Re: The James Bond rumor topic

There was talk for years that the director at the time was a massive Queen fan and that he was supposedly keen to get Queen to do it (however at the time, there was no Queen+anyone. I know the Queen sound would be perfect for a Bond theme, and with Adam Lambert on board these days, I'd like to thin...

Re: New Queen Vinyl Collection on Hatchette Partworks

What's more, the website is still up and running, letting people sign up for a full subscription, which allows the companies involved to harvest our personal data including bank details. Not cool. And when I emailed them a while back to suggest they add "Queen Rocks", "Queen Forever" and "The Cosmos...

Re: New Queen Vinyl Collection on Hatchette Partworks

Update from this site which shines a little light on the subject, I subscribed but never received a single issue. It's also strange that not a single issue has appeared on eBay yet (Unless I missed a couple), so has anyone actually got all 4 LP's? Following the success of the Queen - The Vinyl Coll...

Re: New Queen Vinyl Collection on Hatchette Partworks

I've had no payments taken and no issues received, so utterly baffled what's going on here! :shock:

Greg is the only exception to that rule, that I know of.
Rhys Thomas is the other most notable example. A diehard fan his entire life.

Re: The Ultimate Rare Material Collection

I'd also add the versions of Don't Stop Me Now and The Show Must Go On played over the end credits of movie (the only decent part of Bohemian Rhapsody) - neither of which featured on the soundtrack. Haven't seen it since I left the cinema and have no desire to ever own it... what was different abou...

Re: The Ultimate Rare Material Collection

Discounting live material, I recently compiled everything I was aware of that had been released officially or had leaked, which could constitute a 'rarity' into 12 collections. They're far from exhaustive, as so much material is clearly sat in the vaults, but I've tried to pull together as much as p...

Re: The Miracle Box set

That article isn't very well researched. It says it's "Queen's eighth live album, but the first without founding member and lead singer Freddie Mercury". Return of the Champions and Live In Ukraine spring to mind. But if you think about what they've put out since MIH, it's a bit of a shocker that L...

Re: New Queen Vinyl Collection on Hatchette Partworks

Rather piss-poor starting point for this, really... can't believe we've not had a single issue through yet! :roll:

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody, The Movie...

Why is 1978's "Fat Bottomed Girls" used out of sync with the bands first tour of America 1974? "Now I'm Here" is a better choice. Because "Now I'm Here" doesn't have the line "Get on your bikes and ride" they could use over a cheap shot of Lambert as a trucker. Homosexuality and the lengths people ...
