Anyone got TONS of info on them? It seemed like a great band but the info on Queenpedia and Wikipedia just doesn't cut it.

I have very... none. Ha!

I DO have their albums though. They have some really good songs spread out between them.

While not a big fan, i did think "Mad, Bad, and Dangerous To Know" held it's own, and was an excellent rocking album. "Old Man" (i think it was called). Loved that track.

Blue Rock is even better IMHO. Shame MBADTK and Blue Rock are almost impossible to come by unless you're a millionaire...

Impossible? They are on eBay every week. 50 euros each.

Spend 2 nights at home instead of the pub and you have your 50 euros.

eh eh he , that's what I did :)

at last I managed to get the originals of both albums on ebay a few months ago. Blue Rock 30 eur and MBADTK .. yeah, 50 eur more or less

Great band; love Blue Rock and there are some excellent songs in Mad, Bad ...

Shove It is another (Roger) story :)

I don't go to pubs very often and I certainly don't spend 50 euros in two nights. Kindly remember that I am still at university, and have rent, tuition, books and food to pay for, and very little time to earn money in, so I simply can't afford to spend a 100 euros for two cd's, and I think that quite a number of Zoners are with me on that count.

Well perhaps at 2840 posts you should be spending more of your free time studying instead of surfing the web and posting on Queenzone. That way I'm sure you'll get a fab degree and get great job earning shedloads of cash and then you can buy all the CDs you want off Ebay.

Just kidding, good luck at uni!!

I Have MBADTK on vinyl...found it in the bargain bucket of my local (now defunct) record store in 1991 for the princely sum of 3 whole Great British pounds! Fantastic album IMO.

Oh...pointless info that everyone already knows, you can only find the Freddie version of Heaven for Everyone on the vinyl 'Shove It' and not the CD.

Thats my input.

Yea I've also gor Mad Bad and Dangerous to Know on casstette somewhere in the attic I think, got it when it was first released way back. I remember really liking it too, some good songs the title track springs to mind as a pretty good one. Better album than Shove It I thought. Never bought the next one if there was one.

You realize that I have been here since 2003, don't you? So the post-count isn't that obscene, really. Anyways, thanks, I'll do my best.
