Queen and Paul Rodgers ablum out in October. Details at Real Rock News. I left a comment over there saying I am trying not to get my hopes to high. I want this to be a good album and tour. I get the feeling that unlike some bands (INXS) the remaining members of Queen know that Freddie can not or will not be replaced because he was a HUGE gigantic personality and talent that was loved by so many. So they chose someone who could SING and perform and are calling themselves Queen AND Paul Rodgers rather than Queen. I like that.

Do you like Queen?
Paul Rodgers?
Paul Rodgers and Queen together?

I really love Queen.. Freddie.. Brian... Roger... John... They're one of my all time fave groups.

Queen+Paul Rodgers for me is a different band, although I do think they play well together.

I think they sound great together live. I'm looking forward to hearing the new album and seeing what the collaboration will bring in the way of new songs. I also like the fact that they go by Queen and Paul Rodgers.

All the best!

Freddie is, in my opinion, the greatest front man ever.

And don't get me started on INXS and their Elvis impersonator tool of a "lead" singer.

Queen is great. Paul Rodgers, more so with Free than with Bad Co., is great. But Queen+Paul Rodgers? Maybe, but I doubt it. I might feel better if they just changed their name -- like Horny Corndog -- started anew and so could erase the bias I obviously won't be able to rid of.

Seems like we all agree in one way or another.

I really like the fact that they call themselves "Queen and Paul Rodgers" but I have to say Mad's suggestion is even better - a whole new band with a new name, but I like Corny Horndog better than Horny Corndog :)

Paul Rodgers is such a brilliant vocalist, while i love queen i 'm not sure this is his best move, queens music doesnt suit him, he's a blues-rock guy and it sometimes alll comes accross as a bit of a novelty act; love queen's album Jazz and Sheer Heart Attack; Free's Fire and Rain is awe inspiring but together ...hmmmmmm
