Robbie Royally Rejected By Queen

 

10 January 2005

Robbie Williams is reportedly annoyed that Queen didn't choose him to front their band for their up-coming tour.

Robbie complained: "I'd have killed for a chance to sing with those guys backing me.

"How cool would that have been? I sang 'We are the Champions' for a movie soundtrack and the band said I did a good job."

John Deacon, the bassist for Queen, said: "I don't want to be nasty, but Robbie is no Freddie Mercury. Freddie can never be replaced - and certainly not him."
