Here is a press release today about film Director
David Mamet saying he spoke to "Queen Magazine".

Only...there are 2 film directors with SIMILAR names, and it was to my knowledge..Director David Mallett, who directed Radio Ga Ga, The Freddie Tribute Concert.

NOT Director David Mamet, who is Another famous Hollywood Director/Screenwriter.

Did the press release put the wrong Director's name in, did Mallet speak to "Queen Magazine", or is this entire press release wrong?

Here's the link to Contact music press release. And anyong who has the latest issue of Queen Magazine if you could check this out and see who screwed this up. Thanks.

If you read it correctly, Mamet spoke to "Harpers and Queen Magazine", which has nothing to do with our beloved group of entertaining Jesters. So the answer is no-one screwed up, well, only you .....

Harpers and Queen Magazine are listed as 2 different Magazines. Click on the word Queen, and the band link comes up.

This press release is ALSO on the Queen page for Contactmusic.com as a press release for Queen.

This was SENT to my email from the Queen news page of Contactmusic.com.

See this link...

WTF!!!! How in the hell did contactmusic.com get all this wrong?

Now this press release is on their official Queen news page and people will belive it....oh MY.
The only reason thank god I knew Something was wrong...as I am a HUGE film buff, and I know that David Mamet is an entirely different person/Director than David Mallet, and that it was Mallet, not Mamet, who directed projects for Queen.

THAT's why I asked. What a blunder. Thanks :)
