This is from Brian after the tribute concert
'the knebworth show was the last time you saw Queen as a band. I dont think it can ever exist again.'

mmmmmmmm well what do you call performing under the name of Queen with only two of you Brian. Go figure.


Go, Go, Go, little queenie!!

Wow, I guess once you've said something it means you can never take it back... People change their minds all the time, why can't he?

Peace,

i think all of you need to settle down and quit ripping on brian and roger.

so what if they used the name queen without freddie? I love Queen and I love Freddie and John, but how many other bands have replaced memebers to continue on making music for us?
led zepplin, AC/DC,pink floyd,Inxs, and countless others

THAT being said...they are NOT REPLACING john or Freddie.

They were very specific is making thier name on the cd,dvd and all tour mechandise

Queen +
Paul rodgers

it is a variation, they are not saying, hey look at us, this is the new queen, love it or leave it.

they are saying

We still love making music, we love making music together, and we appreciate all the suport everyone has given us over the years so here is some new sounds under the old name, with some new friends.

LEAVE THEM THE FUCK ALONE ALREADY

seriously, do you think that Brian and Roger dont miss freddie? and wouldnt have wanted to play with him AND john if they could? Do you not think that Brian and Roger might just possibly know a little bit more about the situation than us?

Give them some fucking credit already and quit your fricking whining. if you dont like it, dont listen to it.

But i will say one more thing. and i hope you think about this.

In north America, where alot of us are from, if they hadnt used the name queen, we would never had got a tour, we would not know practically anything about what they are doing (except those that check the website). I didnt know that Brian had a solo career untill it was over and done with, I didnt know roger had one either before the internet.

I got to see queen in concert this last april, and you know what I am thankfull for that everyday, it was a dream come true , even if it wasnt all of them.

in closing shut the fuck up and quit complaining. would you rather they not make music at all?

didnt think so.

I agree with you 200% completely. And i too never knew Bri had solo albums, ditto for Roger until i did my reasearch on the net. But this topic's pretty moot at this point. These things are just like beating the dead horse...
Many people like Q+PR, many dont. And for those who still dont even after seeing them or not, we'll never change their minds.
And so what if Brian said he didnt "believe in Queen anymore..." or whatever. Do you ever think that maybe something pushed their hearts into this? That it felt right to them?
I think so.

Brian changes his mind too many times during last two or three years... Paul Rodgers was Freddie's hero, now Cliff Richard was Freddie's hero and Brian Bennett was hero for Roger, Freddie didn't have to record solo album without asking Brian to help him, blah-blah-blah...

No but Cliff Richard really *was* a hero of theirs, they listened to him back in the day and Freddie even deigned to let Cliff on the same stage as him.

Re: Mr. Bad Guy stuff on Brian's Soapbox... I think yeah he's probably got some problems over that, but they're largely human ones to have - if I'd worked with someone for 13 years and then they hired someone to 'play like me' I'd feel a bit funny too.

Can't defend the Paul Rogers stuff because I honestly never remember any of Queen talking about him before 2004. I honestly don't think it matters. I'd be willing to bet Freddie liked Paul Rogers, but I don't know about using that 'hero' word that Brian used.

Meh.

Maybe Cliff was their hero, maybe Paul was their hero - I don't know, but what I know is that we get these facts always in the "right" time (when they're working with Paul, with Cliff etc.)...

(Freddie said a lot of good words about Caballe BEFORE recording of Barcelona, for instance.)
