The remaining members of Queen need to just move on with their lives. Do a charity show every few years but the constant parade of singers needs to stop, IMO.

No idea who Adam Lambert is but I don't like his voice at all. His vibrato that he uses at the end of almost every note is really obnoxious.

Roger...Brian...please join John Deacon is retirement. Or release solo albums. Or tour together as something completely different. Please stop dragging Queen's name out and sullying it because you don't want to fade away like you should.

They are like the George Lucas of rock and roll. Go away. Please.

Thanks I'll skip watching it. Brian May has turned Queen into his own private karaoke machine.

Sounded like a Queen cover band. No resemblance whatsoever to the original article.

Note to Roger and Brian: We already have the music of Queen to enjoy. It's called "CDs". Find another way to make money, like...oh, I don't know...live comfortably off the royalties of sales?

If not for people posting new threads in the Music forum, I'd have no idea that Queen ever performed together as a band after that George Michael show at Wembly Stadium in the mid-90's.

A gay kid from American Idol. He changed every song he sung and screeched through every one of them.

I guess Lady Gaga was unavailable.

What's really sad is that whenever Brian May and Roger Taylor do this, it's always done as a "tribute" to Freddie Mercury. Yes, I'm sure that Freddie Mercury, one of the greatest voices in rock and roll, feels honored to have an endless stream of singers sully all the hard work he did for two decades. George Michael was the only person other than Mercury who ever sounded good with Queen.

From 2003

Taylor denied rumours that Queen would reform for a series of concerts with George Michael as Freddie Mercury’s replacement.

“That is an old one, but a good one,” he said. “We did a few shows with George about 10 years back and that is where that rumour started. No one could ever replace Freddie and we would not try.”

"The Show Must Go On"... ummm, no it doesn't.

Time to hang 'em up, boys... like 20 years ago when Freddy died (amazing that it's already been 20 years).

As for Brian May - time for a haircut. It looks like he's growing it long and wearing it high/bushy so he can to hide the fact that he's actually bald - ala Phil Spector.

While I enjoyed seeing them live with Paul Rodgers twice back in 2005 and 2006, I agree with the majority and they need to knock it off with the constant parade of various singers.

... or they need to bring We Will Rock You back to the states!

Actually, Brian's hair doesn't look any bushier or higher than it ever was. Except for being gray, it's pretty much the same. Except after all these years I'm sure he has a little less of it.

Brian is a legendary, influential rock guitarist, a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, has his PhD in astrophysics, and is the Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University. He could wear his hair in pink pigtails and he would still be awesome.

But back to the topic at hand, after watching that video, I would say to Adam that there's only one thing he and Freddie Mercury have in common.

re: Queen+ Adam Lambert

I can't fault Brian and Roger for wanting to keep working and making music, but why call it Queen? All four members were equally important to the songwriting and production (poor John Deacon always gets forgotten), but when 9 out of 10 people think of Queen, they think of Freddie front and center with the slicked back hair and mustache having 200,000 people under his command. Freddie is an irreplaceable lead singer. And with John Deacon cutting his losses and just enjoying his residual checks, it makes it even less "Queen", give it a different name, do what Oasis or Guns N' Roses did with Beady Eye and Velvet Revolver. Most people are never going to accept Queen without Freddie, and rightfully so.

Adam looks so much like Boy George in that video

I'm still waiting for Roger Taylor's latest solo album The Unblinking Eye (Everything Is Broken), and have been for two years. I'm a big fan of his solo stuff (even if his lyrics are a bit naff). Just release it to the web already, we know it's done and you don't really need the money. Sheesh.

re: Queen+ Adam Lambert

So apparently the two shows Queen and Lambert scheduled for the Hammersmith in London sold out almost immediately and Brian May says they're looking into whether they can get a third night. So far we have four confirmed shows for them this year with a possible fifth. I just hope they record one of them for a CD/DVD/Blu-Ray release.

They should stop using the name Queen and call themselves Queer.

Re: Queen+ Adam Lambert

How about Drag Queen, as in...

dragging this out for way too long, or
dragging their aging carcasses onto the stage again, or even
dragging Freddie's memory through the mud with every lackluster singer they hire.

Yeah I'm sure it will be a keeper.
