She thinks why Queen + Paul Rodgers wasn't there, not Queen with Freddie.

Queen + Paul Rodgers were supposed to play Live 8 via satellitle from The Greatest City On Earth on July 2nd, but something went wtong with it. So, to compromise, Chris Evans sang Radio Ga Ga at the Edinburgh Live 8 on July 6th. It was awful.


This can't end well.

because Bob geldof was smart enough to know that if he invited brian and roger he would have had to invite paul rodgers as well... in other words: a big stain on the history of these concerts


but you don't give me comfort and a man's gotta get it somewhere -brian may

i'll give you comfort brian XD

Bila je neka fora da su imali koncert u portugalu ili nekaj takvog u isto vrijeme kad je bio Live 8. A ima i još jedna prica da ih Geldof nije htio na koncertu. Ne znam zakaj

read the quotes from Brian and Roger on the news section.....

Twenty-odd years down the road from supplying the sporting events of the world with the boom-boom-thwack that kicks off "We Will Rock You," Roger Taylor is keenly aware that, for many, the thought of Queen on the road in the post-Freddie Mercury era

And this is what he'd like to tell those people.

"Get a life."

No, really.

Taylor laughs, then adds, "And that's what Freddie would have said as well. I mean, the world moves on. We miss him. Always did. But we all own our songs. And the fact is that Brian and I are still able to go out and do it.

"In a way, it's a little insulting. Great as Freddie was, the band was a true democracy. The fact that he was the visual focus and certainly, in the first 10 years, the most prolific writer, is not denied. But it was a four-man band. We've got the memories. They were great. But this is the best we could have hoped to have done and it's happened as a serendipity."

I think Freddie would've agreed to keep the legend of QUEEN going, if it's Paul Rodgers or another singer, keep the Queen legend going, Freddie is not with us no more but i'm sure he's looking down from Heaven and enjoying keeping the Queen music going............and yes i NO that 2 out of 4 in a group is'nt right, but i have to agree with the concert and muscial keeping the Queen legend alive! Nothing wrong with that..........

just my 2 cents.........

Long live QUEEN.....

-Oh really? Why are they out touring with Paul Rodgers, and going to various events and such?

how can two members be QUEEN?

Well considering Queen was divided into four parts (Freddie, Brian, Roger, John)(4/4) and Freddie is dead making that have 3 parts (3/3), and since John has retired there is 2 parts active (2/2). They are Queen.

How about the people who support the collaboration with Paul Rodgers? Brian and Roger do, (2/4) John Deacon does, (3/4). Majority rules man. GIT WIDDIT!!! :-P

remember Freddie Mercury? oh i forgot you fools prefer Paul Rodgers over Freddie.

-Freddie was a great frontman. He could sing amazingly, he could control a crowd better than almost anyone, and he had quite a personality both on and off the stage. We definitly miss Freddie. But most have moved on. Most accept the tour and the collaboration with Paul Rodgers. I mean, come on, it's been 15 years for god's sake! Most people have moved on after the death of a family member by this long.

QUEEN R.I.P. 1971-1991"

-Most websites and other information sources list Queen's life span as 1971-____. If Queen's not still around, who's playing guitar at 8:00 tonight? Who's playing drums?

brian and roger are not QUEEN they are just greedy money pigs who replaced Freddie Mercury with Paul Rodgers.

-Most of the money from the tickets most likely goes to paying for the massive stage, renting the venues, management, etc.


All I can say is you just love Freddie. You don't care about anyone else in the band. You don't say a whole bunch of crap about Danny in the place of John do you? That goes for the Poodle too. Queen has moved on, the WORLD has moved on. I suggest you do too.

It doesn't bother me much that you don't support the tour, it bothers me that you are constantly bugging people about it, insulting people for supporting the tour, and spamming the boards too (also directed at BPP). If you feel I'm a hypocrit for saying that about the insults, I called you a dumbass because you hijack topics, spam the boards, and are an overall jackass.

Do us all a favor, and take a mature standpoint while expressing your opinion.
