It's obviously the doc off the box - why would they go to the trouble of making two different ones?

3 raw sessions tracks put out already, plus the Doc itself. REALLY no need to overpay for it now...

I will never spend a penny on any product that has Adam Lamberace's voice on it. I don't care if it's a mere ten seconds of it. Brian and Roger will never get this farce over on me. I don't care about their delusional hype I have my own ears. QAL sound like a bad cruise ship band doing Queen songs.

Cant really say it's the same animal, until we've seen both, can we?

Maybe they cut AL out to be replaced by Freddie footage :-P ?

Not definitively, I grant you. I know where my money would go though.

No, I'm smart enough to know that Q+ is not Queen. ;)

The documentary is indeed 55 minutes long!

Well, I already knew that Freddie and Sid Vicious had a little exchange, but I didn't know that Brian invited Johnny Rotten to do backing vocals for a track. Wonder if that's true, maybe it is? I doubt if the documentary will cover it, but it's an intriguing thought.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/featu ... ng-w509836

"Next door, Queen was recording one of their albums [News of the World] and Brian May asked me if I would do some backing vocals on their album," Rotten says. "I don't remember which song, it's not the 'Galileo' one. But I went in and it was amazing to hear the way that Freddie [Mercury] recorded every line separately – sometimes just a word – and then they'd edit them. Bloody hell, I got one take and that's it; I'd get two if I made a mistake. I eventually realized that the music will overcome, regardless of the alleged rules and regulations that were always being thrown at us."

Yeah, was reading this the other day; it smells of total bullshit to me. I just cannot imagine Brian asking Rotten to do backing vocals on a Queen album - even at the height of punk. Also, one would have thought he (Brian) would have mentioned it during his recent Steve Jones interview - would have been the perfect situation (especially since they discussed recording in the same studio, etc.).

I think Rotten is full of it. Like most 'punks. OK, he is not dumb like the dead one (Simon?), but he talks some shit...probably all that awful butter he's been eating.
