I love Queen, they are my favorite EVER, but it isn't Queen without half of the members. Brian and Roger are NOT Queen. They have even said they are all one part of a whole, they don't want it to be Freddie Mercury and Queen. They wanted it to be the full band. John Deacon has retired and is still alive but I'm sorry, even though I may be a HUGE fan, it isn't Queen with just the two of them.
Freddie not around anymore but the rest of the band are. Still not the same without him. - mneilan
