Queen's May and Taylor Not Happy With New Album

Queen stars Brian May and Roger Taylor reveal in a new interview that they are not happy with the recently released 'Queen Forever' album, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

The new double-disc compilation featured a few previously unreleased Freddie Mercury tracks, including a duet with Michael Jackson, as well as an assortment of Queen classics.

Taylor tells Classic Rock Magazine, "Apart from that it is a rather odd mixture of our slower stuff, I didn't want the double-album version they've put out.

"It's an awful lot for people to take in, and it's bloody miserable. I wouldn't call it an album either. It's a compilation with three new tracks. It's more of a record company confection. It's not a full-blooded Queen album."

May adds, "I can understand Roger's reticence. He's not really a ballad writer, so this album's not really representative of Roger Taylor. It actually wasn't our idea. If it had been down to me it would have been an EP of these new songs, but we'd already promised the record company some kind of compilation."

Joe Cocker Dead At 70

He notched up another 21 records, the last of which was 2012's Fire It Up. In 1999 he was named as one of the top 100 singers of all time by Mojo, then in 2008 was given a similar accolade by Rolling Stone.

Cocker won a Grammy for Up Where We Belong, a duet with Jennifer Warnes used in the 1982 movie An Office And A Gentleman. He was given an OBE in 2007.

Phil Rudd Says He's Returning To AC/DC Despite Legal Problems

Phil Rudd has vowed he'll be behind the drumkit when AC/DC tour the world next year. He's on bail after being charged with threatening to kill and possession of drugs in November - and faces a jail term of up to seven years if he's found guilty.

But the 60-year-old tells One News that the charges are "ludicrous" and adds: "Everyone listens to the wrong people. They should listen to me. I'm a good guy - and a pretty good drummer, by the way. Ask Angus; he'll tell you."

He says of his current predicament: "This has just been a big ball of cheese, and all the rats are gathering and having a piece. That's just life. But that's not who I am."

He adds: "I'm going back to work with AC/DC - and I don't care who likes it and who doesn't."
