Brian and Roger's recent "Queen+" collaborations don't have John Deacon either, who wrote three of their biggest hits and whose bass is a subtle but important part of their classic sound. So it's only half the original band. I would prefer them not to use the Queen name.

On the other hand, is Pink Floyd without Wright still Floyd? If not, does that put The Wall into borderline status, where he was fired and made limited session contributions? (I admit I'm not really a big fan of The Wall as an album, though of course the best tracks are great)

You might prefer them not to, but John is perfectly happy for them to. Why should they drop the brand they worked for decades to create? They're not dead.

We get very emotionally attached to things like bands, and so have very strong opinions about whether a band is still that band when whoever we think is inseparable from said band is no longer there.

But that's all on us. That's our opinion.

We don't ask why Apple hasn't dissolved, or why Ford is still called Ford. A music group is a business. Entertainment business, yes, but a business nonetheless.
