No, they founded A band. Not THE band. The guy with the ideas wasn't on board back then.

I don't know why Jimmy Page & Paul Rodgers came up with The Firm, they should've called the band Led Zepplin.

The Firm had one Led Zeppelin member, not all four. Considering you didn't know how to spell "Zeppelin", you probably don't know a thing about them, so that means you know even less about The Firm.

I swear, somehow most of the world's musically ignorant people find a way to migrate to Queenzone.

I have no problem with Paul Rogers working with Brian and Roger, he does a good job on the songs and they are making good music. I have a few reservations with Brian and Roger calling themselves Queen however, but I suppose it keeps the flag flying.

I stand corrected.

Of course it doesn't matter anyway.

Not to you, obviously. I mean, it sounded all very respectful back then, didn't it?

I'm annoyed at the ridicule this move has been greeted with in the media. Finally Queen got some well deserved respect, and Freddie was recognised for the genius he was....and they go and do this.

It seems the acceptance of mediocrity has seeped through to this level. Queen used to be unique because Freddie Mercury himself was unique in so many ways...and that's what always seperated them from all the other bands.

Some of the rubbish and comparisons to other bands I've read here are laughable and juvenile in the extreme. I realise it must be difficult accepting that you'll never get the chance to see the real Queen ever perform. I saw them a couple of times and it's something I know I'll never see the like of again. But it's gone and no amount of sticking your head in the sand, or accepting the sheer greedy, tasteless and tacky idea of a new studio album with a different singer could ever bring back.

Queen?


Yeah, I've tried that route before, too. For some reason, there are far too many people who believe Queen are exempt from this. Hell, even INXS kept their name.

And look at the credibility INXS have. Soon to be playing at a club near you.

You'd have thought that Queen would descend into the Van Halen type argument? Dave or Sammy?? If you want cred you know who to side with. But so many of the comparisons don't compare. The Stones will be the Stones as long as the ESSENTIAL MIX is intact, Mick, Keith & Charlie. Daltrey & Entwhistle used to tour and as much as Daltrey claimed it was his band, even he knows that without Townshend it's not the Who. AC/DC had their first major success with Back In Black. They never had the world wide profile under Scott as they would later achieve with Johnson. If this new "Queen" album achieves a tenth the success of any old album, I'll be gobsmacked. The Doors finished with Morrison, I don't even know why that's a serious comparison. You can't believe what they did recently with Astbury as credible?? Why not add the "New Cars" to that list. To much hilarity they're on the road without Ocasek or the fellow who looked like Roger Taylor, the other vocalist bassist(?) who sang "Drive"(who sadly passed away)?

If anybody thinks Queen & Paul Rodgers will be able to do a Genesis and emerge in 2006 an even more successful outfit, please say so, otherwise what's it for? Keep playing & recording music guys, I love their stuff too obviously, but pay some respect and don't try and pretend you're something you are not. This is obvioulsy aimed to a market that discovered Queen post Mercury and missed experiencing the album/tour cycle. To those who grew up with the band for a period of some years and experienced the highs of things like Bo Rap, Live Aid, Wembley etc and then finally sharing the deep loss of Mercury and the incredible charitable work that followed, this incarnation is a sad greedy footnote to an irreplaceable, much loved and UNIQUE rock band.

But INXS is a great comparison, recently when appearing on Rockline IIRC, INXS left a question to next weeks guests, Brian & Roger, about replacing their lead singer as INXS were doing. Oh no, they could never do that they gushed.....

AMEN


She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead
