for an actual response with no sarcasm.
john hasnt played with Queen since, i believe, 1997 when they played with elton john-the show must go on. I saw a recent pic of him, still had his hair, and of course he was a bit aged.

In fact, this question is far more original than questions like 'Where is John?' or 'Is BohRhap about AIDS?'.

I once heard Roger Taylor's interview on the radio...He said they asked John to join them on the tour,but he wasn't really into it, so they decided to go on tour without it. Roger mentioned that John doesn't like crowded places and lots of people around him...so let's say it's one of the reasons he didn't go on tour with them.
We all miss him,don't we:)?


I love Roger!!!

In case the cynics don't help, John Deacon is 100% retired from music and has supposedly given Brian and Roger his moral support and approval for the Paul Rodgers thing, but has no intention of rejoining the band.

True.

One thing regarding Roger...

I recently heard an interview with him at the US Convention ( forget which program it was on ...sorry!) and he was basically saying that he thought John was "stupid" for not wanting to tour again with them.

I found this a bit insulting and disrespectful to John. i know Roger was probably just trying to encourage him to change his mind, and Ol' Roge is great as he freely speaks whats on his mind....but.....well, i found it a little disrespectful.

We all have to sit back and come to terms with the fact that John is indeed retired and has chosen to do so under his own free will. I miss him and his influence in the Band as anyone, but i have enough respect for him to leave him be and let him get on with his life the way he sees fit.

Bless em'

Not me...

It's actually one way of keeping him around and in people's thoughts.

At least SOME people wonder about him. If no one ever asked, well, i for one would then be a bit worried!

Glad to know i'm not the only one who thinks of him....

You stupid people! Nobody knows what is the real reason. Roger told after the WWRY show in Cologne two years ago what was the situation between John and them, but I don't wanna say in some reasons... if you don't believe, ask people who were there...and I know where he lives...


I think I'm banana tree...

I could say a lot more right now, but won't!

I'll just say this:

Leave em' be folks. John chose this path, so leave him be!

Once a week John Deacon can be spotted driving his Volvo to the end of his driveway to his mailbox. Upon opening it he extracts an envelope smiles & exclaims "Hello royality check!!" Hops back into his Volvo & whisks off to his garage only to appear the following week repeating this activity.
