Excuses for the Sacha Baron Coen thing...because I don't believe a word about what he said.

Thanks Adam.
I didn`t read the whole interview.
Very honest, and funny. Im not agree with a lot of things he said, like the biopic, and there are some contradictions in the singles, because they are always rerecord the singles again and again, and would happen like Elvis, who, in general, is an artist of singles for the people, and it's wrong, Elvis had great records, like From Elvis to Memphis or the debut, for example... or critics american idol and Adam Lambert said is a diva...Freddie was a diva and a macho man, both things, Adam is a manufactured pop star.
Other things are very interesting.
To be honest, I hate they tour under the name of Queen, but I like the kind of person is Roger. The thypical rock and roll star, pure contradiction. The playboy with social conscience. He is like the Tony Stark (in the movie adataption) of rock and roll!

I am totally fucked off with the Fun On Earth CD being put back.It was meant to be Sept then Oct then Nov.It wont really matter what fucking day its released,those who are going to buy it will and those that won't will not.It will be lucky to get in the top 50 whatever day its released.As for the Mojo interview ,i could have given the answers that Roger gave.Which brings me to the last mini concert with Adam Lambert in Vegas.Total embarrasing,cringe making !Brian looks about 80 years old, has he never thought about a a bit of hair dye ? Just sounded like any number of tribute bands,out there. The crowd looked totally unmoved. Roger even said in the interview that he does not like musicals, hold on there he has made a fortune from the last 11 years of WWRY and WWRY 2 could be on the way.Rant over !!

most important part of the interview for me:
"But I'm sure when I play live again, wich I will, we won't be booking big places (laughs) but it's nice to do"

Good to hear Roger will tour the new album.

Thanks bringing the interview to QZ.

Thanks for the links to the interview.

I was intrigued that, when asked about The Cosmos Rocks, he says that it was tough to record, and that Brian was in "one of his unproductive periods". Sounds to me as if he's saying that himself and Paul may well have been responsible for pushing it along, and Brian didn't have many song ideas; that may go some way towards explains how it really lacks that 'queen sound' across the album as a whole.

Yeah you have, but your comment about hair dye seems a bit silly. BM is in his mid 60's. I think at that age grey hair is kind of normal, Jimmy Page, Dave Gilmour? An endless list I can't be bothered to type, but I'm sure you get the picture

I always thought that too which is a bit of a surprise because you'd think Brian would be chomping at the bit to work with Paul Rodgers and make some new music...You have to remember he was doing his PhD at the same time which probably had most of his focus....so his best work was the solos he put on the slower tracks but there wasn't a lot of Brian creativity on there compared to past works...his work would have made that album better...hope he's got more focus with MIH2 (I think he scaled back with MIH#1 - I know it was more of a somber album but there were no heavy Brian songs, limited guitar...)

David Gilmour hardly has any hair on his head actually ! Brian started to use hair colour from the late 80's,thats why he looks like such an OAP now as he has stopped using it.
