The band has reconvened for two album projects since original singer Freddie Mercury died, 1995's Made in Heaven and the 2014 compilation, Queen Forever – but that was only to update leftover material.Nov 15, 2016

Really, I hadn't heard that. I keep more up to date with news about the modern bands than the classic bands. Well that's going to be a bigger challenge for Queen than for QR...

Writing a new QR song, looking at both band's songs, doesn't come near the complexity of Queen's song writing.

Yes that's all true, and that means that Adam has much bigger shoes to fill than James. Freddie was the source for much of Queen's complexity, heck Bohemian Rhapsody was all Freddie. Adam almost matches Freddie in vocal ability and stage presence but he's nowhere near Freddie's league in musicality. Adam can't play any instruments and is, IMO (judging from his co-writes, especially those on his sophomore album), not very good at songwriting. That said if Adam only contributes vocals the new music could be good, not as good as Freddie era Queen cause it'll be missing Freddie's musicality, but still it could be good. I might even check it out when it's released but I'm extremely pessimistic about Adam bringing anything I would like, or consider good, to the table creatively.

I like Queen more than QR, to be more precise I love Queen but am indifferent to QR, Queen is the bigger and better band, no contest. Kevin DuBrow has proven to be tough to replace but he's no Freddie, to be fair, no one is. I would be pessimistic too if James was the one fronting Queen and making new music with them. This is not because I love James and don't like Adam but because I love Queen but don't really care about QR - in short the bar for Queen is higher.

That being said, the opportunity to write and record new songs with their respective bands, I don't think they're equivalent. QR affords James a better opportunity to be involved, than would Adam's opportunity with Queen. QR, even with new songs, probably won't reach a fraction of what Queen has accomplished. That fact reflects on the opportunities that are available to their respective Idol Frontman.

Adam, with Queen, will always play to bigger audiences, be heard by more fans, and given the opportunity to write, his music will reach farther than James and QR will.

Power to Adam for all he's achieved, I'm not trying to take that away from him. I acknowledge his hard work, dues paying and his talents. But songwriting is not one of his talents. "Given the opportunity to write"? Maybe Queen will give him the opportunity but the problem is he can't write. I haven't heard one song that Adam has had a hand in writing that I would consider good, really I haven't. He's tried to write and with each attempt his writing gets worse not better, he's just not good at it. James can write, his writing isn't anywhere near as complex or sophisticated as Freddie's but his writing is good and is improving with time and experience.

As Adam is now experiencing the height of his exposure, I look on James joining QR as more of a stepping stone to bigger and better JMO Tongue

@DurbinRock Congrats on the @QUIETRIOT gig, I know you won't take the opportunity for granted and put your whole heart into it \m/

Definitely agree about QR being a stepping stone for James to move onto bigger and better things. This is what I'm hoping for, but I have some reservations about Frankie Banali. I am happy for James but honestly this is a band I'm not extactic about. I am looking forward to hearing Road Rage though, but that's because of James not the band.

This is not my dream scenario for James as a band frontman. What I hope will happen eventually is that he gets hired but a popular yet overrated modern band that had an inferior vocalist (which is almost all of them TBH) or an upcoming band. That way he can take the band to to new heights and will be the best thing to ever happen to that band. This is never possible with legacy bands, which is why I'm not a fan of James and other Idols I like fronting legacy bands.
