There you have it, cmon people tell us what you think it was are the worst things that 'Queen' did in 2003 for you. ;)

I can only think of is the whole 46664 fiasco.
And Brian's ramblings about downloads.

I agree, from the man who owns countless bootlegs (by his own admission) it was a bit daft.

* Britney
* 46664 (except SAY IT'S NOT TRUE and maybe THE CALL)
* Brian's soapbox (downloads, slagging fans, etc.)
* postponing the box sets...

Britney was a bit over the edge. And the whole pepsi thing was a bit cringeworthy.

This whole year was like "oh no! why!!?" Everytime when I heard some Queen news I thought that.

The whole Pepsi/Beyonce/Pinq/Britney situation is problematic, especially since the whole premise of the WWRY musical is a rebellion against prepackaged music -- the kind of music for which Britney is THE poster child. Oh wait, then there was the photo op with Avril Lavigne. At least Avril confesses to ripping off punk music and not even owning a Ramones album.

However, The Darkness news does make up for all that, IMHO. I believe in a thing called The Darkness!

"This whole year was like "oh no! why!!?" Everytime when I heard some Queen news I thought that."

Indeed. The only news which I really liked was the full Wembley show on DVD and the new Call/IH/SINT tracks without a lot of stupid guestvocalists.

The symphony was 2002, the pepsi thing is 2004 (I'm assuming it's for the Superbowl slot, which means all you Yanks complaining about "never getting to see these ads" will make your money back).

I think falling out with your own fanbase is probably a low point. Especially to do so twice.

If you want me to be less controversial, then the continuing exploitation of the worldwide Queen fanbase by the overcharging on the QOL shop site has to be a continuing outrage.

P_G I too think that the Britney/Pink/Rog/Bri advert is going to be aired during the Superbowl, I know it.

Britney and Pink both need the publicity because their albums are falling in the charts, esp. Pink's album.

I know a lot of people are going to get mad by this comment...

The WORST thing about Queen, are those fans who constantly bash the band and unfairly criticize them.

Now, I can use an old quote Mandy (geeksandgeeks) used to say...

MrJingle79 now will duck as thousands of objects fly in his direction. I'm sure I just said something that pissed someone off.
