JOHNNY DEPP Tipped For FREDDIE MERCURY Film
Latest News - Music News
Written by RogorMortis   
Sunday, 24 December 2006
Louise Jury of the U.K.'s The Independent reports that "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Johnny Depp is being lined up to play a rock star for real in a biopic of the late QUEEN frontman Freddie Mercury.

Robert de Niro's company, Tribeca Productions, is said to be behind the project, which Brian May, the QUEEN guitarist, confirmed was in development. "Discussions are at an early stage," he said on his web site.
May described Depp as "fantastic." "He would be a worthy counterpart for Freddie on screen. I don't think I can say any more right now," he added.

De Niro has known Brian May and QUEEN's drummer, Roger Taylor, since they met at the Venice Film Festival in 1996 and ploughed his own money into their hit stage musical, "We Will Rock You". The musical was originally going to be about the band but the surviving members decided that would be too embarrassing for all involved.

The proposed biopic would tell the life story of Mercury, who was born in Zanzibar in 1946 and died from complications of AIDS in 1991, the day after confirming he had the disease.

His real name was Farrokh Bulsara but he adopted the name he was best known by at school in India, where he grew up. His family settled in England when he was in his teens. He performed with several bands before co-founding QUEEN in 1971.

1) Rare IB-related Christmas medley on MySpace
2) Sounds of Eternity release their debut CD
3) Franco Feruglio on tour


"1) Rare IB-related Christmas medley on MySpace
If you go to IB’s MySpace page you can listen to and even download an obscure Christmas medley recorded in the early 80’s (even Mats Johansson is unsure of the exact year).

The recording features Mats on keyboards, Ingvar “Lingon” Johansson (bassist with IB until the mid-80’s), “Nalle” Bondesson (a great guitarist) and drummer Krister Larsson. The session was a one-off thing that came about when Mats was asked to do a Christmas medley by a regional radio station. The result is a mix of Swedish and international songs from Santa’s season.

Feel free to download this and play it loudly!

2) Sounds of Eternity release their debut CD

Finally! Sounds of Eternity have released their debut CD! It is called Part One and features many IB-related musicians: Fredrik “Gicken” Johansson (bass), Linnea Olsson (cello, vocals), Fredrik Davidsson (trumpet), Povel Ohlsson (drums) and Conrad Boqvist (guitar).

The album should suit anyone into IB, contemporary jazz or sophisticated pop/rock. I heartily recommend it!

Go to www.myspace.com/soundsofeternity for soundbites, more info an opportunity to contact the band or become one of Sounds of Eternity’s friends.

3) Franco Feruglio on tour Our good friend and favourite double bass player Franco Feruglio (of Metamorfosi Trio) will tour England at the end of February/beginning of March as part of composer/pianist Ludovico Einaudi’s group. They will play seven dates at some prestigious venues, such at the Barbican in London, the Corn Exchange in Cambridge and the Sage at Gateshead.

Franco described the music to me as “sweet melodic arpeggios under heartbreaking themes. Girls go mad!”

Now order your tickets! More info here

Finally, on behalf of everyone in Isildurs Bane, let me wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year!"

Catching up with some earlier news, this from 10T Records (from Dec 11):

The brand new double live CD by Frogg Café, entitled The Safenzee Diaries is currently being mastered in New York with a projected late February 2007 release planned. Featuring recordings from performances at NEARfest, the NJ Proghouse, Orion Studios in Baltimore, and Nectar's in Burlington, the double CD also incorporates live in the studio jams intertwined between tracks. Additionally, you can expect to hear energetic reworkings of classic Frogg tunes featuring different solos and sometimes entirely new arrangements, plus THREE new Frogg tunes new heard before.

Pre-orders will be taken starting in January for what promises to be an amazing document of one of the most ecclectic and dynamic live performance bands on the scene today!
