Media Moment: Classic Rock magazine
Queen-related: Features article on Queen and Queen tidbits throughout
Eddie in a suit and given an Obama political poster treatment. This issue of Classic Rock magazine caught my eye at the drug store the other day. Hey! There’s Queen on the polybag — the front has them mentioned at the top of the boxed list, and on the back there’s a description of the inside article and the recording of their Sheer Heart Attack album from 1974.
In the album review section near the end of the publication, there is another Queen-dominant layout in which the recent re-release of NOTW is the main story, even though this sidebar is surrounding by other big-name releases like Moving Pictures by Rush.
The editors must have begged Mick Rock for all of the shots from his SHA album cover photo shoot because this story features outtakes from that session that I’ve never seen before. (I’m sure some of them appear in Rock’s recently published book on Queen, but, sadly, I haven’t seen it.)
