Queen is dead, surely?

Blissfully unaware that the value of Queen lay, in its entirety, in the frontman, the remaining members of Queen are going to release a new album. The BBC is somewhat generous:

The album will feature Paul Rodgers, who replaced the late Freddie Mercury as frontman in the band.

"Replaced" is an awfully sweet thing to say, but I think everyone knows that all Rodgers has been doing is trying to fill the gap left by Mercury.
