Here's your answer, my full updated post is on my post of "Roger's Great Sense Of Humor"

Take for instance...in the Current Mojo Special Limited Edition of "The Greatest Classic Rock Albums Ever", where towards the end of Queen's interview about their 1979 Crazy tour,--

--you have to read Roger's entire infamous "hole" quote to believe it!---It never stops cracking me up.--Where does he get this stuff right off the top of his head?--He's hilarious, but in a delightful way.--QUOTE]

-----------So folks have any of you read this infamous "Hole" quote of Roger's that I am referring to?----------------

--If not, then get thee to this special Mojo Edition and check it out.--

--Roger's quote is about how Queen sold Paul McCartney & Wings a "Hole", and it's about a full paragraph long.--

--It's about how on Queen's 1979 Crazy Tour, Queen was trying to fit their entire crown lighting rig into the venue (The Lyceum if I remember right), and it would not fit. So Roger and the band asked the manager of the Lyceum if Queen could drill2 holes in the venue's ceiling so the crown lighting rig would fit ok. --

--Then, Roger got a call from Paul McCartney and Paul said that He and Wings would be playing the Lyceum within the week or so and their lighting rig would not fit either, so rather than drilling a New hole, could Paul "Buy" one of the holes from Queen.--

--Roger replied to Paul, Yes! and says quote, "We (Queen) became the first band to sell Paul McCartney a Hole"!---
