So.....any revelations from the Convention this year then?

It was great as usual - apart from the weather of course.
GB revealed that the band are considering live DVD releases maybe as a one-off box or on three separate volumes - the early years, mid years and later years.

The Complete Lyrics book will be out in June.

Simon Lupton said that a new documentary is being made about Freddie.

In my and Greg's section, we compiled and showed some Unseen Queen live material.

Good news on the DVD releases being considers - I just hope it doesn't become a butchered 'Rare Live' type affair with snippets from shows where we know either complete, or at the least extensive, footage exists.

Twas 3 nights at Paris 79, Tokyo 79 & Earls Court (6th) 77

GT - thank you for that.

Good to know that these things are being considered; what's your understanding of the "likelihood" of it being reality?

I personally thought and think that the greatest thing would be able to release some recent live release of a collaboration as Queen + at some venue that they had done in years past and release it as part of a set with the old one. It would be sad if they acted like the last years of Queen were with Freddie Mercury when we all know that they continued and have been brilliant both artistically and commercially.

Why has the "Illustrated Lyrics" book not been released outside of the U.S. yet and not until June? I was looking at three of them in the store the other day here in the U.S. of A. Horay! It is awesome except the big dissapointment is that it only goes up to "Made In Heaven" and nothing afterwards. Another big letdown. How about the songs from "The Cosmos Rocks"?

Wow, I never knew it was issued in the U.S already?!?

This is just the studio output of Queen with Freddie, not collaborations with other artists without Freddie.

It does include No-One But You, Feelings and all the B-sides that were not on the main albums.

It's not supposed to be...What's weird however is that Amazon US lists the release date as May 29th, however it says it's "In Stock"!

http://www.amazon.com/Queen-The-Complete-Illustrated-Lyrics/dp/1617130133/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1336283717&sr=8-1

I am confused by this, LOL!

The same situation is over here too. All over Amazon etc, but is definitely not out yet. Can't understand how it is in stores to buy in some areas of the U.S.

Well as I said the book is amazing it is just dissapointing that nothing from "The Cosmos Rocks" is in it. I have not bought it yet but checked it out for a few minutes. I do wish that the book was a hardback version though it is very nice quality for a paperback.

GT states that it only covers Queen's studio output with Freddie, but another poster states that it contains No-One But You.

Can someone confirm which of these is correct?

Thanks
