QUEEN founders BRIAN MAY and ROGER TAYLOR always approach former bandmate JOHN DEACON before they plan a tour or live project, in the hope the bassist will rejoin the group.
Deacon has refused to take part in Queen activity for more than a decade, and wants no part of the band's ongoing reunion tour with former Free star Paul Rodgers fronting the group.
In his place, Rodgers, May and former Blue Oyster Cult star Danny Miranda provide bass on the group's new record and live.
But May and Taylor have never given up on their former bandmate.
May says, "Whenever we tour, we always put a little feeler out and say, 'Perhaps you might be interested, John.' But he's not."
