I think the box set will come some day. I think it won't last very long.
Take a look at question 2. What do you think?
Isn't it Greg who did lots of work????
You and Brian have been going through some demo recordings featuring Freddie for an upcoming Queen album. What era is that stuff from and what can you tell us about the plans for that project?
I’ve got to tell you, there won’t be an album. There’s just not enough and the last thing I want to do is have a sort of barrel scraping exercise. But there’s a couple of great tracks that Freddie recorded with Michael Jackson that Brian and I are working on and they are good. So at some point they will surface, I think, when we feel it’s a good moment. I don’t really want to ride any sort of wave there. So that’s an interesting thing, but that will be probably later some point next year.
2 These new reissues had quite a bit of bonus material attached. Is there a chance we might eventually see a full on rarities box set?
I would guess that the record companies will almost certainly bring pressure to make that happen, yeah. [Laughs] It sounds like a lot of work to me.
