Queen To Release New Album

Queen guitarist, Brian May, did an interview on BBC radio recently. In this interview he revealed that Queen is releasing a new album tentatively titled Queen Forever. This album will be a compilation album similar to their 1995 album Made in Heaven, which used pre-recorded vocals from before Freddie Mercury passed away.

Top 5 Bands That Make Musicians Want To Quit

Greetings! Over here at Camp Flannel Mouth in Peoria, Illinois, we tend to put music and musicians alike on very prestigious and almost superhuman levels.

GUEST BLOG: In Defense Of The Rock Duet

The first rock duet I experienced was the epic “Summer Nights,” sung by rebel-turned-romantic Danny Zuko and good-girl-gone-(eventually) bad Sandy Olsson  in the movie Grease. In my 8-year-old mind, Danny was just all right (I found Kenickie’s scrappy-thug vibe much more intriguing) and Rizzo was WAY cooler than Sandy (I’m a natural brunette…and I’m Italian). But that duet had (cue Travolta/Newton-John “oh”) something special, a dreaminess and a longing that even Rizzo’s brassy, indomitable solo couldn’t achieve.  Later, “You’re The One That I Want” had Sandy and Danny at the carnival in…

Freddie Mercury And Michael Jackson Duets To Be Released

The two greatest pop singers in history will get their duets finally posthumously released.  Queen’s Brian May announced earlier today that the songs recorded 30 years ago by Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson will be seeing the light of day some time later this year.  The two could not release the tracks initially as there was a significant amount of friction that prevented them from recording enough material for a whole release. Keep your eyes and ears posted for this one. You can purchase a CD from Queen here. You…
