Today I enter queenonline, and I found out that the Freddie´s site(http://www.loveroflifesingerofsongs.com/) has been launched.

Although it has nice media links, I find it kinda unsettled(is that the correct word?), what do you think guys?

I like it. It serves it's purpose.

I personally don't like it. I don't like when sites have Coming Soon.... Either have the stuff up there or don't.

It's based around the artwork for the release so thats probably the main reason I am not too keen on it.

I kinda like it.
There are a few typos every now and again, and the audio quality on the live Mercury/Caballe videos is horrendous, but all in all, I dig it.

Oh, and did you note who edited the book and wrote the editor's notes? Our old friend Mr. Brooks!

Another slow Flash shit. And indeed, "coming soon" is a nightmare, no webmaster should *ever* have this on his website.

The site is okay, though not very well thought over in the sence of readability.

Biggest disappointment is the content. It become all the more clear to me that we REALY are getting just recycled stuff...
The Untold Story has TWO minutes of additonal footage!
The video's (and lots of other stuff) were also already in the box set.
Mark my words that the audio-book will be the Wigg-interviews from said box set!
The cd... well, we've been there.
The jukebox-interview in FULL as a bonus??? Come on! That's like THREE minutes of which we've already seen two!
Even the exhibition looks exactly the same as the one we already saw some years ago...

Today would be Herman Melville's birthday, and I remember one of his best quotes ever:

"A man thinks that by mouthing hard words he understands hard things"


It's the same here, the design seems to be made with the only goal of making visitors get all "wow, I love it".

And it worked on me:

Wow, I love the design.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

It happens that most of Queen´s official sites have the "Coming Soon" notice, isn´t it?

Maybe Roger wanted that way, maybe is lack of work...but in the end, there are all nice web URL´s.

Seems cool to me at the moment. The "Coming Soon" thing is always annoying!

very nice, its pretty
as for the content- ehhh a few things are necessary but most are not
example- COMING SOON
it took so long to get this website up why cant they just have finished it all of in one piece?

After Brian's "We, that is Roger and myself, have NOTHING whatever to do with the way Freddie's solo material is handled. This situation is not something that makes me very happy, but there are reasons to do with his Estate which dictate this." - it's a little bit strange to see link to Brian's site on that new Freddie's page...

The site is a thrown together load of bollocks. Perter Freestone's "Lover Of Life" page 4 paragraph 3 has 5 lines. THEN REPEATS THEM!!! There's typos everywhere and sod all that a Freddie fan doesn't know already, especially after the box set. The whole project is just a cash cow for the greedy record company fat cats taking the piss out of the loyalty of fans. What the fuck do 2006 remixes have to do with Freddie? And adding an accapella version is the bloody limit. Just take off everything but the vocals and chuck it on to fill the thing up.
When wil Freddie fans stand up against this shit and tell the record company to FUCK OFF.
