WIN DINNER WITH JIM BEACH
<>
“We
will be having a draw from all those names that register here on the
Yellow Wire site between now
and the end of September. The prize
will be dinner for two either in London or Montreux (all travelling
expense paid) with Ol and myself where we can discuss Yellow Wire, kite
surfing, Queen, life in general or whatever else takes our fancy. See
you winners there!”

Now, how will they go about carefully selecting the person that DOES
dinner with Jim?

This could be hilarious:

<>

Waiter - "Are we all ready to order?"

Jim - "Yes, I think so."

Ol - "I'll have the steak please."

Jim - "Salmon en croute for me."

Winner - "Err......Salmon too for me please."

Jim - "Great taste there!"

Winner - "Well, actually, that leads me on to something "Silver Slmon"
by Queen."

Jim - "Never heard of it.  They certainly didn't record it."

Winner - "But there's a bootleg version of a leaked studio version been
doing the rounds for years."

Jim - "Well, it can't be Queen; must be another one of those fake tracks
where they took one stereo channel and tried to pass it off as a demo."

Winner - "Nope, it's definitely "Silver Salmon"

Ol - "My album's just been released."

Winner - "Bovvered????????????"

Jim - "But it's great - Brian said so."

Winner - "Brian can't even remember having recorded "Hangman".

Jim - "But they didn't - never."

Winner - "So how do you account for the acetate of the track that is in
the hands of a private collector?"

Jim - "Ol sings on his album, you know."

Winner - "Couldn't give a fuck whether he plays all instruments and
fucks Tranna Morris to "We Are The Champions" on track 5.  I'm here to
talk about the Queen archive and future plans."

Jim - "You were told when you won the competition that there were
certain topics that were off limits during this meal."

Winner - "Come on Jim, did you seriously expect that?"

Jim - "Whose that coming in through the door?"

Ol - "That's Greg Brooks I think."

Jim - "Hi Greg, you're late."

Greg - "Well, I had to stop by McDonalds, Burger King and Pizza Express
on the way - I was hungry.  Waiter!?  I'll have what Jim's having
please?"

Ol - "Blimey Greg, after all that fast food too?"

Greg - "Yep - gotta keep the waistline bulging - Brian likes his
archivist to be like that."

Winner - "Well, whilst we're on the subject of Archives, what are the
plans for releasing archive studio material?"

Jim - "Greg, have you finished photographing all those badges and
cigarette lighters for Brian's book?"

Greg - "Yep - I'm on to the T-shirts now."

Winner - "Guys, what about the archive?"

Ol - "Treanna's got a great ass you know."

Winner - "Jim; the archive?"

Jim - "Yes - Greg's photographing everything for inclusion in Brian's
book.  Should be a knock-out!"

Winner - "And that'll include studio tapes and a breakdown of what
exists and was recorded and stored in the vaults?"

Greg - "Nope - just pictures of single sleeves, T-shirts, badges,
mirrors, robots........."

Winner - "So the band's audio archive?"

Jim - "That's off limits."

Winner - "Waiter?  Could you please donate my meal to big old Greggy
Brooks here?  Frankly, this meal is a waste of time and is nothing more
than I expected."

Jim - "But you're dining with me, Jim Beach.  Manager of Queen."

Greg - "And me too."

Winner - "Exactly.  See ya."

Ol - "My album's out, you know.........."

<>

Greg - "Great Queenzone will be awash with this now."

Jim - "Queenzone?  What's that?"

Greg - "You know?  Those collectors and people that want us to release
good quality archive material?"

Jim - "Oh.  I thought the only real fans were members of the OIQFC?"

Greg - "They are."

Jim - "That "Hangman" acetate and "Silver Salmon"?"

Greg - "What about them?"

Jim - "Are they real?"

Greg - "Oh yes.  You should hear the "Rock And Roll Medley"
too.........."

With every line I read from Jim Beach's message I got more and more embarrased. How sad is it that when you're an artist the first thing your official biography says is that your dad has managed Queen for over 30 years. Really, really, really lame :D

Jim Beach is pathetic. Why is he promoting his son's music in a Queen related web page?

Great point Bo, he is pathetic, some manager he is alright, the only reason theY signed to Universal was more money and i can't wait now for the endless hits collections that will be released over the next few years., lets face it Queen had their own company at one time and could easily distribute with it ie: Queen Productions. So why the fuck do they need Universal. MONEY.

I hope whoever wins said prize with Jim Beach and son DOES NOT talk about their relevant projects but will ask dear old Jim, what the fuck does Greg Brooks do all day in the so called archive, cos all he does on Queenzone is bitch and moan and asks people to divulge their own info about the band  in the form of reel to reel tapes, acetates etc.
