..or should i say Queen+Paul Rodgers Album, didnt he became official Queen member now?

Anyway, back to the subject. Brian says:
"In what we are doing now, Paul sings it for real, on the take, as well as playing piano or guitar, or bass, and I play the lead guitar for real, and Roger is interacting in the moment too, so this very organic, live moment is what you will hear on the final mix. "

Also he revealed that there are 8 songs for now :)

What do you think?

Really? So Freddie Mercury has been officially replaced now? Well about bloody time guys. Freddie's dead routine has been a real impediment to the band's career and output. I'd like to know why they waited so long, Freddie should've been replaced the moment they realised he was a homosexual and grew that moustache. Why they put up with it all is beyond me.




....what do you mean he was a genius? What does the "irreplaceable Freddie Mercury" mean??

...just to make it perfectly clear and for the record...the only living member of Queen I still respect is, of course, John Deacon. His avoidance of Mercury-free Queen projects speaks volumes.

Calm down.

No one has any idea what they will call the band at this point.

I'm willing to bet money they won't call it "Queen".

I'm going to do something left-of-field and listen to it before I rain shit on it. That is - if it deserves such a response.

If it's half as good as Endless Wire, I'll be fine with it.

I would genuinely like to see new material under a different name...

I've never had an issue with Queen being used up until now for tours and collaborations, but Brian constantly refers to this as the birth of a 'new band'..... well - how about a new name then!? Don't be afraid to let go of the Queen thing, I say.

My only reasoning being - this is the 2nd or 3rd time he's said something like this being an all new band, 'unlike anything Queen has done' or Paul Rodgers has done or whatever.

You are assuming that is why John avoided getting involved. Could be. My assumptions: I would imagine he is a multi-millionaire and doesn't need the money; touring sounds grueling even if you are in your 20s or 30s, let alone nearing 60; inventing and recording songs takes long and irregular hours in a studio, and sometimes the studios were in different countries; there is always the complicated business details that John particularly paid attention to - who needs that kind of aggravation?; and there is his wife and six kids to consider and enjoy. I would think during Queen's glory days, Brian, Roger, and John were to some extent absentee fathers. The Queen name without Freddie, oh, no. On the flip side I have to say seeing Queen + Paul Rodgers in St. Paul a year ago in March was the most fun I have ever had. The Queen Sound was there even if the Queen Voice wasn't.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

I love the Queen sound, but the more I read and hear about Brian and Roger recording new music with another singer, the more important the "Queen Voice" becomes to me. Can't help it. That's my personal opinion.

I certainly respect their right to record new music and to do whatever else they choose to do within the music industry. I just can't see myself buying into it. Yeah. I suppose I'm little more than a diehard Freddie fan.

Exactly, if it's different from Queen then maybe Queen fans won't like it or maybe people who don't like Queen will like it. It makes a lot more sense to have a completely new name, although it can't hurt to have a sticker mentioning that the band has two members of Queen on the album.


This can't end well.
