News: ''The Darkness have whittled down 39 compositions to a shortlist of 15 intended for the follow-up to 2003's ''Permission To Land'' debut. The band are working with Queen producer Roy Thomas Baker, and have used the very same piano on which Freddie Mercury played ''Bohemian Rhapsody''.
DVD Reviews ''The Strat Pack-Live In Concert'', Wembley Arena on Eagle Vision, review written by Grant Moon
Great Color photo of Brian May playing his legendary Red Special, perfroming with Paul Rodgers. Caption ''Return to Fender: Rodgers and May at the Strat's 50th anniversary.''
In the review, ''The Crickets open the show with a set of songs by consummate Stratter, the late Buddy Holly, and accompanied by chicken-picker extraordinaire Albert Lee plus Brian May. (But the fact is, a Strat looks rather incongruous when held in May's hands; he only seems truly comfortable later on when he's reunited with his Red Special....Paul Rodgers, his voice as strong as ever, leads Brian May and the extremely solid house band through a rousing marathon version of ''Alright Now.''''
Article/Interview on USA band The Raspberries, their career, history, music; written by Greg Prato
''Hard rockin' anthems, tender piano ballads; impeccable vocal harmonies, snazzy outfits, a charismatic frontman. That's a fair description of the formula that took Queen to the top of the charts and global superstardom. It also describes USA 70's band The Raspberries. While Queen conquered the world, however, The Raspberries remain overlooked and virtually unknown despite having had John Lennon and Keith Moon among their fans.''
