You can read in the queen news sestion on BM soapbox that the new DVD will include new interviews of the Three members of Queen.

I know that it can be a mistake, but until then i think there´s a possibility of a new John interview.

Take care

That would be amazing, but won't happen.

I wonder if the 'third member' being referred to is Paul Rogers?

This is something I've never understood.

George Harrison was the classic 'recluse', yet he didn't seem to have any problems giving *exhaustive* amounts of interview material for the Anthology.

WHY THE HELL does that *blob* Deacon go on collection paychecks while showing absolutely no interest in Queen anymore?
I'm not talking about Q+PR either. For a moment I'll pretend I hate the idea.
The fact is he could still make himself useful in interviews and commentaries!

I dunno. It's frustrating is all, I hope he enjoys his well earned retirement, but this kind of behaviour is antithetical, to me at least.

Yes, you`re probably right. I didn`t read the oficial press release. I read this one from the rockradio in the soapbox:


"As reported by www.therockradio.com

Queen's landmark 1975 album A Night At The Opera will be the subject of the next DVD in the Classic Albums series. The disc, which comes out on March 21st, was produced in cooperation with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. It includes new interviews with May, Taylor, retired Queen bassist John Deacon, producer Roy Thomas Baker, and admirers such as Aerosmith's Joe Perry, ex-Mott The Hoople frontman Ian Hunter, and Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme..."


Well, i guess JD isn`t talking this time either!
I respect his decision but this i don`t understand. Not even an interview for this masterpiece album? What`s wrong with him?
I`ve seen people retiring but this is another level (to say the least).

Take care

I read that ther IS an interview with Deaky, and it mentioned him BY NAME, so it must be. Can't remember where, though.


This can't end well.

He continues to collect paychecks for the work he did do as a part of Queen namely, all those songs he wrote and all those he performed on. And he is quite correct to do so in my opinion.

I believe the point Zebonka was making is this... JD gets what he is due from royalties and what-not, but doesn't seem to bother to allow an interview or appearance now and then. It's a shame for the fans.

However, we all understand that JD is a shy reclusive type that wants to just hide away. Fair enough. But there are some things that he should try and do, e.g. classic albums. Otherwise, the fans miss out on his input on these matters. It'd be great to hear from him in an interview.

Peace,
Adam.

Totally agreed Adam.
It must piss Brian and Roger off to some point too.

Whilst it would indeed be nice, it's not like he owes it to the fans, if he has decided to retire why the hell should he have to do anything, and the royalties are in effect his pension (not that he would need it) but once you retire then frankly you should be allowed to do what you want with your time.
If he didn't like speaking in public and doing intervies when he was working, I don't think there is much chance of he doing it in retirement.

John doesn't force Brian and Roger to make tours, play songs and make stupid musicals, why they have to piss off about his retirement?!

It's *lazy*. He's not retirement age yet. If I were in his position I'd still be doing stuff!

Seems to me JD is trying to forget/ignore is past. You can`t run from it, so start live with it JD. Such a shame he can`t even give an interview or comment regrding this classic.

He doesn`t owes anything to the fans, but he could try and do something for the thing he helped creating!
Those interviews are very personal, he doesn`t have to worry about anything (it`s not tabloids or something). But while he refuses to do so, we have Nuno Bettencourt and Joe Perry guiving interviews for this release, so i think it would be nice for him to do the same.

Even with the re-releases of the movies in DVD we have new interviews from actors, directors, etc, after 20 years. I know that he must have a very good reason, but retirent isn`t the one!

Take care

First of all who said JOhn isn't being interviewed? I haven't read anything that excluded him. The only source used says there's a new interview from him. As simple as that, until otherwise noted we should continue with that in mind.

Regardless it's ignorant to say it's lazy. Do you know the way he spends his days? I doubt you do. Who says he's lazy. He shouldn't be forced to participate in anything he doesn't want to do. As simple as that. Not only is it wrong to put him in that position and would hurt the product because he probably wouldn't come across as sincere if he really didn't want to do it.

"Do you know the way he spends his days?"

He drinks tea and watches One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest.
I also hear he's very fond of cardigan shopping (mostly beige cardigans though).

From what i hear he doesnt even write messages for the Queen fan club magazine anymore...

I can understand John NOT wanting to tour...but he cant even write a letter to his fans a few times a year? Come on...he just doesnt give a shit anymore.
