How many albums do you think they would've produced after 1991's Innuendo (not counting Made In Heaven since it was post-humously done)?

Would they have stayed together?

Would they have gotten better? After Live Aid, Queen the band was rejuvenated. But every album after The Works probably was affected some way with Freddie's illness. I stil think by the Works album, Freddie knew something was amiss. You can guess by the songs from Mr Bad Guy Album, Magic, and of course Miracle/Innuendo albums. These were all about Freddie and his illness.

I think if Freddie was alive and queen were together today, they would've probably still been making music...and maybe even a Christmas album..would be nice.

If they were still together I think in the 90's we would have seen them embrace the way pop music was going and performed duets with artists like Five and Robbie Williams.

There would be no Innuendo-album, if there was nothing wrong with Freddie.

Because there WAS a Miracle and Innuendo album, we can count those as legitimate Queen albums.

Even if the group stayed together until say 1996, are you saying Miracle and Innuendo wouldn't have existed? Of course it would.

What if Freddie was still alive today? Magic Johnson has AIDS but he's still healthy, right?

Would Freddie still be part of Queen? Would they still be making albums? touring?

I think that if Freddie was healthy even with AIDS, he probably would be.

If Queen were still together in 2007, they would have already written another epic track.
Previous ones being Bohemian Rhapsody in '75 and Innuendo in '91.
2007 would have been the release of another 6 minute bad boy!


Innuendo or Kashmir? Both awesome!

Innuendo, the album, contains many aspects about Freddie's bad health. It's almost a journey of Freddie last days. If he hadn't got AIDS, then there would be a different kind of Queen album. Innuendo is a very moving, dark album, with some very emotionals songs and beautiful lyrics, using metaphors about Freddie.

Sure, it is a legit Queen album, but it wouldn't be there if Freddie was OK. I think The Miracle could be there, maybe not all songs, but most of them for sure.

No, he went to Africa and got cured. He said it, I didn't.

Anyways, if they were all still going they would have kicked out Brian by now. John would have finally got that solo album out. Roger would have crashed his car and unable to play drums again. Freddie, well Freddie would still be singing Opera, of course!

A lot of people think that Freddie would be a producer instead of being a singer. In 1986 he said that he was becoming to old to perform ike he used to.
He would still write songs but for other artists.

I think I agree with that...

who needs paul rogers anyway. you cant even understand what he says when he sings queen.
