Record Collector Issue 358 featuring Queen. â€œWe still feel that Freddie is around in so many ways. We refer to him so much that I feel heâ€™s part of everything.â€ â€“ Brian MaySeventeen years since their last album recorded with Freddie Mercury, Queen returned to rock us this year with The Cosmos Rocks, minus Mercury but, as the new banner proclaims, â€œ+ Paul Rogersâ€. In that time, Queenâ€™s status as arguably the best British rock band since Led Zeppelin has refused to die, with the musical We Will Rock You reminding hundreds of the power of their songs on a nightly basis. Guitarist Brian May and new frontman Paul Rodgers spoke to RC about comebacks, filling shoes and, of course, the memory of one of the worldâ€™s greatest frontmen.
