I'm assuming here that Brian, Roger and Paul will use Danny Miranda as the bassist on the new album. But who would you prefer? Here's my shortlist:
John Deacon (obviously)
Bruce Foxton (of The Jam)
The Mad Bass Player Out Of The Stranglers (of The Stranglers)
Roddy Murray (of The Dancing Mice)
What does everyone else think?


This can't end well.

I have no problem with Danny. He did a superb job on the tour, and is a great fit for the band.

Getting John back would be great.
Danny is good, but I think I prefer Roger...

I know this may be a stupid question, but when John "retired", did he also retire from doing any thing else with Bri and Rog. I quess my question is, what is the chance that John could record a album then go back to planting flowers.

So you assume there will be a NEW ALBUM??

I always thought that Thee Cross' P. Noone was a great bass player.

:-D

I agree. I've always loved them, but I was very disappointed when I listened to the album

I think if a guest vocalist is ruled out, Mr Deacon may come back into the fold....

I doubt John will be involved.

Sorry to say it, but i don't see it happening. Now i;m usually the one who says there is always a chance...but not this time.

John will stay away and get on with the life he has now.

well, i think Brian and Roger should ask John if he want to do it. But not sending a letter like they did about the tour. they should go to his house, have a nice conversation explaining the project. doing an album could be less "dangerous" for a quiter guy as john is. I'm sure that back in 1997 when Roger lobbied on Brian to record "No-One but You" as Queen they didn't sent a letter to John.. they talked directly with him. i e-mail brian a month or so ago asking if John would be called for the album..he haven't replied. i think we should all send e-mails to him to ask for John in the studio album.

If John refuse to join Brian and Roger are pretty much competent to do the job.
