Re: Album

Just out of curiosity, since QAL started, how many tracks have they played off The Cosmos Rocks, that being the most recent original album to feature the Queen name? If, as I suspect, the answer is zero, then that's all the reason you need to be a little bit concerned about the longevity of any suc...

Re: Queen Covers

Metal groups have always been influenced by Queen and often cite them heavily. One of the most heavily influenced is German Power Metal band Blind Guardian, one of my favourite bands outside of Queen. They even named one of their albums " A Night At The Opera". Hansi is a great vocalist in his own r...

Re: Queen Covers

Here is an interesting cover- This is the recent release by acapella Power Metal band Van Canto and their version of I Want It All. Remember the only instruments on this are drums and percussion. All guitar sounds are done by vocals. 8 vocalists feature on this track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Re: BM solo re-releases: "We're working on a plan"

A couple of years ago, Atlantic/WEA released a 4-disc boxset of Phil Collins various collaborations with other artists between 1969 and 2011. Some really high profile artists nevertheless appeared on it, from a huge variety of labels. So, in theory, if Brian ever wanted to do so, he could make some...

Re: Goodbye

Have lurked here for years and read the posts of FD for just as long. All I have to say is what an ego maniac. Didnt realise that the forums are an airport where you have to announce your departure? Lets have a countdown to see how long it is until he comes back and does it with a flourish and hides...

Re: Background story of Hangman

Its a shame that we can no longer prove the veracity of the claim. I would love to hear a studio version of Hangman, if it exists. For me, it would be the Holy Grail of lost Queen items. Its quite odd that they played this song for a number of years but never went back to it in the studio. Someone m...

Re: Album

...and Freddie's solo stuff like Made In Heaven and I Was Born To Love You? I see your point, but for every action, there's an opposite reaction. I personally dislike the idea of Adam Lambert reworking We Are The Champions, or anything Queen. It doesn't add to the story, it just dilutes it. But tha...

Re: QAL Perform Anything Else From Innuendo?

I have seen QAL on all three of their Aussie tours over 9 concerts and they have all been excellent. But they need to mix up the setlist enormously. Yes the hits are there but to live on the edge even further is needed. There are so many great songs in the back catalogue that need an airing its not ...

Re: Album

How about this for an idea? Not sure if this has been floated before, but both Roger and Brian have extensive solo careers in their own right. We all agree that within these catalogues there are some completely awesome songs that would have been superb Queen songs if they were given the chance. Son...

Re: Background story of Hangman

I protest use of the word infamy The band (via the archivist) have said there is no tape of a recording Um ok..why do you protest on the use of word infamy? I think its fairly accurate especially given the info that you have just imparted. What he said! Check out the latest edition of Queen Pod whe...
