    It appears someone did die.

    MIKE GROSE, QUEEN’S FIRST BASSIST, DIES

    Mike Grose, who played bass in the first version of Queen, has died. As of press time, neither the cause of death nor his age are known.

    Brian May broke the news on social media. "Yes — not a jolly time for us," he wrote on Instagram. "Mike Grose was Queen’s first bass player. Around 1970, Roger [Taylor] invited him to come up to London from Cornwall to rehearse with us, putting those first songs together. He was a powerful figure, with powerful gear ! His sound was massive and monolithic ! In the end the liaison didn’t work out, but we owe Mike gratitude for helping us take those first steps. RIP Mike. Bri"

    I had no idea there was such a thing.

    The name "Mike Grose" sounds less like an Englishman from Cornwall and more like a 'Murican from Birmingham... Alabama. Just sayin'.

    seriously? ugh!!...and well known?....woaw.i wouldn't had believed for a second that a band could run away with that. while...thinking twice.....people pay a lot of money TO SEE THEM. stanley singing for real or not maybe hasn't such negative impact on their fans and ticket sales in 2019 , like it would had been in the 80's. ...all i know is i'd like to see james labrie electing the same than having to support his lyrical agony ,so yes,that makes sens after all, and it,s even something that would make my decision to go-no go much easier LOL.

    Paul actually sounds decent on this tour. Songs like "Say Yeah", they lowered the key on a few of his songs where he doesn't have to scream and he and the songs sound better.

    I cannot STAND when bands lower keys to accommodate the diminished vocal abilities of the singer. The only "classic" bands who don't have to do that are Maiden and Metallica. Songs that were already in low keys sound sludgy and weird when played even lower.

    Well, I'll try to grab articles from the Classic Rock site to generate some conversation..there's tons there.

    In other news..did anyone notice that Hal Blaine passed away yesterday? Natural causes is what I read.

    that means PS won't lipsync every song? thinking about it... why not using an autotune mic system ? seems more suited for the situation.it's not like he can't sing at all like labrie after all...

    I'm sure we can all understand singers not being able to hit notes of yesteryear, that's just life(for the most part). That being said, I kinda think if bands want people/fans to look back on their career positively, they would quit singing live way before they get to the point where they're lipsyncing, or whatever. My thought is, just put out studio albums where you can make everything as good/bad as you want to, and you don't have to recreate it, night after night. We all know the pull of touring money can make even the best throw common sense out-the-window.

    i won't go to see DT anymore because labrie and his pathetic performance.would i go if he decided to lipsync? i guess yes,because then,i wouldn't feel ashame every time he try his luck as singing.
