    If you could choose only one to listen to for the rest of your life which one would it be and why?


    I'm a HUUUUUGE fan of pre-1980 Queen, but I've never let one of their albums loop for hours on end. I've done that with "Wish You Were Here", "Animals", and "The Wall", and will again.

    Gilmour by a mile, but I'm really glad polls like this are theoretical....

          I hear that that Brian May guy is pretty good, but I can't stand Queen - the name alone gives me the creeps - so I wouldn't know. I am voting Gilmour 100%. That Brian May dude must be lacking all sound judgement when it comes to choosing band members. Radio Ga Ga.

            That's true too. Except we spell it "shewed."

            Well close one for me. but I will go with Dave. I think Brian has a better rhythm tone and playing but Dave's soaring leads just make me pick him. Floyd has some fun tunes too you just have to go back in time and pick out things like San Tropez, Wot's Uh Deal, Shamus, and Arnold Lane. I like them both no ill will towards those who like May better. :thu:

              Brian May. Hands down.

              It's like a choice between sitting down and listening to a virtuoso or standing up and rockin' out.

              I'd rather rock.

                Gilmore tone, is one to be craved and sought after, May does not have that for me. Well that and I can play some Gilmore...the timing keeps my brain working overtime to keep up with the counts. The space between the notes is what sets it appart for me, it's not mindless wanking.

                  gilmour by a mile.

                  granted may is also among my favorite guitarists.

                  but there are very few who can touch the emotional presence of gilmour's playing.

                      May = More Technically Proficient

                      Gilmour = Ultimate style and much more fun to listen to.

                        That's interesting...he chose:

                        Freddie Mercury: iconic lead singer, wrote dozens of hit singles including one of the biggest British singles of all time, gifted piano player.

                        Roger Taylor: vital for high harmonies on many songs, writer of several massive hit singles such as "Radio Ga Ga", and "One Vision."

                        John Deacon: Electronics wizard, inspired bass player, write several massive hit singles such as "Another One Bites the Dust", "You're My Best Friend" and "I Want to Break Free."



                        I think Brian had a pretty good eye for bandmates, actually...

                          I went with May. He's the more accomplsihed/advanced overall player (but not necessarily "better"), but what really does it is the music. For me Queen was like the logical extension of the Beatles, but with better individual musicianship. They could be very experimental or just write a perfect pop song. They were at times progressive, hard rock/proto-metal, balladeers, retro, dance, and everything in between and more.

                          Floyd was awesome, but they were less varied overall and they have little in the way of music that isn't dark or a downer in some way (which of course is part of their awesomeness). I would guess that I would need/want more variety in the music if I was limited to one of these players. So I had to go with May and Queen...it's just my hankering for the May Queen. I mean, yes, there are two paths you can go by but in the long run...it's Queen.

                          Fortunately this isn't a choice I'd have to make as I would never want to only listen to one or the other. I love both players and the music they have and do create.

                            So, you're a homophobe and don't recognize or appreciate good musicianship? Or are you just a troll? If it's the former, grow up and open your ears. If it's the latter, it's actually quite a good troll.

                              I like the bands about equally, but I like May's tone more.
