John Deacon Too Fragile To Tour With Queen?

(Classic Rock) Queen men Brian May and Roger Taylor admit they have almost no contact with retired bassist John Deacon, except over business dealings - and they believe he's too "fragile" to take things any further.

Deacon won't be involved in their upcoming North American tour with singer Adam Lambert - but his former bandmates insist the shows will be worth seeing.

But there's to be no contribution from Deacon, who retired in 1997. Asked if they keep in contact with him, May admits: "We don't, really. He doesn't want to. He wants to be private and in his own universe."

Taylor adds: "He's completely retired from any kind of social contact. I think he's a little fragile and he just didn't want to know anything about talking to people in the music business, or whatever. That's fair enough; we respect that." more on this story
