- Typical website in the recent Queen style. Including spelling mistakes.
- boring lay out
+ Nice to see Peter Freestone is involved. I hope he gets paid for that. He deserves it.

"The site has been launched to support the ongoing legacy of Queen's celebrated lead vocalist and the songwriter Freddie Mercury. It will also coincide with a renewed campaign covering off his solo catalogue and forthcoming releases, however in the meantime we would like to give you a short guide on what to expect on the new site!"

Judging from the site, that looks like exactly what's happening.  There's no 'Ask Freddie's Barber' section.

In addition, the terms and conditions and privacy policy don't work - surely a legal requirement before launching live??

Strange that the site is created by a foreign language web company too......

I would think it more valuable to sell than post a cheap looking site like that.

Unfortunately, they've got "private registration" so that's not the real information. They pay extra just to keep it private, I'm sure they're expecting some back lash.

Remember this story from a year or two back? It seems that the domain name was given to Freddie's Estate, so either;

1) it is official, or
2) they've lapsed on it after changing their mind and someone else has now got it

If it is official they'll be something announcing it nearer Freddie's birthday I'm sure - followed by Jim Beach setting up an online shop on the site selling Queen and Freddie compilation albums
