Free (The Band!)

Postby Charvelised » Sat Jan 07, 2006 8:11 am

New year Clearout Found me sorting through cds to put on ebay, found the molten gold cd by Free, forgot how good these chaps were!
Chris Logan sounds so much like Paul Rodgers!
Any cds that you have forgotten how good they were?

I still cant get over the fact that Paul Rodgers is singing for Queen now and doing a great job of it! thats a shock. as much as I liked Free I have Bad Co is still the working mans band and a better band all around.

I don't understand that kind of comparison. You don't compare apples and oranges, right? Same thing was said about Chris Logan and Ray Gillen when Retraced came out. They're all different, all individuals. They're not supposed to be the same.

But Chris Logan wasn't singing Rays songs! Freddie is (Was) Queen! espeacially live! as I said Paul Rodgers has Done some Great Stuff ...I have a 4 octave range but I wouldn't dream of doing Freddie songs !

there was and is only one Freddie .
I realy don't think that Paul Rodgers is trying to be Freddie in anyway they are 2 different vocal styles all together
I have to say that ther are some songs that Paul should not sing, like anything from night at the Operah.

When I saw Queen in April '05 they actually had a live video
of Freddie singing Bohemian Rhapsody. 8O :D

Of course, that was what I was trying to say above. Queen and Paul try to please the fans, revive the band and pay tribute to Freddie Mercury but sometimes those fans are too harsh and miss the point of those kind of reunions...the band have fun doing it but the fans don't because they're busy judging, comparing and criticizing. That's too bad...

Ive always preferred Paul Rodgers over Mecury but ive always liked bad Company more than Queen so i guess that would make sense. Bad Company had a nice rockin style which i thought was better than Oueen's artsy little theatrical music thing they had going on. Anyway thats just my opinion on the matter. And remember its only an opinion :wink:

I don't have a problem with Paul Rogers fronting Freddie these days. At least Queen went out and got a respectable veteran to represent them.

I don't have a problem with Eric Singer wearing Peter Criss' makeup in Kiss either.

BOY, NOW I'VE DONE IT! :-)

You know what would be cool ? If Jake put on Ace's makeup and went on tour with Kiss and they didnt tell anybody :lol: Everybody in the crowd would be like " Dude Ace is 100 times better than the last time i saw Kiss " :lol: Anyway im just being dork :wink: I was just bored and wanted to post something. :oops:
