I'm sitting here right now watching the broadcast on VH1, and who do I see after Lynyrd Skynyrd finishes playing Sweet Home Alabama? None other than our very own Brian is who. I sure hope he joins in on the jam session at the end of the program.

I wonder if Roger and/or Paul were in attendance?

Cheers,
Mike

Didn't Brian induct Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne?

Yes, I was talking about the American version. I don't think he did anything other than attend. Oh well. It nice to see that he is fitting other things into his schedule while in the country.

You guys mentioned that Brian inducted Black Sabbath into your hall of fame. Well, I am little curious about something. How big is Queen in other parts of the world? How much of a presence does Queen have outside of the US? In the US, Queen is never even mentioned unless someone forces the issue. I wouldn't suspect that it is because Freddie was gay since there are plenty of Elton John and David Bowie fans. For instance, I can listen to a classic rock station all day and I might hear one Queen song, but several from Elton. I have never heard on Queen mentioned on television other than '100 greatest...' countdowns on VH1.
