Lots of people have an opinion on which are the greatest bands of all time. Certainly you do too. But what do those inside the industry think about their peers?

Speaking to Atlas Etihad before Guns N’ Roses’ shortened show in Abu Dhabi on Sunday, Axl Rose revealed who he’d pick for the top honors.

“For me, it’s easy. Queen is the greatest band and Freddie Mercury is the greatest frontman of all time,” Rose said, adding, “The band is the greatest because they embraced so many different styles.”

Rose and company are no strangers to the British rockers’ music, with the GN’R singer joining Queen and Elton John on stage paying tribute to the band at 1992’s The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert.
