Hollywood Records (Queen’s North American label) have endorsed a Street Team for the release of ‘The Cosmos Rocks’. The idea is to help spread the word on the album through online activities, fly posting and contacting radio stations.For more information in joining and helping out e-mail email@example.com

I should know. I'm the fucking guitarist!
Well if it's small fry then unfortunately QPR need it.
Queen wouldn't have, but we have to accept that this AIN'T Queen. It's half of it, plus a singer who, if we'd said when FM was with us that he would be replaced by him, we'd have all scoffed.
I look forward to hearing TCR, but more out of curiosity I'm afraid...but then I think that Queen fans are in two groups nowadays...those that don't see this as Queen and more so a bad that Roger and Brian set up, and those that do see this as still being Queen....and I'm in the former.. :-(
Ok. There is a Q+PR Street Team that Hollywood Records is endorsing. You can contact me for information at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to take a look at a myspace page that I set up with some info on it go to link
And no...you do not get paid.
FYI...many major bands use Street Teams to embellish on the promotion that their record label does. It makes perfect sense. There is no way that a few promotion people at a label can handle hanging posters, passing out flyers, calling all local radio stations, checking stores to make sure that albums and singles are in stock, going to local clubs and seeking out potential fans to give info to, across an entire continent. The Street Team is made up of fans from all over the USA and Canada. Not just major cities where the regular promotion might be done by the label. The street team members are helping to get the word out about the new Q+PR album and tour.
I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have about us.
Yes this is very true....received a email from Jen from the Soapbox....
This is legit.
I know the folks putting together the street team and I believe they
have Charlie D'Atri's blessing.
Kobyn, did you receive my email wanting to join? email@example.com
Thanks to Royal Vision(was anyone else here a member?),I was part of the Hollywood Records Innuendo street team.
They sent me a couple of Innuendo posters,a bunch of Innuendo flyers printed on purple paper and a cassette single of Headlong.
