QUEEN WILL ALWAYS RULE! [ but not without BRIAN & ROGER !!]
QUEEN RULES!! I don't care what anybody says!!
EVEN NOW!! GOT IT???
Freddie Mercury was the best-the greatest EVERYBODY knows this, HE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN EVER!!! But he had a band of guys behind him!! These boys are very special-to this day. We lost Freddie & it was a shame, but it was also a shame & a waste that they stopped playing together because they easily could've kept going as a trio & they should've. They are the best band in the world. Brian May, Roger Taylor & John Deacon are an amazing trio, who backed Freddie but were geniuses in their own right. Remember, they all sang & they all wrote & they played almost everything known to man. LISTEN TO THEIR RECORDS!! Freddie wasn't the only one who sang lead!!
BRIAN MAY is the Best Guitarist in the World. [aside from Steve Hackett-there is proof of this since he almost joined GTR, could you just imagine how incredibly sick & fantastic that would've been????] He's also one of the greatest singers that has ever lived. Who ever doesn't realize this, just listen to lead vocals on any Queen album [you can tell who's which -get real !] & listen to his incredible solo albums [unfortunately he only made 2- 'Another World' & 'Back To The Light']. Never have I heard anyone else sing who poured their entire heart, soul & guts into their songs. This man does just that, i defy you to tell me that he's not an amazing vocalist. It's gut-retching! There is, of course-no question of this man's guitar playing. He made his own guitar with his daddy. No one else can say that. [Other guitarists get their names put on guitars they make after they get famous-Brian made his before he
became successful & he got famous because of it !!] He has singled -handedly proven he could've over as lead singer although he won't admit it. His voice is so strong it'll rip your heart out. Where do you think all those backrgound vocals came from. It was a waste not seeing this man play for 10 years & now he's back & I hope they stick around & show these awful new bands what it's really about!
ROGER TAYLOR is an amazing drummer. He's one hell of a singer as well. He's has the highest range of any normal vocalist & also plays every instrument known to man. Even as his 'Galileo' is so known all over the world. His contribution to Queen's madness is unmistakable. His 'I'm In Love WIth My Car' is still known as a classic. Yet he has much more songs in their catalog that completely stand out. The best album for me is 'Jazz'. That has everone of the guys singing & just coming together for one brilliant genius if a record. How he ever managed to sing & play like that is still unbelievable & i don't believe he's ever used a headset. That's incredible. His solos albums are beyond brilliant, his voice is to die for. Together Brian & Roger are the greatest power guitar & drum duo EVER!! . hey have ever right to keep Queen going between the 2 of them alone. God knows they don't need anyone else. That's Queen.
JOHN DEACON. The quiet one whatever you want to call him. He is one of the most tremedous bass players in the world. I wish he sang. There is no way that he can possible sing as bad as any of these jerks out there right now! The only thing is he's not in this line-up. He is extremely missed. [Please come back, you are all they need-you're all that's missing!]. he's retired. But he is still a genius. He's left us his incredible bass hooks & his very cool amp. John is beyond brilliant as well & that is really all that is wrong with Queen being out there right now. They made one hell of a trio as proven in their brilliant tribute to Freddie 'No One But You'. I wish he would come back, they'll do any he says. [We miss you John, please make an appearance!]
I was talking to a great friend of mine from work who happens to have a Styx song named after her. She said her husband had just bought their new Return Of The Champions record & he said that it 'sounded like Bad Company doing Queen'. That maybe true, but look who playing !!! It was funny. But this isn't Styx remember-while they should've quit a 10 years ago- Queen never should've stopped. They still had Brian & Roger & that's enough. That's their sound, thats Queen. They should've been a duo, but if Paul Rodgers must be there it is fine as long as it's not a Bad Company show.[At least it ain't that other weirdo who thought he could sing for them-I'm not going to mention his name but if you wanna know-write!!] I'm sure it'll be wonderful. As long as Brian & Roger are there. I DON"T CARE!!! & you shouldn't either. If you don't think that's cool, then don't go see them because if you do & decide to squak at them I will be there & kick the living crap out of you if you dare ruin my show! I've been waiting too long for this & it will be brilliant, just like they are. I have no question. My only wish was that Roger & Brian would sing more of their classics like 'Sleeping On The Sidewalk' & 'Rock It'. If that was the case Paul could just stand aside & watch their genius at work, but he's in it & it's cool. [Actually all I really need for him to do is shave, he looks way too much like the Originator!!!].
So do not think that this QUEEN reunion is wrong. It's more genius in the making.
I cannot wait to see this. I tried to see it in London but the bombings made it impossible [Bastards!] so now I will be seeing them here. Anyone who's in London or Vegas should really check out the musical. It is a brilliant piece of work. Anyway I will defend these boys to my death!! As long as they're together. That will always be enough!! They are the best !! They always will be! No band who has reunited lately will ever sound better than this!!
