I had to laugh when I read the official press release for this weekends 'greatest hits' free CD in the Mail on Sunday - it says:

"Queen have never before allowed their music to be used in a collaboration with a newspaper"

They're obviously conveniently forgetting the free CD given away with The Sun to promote the We Will Rock You Musical - at least that had a decent quality 'rarity' in the BBC Sessions version of WWRY (fast).

Is this latest item really worth the effort when Greatest Hits is officially the most owned album in the UK (with GHII not far off it also) ?!?

No harm in whacking out another cd. Maybe after listening to the tracks from the musical, some people might go out and buy a ticket.I wonder if the artwork will have a WWRY ticket hotline?


Roger:- Brian, do you think were pissing off our fans with all this rehashed crap?

Brian:- Na Rog mate, they're fucking lapping it up.

Happy Days, Kerrching!!
