This is the book Roger Taylor blocked serialisation in the Murdoch press in the UK.

But he didn't bother to block Murdoch's Sun giving away We Will Rock You CD's. 

Hypocrite.

Have you considered first of all, WWRY was Brian's song to begin with? Lordy how the man was whoring that song around in the pre-QPR days, LOL!

=================== 

Or bother not to give The Sun a sit down earlier in 2011 to promote the Universal releases either.  On an earlier thread discussing Roger's rerelease of 'Dear Mr. Murdoch' timed to the emerging scandal I said something to the effect of Roger having another opportunity now to have his public actions more closely follow his stated principles, and he's done that with this move regarding the serialization.  I don't think he had a choice really, with everything being current and fresh, including the attention drawn to his song again, so I don't know that I would assign him a bunch of great character traits on the back of this. Still, it was a good use of the power the course of this little slice of history gave him, and a gesture that had a good deal of social value, no matter the motivation.

Gary, is there a definitive list of the countries where the book is going to be released? I heard a rumour that it'll be released in my country and I'm trying to find some confirmation.

I think these days, regardless if a book is actually released in a particular country or not, we all have access to the internet where any book can be ordered from, say Amazon, and it will be shipped to anywhere in the world.
