ROTC barely got a second week in the US chart.

The boys had luck this time, Return Of The Champions spent another week on the US Billboard 200 chart in the last position:

TW Position/LW Position/Wks on chart/Artist/Album/This Week/%Chg/Last Week/Total
200 84 2 Queen & Paul Rodgers, Return of the Champions 4,840 -59 11,340 16,206

So far we got:
Sep 05-11: 26 copies (street violations)
Sep 12-18: Week 1: #84 (11,340)
Sep 19-25: Week 2: #200 (4,840)

Sales charts do not matter anymore with real music. Brain-dead kids buy what eMptyTV tell them to.

sales charts do matter. because sales are the bottom line. if they don't sell enough, then record companies drop them - and this equals NO MORE CDs being released. and that equals NO NEW QUEEN stuff

record companies will always have the rights over the back catalogue...but for a band to keep going they need a current money-making contract for new material

With Queen, they can get anyone to release their music. There has been a lot of advertisement of ROTC in the USA, so no one can blame the record company this time.

As a resident of what the Amerikans like to call the "Olde World", (oh yes, I still eat French, rather than Freedom Fries), I thought I would peruse what the Amerikans quaintly call their Billboard Chart....

What hope has Queen, in a country where an artist called Damian "Jr Gong" Marley is on chart? Who is "Young Jeezy"? And what sort of country allows Mariah Carey to be 24 weeks on chart?

I do hold out hope for the Un-united States - I see Gorillaz....I see Coldplay...I see Paul McCartney....I see Bonnie Riatt....I see Counting Crows.

Alas, a country who allows tosh like white-boy poodle-haired, rockabilly trash like "Have a Nice Day" to debut at No 2 deserves to have its soft underbelly of social injustice well and truly exposed, indeed ripped open, with hurricane force.

Oh, and for the record....I ain't even a Muslim.

Cheers

Paul

Yeah, I agree...their advertisement here is awful. The only place I've heard Queen mentioned is on my classic rock radio station...


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

Nirvana came because of Bon Jovi! If it were not for Kurt Cobain then Bon Jovi would have pussified music!

Brenski, sales DO NOT MATTER anymore. The Ramones didn't once have a Gold studio album in the US yet they influenced countless bands as has Motorhead, Velvet Underground, The Sex Pistols, Diamond Head and such. Many acts who sold tons of records(New Kids on the Block, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, etc) are not remembered. America's tastes in music is PATHETIC where fake gangsta rap, pretty boy bands, U2 facsimiles and dolled-up pop tarts are force fed down America's throats.

I agree, promos have not been 'widespread' like half-page in Rolling Stone, SPIN, etc -- what a great way to promote the gigs AND the ROTC. But, my local rock radio station 94.3 WRLF Fairmont WV plays the heck out of Queen and had last Thursday 9/22 an entire Queen Day and gave away copies of ROTC to callers.

Somebody, please make Charlie D'Atri a whole pot of coffee...

Like I'd bother my arse taking advice from you. You are not respected or liked on this board. Why don't you stop living in your little fantasy world and face facts?

You obviously don't know what Freddie was like, so why don't you put a sock in it.


I still get plenty of replies to my topics/posts darling many more than you will ever get I am seen as the VOICE of this forum and people generally pay homeage and give FULL RESPECT to my views. When I say Queen + PR is wrong people agree it's as simple as that. I suggest you follow the Poodle as well. You will learn a lot. I have have had 100's of e-mails from people like EnglishYob, Linda Of The Valley praising me with the words of wisdom and common sense that I give

I'll say what I wish. I'm not two years old you know.

And before you think again about saying I am not a Queen fan or I don't give a toss about Freddie, take a look at my username eh?

I follow what's going on with the tour and that, but I wouldn't even be a Queen fan in the first place if it weren't for Freddie, Brian, Roger and John in the very beginning. So don't dare tell me I don't care, or I'm not a real fan. That's all I ask.


If your a real fan you must not support this tour. Queen are gone. Are no more. Can't you see Brian and Roger are just cashing in on the Queen name ?

The album entered the German charts at no 13 which is not bad. Live albums don't sell that well here.

Since when is there a criteria between "real" and "non-real" Queen fans? Since you imposed it on us through your hatred of Queen's desire to continue? You've made your point. Give it a rest.

It's at #43 in the irish charts and i have to say it is very expensive to buy over here €21.99 thats prob why its not too high in the chart, i didn't help the chart position either cause i bought it on Play.com for £8.99 which is aprox €13 and $15... how can HMV charge so much for c.d's? I have to say ireland is one of the dearest countries for c.d's it's crap... xx aisha xx
