Can you just get lost? If you dont like it dont bother us with it. There is nothing to be done about it. Cant you just leave and listen to Rolling Stones, Mew, The Coral etc instead?

Who cares about which name they use? If you dont have bigger problems in your lives than that, I dont feel sorry for you.

If Brian and Roger wants to make new material I am thrilled. If that includes using the Queen name its brilliant. Its none of our business which name they are going under.

If you dont like it, get lost. Noone will miss you.

I see your point. My point is, that this has been discussed too many times now. If you like it, nice, if you don't, too bad.

And besides, Roger and Brian have all the right to use the name 'Queen'. There were the true founders of this band. Freddie joined them later on.

While I only think of Queen being from the album "Queen" right up to "Made In Heaven" and then the song "No One But You"....

... I support their decision to chuck the Queen name on this new work, *PURELY* to see the looks on everyone's faces. I love watching people get indignant here and go 'the Queen name must not go on' and crap like that! I love it!

Rick,you're wrong:brian and roger founded "Smile" with Tim Staffel, but then he left and Freddie joined and WAS HIM who changed the name to Queen.I don't want to dissapoint you,only correct that point ;) However, i'm agree with their decition of record using this name...or what do you want people? their using "50% QUEEN"?.

> Can you just get lost?

No

Ditto.

> There is nothing to be done about it.

We can complain here. And so I will "Queen were Freddie, Roger, John and Brian, not these two opportunistic leeches".

>Cant you just leave and listen to Rolling Stones, Mew, The Coral etc instead?

No.

> Who cares about which name they use?

I do.

> If you dont have bigger problems in your lives than that

I have, but I still find room to say the following: they are not Queen.

> If Brian and Roger wants to make new material I am thrilled.

So am I, but they should use their own names.

> If that includes using the Queen name its brilliant.

No, it's coward, opportunistic, immoral and unethical.

> Its none of our business which name they are going under.

Then close your eyes when you see a message stating that they're not Queen, they're just two former members not having enough courage to use their own bloody names.

> If you dont like it, get lost. Noone will miss you.

Ditto.

> There were the true founders of this band. Freddie joined them later on.

That's utterly wrong. The three of them founded the band and decided later on that it would end if anyone of the four (now with John) left, ANYONE of the four. So Queen without John aren't Queen, Queen without Roger aren't Queen, Queen without Brian aren't Queen and of course, Queen without Freddie aren't Queen.

>Rick,you're wrong:brian and roger founded "Smile" with Tim Staffel,

That's not quite right: Brian and Tim founded Smile, then looked for a drummer and found Roger. But if we're saying Queen = Smile (replacing some members), we can also say that Queen = Wreckage (replacing some members), or Queen = Smile = Reaction.

> but then he left and Freddie joined and WAS HIM who changed the name to Queen.

He didn't join: both bands were off and they decided to form a new one the three of them. So Queen weren't Smile, they were a new band with two members of Smile and one member of Ibex, Wreckage and Sour Milk Sea.

> their using "50% QUEEN"?.

A new name, that's all. Like Asia, like Velvet Revolver, like Supernova...


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Come on people...
I also like bands like, for example, Deep Purple, and Black Sabbath. And if you see the history of this bands, you`ll see that they have had LOT of changes in their formations... last year came Deep Purple to my country...without Ritchie blackmore...and it rocked! obviously is not the same with Ritchie , but, is a great band without him too!...and nobody was shouting "Deep purple RIP", "without ritchie its not Deep Purple" or something like that because ritchie was`nt there..Why don`t you just enjoy new music, under the name that they want to have as a band?? Don`be narrow minded...

I can understand people might be angry at Brian and Roger for singing with someone else but the sad fact is, life goes on. Now I'm a massive Freddie fan but just because he died, doesn't mean Brian and Roger have to act is if the same had happened to them.

OK, then you should build your own website called ROGER TAYLOR AND BRIAN MAY + EVERYONE and create your own Forum. Let the real QUEEN FANS on QUEENZONE ok?.

Q-U-E-E-N Z-O-N-E

QUEEN = Freddie Mercury (yes FREDDIE MERCURY!), Roger Taylor, Brian May and John Deacon (YES JOHN DEACON!).

Sorry, but this is a place where QUEEN FANS can share things about THE BAND and we love it with Freddie. Please don´t tell me what to do.

Thank You!

When Noone But You was released I really loved the song (and still do!) but strongly felt it was just not right to call it a Queen song. I know it would have been even less successful had they released it as Brian, Roger & John (or whatever). But hadn't Brian said something like 'There's no Queen without Freddie' after Freddie died? He really should've stuck to that. I still get excited every time Bri & Rog work together, with or without PR, live or in the studio, but they're not and will never again be Queen. That is simply over, no matter what they may call themselves. Made In Heaven was (at least partially) the last true Queen album because Freddie obviously wanted some of these songs to be finished by the band and released. So what Brian and Roger can give us now as Queen is some unrelased studio or live stuff. Period.

There is one mighty difference: The Rolling Stones sound the same without Bill Wyman, but Queen just cannot sound the same without Freddie!
