anyway, Why after no one but you, why not after freddie died. is it because no one but you was great, if this album is great will u say "well...it's ok i suppose".

anyway they were the two founding members FREDDIE JOINED!

they are Queen not the old queen no, but they are still queen.

Although I think we should Brian and Roger use the Queen name as they want (nb: they NEVER inculded Paul in the Queen name, it's Queen+Paul Rodgers for God's sake!), one could argue that although Brian and Roger were at the very start of the band, the name Queen in itself was found by Freddie (even Brian and Roger admitted they weren't really enthusiast about it at the begining)so maybe if Freddie is dead, the name shouldn't be used.
However, I think Roger and Brian who spent twenty years of their life with Freddie, know what they're doing and have the right to use the Queen name even nowadays without John and Freddie. It wouldn't even make sense if they took a new name.

Wow, this is a fresh and exciting topic.

Why hasn't anyone though of something like this before for a topic of discussion?

I can hardly wait to engage in a dialogue and come to understand the fascinating points of view concerning this subject matter.

Queen should stay. Paul Rodgers should go.

Elizabeth, as you seem like a good soul I'll be gentle. No one has ever said B & R don't have the "right" to use the Queen name. However, for the man on the street, Freddie was Queen. To some people, Queen was the four of them. "Rights" have nothing to do with it. Brian is perhaps the finest gentleman in music. But at one time, Brian took a vow before God to be faithful to his wife. It was his "right" to do what made him happy. He committed adultery. He also had the "right" to play in a blacklisted country whose racist policies were abhorrent to most artists and sportsmen in the world. My point is, what B & R feel their "rights" are may be right for them. It may be absolutely wrong for other people, and those people will never accept B & R using the Queen name. Rights are what you feel. Someone here who doesn't care that they are calling themselves Queen recently said something like "five letters (Q-U-E-E-N) shouldn't mean more than the music" and that person is absolutely right. But, I'd counter that if it's about the music, dump the Queen name, because Freddie Mercury made Queen different. However, it's not about the music, it's about sales and brand recognition. There's no shame in that, but for my money, it ain't Queen without John and Freddie. If others say it is that's great. I just wish that people would be honest and say it's about sales and nothing more.


You know, good times are now.

Boy Raker, I think I got your point though I'm not sure whether you are talking "rights" on a legal point of view or a moral point of view.
I was talking from a moral point of view: Brian and Roger think there's no harm in using the name. (I think Freddie wouldn't mind that)
