I think Axl Rose would be a better fit than all of them, Freddie included..
I've always loved his singing, never thought of him as a potential Queen singer until I saw a Youtube of him singing Bohemian Rhapsody. Really fantastic, best non-Freddie performance I've ever heard of that song. His voice is huge, powerful, and the tone is spot-on. Unfortunately they'd go with Lambert for the publicity/name recognition value, given the option of a better (but relatively unknown) singer.This. Not the "big name" that Lambert has, but sounds really good...
Brian and Roger had nearly 20 years of doing primarily none Queen endeavors and they recorded a number of their own albums under various guises. Sure they have had some Queen related activities in that time (the "We will rock You" musical for example). Its inevitable after a long break they might want to try something together again. It's only really the last few years where they have done the Paul Rodgers and now Adam Lambert tours that they have gone down this road.Reading this thread, there's apparently a sense in which the fans won't let Queen move on. I wonder what Taylor and May would do if they didn't have such a legendary past hanging over them. My guess is that they'd be more free to write and record new music.
Yes. Certainly don't want 'the ghey' rubbing off on anyone..Blech. There's something about that guy that just bugs me. It isn't that he's gay. It might be the "look at me I'm gay" over the top part of it. Maybe it is the over-the-top theatrics.
Freddie was flamboyant and obviously gay, but he pulled it off well. This guy-- not so much IMO.
He's got some chops but there's something about his voice and style that just turns me off.
