Re: BM solo re-releases: "We're working on a plan"

Surprised Tony didn’t mention Brian’s guest spot on the Sabbath album Headless Cross, being as he’s the only man other than Tony himself to ever play guitar for the band.

Cracking solo it is too.

Re: BM solo re-releases: "We're working on a plan"

I’m all in favour of a new Brian solo album. Would prefer something with vocals but I’d take an instrumental offering. Also interested to see what extras we get with the Star Fleet reissue, because - unlike his other two solo albums - there aren’t a ton of B-sides to include, just the single and B-s...

Re: Freddie Mercury - The Final Act

Watched this on iPlayer earlier. I’ll echo the sentiment that it felt terribly disjointed in its focus - was it a documentary about Freddie, about AIDS in general, or the tribute concert? - but I quite enjoyed it all the same. Even if it felt a bit out of place, I appreciated all the tribute show st...

Re: Freddie Mercury - The Final Act

Sorry to hear you're one of the people in that boat! Hope you get it back soon!

If it's any consolation, the doc's on iPlayer, so you shouldn't have any trouble catching up.

Re: Freddie Mercury - The Final Act

Personally I always wished more time had been spent on the tribute concert in Days of Our Lives (although I understand why it wasn’t a priority) so if there’s a good deal about that in this, then I’m interested.

Re: In The News Today...

Well, you build it, they will come. Demand will motivate governments to build them. You say that, but there are plenty of areas where there are more people than there is space for their cars. Not to mention the fact a lot of public car parks in the UK are too small anyway, if you start losing space...

Re: In The News Today...

You do know that eventually, with more uptake, they will use more and more renewable energy. Electric cars will only cost about 7 AU dollars to fully charge as a charging station. If you are smart and have solar panels at home, you can charge overnight. As electric cars don't have combustion engine...

Re: Why do people collect Queen?

My simple reply would be, why do people collect anything? This. For what it's worth, I collect Queen in as much as I collect their music - I'll go out of my way to get all their songs on a format I'll conceivably listen to, but I don't feel any need to try and collect multiple copies or different r...

Re: In The News Today...

I'm still not sold on electric vehicles, mostly because no one seems to be addressing the issue of the batteries being terrible for the environment to both make and dispose of, added to which they only last a few years, certainly less than the average life of a car. I'm also not convinced anyone has...
