MisterCosmicc, I think I said streaming numbers! I'd include iTunes there as well. Check it out on QOL when it's back working, very interesting statistics. Of course the majority of streaming came from younger GP, new fans discovering Queen and checking their music out after/before tour. The BoRha and Don't stop me now and the Greatest Hits album were obvious winners after every tour date.


Billboard has a streaming chart =) If it's not top 100, I don't want to hear about it.

On US Billboard, Queen are currently at #25 on the US Billboard. To chart on the Billboard Top 200, all figures are compiled. Physical, digital, and streaming, too.

You should read into it. A hit on the iTunes chart isn't a big deal unless you're a small-time, hardly known musician/band.



Say's it all - first of all "if it's not top 100 I don't want to know" = the only thing that matters is chart position hence Cardi B et al must be amazing artists, I assume you listen to her and her ilk all the time then? Thankfully I'm more discerning and actually care if somethings good to listen to, I don't need a chart position to tell me what's good, there's a ton of utter garbage gets in the top 100 that I'd never listen to in a million years, really can't believe and adult would claim the only thing that matters is being top 100 smh.

The itune chart is a measure of how popular an artists music is at any given time since it's a rolling chart so if an artist is constantly increasing on the chart whenever there's an appearance etc it's a sign more people are discovering them or interested in their new music or checking them out etc.

Queen played on a legendary television show (SNL) that has run continuously since 1975 (44 years).

That is completely different than AL performing on a 3rd rate talk show.

Adam on The Original High-Tour in London. Yes, great memories! Hammersmith was filled to the max.

My favorite part of the tour was the medley of Runnin/Chokehold and Sleepwalker.

and For your Entertainment was so much fun as well.

(While watching it I noticed that there were a lot of photographs standing right in front of the stage for the first couple of songs...).

Yep, pretty much cheating. Nothing new, I'm just shocked it's still being done.


Dear god how many times are you gonna go on about that? Who gives a crap it will make zero diffence anyway since the numbers won't be counted on charts, the only reason they do it is to make sure he tours solo, more streams means the promoters will assume more interest for a tour and there's a chance his music will get on playlists if there's more streams but it already did get on playlists at the start so that won't make much difference anyway.

LOL. If AL had higher numbers, SweetCaroline would be crowing and gloating about it. When the numbers aren't so good, it's another story altogether for SweetCaroline. * crickets*

What's sad is that Adam Worshippers still couldn't get Supah Pow-Wah to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 through cheating! =)


What's even sadder is that a supposed grown up still thinks the billboard 100 is the measure of talent - lil nas, beiber, eilish, lil baby, chris brown, dababy, dua lipa - yeah so many legends and icons on billboard, whatever will Adam do without it. And the fact you think Supah Pow Wah is the only song Adam's got out there.

:-O Come on rockchic, never have I once said that it was Brian's and Roger's fault that Freddie died. Why even "ask" me that? No, it's not their fault that Freddie died. I don't even know why you would ask me or anyone else that, sorry you lose any point to you were trying to make.


Because constantly harping on about Adam riding coat tails, using them to further his career or making money off it etc etc all implies he shouldn't be doing it and by default they shouldn't be touring with him. Sick of all the fans who seem to think only Freddie mattered and Brian & Roger should curl up and drink cocoa since they'll never be Queen again since 91.



IMO, AL is riding on coattails. It's known he makes pretty good money from the shows. Yep, more money than his solo career without any doubt.
However, that does not mean that I blame Brian and Roger for Freddie's death. Seriously, what the actual hell.
And I've never said only Freddie mattered in Queen. Queen were four members, Freddie, Brian Roger and John.
I'm tired of AL fans and the Glamberts saying things about me and twisting things, some of which I've never would think, let alone say. For the record, no I don't blame Brian and Roger for Freddie's death. Unbelievable you would "ask" and try to pin that on me.


Why is it that every glambert attempts rides your ass and puts words in your mouth?

Every other AL critic is treated reasonably or ignored.

Not putting words in her mouth she openly says Adam's riding coat tails all the time both here and on QOL. And if you read my original comment I wasn't "Saying" she blames them for Freddie's death it was a rhetorical question meaning it's not their fault, it's a euphemism as I've already explained.

And why shouldn't he make money from the shows, he works hard and if not for him there wouldn't be shows (they need a singer) so of course he gets paid well but no one knows the percentage of the money he makes that comes from QAL as opposed to other sources, he doesn't just tour with Queen he does plenty of projects of his own and not just music so his earnings are far from all Queen related.

I asked that as a question, nowhere did I say you'd actually said that but IMO a lot of fans comments make it seem like Brian & Roger should have thrown in the towel when Freddie died as if they shouldn't want to still do what they love and IMO it's not their fault their career as a band was cut short and it shouldn't stop them still touring if that's what makes them happy.

I'm sure glamberts are just as sick of the petty contest a few Queen fans have got going on constantly putting the guy down for every single thing he does - he can't do a thing right apparently whether with or without Queen, it's always the wrong thing, wrong music, wrong tv show to appear on, wrong thing to be singing on said tv show, wrong project, wrong people to work with on this or that project, wrong timing of releasing a song, wrong song to release etc etc.


Reasonable post, rockchic.

I bet if SweetCaroline started using her brain, stopped posting AL solo posts, stopped spamming, and limited her QAL section posts to less than five posts, the QAL section would be immensely less unpleasant.

Of course, Jazz+ (Gerry) and runner will never stop posting their redundant drivel ... so there is not much hope.

Excellent post rockchic. Cosmic spams more about AL's solo carrer than SweetCaroline.

Cosmic - Is it possible that you might stop posting about AL's solo career? Please.

Yes it's a Queen board but this section is Queen and Adam related and since Adam is for the time being is part of the Queen family (B & R's words) then it should be ok to post about him.

I don't quite get why my saying he is riding on coattails so insulting or offensive. I'm not saying you are like that, maybe annoyed. But why?
I think the worst thing you ever "asked" me if I fault Brian and Roger for Freddie's death. And I don't know if you read my posts on QOL, or have interacted with me over there, it's something I've never posted or even felt. But that will be likely be something that someone else will try to pin on me, like almost every thing else she can think of. Rhetorical question to you maybe, but it's not a good one no offense.
There we have it, Glamberts and AL fans ride my ass because I say AL is riding on coattails of Freddie's and Queens's legacy. Wow, ok.

What I do mind is when Adam Worshippers thinks that Adam is the reason for Freddie's continuing popularity, or that Adam has revived Queen, or that Adam keeps Freddie's legacy alive. Thats untrue, because Freddie only gets more popular as the years go by. He always did. Fairytales of yesterday will grow, but never die.


You are correct in saying that Adam did not revive Queen.

Obviously it was the biopic movie that helped revive Queen.

Even though AL is extremely polarizing (QPR was hardly divisive), QAL touring helped set the stage for Queen's revival after the biopic.
