Ok this is probably the 8th million topic having to do with Mr. Greg Brooks.
Now i know hes the "Queen Archivist"....

But who is he and why do so many people have issues with him and his work...

I briefly skimmed some of the threads where hes thrashed some fans on here for whatever reason...

But i would like to understand some more about him and his work so i feel less lost...

Please dont start criticizing me and what not, its simply a question...
Because its horrible some of the mud slinging that goes on here on QZ...

Wouldnt you be ashamed if Bri, John or Roge ever read any of the things on here?? I feel bad enough just reading it...

But anyways, this is a serious question. Thanks for you help.

He's an amateur (lazy too) with an incredibly bad attitude.

Some of it is probably jealousy towards him because he does look after all of the recordings.

Thomas, please. I can think of 5 people top of my head who could do a better job, myself included. You must have fantastically low standards if you think he does a good job.


You know, good times are now.

This is not helping. Somehow, I feel you don't have a clue what you're talking about either.

Greg Brooks is the official Queen-archivist, so he manages the complete archive with all Queen's recordings in it. Many people think he sucks at his job, which might be true, but even though they think otherwise, they couldn't do it any better.


Thanks for your answer. But i really havent followed what hes released etc... but if some of the remixes on albums is any indication... then i dont think hes done the greatest job either because id rather have demo or alternate versions rather than a techno remix.But if he has nothing to do with that, then i apologize. but in the big spectrum of things my opinion on his work doesnt count for much.

Is this why some master tapes went missing a few years back?
