Get ready - you're gonna have Queen jammed down your throat in every way imaginable...

Are you starting to get the idea that there's more money 
out there than you ever dreamed of?
 
 
As if they didn't have enough money already, it appears the boys in the band just hit the biggest friggin' lottery of all time. Queen has reportedly sold their recording, publishing and all other rights to Sony Music for $1.27 billion. The deal also includes the band’s name and likeness rights as well as the possibility of musicals, commercial and film placements, merchandise and other opportunities, HITS Daily Double reported. However, live performances are not included in the deal, according to Variety.
The deal comes six years after “Bohemian Rhapsody,” an autobiographical film chronicling the life and career of the band, which earned over $900 million globally at the box office, and won four Academy Awards including a Best Actor accolade for Rami Malek who portrayed the late Mercury.
Disney and Universal Music Group will permanently keep the rights to distribute Queen’s records in North America, but the band’s royalties will now go to Sony Music. For global distribution, the rights will transfer from UMG to Sony Music in 2026 or 2027.
Original members Brian May and Roger Taylor have performed with singer Adam Lambert, while bassist John Deacon retired following frontman Freddie Mercury’s death in 1991.

As of today, the Rolling Stones have sold over 250 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling music artists of all time. In October 2023, the band released Hackney Diamonds, their first new album of original material in 18 years, which became their 14th number-one album. How much money do these fuckin' guys need? The cheapest tickets for their recent show in Tampa were $ 124.00 each, and they were serious fuckin' nose-bleeders...
...  

I wonder which ones they settled on...
They must have edited the list a bunch since I was a kid and had to 
memorize 'em. There wasn't any 'you's in there, but there was 
a boatload of 'thou's...

It would be a better comic if the dialogue was reversed.

Saudi Arabian officials shut illegal pilgrims out of air-conditioned rest areas in Mecca during extreme heat that killed more than 1,000 people on hajj - some fucked-up kind of Muslim religion thing.
 More than half of the deaths were among 'unregistered worshippers' who had not bought costly permits for the annual pilgrimage, which all Muslims with the means are encouraged to complete at least once. The death toll from this year’s hajj exceeded 1,000, diplomats said, as temperatures hit 125.2F  in Mecca this week.
I am not a religious person in any way, although life itself , if it was considered a religion, would be my thing. I figure any organized religion of any kind that was created by a human (and always by a guy, by the way) has to be mostly hogwash, and that's putting it mildly to spare some of you zealots feelings. Believe what you want to believe, but there is no religion worth dying for...

Word on the street (at least according to one buddy 
of mine in Key Largo) is that they found 24 packages...

  1. No religion worth dying for? Correct. But Jesus? Yes, He is worthy of everything you can give Him, even your life. You'll see. You will wish you had chosen better. You'll see........

    2. Simple research will show you that nearly every single war in history was fought based upon religion or conflicts between two religions.

  2. I saw the Stones in Orlando earlier this month, it was great! Who's have thought they'd still be playing back in 1964?
    Great picture of Annette!

  3. I saw the Stones in 2019 at Gillette Stadium and paid $300 a ticket for seats 3/4 up the stadium. I was so far from the stage you couldn't distinguish people on the stage. Because of the stands being so high there was a horrible echo with half of the songs unrecognizable. By far it was the worst concert I have ever been to.

    Exodus 20, 2-17
    Deuteronomy 5, 6-21
    Leviticus 19, 3&4, 11-13, 15&16, 30, and 32
    Exodus 34, 10-26
