Re: The Miracle

I was 11 when the Magic Tour happened and was too young to go. Then the band just vanished off the face of the earth. I figured they’d retired and I slowly collected all their albums. The first time I heard I Want It All on the radio the song wasn’t introduced and I knew after 5 seconds it was Queen...

Re: Announcement Coming...

I'm happy for the release, don't mind the pick n mix vibe, but wish it was a triple album with as much as they could cram in. Unless you've seen them on every freakin continent on every tour you can't have heard say, One Vision and It's Late live. I agree about I Want it All. I bet they haven't even...

Re: A Kind of Magic!

The guitar work on Friends Will Be Friends is very nice. Instrumentally, it’s a good song.

Re: A Kind of Magic!

There’s only one thing Queen did that really lost me, total zone out, and that is: Giving me the horn. By which I mean the sax on One Year Of Love and the horn sections on Hot Space. It is just not Queen. When they were faking this sound for kicks on A Night at the Opera it was wanton genius. The po...

Re: Odd song placements on albums

There’s a difference between not liking songs and thinking they’re in the wrong order on an album. Regarding Party and Kashoggi’s Ship, they work as a unique opening on a Queen album, because they are not designed to shout “Hey, we’re back with a new bigger and bolder album” but more ironically “we’...

Re: Roger at Freddie Tribute

Before the rumour about Chris Thompson, the original rumour was that Roger was going to sing AKOM. I’m not saying that was true, but that was the rumour immediately after the show, that he didn’t do it because the show ran overtime. It would make sense that Roger would sing Old Friends, because Bria...

Re: The Game 40th anniversary box set.

Of all Queen’s albums, The Game is the only one I think should’ve been a double album. It’s eclectic and “easy” to listen to in a loose kind of way. I think a double album with a mix of rock, pop, funk and disco would’ve been great at that time and removed Hot Space from existence.

Re: Will the European Tour be cancelled due to Corona virus?

Yes, surely they’ll just decide a couple of weeks before shows. They’ve already cancelled football matches in Italy, so fans with tickets should at least be prepared for bad news.

Will the European Tour be cancelled due to Corona virus?

I hate to raise this, but the band has dodged a bullet in Japan and South Korea, but the timing couldn’t be worse for Europe. Hopefully the outbreak will be over by then but it’s bound to get worse before it gets better. The outbreak is presently worst in Italy, but who knows how bad it will get in ...
