Yup, that's a logical conclusion.

Sheesh. Maybe they weren't invited. Or maybe they were busy.

The Stones didn't make a statement because they didn't have to. I don't think their paths crossed all that much, so there was no need to do so -- just as Queen never really remarked on the deaths of, say, Keith Moon, John Bonham, or whatever. Only Roger really spoke about John Lennon's death.

As for Michael not appearing, he and Freddie had a falling out in the mid eighties, so while I'm sure Michael was sad to see a former friend pass away, there might have been so much acrimony there that he just didn't want to get involved (besides, I'm sure he was in his own world in the early nineties).

THey weren't that close as friends. And they only did one small project together. You could also be asking why Billy Squire or Eddie Howell or Jo Dare weren't there

The only one I think who should've been there was Montserrat Caballe.

I mean, I can see why you're asking, but not everybody could be their.

If you're wondering why the Stones didn't make any kind of statement of Freddie's death or something I don't know. The one thing that strikes me the most is why Micheal Jackson didn't participate. I mean, he was Freddie's friend and musical collaborater. Then again thats just me. Take care.

Billy was there, wasn't he? He just didn't perform, but I'm sure he was in the WATC singalong at the end.

They weren't *good* enough for the Freddie Tribute. But that could be said for most of the acts, except Roger Daltrey.

I mean shit! They cancelled the Rock 'n' Roll Circus after one episode, because The Who kicked their arses! It would've been traumatic for him to experience the same thing again.

Yes, you can see Billy (and also some members of the Scorpions) during WATC.

Why is this in Serious discussion?
So in reality this thread is about bringing down one person to elevate another. Freddie doesn't need you to trash Jagger in order to make him look better. Another fucking retarded thread.

I always thought of the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert as a showcase for bands and artists who were influenced by Queen to pay their respects, rather than older rock stars singing Queen hits.

Aside from Daltrey, Plant, Bowie, and Elton John there weren't so many classic rock artists.

I remember a magazine at the time showing Klaus Mine (spelling?) in a picture and asking who the hell had invited him. LOL

No I don't think the Rolling Stones were "too good," for the FM Tribute. As previously stated...they were going through some pretty rocky times at that point between Bill Wyman's departure, and Mick and Keith sorting out their working relationship again...They just weren't there...period.

Klaus Meine.

I remember I wondered why he was there and I asked on this forum and YV I think said it was because Guns N Roses might not of performed due to a lot of threats, so Scorpions were there to replace in case GNR couldn't perform... and that Scorpions became friends of Queen in Freddie's last couple years of life.

I think Michael was up to his neck in shit from the childmolestor charges...or maybe just on his Dangerous tour...

Michael Jackson was recording the Dangerous album

The FM Tribute Concert was perfect, even with some mediocre performances (Robert Plant comes to mind), any additions would be welcomed, but it was fine the way it was.
Axl Rose, David Bowie and George Michael were on fire that night =)
