The difference is that this one never broke up!
Brian has often said that he quit the band many times. The next morning he went back to the studio and continued working as usual.
I think the closest they ever came to breaking up is an argument over the prequel of TATDOOL...
For christ's sake! Just because a friend of yours is dying doesn't mean you can't live your life. I'm sure Freddie didn't want to drag anybody down due to his illness. Besides, Brian May was busy at the time with his own stuff as well. And for heaven's sake, Freddie was actually living out his own life when he was DYING so why can't his friends do the same? Think about it mate, just use that thing in your skull. You have it for a reason. :)
Hey there, your sentence structure is kind of screwy so I apoligize if I misinterpret what you were saying. Anyway, nobody says you have to like Roger or Brian's solo work. Besides, why should we care? So yes, you're forgiven...not that it should matter. I was never mad at you though, just a tad harsh. *shrugs*
well of course queen fought a lot. they were together for twenty years! with their egos and completely different personalities, they were bound to have arguements. they may have all been very different, but together they made queen, the greatest band of all time! XD
sorry for not making myself clear...ive had a few too many.what i meant was that i always thought queen were close so when i heard that they argued so much i wanted to know why.i would rather queen together than apart...and thats imho.i didnt mean to cause such a freakin rukus im sure freddie supported the other 3 in what they did and vice versa. i only expressed my thoughts.
I think the arguments were largely artistic differences. The good thing is that they never let the differences get so bad as to break them up.
I think you have the wrong impression of the band and their relationship in the 80s though. I think by this time they were mostly interacting mostly in a professional manner, and not really socialising outside of the band. For example, they would come together to record, to rehearse and to tour. Outside of that, I don't get the impression that they spent lots of time together really. Not that they didn't like each other, just that they had their own lives and liked to live them apart in between the work.
As for The Cross, I don't see an issue there. Roger wanted to do something while Queen weren't. Remember that Freddie also recorded The Great Pretender and Barcelona during this period, so it's not like Roger was out doing lots of stuff and ignoring an ailing Freddie. And Roger was there for the Miracle and Innuendo, so he was there when Queen needed him IMO
Because Iron Maiden* sat around drunk and just said "uh-huh" during their entire recording career.
Ever listen to Iron Maiden* now and see how musically lame we were?
* Other substitutions include Krokus, Cinderella, Ratt, Poison, Sinead O'Connor songs not by Prince, Dokken, Dio, Night Ranger, and Krokus. Mentioned twice cause they really sucked.
Like Freddie said they all have big egos and want thier own name on their own songs on all the albums but they came to an agreement. Thankfully! :D I mean 20 years in a band ya know...it might be impossible to not argue. Freddie also said that sometimes after recording they couldnt stand to be with eachother. Then Freddie said "i avent hit Brian...Yet!" He will always be funny to me! :P
