It means some people don't like change.
You can join the small minority of toxic people who go running to the mods every time a Koala trips on a bamboo stick or rise above it, come in and put your feet up. Would you like a biscuit?

It's been slowing dying since "Queen" first performed with Lamberace. As a fan I'm actually ashamed of them. I'm not alone. But, hey, they got new fans to worry about :roll:

As soon as something cool comes along like a new Queen release and/or the movie it will pick up.

I'm hoping the movie makes it out. They had such trouble last year with the casting of Freddie. I would like to see a factual, tastefully made movie about their lives, all they had to overcome to get their music out and the courage and devotion of not only Freddie, but everyone in his life. Let's hope for the best!
Thanks for your post =)

Thls board is not dead, but people are... All sucked up by Facebook, Twitter and so on...
Just face it, most people growing up with Queen are now in their 40s or 50s... which means family and kids for
most of them. They have no time for this. People in their 20s are browsing social media.

The only thing keeping this board alive is infact Queen + AL. If not for them touring, this board would be even more empty.

It's been a long time coming, my friend. And quite a few of us know why it has sadly become this way. I mean, it was never hugely busy on here, but at least we had regular contributors - many who simply do not want to post here anymore. Shame.

Looks like we, the original fans, were fortunate enough to live in that magical time when Queen was born. I'm proud of that! Let's rally together and give support to the classic Queen of yesterday and Queen + AL today, as well as each other!! We paved the way!!

We? Who are you?
Cause you are beautiful
Your scars are beautiful, like the Jade
You'll still shine when you sink into the sea
Where the bleeding scarlet jealousy
Carves away your belief

Who am I?? I'm part of the generation that grew up rocking to Queen from the beginning in the 70's-80's! Still am!
