 Don't know if you all saw this article on Tor.com but it was kind of a fun read. 

All Hail the Defiant Science Fictional Weirdness of Queen! by Robert Repino

They left off Freddie's involvement in Dave Clark's musical Time, which was also SF I think.

So, the latest news. At least they found an actor of color.

Not a very imaginative title. 

My my expectations are very low. 

Thoughts? Reasons for hopefulness?

It's not listed on Amazon yet, but the brilliant Queen documentary screened on BBC1 earlier this year comes to DVD on November 28th. Here's the listing on Play.com. It promises unseen footage, not included in the TV version. Though it's not mentioned at the above link, it'll be available on Blu-Ray as well.

No news of an international release as yet. Watching your local version of Amazon might be the easiest answer.

This is a link to a complilation of interviews from this morning's edition of BBC Breakfast. Brian and Roger are featured in the last ten minutes or so. It's not a long interview, but it's a nice one. Roger seems especially cheerful! The subject is the upcoming two-part documentary on the band, that airs on BBC2 (UK) on 29th and 30th May at 22:00.

Hopefully this link will work for overseas users. I'm afraid there's no way of knowing until somebody tries!

An interesting interview with Mark Blake, who has written a new unauthorized biography of Queen called Is This The Real Life? It's due to be published in the UK this month; I don't know if a US release is planned. (I always end up buying the UK-only books on Ebay.) 

The interview is published on the blog Queen in Cornwall, which is an interesting read in general. It's about researching the early days of Queen, including Smile and other pre-Queen bands, especially if they gigged in Cornwall in the late 1960s.
