It they don't play with pinguins or watch silly cartoons, then yes, they will hit the studio.

I don't think serious work will start till after Paul's tour so end of October is looking more promising I suspect, however I wouldn't be surprised if they have sneaked a few days so far.

Three tracks have already been recorded and are only missing Paul's final vocal. Very shocking who's playing bass.

How do we know this?

I really wonder who will play bass. My best guess is Brian and Roger and Danny Miranda.


Or maybe even Neil Murray. I really HOPE there won't be more of those musical jerks in it.
I hope that they will also not include SPike in this project

Of course Spike will be involved...

He's basically been referred to as "the fifth memeber of Queen" several times over the years by the band themselves.

Surely he will be in the background adding keys...he has for most of the other later Queen projects, and solo material too am i right?

I agree. Brian is an adequate keyboardist, and made all the right stuff happen on his solo albums. This shouldn't change.

If this album is a mix of Happiness and Another World with Paul's touch, then I'll be an incredibly happy man. But if it's a bunch of songs like Take Love, I won't be too thrilled.

I also think they should get a new band name like the Foo Fighters or Audioslave did. With the name Queen, it will be compared to their previous work by everyone, fans included, and it won't compare, because Freddie isn't there. But if they have a new name, it will be taken as a new project, and it will be highly anticipated by everyone. I think they're deemed to failure if they use the name Queen without Freddie on a new studio album.

The Queen name will be used because it will likely maximize sales. The band name is relatively unimportant in comparison to the quality of the music.

Yes, but they'll be accused of cashing in on their old name, which commercially, is associated mostly with Freddie. This wouldn't happen if they chose a new name. It's all about what they think matters most: artistic integrity, or money. Besides, with the right amount of marketing, a new name could work out very well, music aside.

So I wonder if we'll be hearing any piece-meal snippets of Freddie to justify usage of the big Q word?? :P

Either way I won't be complaining till I hear it. I'll judge the music first - then I'll get heavy on the name they pick. Heh.

I'm looking forward to it... I finally listened to their vesion of "Imagine" last night... and I liked it... the sound was terrible... that would be a nice cover... if the wanted... it is a song that is always relevant. I'm just ready to hear new stuff and get them down to Texas.

there are bound to be many unused freddie vocals that are of decent quality. all that needs to be done is remastering and them being added to music. As we all know "you dont fool me" was barely a complete song, but they made it into a great one.

I hope they use Danny, he did a great job on tour and deserves the chance to do the album with them, plus the fact that the whole Q+PR team were at the Paul Rodgers gig in London last week seems to me they are a unit now, so maybe even Jamie will be involved on second guitar?

You Don't Fool Me suffered for being a 'skeleton' as Roger called it, but it was still more than servicable (and, arguably, not as bad as one or two of the songs they released while Freddie was alive?). I quite like the track, honestly.

So - I think there's something to be said for making new songs out of sparse vocals they recorded ages ago. At least one song - an opportunity to pass the torch, or at the very least say 'hi there'. Hehe. I'm talking bullshit now.
