We already know how you feel about it. I have read the same post again and again and again between here and Queenzone. It is like Groundhog Day. Find something new to complain about for a change. How many times are you going to post the EXACT SAME THING!!!!

I can say it here as well that he messed up the lyrics, firstly because it's a fact he messed it up, secondly, I can and I will state how that came across IMO, thirdly, it's not up to you or almost anyone what I post about here or elsewhere.

You might want to take a look at the rules on back seat moderating. She has as much right as anyone else to postwhat she wants to zero you, as long as it remains within the rules and guidelines.

Must be why they think Luther Vandoss is such a great rock singer. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I honestly can't figure out why they added AL solo songs at all. GT and WWFM weren't new songs, TF is just a mess of a song and even Brian and Roger couldn't make that more palatable, IMO.
Yea, I guess I do wonder about it especially considering there were so much more Queen songs that could have been given the chance to be played instead.

? Dear icy, I have the feeling, you aren’t interested in the answer of that question at all. In the first interview, that I linked here to answer your question from Sunday, Brian answered that. And in the third link ( Adam interview), he answeref that as well. You said, you knew the interviews. Why are you asking the same question again? :roll:

I don't remember everything to do with AL, or even Brian and Roger for that matter in all they talk about, was I supposed to know it by heart or something? And I still can wonder about why that was added instead of Queen song/s I hoped to hear. Does that explain it better?

Let me just say: If I was wondering about something as much as you seem to do in this case, I would try to find the answer from the ones, who know it (the band). And they did talk about it, more than once. And you don’t have to know, the interviews by heart. If you listened just to a few of them before a tour, it would be more than possible that they answered that question. If not, several people already told you about their answers.

And besides, I could be wrong in the above post, and Brian might not have answered it in the linked interview (but somewhere else). Adam did, though (see:I .don’t know, what was exactly said in which interview. I had listened to them on Sunday to find answers to a few of your -and maybe others here were interested in it too- . And particularly Brian explained in comparison to every other interview I‘ve listened to before, in a rather detailed way, how they work with Adam.)

I have watched and read plenty of interviews from the guys in the past few years. I honestly don't remember every little or big detail mainly because there have been so many interviews, it's hard to keep track. Apologies for that
I'm a Queen fan first. I think putting an AL solo song in the set list when there are many more Queen songs I would rather have heard than GT, TF, and WWFM. No apologies for my feelings about that. I did like Brian and Roger's vibe with GT, TF was crap even with the Brian and Roger vibe to it, WWFM...meh, even though that's one of my favorite AL solo songs.
For me to think DOOL, IL and SYW or even some other Queen song could have been performed instead...I will always wonder about the choices and decisions regarding that, especially if this is near the end of Q+AL.

I found this interview with Brian accidentally and don’t know if it has been posted previously. It took place in Lithuania one month before the EU tour started in November:

Personally, I think that the decision to play DOOL lies mostly (or even completely?) by Roger. He‘s singing it and to me, this section of the concert is „his solo part“. And he sings, what he likes. I don’t think that playing an AL- song had anything to do with it. Seemingly Roger simply preferred AKOM this time. In 2015 he sang DOOL at most of the UK- concerts by the way. So I would say, that was a change in the setlist (although a small one), so that Roger‘ Fans in the UK get a different song from him this time.
IL and SYW were not dropped for an AL-song as well. These were all together played in the beginning of the US-Tour. Brian explained, why they were dropped. Like it or not, (and you don’t. ;, I know). I‘m very sure, putting an AL-song in or out has NO affection on any Queen-song being played. Beware: when they dropped WWFM in the UK, no song was added.

Of course it's likely down to Roger deciding what he sings. I know I'd rather hear DOOL than AKOM, because for me DOOL is the perfect way to pay tribute to Freddie and John. I can imagine it's a emotional song to sing, but I still wish it was played more than only twice. I make no bones about it, I loved DOOL so much it was always a highlight for me.
Either way it's looked at, some of my favorite songs were dropped, and there was usually enough time to place an AL solo song in the set list.
Queen has a vast, amazing catalogue. It's why I watch and listen to the shows, plus to see Brian and Roger play live. To me, it's a shame that the set list was not so dangerous or even risky after all.
