In Sweden we have ABBA`s caviar and the band ABBA. But in England? Queen´s caviar and the band Queen?

Just wonder?

In England we also have a book called Genesis, and a band called Genesis.

We have insects called Beetles, and there once was a band with a similar name.

Also... there is a Road in London called Stanley Road, and an album with exactly the same title.

And... in the United Stated of the USA, they have fire engines called REO Speedwagons, AS well as a rock group with exactly the same name.

Thank you

Strange coincidence.

Mock not... He was once in a fight with a poodle, it was only his extensive knowledge of Abba songs that saved the day...

Poodles love Abba you know!

In England we have a Sunday newspaper called "News of the World" Queen have album of the same name, strange or what. Even stranger, Queen released an album called "Flash Gordon" & in the same year, there was a Movie released with the same name & get this, Queen released 2 albums in the 70's & guess what, the Marx Brothers had released 2 films with the exact same titles. spooky isn't it?

Somewhere in the Vatican there's an old man who said we are All God's People. Not to mention that there seems to be a book that tells about a guy called Jesus. Both are Queen songs coincedence??

However the strangest of all is Midsomer Murders has a producer called Brian True May...

Does this mean Brian is not the true Brian May at all?

Maybe the Archivist can confirm if he has the real or a bootleg copy of Brian in the vaults?

You know...I've wondered about the same thing. How ironic it would be if it turned out that 'our' Brian didn't legally have the right to use the name 'Brian May' XD

I have also seen Queen coffee machines, and the logo/font is very similar to the Greatest Hits II cover...

I was just about to write this. I have always been impressed they custom-made their own coffee-machines for the tours. ;)

There's a band around at the moment called Queen + Paul Rogers. Mind you that's where the similarity ends.
