Lots of the items will go about my family, things we do or don't do but also about software, cars, gadgets, music, etc ... .

Queen - The show must go on

Yesterday evening I went together with a friend of mine to Queen's Non smoking show in the Sportpaleis in Antwerp, Belgium.

I am a hard core fan ever since I heard my father play Bohemian Rhapsody, but I never had the chance to see them play in the flesh. Since Freddie Mercury died of aids, I was sure I would never see them perform live.

But now I had the chance altough it wasn't with my favourite singer Freddie but with this guy Paul Rodgers which I had never heard of. But men this guy Paul knows really how to play rock and roll. I was really impressed by his performance, from time to time I even totally forgot that he wasn't the original Queen frontman.

If you like Queen or if you are a Paul Rodgers fan buy a ticket because this show really rocks. Even my friend who just came along to do me a favour enjoyed it ! The show must go on !
