Short:

1.- Should Freddie ('s voice) be present in any Queen new song on the upcoming album?

2.- Should some unfinished song (demos) be completed by PR on voice, and share then the main vocals?

I think I stated once before that there should be some reference to Freddie, but I've changed my mind.

That's all been done already. I think it would be much better if the album is 100% original. And I predict it will be.

Now, if some singles come out, I don't have any problem with them using something like that as b-sides, but I still doubt it will happen. I'd like to see some later Queen+ stuff as b-sides, such as the studio versions of 46664 tracks.. but that's probably just a dream too. Chances are they'll just use some unreleased Queen + PR live tour tracks as additional songs on any singles.

Just to clarify why I don't think Freddie should be included: We had the tour with input and tributes to Freddie, and 2006 was the year of Freddie as far as the 60th b-day releases.. so, enough already :)

NO.


Is time to look ahead and live the TODAY... tribute was fine... made in heaven was fine... but is time for them, and for the fans too... for making a new start in some ways... and not only live the past...

roger and bri have a lot to show... and we have to support them and stop putting Freddie everywere...

My opinion..

Queen rocks!

I wish the whole album would be unfinished demos.

I dont know why fans are against Brian & Roger like this... i cant believe it... i cant understand... i cant.

Every day im more convinced that for the majority Queen was Freddie+ 3 sessionists.

1. No

2. No



Freddie is dead, move on.

A duet with Freddie and Paul would be interesting. But we already have 3 singers (I think Roger and Brian also will sing a few songs) and 4 singers would be way too much

THere will be a new "Made in Heaven" type of album when the box sets come out. A Compilation of the best demos reworked by Bri, Roger and (hopefuly) John.

For this (Queen+PR) project they should, and will, use just new stuff!!

...I think although Brian and Roger very much respected Freddie they seem to have a need to prove that they can cut it without him.

NO! Let Freddie's spirit rest in peace. This is a new band, as Brian has stated on many occasions.

I find it strange that people can't accept Bri & Rog using the name Queen, but still, are supportive to the idea of them re-working some old demos. I mean, there was a reason for those demos not be finished and released. I don't think Freddie would have wanted the guys to use some of his guide vocals and put them on an album as a "new Queen track". He was such a perfectionist when it came to his work.

Some demos will probably get released in box-set (in 2036), but that's a separate project. So, no Freddie on a QPR album.

I think it would be interesting for a few tracks, but again you have to keep in mind that they are taking the music in a new direction. But I'm open to anything....

No & no. They shouldn't mix old stuff with new stuff. Queen and QPR are two different bands.

Yeesss, you´re right. But, when the box sets will be released? Ahhh!!! in 2091 for the 100 years of the Freddie´s dead.


the logical one is good to think, but it does not to live

QPR and Freddie's Queen material should be kept separate.

If it's a new album, how can anything 16 years old be relevant? Let them move on, otherwise it becomes creepy.


You know, good times are now.

I want to hear more Freddie.
Not on this album though.

Just look at it logically... unless they just happen to have a remaining Freddie song or two that is totally appropriate to the theme/feel of what they're doing, it'd just be pointless. It'd be like Freddie riding in on his bicycle, waving, and riding off again. Frivolous.

But by all means, would love to hear ANYTHING that is unreleased so far.

No and no.

This new studio cd is not a Queen cd, it's a Queen + Paul Rodgers cd.

Any demos or unreleased material with Freddie on it, if decent, should be included in a box set, not on a Q+PR cd.
