I always liked Queen. I prefer their early work, though I love Innuendo.

But for me Queen finished when Freddy died.

I know really it's every band's right to perform in any way or line-up they see fit, and if they get a kick from it, I guess you can't be too harsh. But for my own tastes, things like Queen+ and definitely the INXS situation feel a little naff.

Jon Deacon remained true to Freddie's spirit/soul....He didn't compromise himself for money that Roger and Brian have....True, those two are still IMMENSELY talented, but shouldn't capitalize on Queen's name/legacy whatsoever! Especially with Adam Lambert (from obviously American Idol).....That's just depressing to me!

INXS having their own tv series to find a new lead-singer was the lowest any band has gone in recent memory though!
