Wow interesting, I'd never seen that interview by Roger, maybe they have plans they just aren't sharing yet. Roger did once say in an interview around 2014 that if they were to record he'd only want to do it with Adam but then they all seemed to be saying they didn't have any plans to and they got asked it a lot so I got the impression it would never happen.

I'd love them to personally but I can see why they'd rather spend time doing other things when they aren't touring and there's not much money to be made in recorded music now it's more to allow artists to tour which they clearly don't need new music for. Will be interesting to see if anything comes of it in the future.
I think I hadn’t seen that particular interview before either. It’s really interesting, but unfortunately already 3 years old. And nothing has happened since then for all we know.

It has always been clear to me, that Roger is the most willing to record new music with QAL. Brian and Adam are more hesitant, but I think Adam would be on board, if Brian was.

Looking at the three of them as a team, I do think they work really well as a live band. But recording? Maybe „3 is one too many“. I can see Roger and Adam working well together, since they are good friends in private, being neighbors in LA and having vacationed together more than once. But does Brian with his visions fit in? Could they find a common vibe? I‘m not sure. Maybe it’s better not to go that route and take the easy way as a spectacular, great working live band.
Yeah I don't know how they'd work together, Queen used to fall out in the studio when they were recording, Brian once said they were always on the verge of breaking up by the end of every album, I'm sure he didn't mean it literally but it must have got stressful and frustrating at times so I can't see them wanting to go there again and they do love the live touring with Adam.

I agree about Roger he's seemed keen from early on but like you say Brian & Adam not so much. I think they probably all like the idea of having something recorded together at some point in theory but can't really knuckle down to actually do it and it's not a priority for them, can't blame them really at their age and Adam has his own music to be working on so I'm not holding my breath. I guess time will tell.

I posted the following link yesterday but was not able to click on the “play” tab and get something to play. Did anyone else do it?

It’s about the video posted on page 4 in this thread.
Oh, is it the Brian/Sammy Hagar interview video? I thought it might be the actual song they. were working on in Nashville, but no such luck. Thanks for clearing that up.

Well, it's lucky for some of us that it isn't released :lol: ;)

Not sure what you mean, money is being raised.
Yep, and it would have been raised with no change to the song.
But the change was to make it obvious it's aimed at the frontline workers as opposed to the We which in this case would have looked like Brian, Roger and Adam were meaning themselves.
I know who it's aimed at. My point is, I'm sure money would still be raised with no change of the song.

After TCR I think both Brian and Roger are very wary about putting new music out there under Q+.

Brian probably is but I don't think Roger would hesitate, he'd have done it years ago if Brian & Adam were up for it.

Roger already said he'd record with Adam back in 2014 it was Brian who was hesitant and Adam seemed more interested in doing his own music but if Brian had been on board I'm sure Adam would have agreed to do it.

I never knew Roger said that back then :shock:

This is the article from 2014 and the quote from Roger. https://www.loudersound.com/features/qu ... ppointment

"“I’ll say one thing,” Taylor states. “If we have the material, then I wouldn’t go into making a record with any other singer than Adam, because he is so perfect with Queen. He has the range and the talent. I certainly wouldn’t be averse to giving it a go.”

That is an excellent article that all long standing Queen fans should read to better understand the Queen + Adam collaboration and why they have been so comfortable in sharing the stage for the past 8 years!
