Norman Sheffield is an asshole. Death On Two Legs is dedicated to him.

He wants us to find him and tell how bad he was probably

(It was Norman, Roy was Queen's sound engineer and producer)

RT Baker was their producer (and from ADATR onwards) their co-producer

you don't seriously think they'd carry on making records with someone who ripped them off for three more albums do you?

It's easy to call Norman Sheffield by al names possible, but do remember this:

1: Queen had HUGE expenses when it came down to promo, gigs and limos (this has to be paid for by the band's account - use it up in such a way and there's not much left at the end).

2: They signed the bloody deal in the first place. They should have gone to a lawyer to get it checked.


Queen, at that time, were young and without experience on the business level of the industry.
The taught it the hard way, but let's face it, Sheffield is in NO WAY an Allan Klein who really f***ed The Beatles and the Stones.


with fish and bacon, please
