From the holly swathed Christmas pen of ye olde drummiste!
Bin busy in Queen World lately – I have been out and about telling
people about ‘Queen Abosolute Greatest’ or QWAG as it’s known. It’s
doing great but like all subjective lists was never gonna please
everybody as we all have our particular faves etc. However doing the X
factor was a bit of a laugh as was The Jools Holland show. I just
thought it would be good to cover both ends of the spectrum by doing
the comedy show AND the actual real music show. Enjoyed it all.
I hope you some of you liked/enjoyed my "protest song" ‘The
Unblinking Eye’:- won’t make a difference ,but good to say what you
think sometimes – at least I’m lucky enough to have a platform to say
anything! Bring back capitol punishment – for politicians !?!
"We Will Rock You" soldiers on in the west end as does the
magnificant touring version – can’t believe it and what pleasure it has
provided (for us mainly).
Brian has been out talking about + signing his book on Victorian
Stereo Photography "A Village Lost and Found" which I believe is doing
very well for such a …. + little known subject. Who knows what he
will do next? – I don’t! – I expect it will be eccentric + interesting
As for me and Arty, well we’re still threatening to tour with my
mate ‘Taylor Hawkins from Foo Fighters’. Maybe March or April – we are
both keen – I think it could be fantastic + exciting?
As I go in search of the ‘largest goose in all of London’ I wish
you alll have (or had) a very Merry Christmas + all the best for 2010.
It can’t get any worse for the UK than 2009, (or can it)?
So keep raging against the machine (or whatever your personal piece of toast might be) and keep well and happy.
Loads of love

P.S. Be awkward !
