True Queen fans share positive info on their favorite band and support their old and new songs,concerts, and anything else related to Queen.It makes me sick to see some people who claim to like or love Queen condemn them for their beliefs,choices that tey made for their careers or lives.
I personally love Queen. Their music was and is still great, loads of talent, good looking and very smart.Freddie's wonderful vocal range, all their awesome writing and musical abilites,Paul's great voice, Brian's totally awesome guitar playing [he makes aguitar sing], and all their other amazing talent.

Very nicely said;)
I agree- Brian DOES make a guitar sing! He's truly amazing!;)

I'm a Queen fan, sure. Definitely not one of those people who's only heard Greatest Hit albums. But my definition of Queen is something that includes Freddie Mercury - Queen died when Freddie Mercury did. Made in Heaven was their last album. Anything else after that is not Queen, it's merely 75% or even 50% Queen. I consider No-One But You the last Queen song recorded. Anything that Brian May and Roger Taylor records with Paul Rodgers is most definitely not Queen - Paul Rodgers has NOTHING to do with Queen. In fact, I'm not exactly supportive of their decision to tour again. It's a mixed bag, really.

But touring is where I draw the line. Of course old fans would love to see Queen rock it on stage again even if it doesn't include Freddie Mercury and that's acceptable because Brian May and Roger Taylor can hold the stage decentlyish by themselves, but a studio album, if it comes out, is going WAY too far. They might as well rename themselves, or form a new band with Paul Rodgers - no need to slander the good name of Queen.

A few years ago Brian May and Roger Taylor recorded a rap version of We Will Rock You with a boy band. That's just going way too far.

Just my $0.02.




Queen rocks!

I'm a true fan and they can do wheatever they want, i really don't care, i enjoy the music, yes freddie is dead, what can i do? nothin, if they are touring for the money, that's ok, it's their music, if they chose paul rodgers as a singer, that's ok.

As i've said before, I can push play to my old cds and listen again their albums, for me that's the best.

And as a true fan, i support the idea of an album, like millions of fans suppor the idea of ACDC tourin with a new singer back in the late 70's, like tons of bands, but well...


Loser in the end!!!

I'm a true Queen fan. I would do anything to meet them again. Brian, Freddie and Roger are my idols! I know i'm missing out John but he isn't what I call my idol. I just respect him alot and he is just as important as the rest in the band.

Being fan of a band's music is different from being fan of two ex-band members's immoral decisions.


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.

I want to meet ALL of them, not just Brian and Roger. But the fact that they are the most likely ones I would/could meet then yes I would love to meet Brian and Roger again.

Right, OK. If we like Queen, we are true Queen fans. Whether we like Queen + Paul Rodgers is irrelevant to that. Can we drop this now? Or we'll just get BPP and his cronies moaning on about 'Paul is not Freddie and therefore deserves to die blahblahblahblah'
Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese.


This can't end well.

Who are you to decide what a true Queen fan is like?

By agreeing to everything they do doesn't make you a true fan. It makes you blinded by them. Brainwashed, even.

You've just contradicted yourself, since No-One But You wasn't recorded with Freddie.
