    What the actual fuck?

    I wouldn't even called Queen a rock band, more of a pop group really.

    It's well know it's his favourite band. It was also the biggest star during the Freddie's Tribute

    ACDC, Queen and Van Halen in their prime=
    THE HOLY TRINITY (plus Ozzy with Randy Rhoads and Sabbath with Dio). There was no better than that.

    I think Queen was the best band of all time. AC/DC is my favorite, but I'd put Queen as #1. They practically took on every genre and nailed it. Wrote countless classics. And Freddie. What else is there to say

    Queen's craftmanship is pretty unmatched in rock/pop history.
    Like mati said; they nailed every genre. Queen at Live Aid killed every act that day

    Besides Queen, Axl also was a big Elton John and Nazareth fan IIRC.

    LOVE Queen! Freddie Mercury was the shiznit. His voice and vocal range was amazing. But then there was his showmanship while performing. He was simply one of the greats.

    Queen were always a rock'n'roll band, even behind their poppiest songs there is Brian May blasting power chords, 12 bar blues riffs and great solo's

    For me queen 70's early 80's brilliant . For me they dropped the ball after that and never really found it again . Even the attempts at rock after that didn't really work . I did see them again a couple of times with Paul Rogers which I thought was pretty good .

    Paul was fucking great. His version of Show Must Go On is incredible. The Quee'ns version nowadays it's an incredible joke with that little boy singin for them. I love the more macho version with Paul. But of course No Freddie No Queen.

    I wouldn't go quite as far as Miss 'T (nothing unusual there) but I have never really understood the attraction of Queen. I am probably in need of some education but I find very few of the songs I know particularly affecting (Days Of Our Lives/Love Of My Life excluded). Freddie obviously a brilliant performer with a magnificent voice. Good singalong stuff in terms of songs.

    I'm another who isn't at all into Queen...however I can sense they're an iconic and talented group, just not my cup o' tea.

    Suppose it's a bit like U2...I've no time for them, but I guess it's fair to say they're a good band.

    I never got U2 . I had some cracking ACDC V U2 arguments back in the 80's

    Always liked this ..... Whats the difference between Bono and God? God doesn't walk the streets of Dublin thinking he's Bono

    Never fully got Queen either. Haven't extensively checked them out though.

    Bless Freddie Mercury.

    Try and explore. Maybe it will give you a new view.

    I think Queen were a little to studio friendly for good old Rock and roll but what they created in the 70's was very interesting and a very good live band

    saw them 4 times with freddie. one of the greatest opener i've ever seen was the tour 82. getting goosebumps. The "flash Theme" came from a tape for around 4 minutes with moving spots until the big intro blast. 2 h pure rnr. keep yourself alive, now i'm here, we will rock you, sheer heart attack, tie your mother down etc.

    Freddie was the best musician ever i think. Fantastic showman. But Queen apart from a handful of songs never really got me. I understand how great they were in almost every genre, but I'm a fellow with a one track mind and it's too much for me. Same goes for Iron Maiden for me. Not my cup of tea, but excellent show and real vibration.

    I agree with Axl, Freddie Mercury was the greatest ever frontman. He had charisma, showmanship and an amazing voice.
    Queen were an awesome band and have a catalogue of amazing songs.

    I respect Queen and certainly they are a great band but not for my taste (and I tried...), perhaps too much joyousness in their music. Freddie is one of the greatest singers of all time but I’d take Bon Scott any day.

    Uniquely talented band members though, no-one's quite like them.

    Aside from Fred, what about Brian's guitar built out of an old fireplace, then going through a Vox to get his sound?

    Your Queen/U2 comparison resonates with me. I own Day At The Races & Sheer Heart Attack by the former and Joshua Tree & Achtung Baby by the latter - all four are great albums which I enjoy but for some reason I've never felt the need to explore further.

    Nothing wrong with being a casual. I'm a casual U2 fan too.

    I do remember quite liking hearing some of those famous U2 ones in the 80s....but somehow just not for me, and so when Bono became an irritant soon afterwards, that kind of killed-off any hope!

    A thread on big classic bands which people somehow don't like at all would be interesting (I think I opened one for songs once).

    Agree Bono is annoying but it's Edge's band really and as an opening trio Where The Streets Have No Name, Still Haven't Found and With Or Without you is pretty world-beating in any language. So many bands from Coldplay down have tried to emulate Joshua Tree for widescreen, stadium rock, none have come close. Also, unlike 99 percent of 80s rock they don't sound dated at all, which might be Eno & Lanois' achievement as much as U2's.

    The world is yet to see an AC/DC Hollywood movie, whereas in the case of U2, Led Zeppelin, the Stones or the like, a documentary shall always suffice. Here only with the difference that, unlike in the case of Queen or The Doors, where the inspiration for such comes from the obvious single hero and on whom it is focused, that in the case of AC/DC it would be centered around the entire phenomenon of the band as a whole and it's music.

    There's been a Bon Scott movie touted before but the band weren't interested and I don't think any major studios were interested either.

    The Queen film came with Brian and Roger Taylor's full backing.
