VERY Unlikely. There have been no rumours of this so I seriously doubt it. Besides, It seems that Roger is now the full time Queen drummer again.

And he seems to be doing fairly well, too. ;)

I think there is about as much chance of that happening as there is Queen taking part in a reality talent contest!... wait I got that wrong somehow?

They haven't completely gone their seperate ways. Spike is playing with Q+PR and Josh McCrae is part of the crew as well. So that only leaves 2 of them unaccounted for.

The Cross were dumped by their record company in 1990 when it came to light that Queen would be recording and releasing Innuendo.

EMI did not want anything to get in the way of that and, therefore, discourged The Cross by withdrawing support for the planned UK tour to support Blue Rock. Roger, understandably, was pretty pissed off that such a great band was treated so badly.

I'd love The Cross to re-form; a better option that Queen + Paul Rodgers in my book!

Not overly surprizing, the Cross gigs I went too were not troubled by too many fans.

Shame they were good, certainly Live they rocked, but Queen was always going to be the main band for Roger, I don't think he ever really thought they'd get in the way of that.

However my vote would definatly be for him to focus on Q+PR at the moment, if you want to see rock they are your boys!
