    Default Queen

    Well the previous threads have all died and been archived, so I had to make a new one. Here we discuss only about Queen's music and things somewhat related to that. But I don't want to hear anything related to Mercury's drug using or whether he was a gay or not or any crap like that. It's like the same thing as talking BS 'bout Jackson' skin or the child molestation accusations. I'm pretty sure many of you wouldn't start that crap even if I hadn't mention it, but we're just humans and we aren't always thinking so brightly.

    Here's a short bio:
    Queen is an English rock band formed in 1970. The members of the band were Freddie Mercury (vocals), Brian May (guitar), John Deacon (bass) and Roger Taylor (drums).
    The band is famous for their energetic live performances. It's also interesting that every one of them wrote songs and every one of them have wrote multiple hit songs.

    Nowadays, well, Freddie has passed away and John has left publicity. Brian and Roger form Queen+ with Paul Rodgers and they are releasing a new album. There's a freely downloadable single called Say It's Not True, you can download it here.


    And BTW Wikipedia has an interesting fact about a certain Queen album: Michael Jackson was a friend of Mercury's in the early 1980s and cited the Hot Space album as a driving influence behind the making of his 1982 album Thriller on which Mercury was originally scheduled to appear.

    I love Queen. ^_^ I have most of their studio albums, their 70s cds are my favs.

    Here are some of my favorite Queen albums:

    Sheer Heart Attack
    A Day At The Races
    A Night At The Opera
    News Of The World
    The Game
    Hot Space

    The one album I don't particularly care for is Innuendo. It's a bit overrated, IMO.

    Cool I haven't heard The Works yet, it's on my wish list, though.

    Queen in my personal opinion is the greatest band outside of the United States. Freddie was such a brilliant singer and song writer...IMO the true King Of Rock N Roll. No disrespect towards Elvis, he was good, but he didn't write his own material like Freddie did.

    I love all their music. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be "Let Me Live" or "Who Wants To Live Forever"

    Speaking of Freddie's (amazing) voice, who else loves that State of Shock demo with MJ?

    That's cool. Queen and Freddie are fantastic.

    Anyone like their song You Take My Breath Away?

    I love Queen. Since I've heard Living On My Own in early 90's. Freddie was one of the most talented singers ever.
