I just found out about this book today, and I'm really excited now. I want it for my birthday, which is coming up soon. It's so expensive though. Over $400! And that's not even the Deluxe version! The Deluxe version is completely out of the question though, mainly since there are no more copies left! Even if there were, it would've still been way too expensive. I guess this would be my only birthday present. I am willing to sacrifice getting SHA, ANATO, and ADATR (what I originally wanted for my b-day), for this book. I assume I'll also have to use any birthday money given to me. It's all worth it though...

Jeez, you're willing to sacrifie $35 of cd's for a book of $400 ?

Yes, because this book is very limited, and I can get the CDs anytime...

I'm happy for anyone who has the means to collect such things. Personally I'm more into just the music.

I've never understood the fascination with still photos really. Except maybe those which induce orgasm. I look once and then forget about them.

I'm sure the book is great, but isn't the music the most important thing? You could probably afford every album with that kind of money.

If you don't have Queen, Queen II and Sheer Heart Attack, then buy those along with the book!
I played those albums while reading the book because the story that is told in the book is about the days of (making and releasing) those albums. It brings you even more back in those days when you hear them and seeing the pics and reading the story that go along with it.

I want this book so fucking badly. I think it may even be a bigger deal to me than when I got my iPod, which is practically connected to me like an umbilical cord. I don't let anyone touch my iPod either. So this is a BIG deal.

Dang ... expenses, expenses. ("Money, go away!") That would be a huge present.

I refuse to buy any Queen collectible that requires auctioning off a kidney to own.

Yeah, but with the quantity of alcohol OBVIOUSLY consumed by the lot of this board, you could fetch quite a sum!

Personally, I'd get all the albums first, and then start getting the collectibles. But it's your $400. ;-)

So i take it that the going rate for a kidney is from $150 (Freddie Box) to $400 (Mick Rock book)????
