To know something new, to research for something what is not available on other sites (like John's Ultimate Collection, some ferdy's mega-rare uploads (very rare version of KYA for instance), for discussions) etc. etc. etc., most of the questions are already answered on other sites. You don't need to be so lazy and check only QZ for all answers. Open my site and see how many great Queen sites exist, besides QZ, with much of information.

Answering the question: Peter Jones, Barbara Valentin, etc. etc. etc.

So the original poster is to assume "Queenzone" is not the proper place to ask a "Queen" related question unless he exhausts all other avenues prior? Or, heaven forbid, it may have been asked before. Silly.

If any time you have question - you'd go to QZ for the answer - yes, it's silly. You need to do something yourself - research, find etc.

I'm not talking about this question, since you haven't wrote about only this one. I'm talking about the whole mood - "what Freddie sung in I Want It All? Fuck all the lyrics' sites, I'd better go and ask on QZ", right? No, IMO.

He was a great man, a great character, we shall miss him forever.. Im considering to make a memorial site only to dedicate this great man's memory.

Peter Straker - Living in Londn (I think)
=============================================


You think right! ;-)
He lives an as quiet possible life these days, he's very healthy and is no longer 'in the business' (and does not want to be). Though from time to time he does some plays or revue-kinda things. (he did one last year with Jacques Brell songs)
Apart from the occasional interview for a documentary or such, he is not in contact with anyone related to Queen.

(Oh, and Montsy is right now taking a major break from her tour because she fell ill...)
