VH1 CLASSIC ROCK RADIO REPORT 18 DECEMBER
Queen plan to release an album soon and guitarist Brian May is talking about what to expect on the effort. He told Rolling Stone, “I’m not really quite sure what it is yet… We were looking at putting together a compilation of the more unusual and yet memorable Queen tracks.” He added that they’ve unearthed tapes of the band performing songs they never finished. He went on to explain, “The album may turn out to be a mixture of some unusual things from the past and some very unusual things which no one has heard at all.” Among the tunes will be some that include Michael Jackson, who Brian revealed was a fan of Queen.
