Other bands I like: Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, The Cure, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Coldplay (before they went all commercial in the '10s).
Some Queen opinions I have:
- Favourite songs: Bohemian Rhapsody, Who Wants To Live Forever, The Show Must Go On, You Take My Breath Away, A Winter's Tale, White Queen, Lily Of The Valley, Don't Try So Hard, Mother Love, Death On Two Legs, Killer Queen and Don't Stop Me Now.
- I have mixed feelings on the Paul Rodgers vs. Adam Lambert vs. Queen should've quit debate. On one hand, I once thought "if they wanted to continue, Brian May should've done the singing, even though he has a very different voice than Freddie Mercury, at least he's a Queen member from the start." But on the other hand, plenty of bands change their members sometimes, and if Brian May and Roger Taylor still enjoy performing, there's no harm in that. Paul Rodgers and Adam Lambert will never be allowed to even stand in Freddie's shadow, and will never even come remotely close to his amazing awesomeness. But by still performing, the band is being kept alive, and when young Adam Lambert fangirls get into Queen and also end up hearing the songs done by Freddie, that's an amazing thing. I think Paul Rodgers was a disgrace. He's not a bad singer, but his voice just doesn't fit Queen. Maybe it's also because he was the first one to replace Freddie (not counting one-time cooperations like the Freddie Mercury tribute concert), and there was no way he could really do it right, having to fill a giant hole left by Freddie's death. But Rodgers and Queen just doesn't feel like a good match to me. Adam Lambert comes much closer to the kind of frontman Queen should be looking for. Of course he's no Freddie, but at least he fits the band better than Rodgers. But having to succeed Paul Rodgers is way easier than succeeding Freddie Mercury, but still, I think Lambert is way better for the band than Rodgers. So at this moment, I'm pretty satisfied with Adam Lambert. I don't really see any better options at this moment.

I've already posted a few times but now that I noticed this thread here ( ) I just wanted to say hello!
I'm 25 years old, from Finland. I have not listened to Queen very long, I discovered their music properly about 18 months ago and just fell in love with it! Usually my taste in music is quite poppy and still is to some degree but a couple of years ago got a bit tired of the latest hits and was in search of something else for a change... I saw that Q+AL collaboration once during the European tour and enjoyed it, I'm glad that I went.
After lurking for a while I thought I would register and see what it's like here.
Cheers, see you around here.
