DONALD TRUMP AND WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS
- PERSONAL INTERIM ANSWER FROM BRI

Direct link

My personal reaction to Donald Trump using our music … We'd never give permission.

Trump news grab

I’ve had an avalanche of complaints – some of which you can see in our ‘LETTERS’ page – about Donald Trump using our We Are The Champions track as his ‘theme’ song on USA TV. This is not an official Queen statement, but I can confirm that permission to use the track was neither sought nor given. We are taking advice on what steps we can take to ensure this use does not continue. Regardless of our views on Mr Trump’s platform, it has always been against our policy to allow Queen music to be used as a political campaigning tool. Our music embodies our own dreams and beliefs, but it is for all who care to listen and enjoy.

AND HERE'S THAT MEDAL !
Direct link

Queen's 90th Birthday Medal

It's a nice piece of work - almost as nice as my special sixpence picks ! Well, not to be flippant, I take my hat off to the sculptor. Just to be clear - I didn't get AWARDED the medal - it's an issue to raise money for the Queen's designated charities, and mine was a 'thank you' for contributing to the 90th Birthday book.

This is a modern example of 'bas-relief' sculpture - with a compressed scale vertical to the surface - exactly how the Diableries sculptors Hennetier and Habert began their Adventures in Hell in the 1860s in France. Check out our Diableries 3-D book at Londonstereo.com !

Cheers

UNBOXING THE RED OWLS
Direct link

I’ve been tweeting about the Red Owls. And here they are, being unboxed. Just so you know, the reason I’m so excited is that we’ve made a run of Reds as the basis for a new generation of OWL … dedicated to Virtual Reality as well as 3-D. They’re all gleaming and waiting to married up to their magical magnetic holding plates, in a simple kit which will convert your Smartphone into a virtual reality instrument. It doesn’t matter what kind of phone you use - which is a rarity amongst VR devices. The OLW kit will give you access to all the new Virtual Reality material springing up on the Net - and soon to a Google special Bohemian Rhapsody VR film, and hopefully, soon after, to a ‘flying VR journey' inside our recent Queen and Adam Lambert Barcelona show !

All exciting stuff. I’ll keep you posted. We’re hoping the complete kits will be available by the end of this month, and you can pre-order right now at www.LondonStereo.com.

 

This is an exciting moment for me !

Red OWL box

 

Open the box !!!

RED OWLS are here ! These are the VR issue - available next month ! ! !
