Wow.

People take a single line out of context at face value because it reinforces their belief that Brian is only after their money. Golly gee, we all know the media can't and won't manipulate quotes from famous people to paint a picture they want or to get a clever soundbite.

You can't be that gullible, people, really.

You don't know what question he was directly answering, what point he was trying to make about a specific topic asked by the interviewer and you haven't heard or read the entire transcript, but go ahead, jump to the worst possible opinion of the man.

This is why I find entertainment "news" hardly worth acknowledging.

... and also why most people do.

Thank you for not being one of them.

Keep with those low standards, GF. Someone has to, I suppose.

And lamer still.  I think you need some significantly higher standards in arguments.  Like they should make sense for example.  Media certainly can and does mislead, but how would that work in this case?  Brian was misquoted and actually does work on things for money and promotion?  The article links the statement specifically to the Jackson tracks, so maybe they twisted general words meant to apply to everything and made them seem to apply just to this work? Okay then, Mooghead would have a point if Brian actually meant to say he was never, ever motivated in any action by business interests ever under any circumstance.  Did it apply to something else entirely?  Who cares?  It is still an independent statement that applies to something.  Did they make it up completely?  Nice of them, given that it's quite flattering to Brian as published.

If the point is about Mooghead taking a specific statement about Michael Jackson tracks and trying to falsify it by applying it to the general case, then make that point.  Spare us the "golly gee" lectures about 'gullibility' that has no relevance to this specific circumstance.

As an aside, Roger is on video demonstrating some reluctance about talking specifics about the Michael Jackson tracks because "he doesn't want to be seen as cashing in", or something to that effect. So there is sensitivity about that aspect of things in the Queen camp on this project.   In that light, Brian's statement seems credible.

What I said has nothing to do with the Michael Jackson tracks. I'm just astounded that those words were ever said by Brian May in any context ever.

AS PER THE MJJ tracks... No. It IS credible.

BUT(!) on the other hand.. i do know what you mean. But who cares... they're entitled to do whatever they want with it.

I cringed hearing about a WWRY ad years ago with Britney spears + others... and yeah.. that was trying to push some relevance and to remain in the pop lexicon...but hell, with an eternal B/W single like WWRY/WATC you never have to be far from them ever....ever...ever...at all.

But yeah,... 5ive, Adam Lambert... eh.. well that was an American Idol tag... makes some sense.

Lady Ga Ga was supposedly a fan so that's credible AND Brian just loves rocking out

Still... practically ANY artist with any sense would be somewhat about the money and publicity...

it makes u know you've "Still got it"

(like Limelight)

lol... the Brian bashing on this forum is hilarious.

Particularly the "Brian's Curse" thread.
