I don't think that everyone will EVER agree with Queen + Paul Rodgers so it's useless to try and end the discussion.

Personally, I decided long ago that I would enjoy Q+PR as much as I could because I can't go through life being negative all the time. (Plus the music isn't half bad)

Queen as we know and love them are over. We have their music and memory with us. Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon were Queen and always will be remebered for that.

Brian and Roger kind of 'ended' Queen with 'Made in Heaven' and the farewell single to Freddie, 'No-one But You'. So that was kind of goodbye to Queen.

Now BRIAN and ROGER have returned. They should be entitled to using the Queen name for their return. And Paul Rodgers, ok he might not be as good as Freddie, evidently, but he is doing a good job.

If people were not lucky enough to see Queen as they were then now at least they get a chance now. So everyone shouldn't be slating them for doing what they love and what a lot of people appreciate.

Other bands get another frontman or band member when someone has passed away or left so why not Queen? They are keeping Queen's music alive and that's the main thing. They of course can not do that with Freddie so just learn to live with it.






There is no right or wrong here. Different opinions on the subject. Brian and Roger can and will do as they please and see fit. Either you like it or not. If not, don't go to the Q+PR gig.
I'm going. Will it be a great rock conert? Yes.
Queen? Nope.

Boring same old arguments...........Brian and Roger have tarnished the name Queen this will stick forever. I just hope Freddie forgives them one day and they should apologise to Queen fans RIGHT NOW for this mess

Queen RIP 1991

Some time ago many people (including myself) stopped trying to bring some sense to some of the more negative posters in here. You could argue all day but in the end they still think Brian and Roger are trashing Queen's legacy by using the name. Even worse, some of them think that Brian and Roger DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT to use the name.

You can say it IS NOT Queen but, then again, the ticket says it IS Queen. No need to argue more about this. The best thing is to just focus on the music. I think most of us rational people are able to enjoy this new venture music-wise, without thinking it's sacrilege. Now I'm a bit more tolerant and I can deal with people saying "It's a good rock concert, but it's not Queen". Ok, it is whatever you want it to be as long as you enjoy it. :)

The first part of this post is aimed at the extremist kind of fan who would burn his entire collection after Brian and Roger's sacrilege and is willing to spam this and other boards with the same "RIP QUEEN 1991" crap, and actually thinking many people will make up their minds and realize that they are doing wrong.

Good luck with that, meanwhile I'll be in San Diego "not seeing Queen" and having the time of my life yet again :).

See ya,

Wiley

I'm not trying to make sense of them, I'm just real annoyed of the shit. Enough becomes enough real quick.

Cheers Winter's Tale...I agree with you, but sadly enough, not everyone shares our opinions...and everyone is allowed to express their viewpoint...but then you get people like BPP who just take it to another level and make themselves look like a jerk. Hey...BPP, not ragging on ya', just observing the truth...rock on Queen+PR. No, it will never be Queen as it once was...but this is the best that we can hope for...what did you think...they were going to do a tour with George Michael?? Yeah...ok...picture him trying to sing 'Tie Your Mother Down' or 'Fat Bottomed Girls'...that's a riot!! Peace out!!

When Rob Halford left Judas Priest and was replaced by Tim "Ripper" Owens, they went to crap and their popularity waned. Once Rob Halford came back, they made their best album since Painkiller with Angel of Retribution. Iron Maiden went to Hell when Bruce Dickinson left with Blaze Bayley. Once Bruce plus Adrian Smith returned, Maiden returned to greatness with Brave New World.
Styx on the other hand when Dennis DeYoung got fired, they went to crap. Genesis after Phil Collins left faded away.

They can't get George Michael now anyways. He will be serving time in Her Majesty's penal house.
