hey guys
I dont think this has been posted before, but i recently bought this music box dvd about Queen.
I was just wondering whether anyone else has bought it? I'm also wondering whether anybody noticed how many mistakes were in it. I must have counted about 15 comments which either i didnt agree with or were a load of baloney. the classic was when this guy said 'around the time Freddie Mercury died... 1995... or something like that' which made me think that i'd been swindled!
I'd appreciate if anyone had any feedback on this!!

I bought this DVD too and sadly thought it the worst Queen-related item I've ever spent my money on. Really, really poor. Definitely one to avoid.

Usually I can find some redeeming features in unofficial products, but alas not this one.

i know, i get quite excited (i know, it's sad) when i find something which i dont have and can afford, but clearly not this time. i'm considering complaining, particulalry about that one particular guy who looks like brian blessed's brother...

It's not sad to get excited about new products (or if it is then I'm sad too!), but I know what you mean. It's always disappointing when people haven't done their homework and the subsequent products are littered with errors, and really obvious errors at that.

I'm looking forward to this one. I adore these mistake-laden unauthorized biography DVDs.

Perhaps if Queen would release an official documentary on DVD it would take a bite out of the market for these other ones ;)

I bought Magic Years on DVD courtesy of Ebay. Someone did a nice job putting it together, keeping it high-quality with 3 separate discs. And I transfered my own VHS of Champions of the World to DVD. But still I'd buy official DVDs of them of course :)
