@runner70 you don't speak for all die hard fans. You dont speak for me. Maybe you are the greatest ever Queen fan, maybe, unlikely, but even if you are you cant speak for everyone. When I was watching Queen play live in the 70s and playing nothing but Queen records for weeks on end, (not healthy incidentally, other music can be good too) maybe you were doing more, maybe like me you travelled across Europe to see them play live because you couldn't get to local shows, maybe you are a bigger fan, but I have no idea how you measure it. but you don't speak for everyone. Truth is some fans who go waaay back think QAL is a travesty, Some don't. There is no right or wrong. It's just disagreeing. Which isn't to say some of the Adam Lambert love on here wouldn't be better served in an Adam Lambert forum, but your self righteousness must be tiring for you. It's got to the point where if I agree with you on any point in other non AL related forums on here I assume I must be wrong.

Presumably you are older than me because I was too young to see them in 73 to 76 I envy you if you went to the shows I couldn't. Punk passed me by, I was a Queen fan, absolutely the uncoolest thing a kid from Liverpool could be in late 70s. Yet here I am, 45 years later still a fan with a basement packed with memorabilia, which triggers great memories. But somehow not good enough a fan for you because I don't get irate at 2 members of a band I love playing their songs live on stage with a younger flamboyant gay man because the guy they'd like to be playing with is no longer alive.

Anyhow point is, stop being stuck so far up your own arse. You embarrass yourself. Do you behave like this in the real world? How about other non Queen related parts of the internet? I've said this before, but the argument that someone is a bigger fan because you like less of the music the band members have produced than other people do is asinine.

It's ok if you only like the band pre 1980, plenty of people agree, it's ok if you don't like anything post 1991 plenty agree with that too, but nobody is right. This is art. You cant be best at liking art, its all a fucking opinion.

I'm sorry I bit at the trolling, broke my own rule but I've typed a lot onto a fucking phone here so I'm pressing send.

There is a way to have a polite conversation and that is not what you get here. There are people like runner, to name just one, who make it impossible. I don't think fans of QAL and Adam are invading Queen boards. I stay out of there, but this thread of that board is for QAL and people who enjoy it should be able to discuss here. You guys who say all the ugly things are invading this thread. It is not like you don't have a slew of other places to post on the forum, but you have to come here and be unpleasant. That is no different than Fans on Queen's social media. And I think you forget that a lot of people consider QAL to be part of Queen now (people who are not die hard fans and just think because Brian and Roger are in QAL then it must be associated with Queen! What an idea, huh?) after all the tours of the last 7 years and don't realize they are not allowed there in your view. Roger and Brian release and make comments about QAL, so I guess it can be allowed on Queen's social media. They pretty much determine what is Queen related and QAL shows up there, so if you have a problem, I suggest you contact them. There is no problem with others not feeling QAL. I get it, but the nastiness is what I object to. You folks want to pretend there is no QAL and it didn't happen, but like anything else, Queens history has evolved and is different now. You can't pretend it is not so. As long as Roger and Brian are still Queen founding members, anything they do that includes Queen's music is still an offshoot of Queen, call it what you will. It is like someone divorcing or dying and the other person moves on, that is still the history of the individual even if it has changed over time.


I think you need to accept that Queen fans can and will post wherever they like on a Queen forum.

I think perhaps - for your own sake - you might be better off on a Lambert only forum as well.


Nice try but why should she or any of us go to a Lambert forum when we're fans of Queen and Queen with Adam. This is the QAL part of the forum and whether some Queen fans like it or not Adam is for the time being part of QAL and if we want to discuss the collaboration here that's perfectly fine, anyone not liking it is free to go to the Queen only part and if not they're probably best ignored for the most part. The only objective of the few like runner et al is to drive QAL fans away, sorry ain't happening.

@ ggo1

Totally agree, it's a pity we can't have reasonable discussions about the band without it turning into a war.

Silencing Queen fans that don't rate or can't stand Lambert is never going to happen.

Agreed. But silencing Queen fans who enjoy what they are now doing ain't happening either

And so you show your level of ignorance. Music is an art form, just cause you don't like it doesn't mean it's something else. Clever insult too... very original. Very witty, How did you think of it?

You're really not very bright are you? Must be hard for you having to read and understand cogent arguments. My sympathies for your struggles.

At no point did I argue nor suggest that I want Lambert fans silenced.


Absolutely, I wasn't suggesting you had. I was only making the point that there are Queen fans that fall into both camps, which is what I said and why I agreed with you and didn't direct my comment at you personally.

The thing that some people don't get is that it's entertainment. People will either like it or not. Neither is right or wrong, it's only personal opinion.

I know long standing Queen fans who rebelled agains Q+PR, looking back two or three wish they'd gone to a gig. I also know fans who have been to Q+AL gigs who haven't thought much of it and some who have.

Freddie was such a huge presence I have often thought what if Mr Bad Guy had been huge and he'd left the band and been replaced I wonder what the reaction would have been back then.

Queen fans wanted Queen music and Brian, Roger and John to all die the day Freddie died. They can’t stand that the show has gone on! Unbelievable!



From page 13 of this thread. Unbelievable how heartless and thoughtless SweetCaroline can be. Proof right here.

Well Brian and Roger are still performing and that makes it all right. The show is still spectacular whether or not Freddie is part of it. It is still Queen music and half the band is still performing. It must be so hurtful for them to see crap remarks like that as if Freddie were 100% of the band. They still get the crowd in a frenzy just so know. The shows I have been to have rocked and people are dancing and singing and having a wonderful time.

I doubt very much that Brian ever feels it was all Freddie. You must be smoking something to think such a thought. There was no Queen without all four and I think Brian figured
pretty prominently. He also wrote many of the popular songs and his guitar playing makes it Queen music. I love how you always downplay everyone else. Well, the band is as big as ever, playing around the world to ever more fans clamoring to hear them and to rave reviews, which is not what they got years ago. Somebody must be enjoying them. I don't care if you don't, as there are millions that do. And it wouldn't be a show without Adam. Adam is getting more and more acclaim singing with them as he does a fabulous job. His singing is impeccable.

Yup, the shows are spectacular and well balanced. Just enough Freddie to satisfy everyone! But I hope they keep “Machines” in the set list. I like the part where his image is up there bigger than life and you hear him singing the chorus!

Might tell your buddy SweetCaroline that, who thinks and says Freddie overshadowed Brian.
I guess you didn't check with her before you made this post.

I never said that, Holly. You do not need to put untrue remarks in my mouth, OK? You people always spin the remarks in a way that usually wasn't meant by the poster.
