As a songwriter, Freddie. As an instrumentalist, Roger.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Hands down, Freddie. Talent was grand amongst them all, but without Freddie's talent of persuasion, showmanship, songwriting and natural charisma, I don't believe Queen would have been all it could be... or all it was.

we r forgetting that John Deacon was also a very talented man - brian admitted he was the best rythm guitarist in the bad - when he recorded guitar.

Natural talent: Freddie

Considering by accounts he didn't touch the piano unless he was writing, recording, or on stage.

Freestone says it wasn't uncommon for Fred to go a month or 2 and not touch the piano....however, if he was in a tiff or row, with a lover...look out...he'd be at the piano all night.

Freddie needed chaos to write his best work.

Learned skill: Brian

I think Brian is a players, player...always learning, and very patient.

Freddie was very frantic, no patience.... Brian would take the time to learn something just how he wanted it...with Freddie, it was probably either there, or it wasn't.

Rog and Deaky very talented too.

But really, without Freddie, and Brian....there absolutely could have been no Queen.

It must be Freddie. Not just Freddie the showman, but Freddie the musician, the latter being the one which people tend to overlook.

Surely Freddie.
I agree that without him there would be no Queen, but without Roger, Brian or John it would not be Queen we love...

Not one but all of them! The only band in which all four members had #1 hits. Not even the Beatles can top that, that speaks for itself!

Freddie's voice, stage persona ideas and energy.
Brian's guitar, voice and ideas.
Roger's drumming, voice and ideas.
John's bass and also brill ideas.
As Brian said Queen is better than all of them.

xD
god Queen rock..:)


EXACTLY! Right on sister! Hehehe....

THIS is SO rediculous to ask.....really....would you also ask : wich wheel is the best/most important on a formula 1 Ferrari? Or...wich leg is the most important from Zorro's horse? or runs faster? IT is NOT important. Queen as a whole were better than each member solo....because each member brought something that was dearly missed when not joining the others...the Brian May band, Roger Taylor's Cross, or even Queen + P.R. don't even come close to Queen with Freddie....Freddie died, and Queen died with him....no matter how great the show they pull off in the meantime nowadays...it is not half as good as the shows with Freddie on stage...and none of the songs from the other solo-acts is as good as any of the songs that Freddie wrote....i am very curious what the album with Paul Rodgers is going to be like now....i am adamant it won't even come close to even the worst (if there is one) Queen album with Freddie.

I like how a question about talent turned into an anti-anything without Freddie rant.
