If Maylor appear there, they'll soon be saying it was Freddie's favourite TV programme.



John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Dude, enough with that joke... It was funny until the 12th time or so.

It's all hypocritical isn't it.
I just hope one of them sings "C-Lebrity"...!

Oh come on guys, they were always going to appear live once it was announced as queen week. Its just a bit of fun anyway and will no doubt do absolute greatests sals a world of good.

I seem to remember that queen have never been a band that takes themselves too seriously either. Even C-lebrity was a bit toungue in cheek. Also given the fun they have in the WWRY musical at Cowals and X factors expense. it seems obvious to me they have a decent relationship, plus the American idol appearances

I'll keep telling it as many times as I want to. After all, Roger just told me it was Freddie's favourite joke.

Touché...

Not really, though, but I did smile. :)

Stuff like this doesnt help me in my arguments with the trendies in the office who only buy the music that the NME tells them to.

Using the X Factor to peddle their new Absolute Greatest release to a new generation of 'fans'

How low can the 'Queen Xmas Marketing Machine' go ?

Personally I thought it was pretty cool, always get a buzz out of seeing them play together and frankly the advice they gave was good. Any one out there brave enough to go on that show and do this week and week in front of the UK media is IMO way stronger than a lot of bedroom wannabys that never get off their arses.

Good luck to them, you don't have to like them but at least they are trying.

They are indeed trying --- trying to flog some old records. They should open a stall somewhere and sell CDs and DVDs instead. It would be slightly less embarrasing than relaunching their career with 'C-lebrity', then appearing on a cheesy 'talent' show where the winners are likely to be two kids who can't sing a note, and are popular only because they have stupid haircuts. A nation of haircuts indeed...

Spot on Holly2003.  Why praise them Togg?  They're doing it to sell product.  The level of "talent" on that stage was equal to stuff you'd see on karaoke night at the corner bar.  Yes it's fun and yes it may be nice to see the two of them on TV but let's be honest, both Roger and Brian are fantastically hypocritical doing stuff like that.  Sell outs of the first degree.

My opinion exactly..  Although, I must admit to getting excited when they appeared on American Idol.  At least, there was some amount of talent on Idol.  I am shocked at how crap the contestants are on X Factor.  That's why I have a problem with Brian and Roger being on the show.  Oh well, maybe they will get some new fans out of this.

Why do people think it belittles them? they are musicains not real royalty, what's wrong with promoting a new product on TV? by going on a show that has 16 million viewers???Don't get it

They did enough TV shows when Fred was alive.

As for talent, well I guess it's easy to be a critic from an arm chair but at the end of the day it's an entertainment show nothing more so I'm not that bothered, it is an entertaing way to spend a couple of hours

It's called values, Togg.  If they're entertainers, fine.  Then Brian should just admit that his Soapbox is just for fun, and he really doesn't believe that hedgehog killers, smokers and non-orb believers are the anti-Christ.  And Roger should say that he has no trouble with the Sun newspaper or Rupert Murdoch haunting his close friend right until his dying day, and that he wrote Dear Mr. Murdoch because he wanted to use the line "king of the tits" in some song.  And, the two of them are just making statements about how bad American Idol and Rock Star and all of these reality shows are because it gets their name in the paper. But if you do believe that they are people first, entertainers second, then they are hypocritical entertainers whose words as people are meaningless.  I think that Sebastian has beaten the "Freddie's favourite" joke to death, but really, it wouldn't surprise me if Brain or Roger said that when Freddie was on tour, how his favourite way to relax was to watch local talent shows, when he wasn't snorting a line of coke out of someone's ass.  Anything to sell an album everyone in Britain already owns 9 times.  Weak assed shit.
