I love/life is like a bitter pill....
Interesting bits. I can hardly make the pencil on the first page (bottom) out.
Maybe on a bigger screen (mobile phone)
It's interesting to see more conceptualization going on. Wish I'D have found that damn thing. Geez. From the articles perspective it seems like it was simply "found" ...
Guy #1: got a bit of paper have u?
Guy 2: for what?
Guy #1: well, you see. .. I've got this gum. And I don't wanna be a bad one
Guy 2: (shuffling through office crap)
Well. ..ere,... no nope THIS ones a letter from the Queen mum. .
Guy #1: oh yeah?
Guy 2: yea...yeah.. something about professing to being held captive by a distant race of lizard men. Serving up men on a platter each year for some kind of satanic style ritual.
Guy #1: the hell you say? Sounds a bit loony.
Guy 2: yeah. Well how bout this?
Guy#1: oh no no no.... looks to be an unfinished work by ....Mr.....zart? A mister Zart
Guy 2: ah yeah. Might be something they're using in the studio.
Guy #1: well, have a go at this.. some papers. Stuff about a bloke who fancies himself a butterfly
Guy 2: oh..? All that Bruce Jenner type of thing eh? That's pretty big these days. Can I have a look?
The article says:
“We see and sell lyrics from all sorts of different artists but they tend to be one piece of paper for one song. To have a notebook which contains tracks recorded over a three-year period is really exceptional. I can’t think of another one.”
They clearly haven't seen Roger's lyric book that we get snippets from occasionally, which covers a couple of decades or more! (and actually has rough drafts and original lyrics in the author's hand, as opposed to Freddie's which contains a lot of straight copies from lyrics written by the rest of the band, which he has just replicated for ease to sing from).
Must say that I'm impressed with the touching tribute to Greg Brooks' and QPL's proof reading where they say it covers the period 1988 - 1980!!
