I KNOW there was a thread on it a while back, but i;ve looked manually for it and tried the search button (still not working) and somebody posted an article with Roger interview snippets on the song, could somebody PLEASE post that for me if they have it? Much appreciated!

I read the text already, but I did not understand the situation very well. What happened? Did Roger do something wrong?

Can anybody do me a short simple sumary of it? Please? Sorry for my english ignorance...

Thank you : D


Thats ok :)

The link Serry posted was explainiung how Roger was giving money to Manchester United (a football team) to stop Rupert Murdoch from buying it out.

I also rember a link Serry posted explaining the song Dear Mr. Murdoch, something about how his paper had taken a picture of Freddie with a telephoto lense while he was sick, and thats what inspired the song. I havnt been able to find the link. Serry! Could you help me again! Please! You rock serry!

'The song Dear Mr. Murdoch was prompted originally by "a full page photo shot with a tele-photo lens that they published of Freddie when he was very ill, when he was trying desperately to lead some type of private life" Roger said. "I thought it was a gross intrusion on my friends privacy. I felt outraged the was his house was surrounded by these vultures when he was basically trying to die in peace." '
