It's not like, we haven't heard them before, but obviously "Victory" is the track that most of are longing to hear. I for one will still purchase "State Of Shock" & "There Must Be More To Life Than This" once Brian & Roger have done the "QUEEN" treatment to the demos, later in the year maybe.
Beast, eh? I love how people are so quickly able to judge others without any factual basis.
As for the music ... if Sony doesn't release as much of this music as they possibly can as quickly as they possibly can, they will lose millions. And good on them, for being stupid enough to upload his entire catalog of unreleased music to a computer connected to cyberspace.
Bruce Springsteen is under Sony. So if any of you hackers are reading this, I want unreleased Springsteen material!
And Bob, I think when he said beast he mean't amazing. That's how that word is used today.
I have very serious questions about the veracity of this claim by Sony. Why?
1) This wouldn't be the first time Sony makes claims about a spectacular theft or loss of audio to generate some free publicity shortly before a release.
2) If hackers stole the songs, that means they were put on a digital storage device with access to the internet. They would never have done that if they feared a theft.
I say there was no real theft, just a staged incident.
If you were robbed of your childhood at age 5 and given female hormones from age 10 through 16 by your abusive father to keep your voice high, you too would do some pretty strange things that most people with a comparatively normal upbringing wouldn't begin to understand.
Remember the first boy who apparently accused MJ of molestation in 1993? His father committed suicide a week after MJ's death. That should tell you all you need to know. It was pop culture eating yet another celebrity alive.
It's not a taboo thing. Maybe people are starting to develop a social consciousness, realizing that it's more challenging to be empathetic than judgmental ... and making a decision to take the high road and open their mind and close their mouth.
