Hi Caroline I think the abuse they you get on some of your opinions is out of order.You are obviously a very big fan of Queen and AL and that's fine.What you must remember is that Freddie was easily the best front man in the history of rock music.He was also easily in the top ten singers in the history of rock music aswell.Adam is nowhere near that and he never will be.So there is no comparison between the two and that is where you come unstuck as I think you are comparing the two of them.Freddie made Queen what they are he is a rock icon a hero to many and when he passed on ,to millions of people it was like losing a close family member.I for one think of Freddie every day and have never got over his passing, this is why you have to be careful with what you say Caroline and getting into heated exchanges on this site will not make you many friends.Anyway enjoy the concerts that you go to ,the set list looks quite interesting and a Happy Christmas to you.

philip storey, thank you! I am well aware that Freddie is an icon and #1 on every list out there of best male singers, both rock and in general. I agree that he is!

What happens is that Adam gets attacked for what he does on stage and what he wears, etc. etc. etc. If I or anyone else mention what Freddie did on stage or wore while performing, it comes across as a comparison and it shouldn’t. They are two different men with two different voices, personalities and mannerisms.

I’m thrilled that Adam has been able to let his voice be heard in the powerful Queen anthems that are so amazing and unmatched in music history.

No one is expecting Adam or anyone else to unseat Freddie from his well earned throne as both the king of all music!

Thing is, SweetCaroline you claim AL gets attacked a little too much. It's like the one who has cried wolf at this point, because you have said AL is attacked even when he hasn't been that's what happens. Heck, you thought and posted people on QOL didn't accept Lambert because he is gay for crying out loud.
You have spammed, promoted, and defended AL any chance you get. If people make a comment you don't like you pretty much think they are haters, negative etc. If people don't go or watch the Q+AL concerts they arent real Queen fans you say.
That's proof you aren't careful or even think before you post on Queen boards. It's done to big up AL and get his name out there, even a tweet saying how he smells for pity sake.
Yep, you are thrilled AL's voice is the one heard alright, as long as his voice and only his voice is the one singing Queen songs. Like I had always thought, AL is the only one who matters to you, oops ,you let slip your true thoughts here. So much for the bullcrap you thought he helped kept Freddie's and Queen's legacy and music live.
As for comparisons, you have compared Freddie and AL, literally countless times by now.
Freddie hasn't been replaced, nor is he the new singer for Queen, but you rush here to post articles saying that very thing.
No one could replace Freddie and it's impossible to replace Freddie. I think if you watched more about him, you might just realise that.
You aren't a Queen fan or Freddie fan at all in my books. You are only trying to convince yourself.

Got figure, you haven't watched it in awhile. When you were asked by Saint Jiub what Queen DVDs you own, you never mentioned Rainbow. Hmm.
Why are you linking to videos of Stone Cold Crazy?

Icy, I don’t want a conversation with you because it is never ending. It is annoying and exhausting to have every word analyzed over and over again. It is very strange that you remember everything I have said from 5 or 8 years ago. When people were mocking Adam on a Queen board as a ladyboy and other derogatory names, that was not about his sexuality? It was shocking to me that Freddie fans would do that. My God, give it up already! It is like having a gnat constantly buzzing around your face and no matter how many times you swat it, it won’t go away. I don’t do that to you. Post about Freddie and not about me.

No, you don't want a different discussion at all, unless it matches your views 100%. That's basically it.
As for remembering your posts, pretty easy to do, especially since you come here to post about what goes on elsewhere and to come here to blame even for what goes on elsewhere. Your posts about QOL not accepting AL because he is gay, isn't from even two years ago. Remember that SweetCaroline, you had a year long ban following that. But that's something else you blame me for of course.
In the last 3 or 4 months here, you have made the statement that Queen fans wanted Brian Roger and John to die the very day Freddie passed away.
Your judgement of Queen fans is despicable to say the least.
As for lady boy comments, I think you are getting confused with a poster here.
As for the Queen dvds you say you own, that's been recently too, just a couple months or do ago Saint Jiub asked you about that. Rainbow wasn't mentioned.
I remember what you post, because you can't and do not own the crap that you post. You were flat out wrong to say that, but all you do is try to back track. The least you could do is own your shit, admit that you were wrong, be sorry, but you aren't. You think you are justified in what you do.
While you tell people that I remember what you posted, make sure you tell them them what you have posted as well. I think you are in such a rush to post and to promote and defend Lambert that you are willing to say anything at this point. You just can't own your shit that you post. You are the one who should give up the horrible, awful agenda you have about Queen fans. You never should have took it the low bar you did. My God, some of things you have said is appalling. It's worse than a gnat constantly buzzing around, it would seem you have an agenda about Queen fans, but here you are pretty much promoting Lambert and defending him.
Do you think before you post, on Queen boards, it seems you do without a care, and your own words you do much of it on purpose.
And that's why you are on Queen boards. It's not because you are are a Queen fan or Freddie fan. You could at least be honest here. I do post about Freddie, you rarely do unless you are clutching you pearls and comparing AL to Freddie.

I can't figure out why she lies about it. Holy fuck, she said what she owns in early December. Apologies because I thought she said that a couple of months ago instead of just earlier this month.
Good to know someone lies. How desperate and sad. Wants to be liked so badly, she has to lie time and time again. Wow, she certainly trips over herself in her own posts.
@SweetCaroline nothing in this world could ever make me think you love Freddie and Queen, let alone being a fan. I would have had respect for you if you said you didn't own Rainbow, but you had to lie. Why lie about it?

There was no new album yet. It's hopefully coming next year. As far as I remember his single and EP charted OK in the UK but flopped in the USA.

For once Icy doesn't remember the nasty names that were mentioned on QOL in relation to Adam's sexuality. Some of FD's remarks, for example, were quite out of line. I know I posted more than once that I couldn't understand why Freddie as a gay man got a pass for doing some of the same things Adam does, but Adam was called out for the same type of thing in a homophobic way. That was an issue on QOL a few years back

I have no idea about wishing anyone in the band dead, but SC said she was merely being facetious. I do think many of the die hards and you people on here wish that Brian and Roger had gone to stagnate in some dark corner of the world and just given up the idea of being Queen. That thought isn't a whole lot better as it is tantamount to "dying' if you can't do what you were meant to do. I don't mean that literally, but many of you hate the idea of them carrying on as QAL, which I don't understand at all. If you loved Queen, you should be happy that they are living out their dream still! That is what Roger and Brian were born to do!!

Who care what a fan owns and knows about some useless Queen trivia. If someone owns their music and loves it and loves the band members and supports what they did before and now, how do you people have the nerve to say they aren't Queen fans? You have never seen a concert or anything like that, Icy, what makes you the perfect fan who can always call out other people. I am telling you that Freddie would be mortified by your nasty behavior to people who just want to enjoy Queen music in the old and new form and be happy about it. There should be no problem with that and this thread is the place to profess that enjoyment, not to be called out as a liar and all the other crap that doesn't matter and doesn't belong here. It is spam for as often as you repeat yourself and way worse than bringing over some tweets, etc. I for one am sick of reading your nasty notes to SC and to any other Glambert who doesn't fall in with your views. RC is very careful how she says things, but even she wasn't too happy with your crap the last few days. Then when people have other view points you go on with the death of your dad, (which was horrible, and I give you hugs for that), but that can't be a constant justification for being so nasty. You always backtrack to whining poor you. Other people have lots of unfortunate and awful things in their lives, but you can't take it out on people you don't know ,who are in no way to blame for any misfortune. It does sound like you have had a tough life, but you might get a lot more sympathy if you could spread the kindness around. Does it really matter if some on here love Adam and like to share things about him? You may have noticed that on the Queen Official Site Adam things are popping up. Interesting!! Brian and Roger do think he is a member of the family now, call it what you will, but it is officially OK to be on the Adam and Freddie train. One doesn't detract from the other.

BQT8,
I don't remember numbers. I think top 30s in the UK after one TV performance but the USA's statistics was dire. Adam lost a lot of US fans about a year ago ( over 300000 active followers in a space of a couple of days) after his political stance on right to bear Arms and gay rights - so no surprise there.

Call the wahbulance over your butthurt over AL. You and SweetCaroline took offense over the least little thing regarding AL, even as something as simple as some people thinking he didn't sing certain Queen songs well.

SweetCaroline wasn't being facetious, I don't believe that for a second. Go back to read her posts at that time. She tried to backtrack saying she was being facetious...and once again you defend her. I'm not buying it, I've seen her outbursts too many times. I'd have respect for her if she said she posted it in the heart of the moment. All she did was try to backtrack.

Sure I love Queen. I don't like everything they did and what Brian and Roger currently do, it doesn't make me less than a fan.

The date Freddie passed away isn't some useless trivia. Some people spend thousands to go to Montreux to reflect about Freddie there. As for me, I usually play the music and watch dvds and videos, and I light a candle. I have some great memories of me and my father listening to Queen and Freddie, so the 24th this time around was honestly a little more emotional. Same as yesterday when it was my birthday, I shed a few tears, because he always teased me on my birthday. Judge me for missing some people while you never have made a comment about Freddie on the 24th. You were here on the date last month, picking a fight with me.
I'm actually more than aware other people have tragedy and unfortunate things happen in their lives. And I don't post for sympathy. SweetCaroline is the one who let it be known in the last few weeks that she has no empathy whatsoever for me. If someone like Brancelli can show me compassion, tell you what, that says so much about a person he is. Even Runner had a few kind words, even you did. SweetCaroline didn't. I would not wish losing a loved one and watching a loved one die on anyone, seriously it keeps me up all hours and breaks my heart. No, I'm not saying goes that for sympathy.
Some things that is posted about AL is better off on adamtopia. Take the recent tweet about AL smells. The fact he recently sp.it with his boyfriend...Nothing to do with anything being discussed here, but SweetCaroline sure felt it important enough to bring here.
