    Hey guys, so just wonderin if any of you guys have heard "c-lebrity" ...its the new Queen song thats out with Paul Rodgers... my friend at umgd told me to watch a video on their myspace of a live performance of the song.. it was incredible...didnt know how id feel about the new collaboration, just cause freddie can never be replaced, but paul really rocked it and isnt a wannabe, he brings his own style.. heres the site- http://www.myspace.com/Queen

    Paul hasn't been a wannabe since his days with Free which transformed into Bad Company, the only recording group to record on the Swansong label other than Led Zeppelin ...back in the day :)

    So what are you saying then? I mean, I do understand what you said, but what do you mean by that? Do you like the stuff they just put out?
    I think it was collaborated very well.

    Just sayin'

    I like each and everyone of those you mentioned. Just pitching a rock into the pond, so to speak.

    But those cats are old...too old to be playin' rock and roll star.

    i have to disagree. i hear that a lot, that the 'elderly' should not be playing rock... i think musicians should get better and better at what they do with more experience... though i find in many cases that creativity may dwindle (stones!!!), and some vocal chops may diminish, but really, would you ever hear someone say that of a blues musician? or a classical musician? 'oh, yeah! that B.B King! he's way too old to play the blues! same with R.L Burnside! they should give it up!' seems ridiculous, and i hope to be a rock musician till they put me in the grave. in fact, i will be buried with my 1957 les paul jr.!!!!!!!!!!

    I do very much agree with you BDM. With all of that said what do you think about Queen + Paul Rodgers new album 'Cosmos Rocks'? I mean Brian May is one of my favorite guitarists and everything but for his age and experience you'd think that he would have some more reach into the creative area, although his riffs and licks on the new album fit perfectly fine. It just seems like maybe I was expecting a little more. The man has accomplished quite a bit though.

    We are on the same side of the headstone here fellas.

    Too old to be playin' rock and roll star wasn't about music, it was about the visual aspect of it. I can't look at it!!!

    yeah that is a good point too. But this went in a completely wrong direction... All I wanted to know was, who has heard the album and who likes it?
