Now this book really slipped through under my radar. Is it worth buying? Published in January 2006...can't believe I thought they were still working on it...

Interesting, I hadn't seen it either, one things for sure if Brian had any real involvement in it I suspect it will be more accurate than any other Greg publication!

Brian did have involvement in this by supplying a large part of his own, private collection.

But I had not noticed that this was already out there, either...
I wonder if it realy IS...?!?!

It's definitely not out.

It's not even being currently worked on as far as I'm aware.

Bohardy is right - it was pulled quite late on after a release date was scheduled (about par for the course for the overly anal Queen camp). Should be out in 2007/08. Possibly pulled to incorporate all the Q+PR merchandise??

if it has Brian's position and his version, then it's dangerously biased. beLIEve not.

By the time this book will see the light of day, my collection is bigger than Brian's. I don't want to be cynical but this is yet another product which won't be released (so are the singles box set, the Queen box sets, and so on...)

We hope to finish this book in time for Christmas 2007.

It's a MASSIVE project. Fantastic photos - and hundreds of items many of you wil never ever have seen before. We have things that I had never seen, or Brian, in 25 years - and many of them. It's really a very nice and exciting venture.

Togg... you are an annoying prick. My Queen live book might be inaccurate in certain areas but at least it represents something tangible and creative and 'out there'.

You have done bugger all... just endless moaning and insulting other people's efforts, you tedious sad little man.

Get off your boring arse and so something other than moaning for a change. Can you do that?

And come visit me too because I'd love to have a close-up word with you and see if you have the balls to say similar things to my face, that you do behind my back. Talk to me in person instead of writing in cowardly secret behind your bogus identity AGAIN.

Little men like you ONLY ever say things behind people's backs. It's so very you. You'd crap yourself if we bumpred into each other at a convention and I asked you to repeat your words to my face. I hate cowardly mouthy twats like you.

I can see you in my mind's eye: balding, weasle features, probably a moustache, no dress sense, even less friends, an ex wife, and I bet you are very tedious company that most people avoid - using silly excuses not to attend your invitations, and which cause you to wonder why. Shut up Togg, you are a bore.

Hi Greg,

What kind of stuff will the book feature? Does it have stuff like advertisements, posters, cardboard figures, playing cards etc? Or will it be more focused on releases all around the world.

Good luck with writing, i can't wait reading it!

Probably NOT the best way to advertise. I wouldn't put that on the front cover. Just a tip.

That's him. You got it. You forgot "fat" and "smells like corn chips".

Er, cynical? In what sense? Not sure you should use words you clearly don't understand.

Of course he understands the word. Remember, he has several degrees and all that...

Hey Penetration_Guru

You said... Er, cynical? In what sense? Not sure you should use words you clearly don't understand.

Good Lord ma, don't you know that HALF of the QZ-ers use words in completely and utterly the wrong context, with no understanding whatsoever of what the hell they mean.

It's great fun to read. There are some real illiterate plebs on here. Leave them alone. Ignorant is bliss.

Please don't spoil it for me and others. Don't point these things out, they give many of us here lots of joy on a daily basis.

The poor chap did not mean CYNICAL. He just liked the look of it, and the poor love clearly does not know better. He's to be pitied, not scalded.

Nicely said, though.
