Has the Queen Zone Notice Board jumped the shark?? It seems like just about every topic to be started as been rehashed ten fold. Fav. album, song, member, period of band's existence? How did Freddie die, wheres John? Where did Freddie grow up? And so on, and so on. So again I ask, Has QZ notice board jumped the shark? Anyone over 25 should know what I mean. Or if you listen to Stern in the am you know what I mean. As the Great B.B. King sings, "The thrill is gone...." It could be.

Quite apparent. Good Lord, maybe time to start something new ...

I think the problem is people are just bored and want to see if anyone at all is out there and is willing to listen to what they say even if it is an insult answer.

Considering Queen's lack of output over the last ten years (lead singer dying and all), I'm surprised we still have so much to talk about.

Of course, it doesn't mean that there aren't some stupid topics that come up now and again.

Queen jumped the shark when they tried to pass off Greatest Hits 3 as the third volume of their greatest hits. Not much has gone right since then, in my less than humble opinion.

Never mind what it means, the author of this topic only wanted to say Jumping The Shark. That was the whole point of the topic.
