Any fans of that great British band here? How do you like the newest incarnation of the group, sans John Deacon at the bass and with Paul Rodgers as lead vocals, taking the place of the late Freddie Mercury?

Opinions, please. Cool

I must say I liked the "new" Queen. Of course not the same as before, but thys guy Rodgers does not try to imitate Freddie Mercury, and that's a start.

They play mostly songs written by the surviving members of Queen, with a couple of mandatory exceptions like "bohemian rhapsody" (they play the video of Freddie Mercury's last live performance of that song), "We will rock you / we are the champions" (no Queen concert would be complete without them) and a very nice song called "Love of my life". Also some covers to songs like "Can't get enough of your love" and "All right now".

They are stilled called "Queen", but they now add a "+ Paul Rodgers" to the album title. As far as I know, there is a live recording made out of a couple of their concerts in Sheffield, called "Return of the champions". Good stuff.

Superyo, in case you're interested, they're having a European tour this year. Clin d'oeil http://www.queenpluspaulrodgers.com/ They'll be in Paris september 24.
