Definitely Pre-Ordained. I totally ignored the reviews on Amazon and bought it anyway, and it was crap.

Bought a Queen Fan Club scarf once the blue one with red lettering, never wore it once, because I would of had the s**t kicked out of me if I had of. Being a Queen fan during the punk days was a dangerous occupation

Definately Pre-ordained for me too, after being told by the shop assistant that it was a rare find and worth the money....yeah right!

Well I never bought anything stupid. But the most stupid piece of Queen merchandise that I own is a poster that I got for Christmas that says QUEEN at the top and Too Much Love WIll Kill You on the bottom of the picture. And the picture is of 2 people hugging and has absolutely nothing to do with Queen they're not even on it!!!

It was VERY dissapointing not "quite". Bought it - played it once and then promptly put it away for eternity.

Well, it's not techincally a stupid purchase b/c it does have some value as a collectible I guess. I bought a 1983 issue of Guitar Player magazine off Ebay b/c Brian was on the cover and there was a huge article on him inside. However I do not play the guitar so the whole rest of the magazine is worthless to me. But the article was good and now I know not to buy pre ordained. Thanks for the heads-up guys. ;)


For my life still ahead, pity me.

I bought a CD interview pack with a book - the book is shite and the interview CD lasts 5 minutes and you can barely make out what the band is saying - SHOCKING

THE PRE ORDAINED CD - where do these songs come from - obviously some are Smile and Larry Lurex etc,etc - what about these

Heart Be Still
The Day The Talkies Came
I've Been To Hell And Back
Tear Down The Walls
Vamp
Black Swan

cheers
