I'm not sure which album cover might have lead you to believe this, only perhaps the make up on the latest "Believing is Seeing".
No, fortunately, Mr Valentine's work sounds much better than any of the names you mention (although I am fond of a little of each of those others). Queen is a very obvious reference point, Sparks too, Aviary, Elton John, Beatles, Abba... a very fine smorgasbord of influences.... all topped off with his own inimitable style .... the Queen thing has reared its head before (ie would he be a good replacement for Freddie). I think not. It's just my opinion but I think he writes better songs than Roger/John/Brian and if the three remaining members were to roll out a Queen gravy train they surely wouldn't want anybody else's name on the songwriting credits? I also think that most people would miss the point and they'd be accused of hiring a Mercury-alike. There are inlfluences but it's more much more than that. Still, it's a good game to play. If they're looking for somebody musically aligned (and a bit more), almost unknown and more their generation ... Brad Love???
