Excellent!

I thought the track was perfectly fine as an outlet for Roger's vocal, but if Brian thinks it's even better *NO*, well, here's hoping.

Something's telling me to expect something along the lines of "Spread Your Wings".........

Too bad you guys can't download it, since it's mp3 :(

FriedChicken,

Why does the fact that it's an MP3 prevent it from being downloaded?

That format *enables* it to be downloaded.

Excellent news. I can't wait to hear what it sounds like.

I'm also waiting for the first person to complain that the artwork (http://www.queenonline.com/uploads/727829b16e9b4227bbdf9c6d2fea6dea.jpg) does not say Queen + Paul Rodgers.

I bet Brian created that piece of crap artwork. Or maybe Richard Gray did afterall, seeing how 'good' his recent work has been...

AWESOME! I absolutely love this song. I do hope that they eventually press some CD copies, though I would assume waiting for the album would take care of THAT.

I noticed that as well, but decided not to mention it. The words Gates and Flood come to mind. ;-)

I don't care what they are called as long as the music is good.

That'll be me then. I have written to May to ask him if this band is now known as 'Queen'.

I'm guessing its the same person who designed the new look queenonline. There is a theme there with the red and white writing on a black background.

Maybe they had a little paint left in the bottom of the tin. ;-)

Do you think you'll get an answer? ;)

I would probably have complained about the artwork as well, but I have absolutely no interested in seeing or hearing the product.
