He DID a musical, and a very good one in We Will Rock You. He updates it from time to time to keep it contemporary and very good it is. A show I as a 50 year old man can enjoy with his teenage...

Anyone know why?

That really came across, the guy who liked a pint at his local and loved his gardening. Got lost in showbiz during the late 60s but found his way back. Top man.
