Hi All,
Brian & Roger will appear on CBC Canada tonight at 11pm on the show called "The Hour". It's a great show hosted by the respectable George Stroumboulopoulus. The interview probably took place when Bri and Rog were in Toronto announcing We Will Rock You.

They'll probably have a longer interview online after the broadcast. Did anyone see the Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam interview?

I think it goes without saying, but, I hope someone records this and shares it with those of us who can't readily see it.
Here is at least ONE person who would be genuinely appreciative. :)

It was a good interview, but nothing we haven't heard before. It was nice to see them on TV for ten minutes, nonetheless!

For people who missed this - if you check the webpage the following day - it'll be online so you can watch it (and the interviews are usually uncut).

I actually enjoyed it very much. George is a great interviewer and asks some good questions.

Highlights:

- Opening sequence with George auditioning for We Will rock You.
- Talking about the past. Sun City. Aids. Regrets.
- Rog and Bri are very excited about the tracks they have recorded with Paul. Looking forward to the album. Roger thinks there are some really special tracks - very different than Queen.
- No mention of John on the tracks.
- Mentioned that they didn't want to be nostalgic (spelling) in the future, so looks like plans to tour in the future.

Very good.

Yep...Strombo did a tremendous job. He's so down to earth when he's interviewing and yet provides a professional approach.

Good interview - and good that it didn't just rehash the common topics - Sun City was something I hadn't heard discussed - at least not in recent years/interviews.

One thing I wondered about -- why was there NO mention of Deacon - not even a name check??

Hopefully it'll be online sometime today.

Ah, good points guys. To us, these things are nothing new, but you're right, George was a great interviewer, and asked questions they don't usually get asked.

i'm actually really relieved they went on the CBC and had George interview them rather than some VJ on muchmusic or muchmoremusic. i always cringed to think of the horrible job those ppl would do

made me laugh:
roger: "paul was from blues and soul. and freddie was from...neptune!" lol

Here's a downloadable version of their file:

http://rapidshare.com/files/10372140/20070105_queen.wmv

It's about 28 MB. Not great quality and they include a 3 minute blank space for commercials (brilliant use of space that could have improved the quality instead, sigh) so don't be alarmed there.

Plus it cuts off at the end before they were finished, but it's better than nothing.. which is what we get from forum members these days. Where the fuck is the Paul O'Grady video? Where's this? Nobody fucking shares new TV stuff anymore. Rot in hell you lazy bastards. :)

It's now online on the CBC webpage. 18 minutes long.

As Sir GH said - a lot of things are not new to most of us, but it's a nice little interview all the same. I really enjoyed it.

I did ask for your help. All your solutions failed and I couldn't get it off the disc. Two way street dummy! :P
Anyway, if you want it, help me get it transferred!
