It's just been announced that EMI Records has been bought by Universal.

It must be said that the timing of Queen's EMI contract running out was good, and they did a tidy bit of business last year when getting a walloping sum of cash to go to Universal, when if they hadn't, they'd have ended up there now anyway!

I must admit that did make me chuckle, they will not have been aware who could have ended up with EMI at the time but its certainly all about the timing
