There's thousands of people that sound like Adam.
It's maybe possible to sound similar to Adam as we all can see it is possible to find some singers who sound just like Freddie. But it's highly unlikely that any singer who sounds like Adam could pull what Adam does in a live setting, YAFF. It's not only about the vocals - over the last 5 years he's grown into a brilliant performer.
Also, Queen + AL is only happening because there's a high demand from the fans for the Queen + AL collaboration, not the other way round. No one's forcing the shows and there was hardly any advertisement for the tour. So I don't think your opinion represents the Queen fans' majority - the majority of this forum members more like (30 - 40 people bubble). Considering Brian's health, there might be no more live gigs at all. Would it make you feel content?
Content? I think you misunderstand me. I've been against anything the band has done as "Queen plus" because all it really is "Queen minus Freddie, John". Sure I find it annoying but in the end it doesn't matter to me. I'm content with Queen music. Nobody can't take that away and there's still new product coming out.
I'm not part of the band and I don't feel entitled in anyway. I just express my opinion. In some ways I feel like I have to defend Freddie against disloyal comments from Brian & Roger. Because in some bands you just can't replace the lead singer especially when the singer is the face of the band. Same with The Beatles, Led Zep, Rolling Stones and many others. Instead of calling in Queen + it should be something like The Queen Revue with AL
But I am fully aware it's just my twee opinion. It's something to do. I do represent the majority of diehard Queen fans nearly all of which aren't on this site. Most are older and can't be bothered with "shitty little forums". Nobody can take Queen 1973-1995 away from me. And to be honest I've been compelled to be more active on forums to distract my mind from the fact my country elected a bigoted imbecile as leader. It is truly depressing. That is something that takes away my contentment.
