In looking back on the American tour, I'd have to say it's "Tie Your Mother Down" - sure, the advantage for Q+PR is that its the first full song at every show, but the excitement of this song both on stage and in the crowd is more effective than any time Freddie has performed it - im sure anyone that has seen them live recently would agree - any other songs?

No! Freddie could only sing Queen songs and get the crowd going, nobody else can do that like him

I like Paul Rodgers but no way does he sing Queen songs better than Freddie, and I don't get how some people think that he does Dragon Attack better than Freddie, are we listening to the same song?

Absolutely. I thought the Q+PR version of "All Right Now" was waaaay better that the Queen w/ Freddie version. Same thing for "Seagull", "Feel Like Making Love", "Can't Get Enough", "Bad Company" and "Rock'n'Roll Fantasy". Compared to the Q+PR versions, its like the Freddie version of those don't even exist.

Just who here is really qualified to answer this question? I think one would have had to actually attend a Queen concert back in the old days. The DVDs/videos, etc. don't count (sorry younger fans.)

Paul better than Freddie? Freddie better than Paul? They're 2 completely different singers with completely different styles - you can't compare apples to apples when one's an apple and the other's an orange.

As far as I'm concerned, old or new - both are top notch in my book. I'm glad that I was able to experience the thrill of both.

What I like about Paul is that he is singing them his own way. They could have gotten a guy who looks like Freddie and sounds a bit like him and it would just be a substandard imitation. While Paul should stop doing the 'de de de ect.' thing in AOBTD, he really sings it different. Not to mention hes a good singer in his own right.

But I think Freddie doing All Right Now and Take Love would be excellent.

Queen songs were written with Freddies' voice in mind, so they are clearly better with him singing them. Free/Bad Co songs were written with Pauls' voice in mind, so I doubt anyone, even our dear Freddie, could sing them better.
