    Default Any Queen fans here?

    Been listening to their songs recently...used to remember by their 'We are the Champions'...but now realized they got so many other songs like 'Somebody to love', 'I was born to love you', 'Those were the days of my life' etc.........wah starting to like them as much as Eagles........

    Bohemian Rhapsody
    Another one bites the dust
    Killer queen
    Fat bottom girls
    Bicycle race
    We will rock you
    We are the champions
    Under Pressure
    Radio gaga
    I want to break free
    Friends will be friends
    The show must go on
    A Winter's tale


    RIP Freddie Mercury

    Their tribute concert in wembley in 92 was one of the best i think? Many band including G N' R and Metallica played. At that time, poor student, no $$$ to buy the double cassette or CD.

    Well, I don't like how the Eagles have mellowed and become so sappy. In a way, early death can freeze a band in all its glory.

    My favourite Queen song is "Now I'm Here".

    I like the Eagles, too. My favourite is "One of These Nights". An amazing play of hard and soft, yin and yang.

    But how to compare two bands? The Eagles was always the more laidback band. Queen was more flamboyant and in-your-face.

    I heard Queen is still performing albeit with a new lead singer? Is it true? Even if true , the magic just isn't there anymore...

    Yep, Freddie had a short fling with his drummer, Roger Taylor.

    Paul Rodgers is the current lead singer. Watch him perform in the DVD 'Queen - Return of the champions'. He used to sing lead for Free and Bad Company. He may not be Freddie for sure but he sure does justice to Queen's songs. I think he's just singing lead for Queen and not replacing Freddie.
