Few groups can withstand losing their lead throat, especially when there hasn't been a revolving door at the mic. I don't want Queen back without Freddie, and sorry as I am to say, don't want to listen to Journey without Perry, Styx without DeYoung, or Boston without Delp. The result of any effort to replace these singers is a lesser-than product which in effect, cashes in on the name of the band.

Some bands produce good music without the original. Tommy Shaw is a vital part of Styx (he just can't do it alone). Bad Co actually made a couple of good records without Paul Rodgers. And we all know the Van Halen story (to me, that is quite possibly the only situation of a singer coming in and the dynamics of the group being maintained.)

Since George Harrison's name has come up, I can say that one of the most hopeful things I can say about music from my generation is that quite possibly, McCartney and Harrison will drop the egos soon to collaborate on something. No, it wouldn't be the Beatles, but it'd be good to hear.

In a similar vein, we have Queen. I wouldn't begrudge Brian and Roger from playing Queen tunes under the name of another band, but I think Freddie, the music of the band and true fans are done a disservice by replacing him and continuing on.
