I quite like Queen, they were a really good band. The three members of Queen, toured as Queen, but Paul Rogers was the lead singer.......It was a one off concert. There was a programme on about Freddy Mercury sometime last week I think and I missed it.......I wanted to see it, but I had some housework to do

I quite like Big Country, the scottish band, I wonder what happened to them. They did some great songs, like, In a Big Country and Fields of Fire. I really don't know what happened to them and I wonder they are abck together, to do some concerts

Help me out guys, please  
Was is Crowded House that did "Always Take the Weather With You"  or something like that??


Yes CROWDED HOUSE did Weather with you, but it's a 1991 track.
So it doesn't count here , although CROWED HOUSE was a late 80s early 90s band.


We're just waiting looking skyward as the days come down
Someone promised there'd be answers if we stayed around

My dad has or had some queen albums on record, but when he got mariied to my mum, she took them all and become a Queen fan, and she loved Paul Rogers, but thats another story. Now, through my mum and dad, I quite like Queen, and I took my dad's CD of their Greatest Hits. He wants it back, but I still have it

my favorite rock band of all time was BIG COUNTRY & as stuart adamson committed suicide because of his long time troubles with alcoholism already almost 5 years ago by now , i was really shocked  ... & i've listened to one of my favorite ballads of bc called "troubled man" ( what a prophetic song that was !   ) over & over again @ that time !  

here are the lyrics to that song :

"Troubled Man" by Big Country

Lyrics and music written by Stuart Adamson ( R. i. P. )


Once my dreams came true
Once but not for me
I told them all to you
But dreams are never clear

If I must be alone
Then let it be forever
For it takes a troubled man
To know the freedom of his fear

No longer will I look
For what can never happen
No deeper can I long
For what I know is dear

If I must live my life
In darkness and in shadow
For it takes a troubled man
To know the freedom of his fear

If words could fade away
And strangers go unanswered
Let friendships all be gone
And no acquaintance near

For I would rather die
Than love you for this moment
For it takes a troubled man
To know the freedom of his fear

I think Iím in trouble
Once again you come to me
I think Iím in trouble
Take this troubled man from me ...
