relax and try and post something original that doesn't just RESTART THE WHOLE FUCKING ARGUMENT.

I dont think your being a REAL Queen fan if you dont like Queen+PR. REAL Queen fans accept the fact that Roger and Brian are not going to fucking sit back in a chair all day and go " oh no,what are we going to do without Freddie"

Freddie WAS NOT Queen. He was big part of Queen, irreplaceable part of Queen, but he was not Queen!
And yes ROTC is bad but if you don't like don't listen to it, don't think about it, just forget it and listen every(real) queen's cd ad warch every queen's dvd

Just because Freddie (RIP) is no longer alive does not mean that Roger and Brian have to stop using the Queen name. They were the two original founders of the band.. Freddie was the person who came up with the name Queen... but they all put their time and effort into making Queen the best band.. Roger and Brian deciding to start touring again is the right thing to do... They honor Freddie during the shows with pictures on the screen. It is a great memoriam of Freddie!!

SORRY didn't mean TO start a TOPIC that you don't LIKE. Obviously this is INTERESTING to some people otherwise NOONE would write BACK.

You don't get it, do you? There's nothing new in all these responses that you use to validate yourself, it's just the same tired old argument. It's not whether I like it or not, it's whether anything is being added by either side.

And if you think that only the interesting threads get responses then you're a complete idiot....

Exactly... how would you all feel if Freddie and John was the only remaining people left?

Totally agree.
This whole website is becoming a massive whirlwind of pointless argument! I think any topic that causes such controversy and havoc should be deleted to prevent anything like this from happening! The End.

If Brian or Roger would have died and Freddie & John would be touring as 'Queen'... I would lose a lot of respect and love for both of them... as I do now for Brian and Roger...

I can understand they have to go on and I am happy they are having sucha gala time, but to call themselves Queen is wrong...

I mean even if John had died and the other three would have been touring, they should not tour as Queen because all of them in some contributed to make QUEEN!

Posting topics regarding those who despise Q+P are just as bad, if not worse, than the ignorant topics about Rogers being a gimp.
Sure, I agree with the statement; I don't get why...blah blah lah dee dah. I really do.
But what point is there in posting it?
It's been posted several times before; you're not the only "clear and level-headed voice of reason" amidst the anger of weird fans.
*sigh* It just creates the likes of BPP and other odd balls to spur up more drama than we really need, or care about.
Cheers
