Biography

United Kingdom (2004 – 2009)

In November 2004, the first annual UK Music Hall Of Fame induction ceremony took place and as “Queen” was inducted, surviving active members Brian May and Roger Taylor (without bassist John Deacon who retired from the music business in 1997) play the band’s double A-side hits, “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions”, complete with former “Free” and “Bad Company” frontman Paul Rodgers. They closed the show with Free’s classic, “All Right Now”, with help from the group “The Polyphonic Spree”. This performance hinted at the possibility of the return of rock’s regal performers after an 18 year hiatus.

By January of 2005, Roger Taylor admitted to German television that they would be touring Europe in the spring and summer of that year, under the name of “Queen + Paul Rodgers”. The full line up included original “Queen” members May (guitar, vocals) and Taylor (drums, vocals) as well as former “The Pretenders” and “Brian May Band” member Jamie Moses (guitar, vocals), former “Blue Oyster Cult” bassist Danny Miranda (bass, vocals), Queen’s 1986 tour keyboard player Spike Edney (keyboards, vocals) and Paul Rodgers (vocals, occasional guitar). Over the course of 2005, the band played in over a dozen European countries as well as the Aruba Festival, 4 dates in Japan, 2 shows in the U.S.A., and 1 show in South Africa The band embarked upon a large scale tour of Northern America during Spring 2006, hitting 22 venues in the U.S.A. and 2 in Canada.

    Охуительнейший проект, меланхолический блюзовый альбом, написанный специально для поздней осени

    Queen without John Deacon, Freddy Mercury and John Lennon, or ultimate executive authority over the government but with Paul Rodgers and Chuck Norris is not The Rolling Stones or Queen. It is a very interesting thought, though. Anyway, I've just listened to the album The Cosmos Rocks. I'm sorry to say, but it sucks like a black hole. It's not even close to the level of the 'real' Queen: the songs lack that great Queen signature. Freddy, we miss you...

    дело не в том, что это не Queen (хотя так и называется), а в том, что это халтура.

    ポールのシャウトが意外とQUEEN楽曲に合う。 Cosmos Rockも良かった。 また活動してほしい。

    У Пола Роджерса хороший, сильный голос. Этот проект для меня как будто "Tribute to Queen", интересно было послушать любимые хиты в новом виде :) И не понимаю тех людей, кто пишет что Queen с Полом Роджерсом - это не Queen. Конечно нет :) Успокойтесь уже!

    Блин, вот привязались! Queen без Фредди не то, Леннона с роллингами припаяли... Речь идет о новой группе, не умирать же выжившим музыкантам после смерти великого вокалиста ж, все кушать хотят.
