    It wouldn't have taken long before Queen beat the Beatles and the Rolling Stones in terms of weeks in the charts etc. Plus which band has the largest audience for a concert hmmm? How many countries did it contain hmmmm? People only blab on about hte Beatles because they were the first great band of their time around so they get the name. Bit like Hendrix with the guitar really. Oh, and every member of Queen happened to be very academic outside of music, which only present day band members can dream of.

    b*llocks, if you're talking about record sales, the Beatles have sold more than a billion records, something only they and Elvis can boast, and so what if every member of Queen were 'academic outside of music'. I really couldn't care less, it makes no difference to the music.

    And now we have people like Westlife and Aqua and Spice Girls and..... :rolleyes:

    again, that's a load of b*llocks, like we didn't have teenie pop and novelty acts in the 60's, 70's and 80's? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Yeah, Queen are classic. Love 'em. Brian May is a god on guitar. But Freddie Mercury is a complete legend. Favourite song: I Want to Break Free. What a video as well!

    In some ways queen were better than the beatles and the stones. Queen stayed together longer than the beatles even though Freddie died, and the stones were very underground and had a required taste, the only reson people like them now is cos they are legends. Queen on the other hand have been consistant and forever tried to better themselves. (In my opinion.)
    Agreed.

    No? Do you think that Freddie's influence of art had no bearings on any of the music at all including stage costumes and music videos which then in turn affect other things? At least they wouldn'y be stacking shelves at a supermarket or on the dole if they never made it as a music band. :rolleyes:

    At least it's not in your face all of the time having a bunch of townies sing one song and can't play any instruments whatsoever. :rolleyes: The only *******s is the state of the music industry it is now.
