Roger says on Queenonline.com:

“On the subject of downloads, Queen will be a launching our own unique download project very shortly on www.queenonline.com. Full details are still under-wraps at the moment, but look out for some really exciting ‘live’ wire news very soon.”

What's this about?

THANX!

So that's what kept Roger busy the last couple of years. Well, if it's true, I would be very pleased. Even if we have to pay for it :)

Yeah I heard about the box sets but they won't come before 2010. QP were talking about 3 box sets with demos etc. and after that one live box. KillerChris can you give us your source? I hope so, but I don't think so since QP are releasing a new live DVD soon. It will be quite expensive downloading 100 live shows (with 25 songs per concert): 2500 pounds... :( Still it would be great.

it will be a top 100 of the current Queen bootlegs. Dont know if they will make the actual bootlegs available for download or sound board copies. Probably the bootleg copies itself because the downloads incl the original art work.
Ofcourse you have to pay for this, and only a fraction of the actual market value.. wow :)

shut the hell up you idiot, everything you just said is a total lie.


Can't you be polite?

And to RonB: How do you know? All bootlegs in soundboard quality?

100 Queen’s bootlegs on their official site ? It’s impossible. It wouldn’t happen. Never ever.


But now it's time to be gone - forever...

How can "probably" be a lie?

Can't you show a bit more maturity than that? I realize it's annoying when someone acts like they have superior knowledge about something, but there are more effective ways of challenging besides personal attacks.

As for this news, it's doubly disappointing for me. Greg mentioned something about a project like this months ago which I kept my mouth shut about, but I was under the impression that it was going to be rare tracks of all sorts, not just live stuff.

I didn't like the idea at first because I was afraid they'd choose to do this instead of releasing proper CD quality versions. I guess if it's just live stuff I don't care. Maybe they can save the studio stuff for proper release in the box sets.

I'd be fairly confident that Ron DOES know more about it than our mutual subject of discussion, and am battling to avoid making further comparison with the particularly intellectual slug in my garden....

Addendum - having reviewed Mr GP's entire posting history (30 requests/demands, 7 insults, 2 polite offers and 1 polite expression of gratitude), I conclude as follows..

1. Nobody ever taught the poor wretch how to punctuate.
2. He has a mental age of around 12.
3. No need to return to the hub anytime soon.
4. No need to start looking at torrents.

Is he American, by any chance?

It IS for Queen releasing the Bootlegs for Download. RonB is correct

Why the hell are they releasing bootlegs when they have sound board recordings of almost every show?

Will E-Bay and PayPal go out of business because of this???

I remain cynical, but if this happens I'll stop whining about the musical for at least five minutes ... maybe more


Roger: I like it. If you don't. Sod you!
