People, especially fans, tend to glorify someone who died young/unexpected.

Freddie is dead for over 20 years now and perhaps Brian and Roger are idealizing him in their memories? Or do you think they are faking the love and admiration? Some people on twitter said Brian cried during "Love of my life" - I think he is genuine in his feelings.



I think when an icon dies young....their life is glorified somewhat......

Most bands of that era had their ups & downs.....

Brian's love for Freddie is probably genuine ....I read he had cried as well during that song....



I do also believe....Brian & Roger have love and respect for Adam as well......

I feel sure they have enjoyed this experience with him

So hoping this Queenbert experience continues in some capacity in the future

It's just to good to let go

as for that.....Sucky review:

Again....another critic that really doesn't do the research.....

Haven't we learned even back in the day of Queen with Freddie....they always ran the music video of Bo Rap.....

And...didn't the guy research that Adam was crowned by Brian

Wish these critics would at least read up a little on the subject of their criticism


Anyway...the only critics that really matter are the people who buy the tickets

No, just the link is broken... Here:

http://www.thestar.com/entertainment/mu ... view.html#

Well, crap... It won't load...

Once you're on the "File Not Found", type "Queen Adam Lambert" in the search bar (top right), the first article is the one you want.


I have a strong negative reaction on the last line ' At the very least, you’ll enjoy Mercury in retrograde.' and the title. I think with these lines, he knew that it will attract many comments... and indeed it has. It could be this motivation to get more hits . Most of the 38 comments bombasted him that surely he was not there to appreciate the crowd cheers and enjoyment on top of the filled concert. But he is right when he said that Brian's solo should be shortened. It was 20 minutes. I would think 5 minutes should be enough (or too long still?) since he had so many solos during the songs.

The concert last night was incredible. I was up in the nosebleeds so the sound was amazing but I did feel too far away. I just got a ticket for the next Toronto show and was able to get first row in the lower bowl, not super close to the stage, but a lot better than the nosebleeds.

It's funny... I have kept my opinion to myself not having known of Queen in its heydays with Freddie, but I have read a few books on them and seen a few documentaries...

I wonder if Brian and Roger ever get tired of having to fawn over Freddie's memory ad nauseum. From what I have read/seen, Freddie was a diva in the worst sense of the word. He had mood swings, would claim he simply could not go on to do a show, only to get fawned over by the entourage and then giving in... Claiming ownership of songs (it mattered a lot back then because whoever 'wrote' a song, got the royalties and none of them were rich then)... Throwing temper tantrums backstage if a show didn't go to his satisfaction (whether technical or set malfunctions) and Brian was usually the one to calm down the waters with whomever Freddie had lashed out at.

John Deacon kind of stayed away from Freddie as much as he could in order to avoid the drama.

Freddie was an iconic singer but never let anyone forget it...

What a breath of fresh air for Brian and Roger to have Adam as their frontman... No diva drama, pure joy of entertaining, goes with the flow when something goes wrong, is very generous on stage with ALL the band members... So no, "Adam is no Freddie", and I bet that Brian and Roger bless their stars every morning that he isn't!!!!

Good for you for posting this! I just came across it...

I have a good friend (truth be told, an old boyfriend) and he reminds me of Freddie --larger than life, narcissistic, gorgeous at times. People who are more stable (like the rest of Queen) are very drawn to people like that, and they become part of the whole.

It's like Jim Morrison and the Doors. Freud would call it identification with the aggressor. I have another friend, the aforementioned's former partner, who still lights up whenever he speaks of him. It's like some people own all the "Chi" in a room. I think that Freddie was like that.

Not an unpopular post at all. I have seen many documentaries and read up about Freddie as well, and I totally agree with every word you say. It must be so refreshing for Roger and Brian, and they have alluded to it as well.
What a blessing for those guys in their mid 60s. Especially Brian who suffers from crippling depression at times.
