Queen only had one lead singer. Brian and Roger aren't and never will be Queen. They are just two members of the group.

Yes for sure. Two halves of Queen doesn't make a full Queen. Not for me anyways.
Before anyone starts, nope I didn't consider Q+PR as As Queen either.

To me he is the frontman FOR Queen. And not only for the moment, because that moment has already lasted for 6 years. I know, you don’t agree with me and I can live with that.

Would you say Paul Rodgers was the frontman for Queen?
AL says himself he is a guest and hasn't replaced Freddie.

Yes, I would say the same about Paul. Adam isn‘t replacing Freddie, who was the frontman OF Queen.

And Adam did call himself that. I got that term from his twitter header, some time ago.It had been there for quite some time until he changed it again.

As much as I liked PR singing Queen songs, I wouldn't, never did and never called him the frontman for or of Queen. And these Q+PR recorded an album together, still not as the lead singer or replaced Freddie at all.
Yep, I noticed that twitter handle some time ago. But that doesn't make AL the singer for or of Queen.

Really? Not even delusional and jealous Brian calls it Queen. It’s Q+AL! Trust me, I’m surprised he’s not calling it Queen.

I would say he’s singing Queen songs with/for two members of Queen.

Adam is frontman for Queen. Making it Queen + Adam Lambert. I thought, that was clear.

This is not a jab at Adam at all. Brian and Roger have been using the Queen brand inappropriately for quite some time IMHO.

I understood your criticism (actually yesterday already) as one towards Brian and Roger very well. And I get, where you’re coming from. But to me, it’s still Queen. Not the original one, a newer version, if you want to call it that. As long as they don’t play new songs, they aren’t anything else but Queen.

When does it stop being Queen? If Brian quits or dies could Roger continue on as Queen? To me it’s ridiculous to think that part of something is Queen no matter what they play.

It‘s their band, so their decision. But I somehow doubt, that one of them will go on as Queen, if one of them quits.
Another question: Would you call it Queen, if John was still playing with them?
