Ok started to read some parts of the 40 years book and noticed a mistake. Page 71. It reads "The set list featured three songs from A Kind Of Magic: One Vision, Who Wants To Live Forever and the title track."

Friends Will Be Friends, even though its not the full track, It should say four tracks.

Has anyone noticed anymore mistakes. I finally though a book would come out that had no mistakes, feed up of mistakes like these....


Even on some offical Queen video releases there are mistakes.


I remember ringing Jacky(Queen Fanclub). When greatest hits 3 came about saying"Living on my own" was the wrong version on the album.

Why are there so many mistakes on offical releases????

There are a couple of previous topics listing out a number of obvious, annoying mistakes (including the error with the CD) in an otherwise excellent book

It says in the chapter "The Early Years" on the caption below an early picture of Freddie that it's from 1968,but actually it's from maybe 1958.

I haven't even gotten around to reading it properly, I suspected this would be the case though. Nonetheless, I enjoy the replica tour posters...

These mistakes happen because they do not make Prototypes of their releases to be scrutinized by knowledgable people.
