BRIAN MAY has defended his decision to recruit FREE singer PAUL RODGERS on vocals and reform QUEEN for a series of live performances.



The BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY guitarist set his sights on Rodgers to replace the late FREDDIE MERCURY after they appeared together at a concert to mark the 50th anniversary of the FENDER STRATOCASTER guitar - much to the chagrin of many music critics, who have described the move as a "disaster".



The 57-year-old, who will perform alongside original drummer ROGER TAYLOR, rages, "What would you like us to do? Wear sackcloth and ashes for eternity? It was us who made Queen, and it's been nearly 20 years since we last trod the boards with our wonderful Freddie.



"There are plenty of people who think it's anything but grim that we might make some noise again. It's so funny - all these half-wits who relentlessly slagged off Freddie when he was alive are now calling him 'much missed' and the like



"And, of course, the rest of us are now villains. Well, villains we shall be - there's nothing Freddie would have liked more"
