Hey, guys, I'd like to know what do you yhink about The Darkness? I don't really know what I think about them, but these ere the things I came up with:
1. In one post here I found that they say they contact with Freddie... I don't like it.
2. But, i didn't find anything about Queen or Freddie on their website. Just that they have "many musical inspirations". That's what I like.
3. We have to remember that Queen is an important part of history, and we're supposed to learn from our history. You could say that this is what The Darkness is doing: using lessons from past. another good thing about them.
4. They're not exactly playing Queen-like music. That's good, isn't it?
5. clothes... When I see the vocalist in these Freddie-like clothes, I don't know if I should be happy that someone remembers about Freddie, or not...:)
6. I think that if we could, we would want Queen to be reactivated, and I think that we don't like 60-years-old-Queen. well, I don't like.:) SWo the best idea is another band, with young members:P
So - what do you think?

...yet, none of them sound anything like Queen.
Xtreme? That's one I didn't know.
Add to that list Soundgarden, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, the Smashing Pumpkins, and (dear God) Take That.
Also my own band, which primarily plays show tunes but occasionally a Queen song if my throat's having a good day.
Hey, I'm sure averyone has seen this already, but I found this just now, and I decided to post this link: link
That's an interview with Brian where he says he loves The Darkness. I think that's interesting if you haven't seen this already.
