Thin Lizzy didn't join Queen on stage in Cleveland and I've never heard that they did but anything is possible in rock n roll. This is totally unlike Ian Hunter shows where the opener is often on stage for the chorus of "All The Young Dudes".

I’d be a fan of any one of those products, especially a John boxset :D (it would be my dream!).

However, although a Brian solo boxset would be lovely and I’d be excited to hear new music from Roger, I’d have to vote for the Anthology (so long as it‘s like the Beatles one) and the Queen live boxset.

The live Queen+Adam Lambert boxset I’d still buy but it would depend which way the wind was blowing on the day and also depend on what the tracks were.

Okay, I'll put in my 5 cents and vote for the Queen Boxset Anthology, but more my preference is for the re-release and rework of Freddie Mercury's boxset.

If Brian’s box includes Albert hall 98 on dvd, then that’s my #1 :)

Am I the only one who thinks Simon Lipton dropped a hint in the previous queenpod episode?

Was it all worth it had become a recent favorite, for “reasons I won’t bore you with”

He is producer. He contributed to the documentaries Queen: Days of Our Lives and Freddie Mercury:The Great Pretender

I'm glad I did this poll... it gives a good idea of what people want.
I hope some people in Queen Productions saw the results...

What the people "want"????

I'm not sure you know how it works.

Quite often at band/product meetings, there are many ideas, that are shortlisted down to about half a dozen. The band look over what's put forward, and discuss the ideas on merit.

"We" don't decide that shortlist. As a for instance, Greg Brooks might put forward an idea, and he might have developed the idea from something he's read on a social platform, but probably not if people have been throwing insults at him. If any of us have any input, then it's done politely, and it's done by putting forward an idea that's probably inspirational, and not one that's already been thought through a thousand times by an extremely creative product team.

And yeah, Simon Lipton generally "looks at", and works on video components to potential releases.
