ZAP THE SON OF A BITCH AGAIN!

The past few nights have been ROKK NIGHT in this household. This started when I decided the only way to get through a massive pile of paperwork was to play music at high volume at the same time. For some reason, I had a terrible urge to listen to Queen (I blame seeing a tub of Ben & Jerry's Bohemian Raspberry ice cream in Waitrose). However, this led to a Discovery which is so shocking that it might cause some of you to de-friend me. Ready?

NEITHER RICHARD NOR I OWN A SINGLE QUEEN ALBUM!!! I do own one Queen single.

I tell you, I was seriously in shock. All the rock and metal we have between us, and no Queen? It transpires the reason for this is that when we lived closer to my mum, I would just wander over and borrow her Queen albums, thus we never got round to buying any. Actually, I even borrowed Greatest Hits I from my grandad when he was alive.

So in an attempt to recreate the Queen experience, I started playing all of the CDs I have which are called things like "The No. 1 Best Rock Album In The World Ever", each of which had one Queen song on. When Richard got back from work, we acquired an ARRR copy of Greatest Hits I. And I'm now looking online, because I'm pretty sure a box set got released containing all of their albums plus the two Greatest Hits.

Also missing from our lives: Alice Cooper. Absolutely shocking considering that my best friend when I was a teenager was John, who called himself Alice and drew Alice Cooper panda eyes on the back of all his letters.

Edit: Crown Jewels: A 25th Anniversary Celebration CD by Queen - US $109.15 , or UK £119.49. That's MORE THAN DOUBLE THE PRICE :X
