I choose Queen. I like Elton John, but I loved Freddy Mercury. No one could wear a cape like he could. The first time I heard Bohemian Rhapsody, it was a performance by the high school choir, who came to my elementary school. I did not know who Queen was, but what a song.

Neither. I'd rather stare at my legs for an entire day and be completely demoralized by the outcome.

Elton, I never did like Queen. I've always been a huge Elton fan.

Queen - I saw them in 1979 in Toronto on the Fat Bottom Girls tour....amazing. The tour was recorded for their Live Killer album, which had the fast version of We Will Rock You.

Stunning show, Freddie was a great performer!

That's easy, Elton John, I never really cared for the sound of Brian Mays guitar. Always appreciated he and his Father made his guitar but it seemed rather thin sounding more often than not.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Both are great albums, imo, YBR is more timeless though.
