Hi guys

just to let you know that "Corriere della Sera" (the most important daily newspaper in Italy) recently published an article on the forthcoming album with Paul Rodgers.

BUT

According to the italian journalist, the band hasn’t decided its name yet (Queen or Queen+Paul Rodgers) and this indecision could be the reason for a possible delay in releasing the album.

According to him, the are still thinking about the chance to "come back to mother" and launch the new album with that historic name QUEEN, not with Queen+Paul Rodgers, as was used for the 2005-2006 tour.

Besides the journalist writes about an “old” rumour concerning the Italian singer Zucchero. He says he had been asked to be the new Queen’s vocalist at the time of 46664 in South Africa and, after his refusal, Paul Rodgers accepted that role.

I can confirm that if this old story is a RUMOUR, its not because of the press.. It was ZUCCHERO himself who confirmed this story in an interview, one or two years ago.

Btw, this is the article (save the image on your PC and you'll see in the original sizes) - with a full english translation -

Brian May already put comments on his soapbox "a lot of rubbish" but no words on "that mystery"), but related to the on line version of that article, that I think it's a little bit different from the original cutting.

I've just sent him the picture you see on QueenCuttings.com and the full translation: don't know if he will have something more to say.

Rock on

Ale

Zucchero would have fitted perfectly!

...he was Fred´s true all-time favourite singer anyway.

I couldnt care less if they called themselves Queen + Paul Rodgers or just Queen. What matters is the content, ie, whether the songs are played well and are well written. A name is just that - a name.

And by the way, someone please tell this "journalist" that its Sharon Corr who plays violin for the Corrs and not Andrea.

The story about Zucchero is incongruent. Brian may have invited him for a couple of dates, not to be their vocalist.

About Paul Rodgers, they haven´t released the album because it isn´t donne yet!

They´re going to the studio this month to record more songs.

Take care
