Serious discussion about the band known as QUEEN.

The new site / forum

I don't have a lot of opinions on the site in general. But the link to the forum is hidden with small fonts at the bottom of the page. Unless I knew there was a forum somewhere I wouldnt have scrolled all the way down to the bottom to look for it. Not very smart unless they want less people to register. What do you think?

It's under the media section up on top of the page as well.

I can recommend the "Music" section, where every album is described:

Unless I was completely blind they added that after I made this thread. But good that it is there then :)

It's got loads of mistakes, which is unfortunate, and actually quite embarrassing for the official website.
John hated Hot Space. Frederick's favourite singer was not Paul Rodgers. Roger did not compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I think they have made the link so small and at the bottom of the page because it reflects just how dead this forum has become in recent times. Maybe they find it a little embarrassing that a band as big as Queen has such minimal activity from fans on their official website...

....they will probably scrap the whole forum soon.

Maybe that wouldnt be so bad? We could all unite on QZ. I guess many of us is on both, but I know that some just use one of the forums.

Queen were playing the very large auditoriums on this tour including crowds of up to to 20,000 people per night, like the Los Angeles Forum. They also achieved one of their ambition's on 5 February, to actually play at New York's Madison Square Garden, and to a capacity crowd.

The site has disappeared from google search list. Queenzone at the top but the official forum is not listed. Something you want to tell us?

Funny. Guess it depends what you want to find.

You enter "Queen", and most of it seems to be about "her majesty".

Enter "Queen band", and Queenzone has no entries on the first page. Queenonline has four.

Interestingly, there's no sign of The Cosmos Rocks in the official discography...

Interestingly, they consider each track of 'Queen's First EP' to be a single there... have they ever made that distinction officially before? It's always seemed that GOFLB was pushed to the forefront.
