    Looks like Jeff Scott Soto has other irons in the fire...this is off the Official Queen site.

    There are rumours abound that something big is going to happen next year.
    Word has it that Brian and Roger are feeling rather energised with their recent live outings (Queen Jubilee plus the LA Walk of Fame Gig) as well as the musical.

    A tour next year, as well as potentially a new album, with new music.

    According to Brian Maybe (QMS) the inside word at Hollywood Records is that the gang is fired up and considering Jeff Scott Soto as vocalist to record a number of new tracks.

    Time will tell if anything comes of this.

    Good, I'm glad to see they are hoping to continue to make music. (I believe Freddie would have wanted them to).

    I don't care if Ian Assbury sings for The Doors, or whom else sings for a band in need of a singer. What are these guys supposed to do? Just sit around in their studio with their brother for 4 years and do absolutely nothing?

    No its music, its what they are born to do. I can't play like them and I'm sure most here can't either.
    I also don't care if they use the name QUEEN & DOORS or VAN HALEN. Its name recognition, if Eddie were to start a new band and call it MAMMOTH again, do you think that they would have anywhere near the sales that the name Van Halen would with the same line-up? NO.

    Yes its sad that things happen the way they have for all these bands that we love, but such as life, the show must go on.

    And I'm just the opposite! While I agree that the surviving members should continue to make music, even together if they want to, how can these groups continue to call themselves "The Doors" or "Queen" when so much of what made those bands what they were has died? These guys are all great musicians, and there's no reason they shouldn't be able to make music under a different name and have it still be desirable. Besides, you know that for probably at least five years or whatever, whenever the new band name gets measured it's going to followed by "which features the former members of (band) and new singer (singer)"!

    Brian May and Roger Taylor can go out and play make new music all they want, but to respect Freddie, they shouldn't do it under the name "Queen".

    Besides, bass player John Deacon apparently doesn't want anything to do with a "new" Queen.

    By the way, who the hell is Jeff Soto????

    He's the singer on the songs in the Rock Star movie.

    I like his voice, he did a cover of Queen's Dragon Attack. He doesn't sound much like Freddie though.

    </font>[/QUOTE]Ah, okay. Now I know.

    Yeah, he's got a pretty good voice.

    But he certainly does not sound anything close to Freddie. Then again, who does or ever will?

    May and Taylor can get this guy as their singer but leave the "Queen" name with Freddie, where it belongs.

    As the story goes, May and Taylor formed a band called Smile. When they hooked up with Freddie (then, real name, Farukh Balsara), he suggested they change the band's name to "Queen", which sounded more worldly and something people would remember and identify with.

    Didn't somebody post a rumor about Jeff Scott Soto possibly being VH singer #4?

    Queen is Freddie Mercury
    Brian May
    John Deacon
    Roger Taylor

    Anything else is a farce.

    soto did very little vocals for rock singer... most of it was the guy from Steel Heart.

    Soto is probably best known for eary YJM work.
