> FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO SAYS THAT QUEEN DOESN'T EXIST ANYMORE, YOU'RE WRONG.
> QUEEN WERE FOUR, NOW THEY ARE THREE, BUT JOHN IS RETIRED FROM MUSIC.
And as Freddie said in 1977 (and the other three throughout the years), if anyone of the four, anyone of them left, it'd be the end of the band. So Fred+Brian aren't Queen, or Roger+John, or Fred+John, etc. And of course, Roger+Brian aren't Queen either.
> COS FREDDIE IS DEAD, HARD TO SAY IT, BUT IS THE TRUTH.
It's not hard to say. Fred's dead, thus the band ceased to exist. What they do now is a cover band that happens to copy the name and logo, but it's not Queen.
> COS FREDDIE WANTED THIS (THE SHOW MUST GO ON).
That's Brian's song, and still it doesn't mean anything. The show must go on, the band's name must not.
> THEY CAN DO WITH IT WHATEVER THEY WANT, COS IT'S THEIR MUSIC.
Sure, but we can do whatever we want with our opinions, because it's ours. And in my opinion, that's a coward move, and I'm actually disappointed that Paul Rodgers agreed to take part in such thing.
> SO COMMON FREDDIE MERCURY DIED IN 1991.
Common Freddie? Was there a "rare" one too? :-)
> THEY CAN'T LIVE IN THE PAST!!!
Sure they can, and they do: look at the tour, filled with songs written over fifteen years ago (for the most part). Do they go out with new material, a new band name, etc? No! They go out and play Ga Ga and Break Free and Love Of My Life, and use a name that Freddie invented three decades and a half ago. That's living in the past.
> THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!
Yes but it should go on under another name, unless they're coward, which of course they are.
> THEY MISS FREDDIE TOO, NOT ONLY YOU!!
I don't miss the geezer, since I never met him.
> WHO SINGED BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY IN THE TOUR????
I didn't see the tour (and I couldn't be more proud about that), but I think the one who "signed" (sic) it was Freddie for the most part, through tapes.
> Why can't Queen do the same thing?
Because it can't happen to every band. A Paul+Ringo tour wouldn't be The Beatles, just like Jimmy + Robert would be Page/Plant, not Led Zeppelin. And Jimmy + Robert were brave enough to use their own names. God bless them!
John hated Hot Space. Frederick's favourite singer was not Paul Rodgers. Rog didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Wales is not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 vox.
