Post Queen- Please Help Me !
Hey Guys,

iam a very huge fan of early Queen stuff ( not 80s queen). Ive looked for bootlegs and live stuff and so on...

But ive heard all that stuff like a thousand times. I think there is absolutely no band out there, that you can compare to them.. i found nothing thats nearly as good as queen for more than one song. I want something that rocks, with harmonies and choirs and amazing guitars etc.... please if you have any idea let me know.
For example ELO, Muse or Foxy Shazam have some songs that are ok from the "queens-perspective". But there is no album like Queen II or a Night at the Opera by any other band.
People always say things like- hey listen to scissor sister or Muse is just like Queen but theyre not !

So if you have any idea, please let me know.

Well, obviously Muse, as you mentioned, has a couple of Queen inspired songs.

I can't really think of any other band that sounds like Queen. They were very unique, and Freddie Mercury was the greatest rock singer of all time.

Have you tried Paul Gilbert and Freddie Nelson's "United States" album? It's also Queen inspired, but less... intense, like their first albums.

Yes, United States was pretty cool !i I totally forgot bout that as i posted, and later thought how funny it is, that one of the most satisfying queen "tribute" albums is one of Pauls :mrgreen: . Too Tall Jones, another project of Freddie Nelson is not that bad too.

Btw, on one of Pat Travers later Albums is a cover version of Queens Keep yourself alive with Jeff Martin on Drums and Vocals....

If you're looking for another Queen, I think you're out of luck.
