"Live In Glasgow" Paul Rodgers solo DVD continues in the US charts 3 months after its release. This week it hit #3.

Whereas Queen Rocks Montreal is on a one-way trip to nowheresville.

Maybe then for the American leg of the 2008 tour the billing should be

Paul Rodgers
+ backing band Queen

Only kidding. It should be:

Puppet Show

Paul Rodgers
+ backing band Queen

This is due to three previous releases. Most Americans don't want to buy something they already have in their collection.

Most Americans already owned the We Will Rock You DVD? Interesting...;-)

A recent straw poll confirms that 86.3% of all Americans on this concert in one for or another.

In all seriousness, and with all the TV advertising back in the day, I believe the 1992 VHS reissue of "We Will Rock You" was the biggest selling music video of 1992.

A) The Montreal disc was given a very quiet, under tha radar kind of release. When I went to buy it there was only one cd copy at Best Buy and I was there when they opened. I think this is due to the fact that it's been released on DVD over and over again.

B) It's just ironic to me about the Queen + Paul Rodgers name because while I think Rodgers top 3 or 4 songs(Feel Like Making Love, Bad Company, All Right Now for sure) are practically every bit as well known and popular in the USA than any Queen song outside of ABTD, WWRY and WATC, I would still be willing to bet that most Americans would go Queen with a new guy on vocals mamed Paul Rodgers, not knowing who in the hell Paul Rodgers is. Nearly everytime I say his name while informing someone that Queen has a new singer, I have to explain who he is by saying, "The Feel Like Making Love or All Right Now guy" and then they go, "Oh, they got him? He sounds nothing like Freddie." and so on....

The name made perfect since to me with the tour and I thought a new band name might be appropriate for the new material, but now I hope they stick with it simply to irritate all those losers out there who bitch and whine about it as if it's important.
