Over to YOU, NPY!!
As you have all noticed, pointed out, and got annoyed about, I haven't been online in far too long. I'm permanently employed now, meaning I don't get the time to get onto hootoo... Which is a pity, because I'm missing it terribly! So in all fairness to everyone, I'm handing the running of this fan club over to someone who has stuck with it through everything - when times are good and even when the site lies dormant.
So, as from now, Not Panicing Yet (U187116) will be in charge of this fanclub . I know she'll pull it through and get it back on track asap! So if you're a newbie, hold tight, she'll get you sorted out . I have every confidence in her. I'll still be around on and off, and I'll drop in my whenever I can, otherwise, head to my PS and get my email addy from my journal... I'd really like to still hear from you all! I miss you!
The Clubhouse is in full swing and many of you have already stopped by. Keep coming! For those new to the club, you can head on over there for a drink and a chat, catch up on the latest gossip, change the song, lurk around, or whatever else you want to do!
Head on over...
And about time too! I've been promising it to you guys for ages...hmmm...Mental mote to self: Keep up!
Well, here it is1:
I just thought we needed a bit of outrageous extravaganza. Like Freddie did!
The code is here, so please can everyone update their Personal Spaces and take the old badge off...
Fun StuffIt has been brought to my attention that there is a picture on the h2g2 servers of Freddie Mercury and Brian May - alledgedly - disguised as The band "Led Zeppelin"!
Freddie is the one on the right, with a blonde wig, and May on the left, well, not much of a disguise on his part.
I Think we're pretty sure that it's not them at all, but anyway, it's here.
If you want to use this picture for some strange reason, then its Blob number is B1235436.
Also, There is a site on the web Theseways called I look like brian May dotcom! While you're externally surfing, why not try The Official Queen Website, The International Queen Fan Site, and brianmay.com. .
If you any fun stuff that could go here, then please Mail them to me.
On the road again
Ok Queen fans, I hope you’re ready for the new year, because Queen will be back on the road and touring again! Roger and Brian were in Germany when Roger announced that they will definitely be touring next year with Paul Rodgers on vocal duties. The dates will be in the UK and across Europe initially - possibly starting in March, but yet to be set in stone. You will of course be kept informed with what those guys are up to!

Thirteen YearsIt has been more than a decade since the passing of Freddie Mercury, the lead singer in the band, Queen. . Not much attention has been paid to this event, so leave your personal tributes in the "WE LOVE YOU FREDDIE" conversation. A sad day for the musical world.
The Three remaining members of Queen have recorded a new version of their song "We are the Champions" with Robbie Williams, who
has said he would like to see a "New Robbie"- This will be his 3rd new song since announcing a change of image. This will also be
this 1st(and hopefully last, but that's my opionion - Ed) song released with Queen. It has been said that it will not be released in the UK In respect to Freddie Mercury, a.k.a. Farokkh Bulsara who died tragically in 1991, but Personally I have heard it broadcast at A certain radio station, and it's not very good from my point of view- For one, the piano intro and under-padding has been ditched in place of an electro-alternative-rock-ish-Celesta sound.. not very brilliant in this fan's ears. But then that's what happens when people try to take the place of a legend. Bad move Robbie!|
By the way, I hope you're all still remembering the definitive article on Queen...Hmmm, I wonder...
We're putting together an enormous entry on Queen as a whole, so it is taking time, so please don't forget about it!

As an incentive to write, your name will be listed in the 'written by:' column on the entry, and the entry on your space's edited entries section!
If the whole club writes just a little each, the entry will be written in half of the time! - Don't let Queen go unnoticed on h2g2! When you have written a piece, put it in the ARTICLE conversation and I'll put them all together! Let's move this bucket!
