I know queens history, but I personally never liked them until I heard paul on vocals along with brian and roger. ROTC is simply some of rocks best live performances, and paul is simply unmatched. Don't get me wrong freddie Mercury and rober plant are good, but paul is amazing!

well,, i suppose if you like them you need to look at the foundations... with out freddie there wouldne be this great amouint of music for queen + paul to go on with. As for the best thing to happen to queen...... no.... its great for fans as your self.... i listen to the ROTC, but.... its not the best thing to happen. Maybe in there eyes, they feel they can move on.

Let's put it this way: Paul is the best thing that happened to Queen since Freddie passed away.

Then it's a definate YES! for me.

Nooooooooooooooooooooo. I was a fan of Paul's before I'd even heard of Queen (and still am a fan of his) but I just don't think that the Queen+PR thing works at all. I'd be happier if Brian & Roger shared vocals rather than having anyone else as front man. Leave Paul to his solo stuff and Bad Company tours where he is at his best.

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

This is very interesting, and I'm glad you posted. Ignore all of the teenagers and closed-minded Freddie fans here. You see, a lot of people are "Freddie" fans, not "Queen" fans. You're definitely not the first person to prefer Queen with Paul Rodgers over Queen with Freddie Mercury.

I will agree with Jeroen and say that Paul is the best thing to happen to Queen in the last 15 years. Paul is unlike everyone else the band has worked with. He's not trying to be anything like Freddie. Paul is being Paul, and he lends his unique style to every Queen song he touches without insulting the original.

To each their own opinion.

I think Paul is an awesome singer, and together with Queen they put out a great show. However, I wished that it was Brian and Roger doing the vocals themselves.

In MY opinion... He isn't the BEST thing that's happened to Queen recently... BUT! He's helped alot in getting them to collaberate with him and sale out loads of gigs. If you think about it, theres alot more youth liking Queen, ever since they opened the WWRY Musical and did the tours. I'm sure of it.

honestly i dont think that paul's voice fit in queen's songs...nobody is going to sing better than freddie of course but for ex. george michel would be much better than paul. george singing somebody to love sounds pretty similar to the orginal!
