Firstly Freddie was awesome.

In finding someone to sing with Queen - this is what Robbie brings to the mix

1. A great rock voice
2. A high profile.

Rock voice? A guy who defected from the British equivalent of the Backdoor Boys and who sings top 40 bubblegum shit can hardly be described as a "great rock voice".

George Michael has a great voice, but Queen was a ROCK band, Wham was not. Where George can pull off "Somebody to Love" decently, I don't see him having a snowball's chance in Hell with "Stone Cold Crazy" or "Keep Yourself Alive"

Though I despised VD III and thought Gary Cherone was WAY out of his league there, he is probably the best guy alive for a Queen fill in. I don't think ANYONE should be attempting to replace Freddie permanently. At least Cherone, having recently been through a humbling experience, attempting to replace another legendary frontman, understands how it can be when the fans won't accept you.

I would urge "Queen" not to tour or record as a band with any other singer. It would cheapen the band's legacy and be an insult to Freddie Mercury and the fans. What I wouldn't mind seeing, late next year is a live sattelite broadcast on the 10th anniversary of Freddie's death, following the same format as the 1992 "Concert For Life"
